"Starcluster 2 a donc évolué, en bien, depuis sa première mouture ; le système est facile d'accès, et donc à conseillé aux débutants, mais il est suffisamment réaliste pour plaire à tous"
Félix Ze Barde, Chroniques de l'Imaginaire
"Sci-fi games are usually hit or miss, and while publishing games based on established science fiction like Star Wars or Star Trek are safer, Starcluster is a complex and comprehensive universe that most sci-fi fans will want to play in."
