Space Rangers 2 gets some love at GameSpot

GameSpot offers up a review of Space Rangers 2: The Dominators. They score it at a 8.1/10 and don't really say a hell of a lot other than a feature summary. Anyway, here's an example:

The galaxy of Space Rangers 2 is a dynamic one, as hundreds of ships travel between the dozens of planetary systems conducting trade, warfare, and more. More importantly, everything you do affects your reputation with the various factions in the game, and so doing a favor for one side might mean hacking off another, which may result in finding a bunch of battleships on your tail or having to bribe your way back into a planet's good graces. Combat in the game is surprisingly deep, but also fast-paced. Space Rangers 2 is a turn-based game, but it feels like real time. That's because it uses a simultaneous resolution phase, which means that everyone plots out moves for the turn, and then all the moves are resolved simultaneously.​
So, phase based combat? Nifty. Too bad the reviewer doesn't talk any more about it than this!
