Stellaris: Console Edition is a solid port of what is easily Paradox Interactive's most accessible grand strategy game. While Stellaris has evolved and grown over the past three years on PC, the base game is still a good solid grand strategy title with some intriguing ideas for storytelling and managing an endgame, though without some of the depth of their other titles. More importantly, wrapped a controller and TV friendly interface around the game that puts control over even the grandest of empires well within your grasp.
So, in conclusion, we can safely say there's not much like Stellaris on PS4 and Xbox One. This is not your typical console strategy experience, rather it's something you can really sink your teeth into. If you're a casual gamer who likes action, walk away. However, if you want depth, intrigue and an experience that will keep you playing for hours, check it out. Just clear your schedule for a few days, as this is a game that wants you to invest in the long-term.
With Stellaris: Console Edition, that feeling comes often, only now, it’s coming from the comfort of my couch. The changes made to accomodate gamepads and consoles work remarkably well, even if some much needed changes are still waiting in the wings. Does it come close to the level of satisfaction brought by playing Stellaris on a PC? Not yet. Is it still a remarkable strategy game that is worth your time on consoles? Most definitely.
