...ual gamer as it is very very time consuming, it's realistic and verges between a simulator and a space fighting game. The missions might be grindy, but it doesn't feel like it because you feel a sense of achievement after you complete the missions because everything you do it affects the system, same for when you explore the rest of the unknown galaxy, space is massive, and makes you feel insignificant in the wider scope of things and to be honest that's okay with me. Powerplay gives you a chance to make a real change in who you want to control the system and how you can help them succeed. The game is so deep, saying its grindy, can turn people away, it's all about personal achievement in this game. I've clocked over 50 hours of this game after i bought it 3 days ago.
