    Everspace is the most open ended space shooter on Switch. It is highly replayable and there is still plenty more for me to see and do. The segmented, sector-by-sector gameplay is perfect for on-the-go play. It employs its genre better than most and manages not to feel too repetitive even as you die over and over again. This is a game that will be at the top of my Switch home screen for a long time to come.

    Everspace took me a while to warm up to, but once I changed my control layout and started getting better at the dogfighting aspects, the game became a lot more fun. Between finding resources to survive and picking my fights with nearby outlaws or running away so I could live to fight another sector, Everspace never really feels like the same run twice, and that’s definitely a good thing.

    The roguelike elements make this a perfect fit to portable pickup and play with a very lenient save system.

    While reminding us just how much we’d love to see FTL on Switch, Everspace manages to carve out an impressive identity for itself. With gratifying space combat, an addictive ‘rogue-lite’ core loop and even some light, entertaining writing along the way, it performs admirably – if not flawlessly – on Nintendo’s console. Overall, we had a hell of a time with it and this port does a cracking job of preserving the full experience on a handheld. If any of this sounds remotely enticing, we’d heartily recommend investigation.

    Everspace is full of content...and of challenges too, this space-based roguelike features a motivating and dynamic world where it's easy to get lost and to get engaged in frantic combats, thanks to its steep difficulty curve. A very solid, satisfying and demanding production which will certainly keep its players around the Nintendo Switch for a long time.

    A great title with very funny mechanics as long as we are able to accept low quality textures, the angle of the camera and some beautiful cosmic environments.

    I really want to be able to recommend Everspace – Stellar Edition on the Switch, but playing it makes me really just want to go pick the game up for PC.
