  2. If only I could ignore everything in SR2 that isn't the turn based space combat or a text adventure.

    This game is like a revenant. It's a good game, but still...

    I enjoyed playing, but its lacking a bit of actual characterization, that would make it outstanding

    If the Russian version is anything to go by it will be $15. Can't complain about the milking if they are going to price it that well.

    I do hope that a true SR3 is in the works though.

    the developers of Space rangers are also the same the developers of King's Bounty. This HD version is made by a third party or some group of "modders"

    Apparently I was too excited and mixed up SR2's genre with Total War and Civilization...

    Wow, how many times has this game been released and re-released and had expansions released? The game is almost 10 years old now, so why haven't they made a Space Rangers 3 instead of rehashing the same old game over and over?

    are you daft? that requires actual effort...
    But really i think the reason behind it is that the game should really get more attention, its solid, fun and creative, still obscure for most people because it has been buried unfairly again and again by mountains of shit people like to call games. So their answer to that is "Fuck it, well just release it again". they are bound to get noticed eventually, or thats what they probably think.

    It's better than the remaster of Reboot (I don't even understand what's this Revolution version is), with addition of new plot line and stuff. The 10 new text adventures could also be what the original Russian version of Reboot introduced, which are not in the English version.

    This game was not re-released that much actually, only officially twice in English - the original Space Rangers 2, and the expanded Space Rangers 2 - Reboot. The Reboot version in English was as mentioned before not even perfect, as it didn't include the new text adventures. Personally I think this game is worth to be released again even after 10 years. If people will buy ancient GOG games priced at 10 then why not buy this one too? It's quite a nice game. The only "bad" part is the RTS, which is actually not bad in itself, as the RTS AI is very good, the maps are very well designed, and the robot designing, and FPS shooting are fun.

    SR:Revolution was a free unofficial expansion or something. I'm not sure what that works out to be or who did it. My understanding is that the original SR2 team is gone by now and that Reboot/Revolution/HD has been some kind of half community mod half skeleton dev crew project. Someone who knows Russian can probably tell you a lot more than I can though.

    SR2 is kind of what a 4x played from the standpoint of a single independent unit would be like.

    Great game but barring a complete retranslation of all in-game text to be less awkward I don't think this needs another rerelease

    I second this. The slightly mistranslated text gave the game a subtle charm.

    The bad translation/writing in the text adventure stuff was genuinely unpleasant and made me avoid them.

    We are glad to inform you, that the release date of the game is now confirmed! Rangers would be able to free (or destroy) the Galaxy on October 17th on Steam! Also, a bit later there will be a retail DVD release (but discs also require Steam activation) in Europe. Country list and exact date for retail version will be specified within a few days.
    And small teaser in the end of message: when game will be available in stores, the Galaxy Rating of Rangers will be laucnhed on this site, and everyone in every place in the all known Universe can compete with another rangers in killing dominators and pirates, trade and so on!


    Gotta finish Arcanum ASAP to prepare for this awesomeness
