A good strategy game

Tarheel1990

I think it is ALOT Better. One small change in this game has made it a five star game in my opinion. Earlier I rated a two star due to play balance issues but the programmers have listen to our pleas. The easier level of difficulty have taken some of the frustration out of this game actually had one of the better experiences I've had so far. The newer levels make quite a bit of difference Without the easiest level being too easy. I still felt that it was a close battle in the end.

I can highly recommend this game at this point and appreciate the extra work the designers have put into this.

Good idea with serious balance problems

Chris Farrell

Shifts is a great concept for a game, and they did a nice job with the graphics, but the actual game-balance is terrible. Hull crises kick you into a death spiral since you can't fix the damage and solve the crisis at the same time. The huge galaxy makes finding 3 habitable planets a matter of sheer luck and the game is virtually impossible to win. It would have been easy enough to have different difficulty levels which set the size of the galaxy, but no dice, there is only one difficulty level. Very frustrating, some outside playtesting might have made this a fun game, but as it is now the high difficulty and ease of getting into pointless death spirals just makes the game dull.
