Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Detailed ship design
Most things in Aurora are very detailed, especially the ship design. Parts are individually designed and researched, and come with trade-offs and benefits.
Con No accessible as more popular titles of the genre
The game is mainly text based, which may not be appealing to many. On top of this the game is incredibly detailed to the point that you could spend hours just tweaking one small aspect of the game such as design specs of a laser. With little hand holding or explanations on how to play it will take a lot of forum reading to figure out much of the game as well as tons of trial an error.
