Default Any recommendations for a good Space Game?

I try to give Galaxy On Fire 2 a chance time and time again but I can't ever seem to get into the game. Anyone have any good space sims they play? One time purchases or one with iaps. It doesn't matter to me. Star Command doesn't have much going anymore either. Played the game to death.

Haven't played it but Out There sounds like it could be quite good.

By "sim" do you mean managing resources and stuff (like mining and trading in GoF 2) or space combat sims?

I haven't gotten Out There because it sounds more like the former and I have trouble getting into those games. If it's space combat, the new Beyond Space is pretty good as is Strike Wing (less story but good dogfighting). But honestly don't think there's been a true classic yet in that category.

My favorite space game was Space Miner (TA game of the year, 2010) [thread]. But as AWP says, not sure what type of space games you're into.

Star Trader RPG is nice.

FTL will be great when it comes to iOS.

All of those are good suggestions depending on which side of the fence you're on (space management vs combat). Space Miner was one of those games that did a great job of strattling the line between the two (although the combat is not first-person).

As for more combat oriented, Star Battalion is another good one (yes, it's Gameloft and cheesy but still fun for a more arcade like space combat game ala Rogue Squadron).

I came here to suggest GoF 2 :/
I couldn't get into the game for the first 2 or 3 hours either, but then it sucked me in and *BAM* I suddenly had 25 hours of playtime and didn't even touch the super-nova expansion yet.

Also, Drifter (when it releases).
