Overall, Everspace: Stellar Edition is a fantastic addition to any Switch library. If you already like games set in space, this is a title that is beautiful visually, controls fantastically, and sports a fitting soundtrack to boot. There are plenty of missions to complete and the stealth aspect of the game, along with the ability to upgrade your ships, weapons and defence will provide you with plenty of reasons to keep playing for many, many hours.
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: Stellar Edition isn’t the best 3D space shooter or roguelike available, but it’s a relatively unique and successful fusion of the two genres. Repetitiveness aside, you may just find yourself hooked by the game’s tight combat controls and satisfying progression loop. Unfortunately, the Switch isn’t the best way to play the game, unless portability is your top concern. Everspace for Switch isn’t for everybody, but if you fall into the game’s relatively narrow niche, a galaxy of die and retry fun awaits.
