Comment: Astro Empires – the browser based MMO is an awesome game! You can colonize planets and build huge galactic empires inside a massive galaxy. You can build massive fleets of powerful spaceships and join a guild to participate in large scale battles aginst other guilds. Sounds cool right? It should be, but sadly this game has a few critical flaws.1. The game is free to play, but you will not be able keep up with the capacities of upgraded accounts. So upgrading is a must.
2. The build time for some advanced items are ridiculous, sometimes being hundreds of hours.
3. Level protection is imbalanced. After you reach level 30 your open to attack from anyone. Their are many players Lv 150+ that can wipe out months of work in an instant.
4. The customer service and administration are horrible. Not open to suggestions or refunds, they seem indifferent to most issues. People are often suspended or banned for seemingly minor infractions.
5. Not a noob friendly game. High level players do not hit each other, and instead take great pride in running new players from the game. A visit to their heavily policed forums can confirm this.
So in short if you want to spend months of building just to have it all destroyed in an instant this game is for you.
