Project Star is currently open to Android users from December 18.
Project Star is a Tencent product published by Hero Games, players will have the experience of exploring planets, galaxies with friends, fighting dangerous creatures and protecting own territory. Because of this interesting idea, the game has received a lot of anticipation from players around the world. After testing in North America and a few other regions, Project Star has come to the SEA region via an early access release. Game4V will evaluate the game in detail through this article.
Project Star does not really have a separate storyline, players at the beginning of the game will be transported into a separate galaxy and survive and develop their own life in that distant galaxy. The AI tutorials in Project Star also focus mainly on guiding the existing mechanics and features of the game. The lack of a separate storyline will somewhat reduce the appeal of the player when it is not really clear why you are living on this planet or what your goals are. This in the long run will directly affect the attraction of the game.
The overall quality of Project Star’s graphics is relatively high, the landscape as well as the characters have good detail along with good finishing quality. The use of Unreal Engine at the same time is relatively well optimized to give the player the necessary smoothness.
Project Star allows players to freely design their own character with a system of options from basic such as skin color, hair color, gender to advanced options such as eyebrows, cheekbones, etc. Not only that, players can more or less choose the style and color for the spacesuit and spaceship to create a character that shows their personality. Due to their gameplay, encountering npc in the game is quite limited, most of the npc are in flight costumes, so it is quite difficult to observe the visual characteristics. The same goes for other players.
The world of Project Star can take star system units (including many planets) to calculate, making the number of landscapes in the game extremely diverse and rich. Each region is already a separate ecosystem with its own species of flora and fauna, not to mention that each planet includes many regions and a star system includes many planets. Indeed, some areas on the same planet have certain similarities, but the number is not too much and does not affect the player’s experience too much.
The detail of Project Star is relatively high (at the highest graphics setting), landscapes such as grass, trees, and rocky mountains can be easily observed for small details, contours, etc. v; Animals can also easily observe small details such as horns, manes, fangs, etc. Project Star also brings a day and night system to increase the realism of the game while also working relatively well. various kinds of visual effects such as shadow, contrast, perspective to add realism to the game’s world. Accompanied by visual effects, Project Star’s character movement is also quite good, moving, running, jumping, shooting are all relatively smooth; however, monsters will sometimes freeze.
Project Star’s background music is not too impressive, the melody is quite simple, partly unable to contribute to the beauty of the game. Accompanied by the sound when players exploit resources, when fighting, it only stops at a sufficient level, not too bad but also does not create a highlight. In addition, the game sometimes has a sudden increase in sound (when the player opens the inventory) accidentally creating discomfort during the experience.
In addition, due to the multiplayer factor, the mic feature is also added to the game, the sound quality as well as the transmission line are of good quality, there is no distortion or loss of voice.
Belonging to the sandbox genre with more multiplayer elements, Project Star can be said as a No Man Sky on mobile. Tencent’s product focuses on the experience of exploring planets and galaxies while also allowing players to survive, build bases, and develop life on alien planets. In addition to experiencing Project Star as a single game, players can also form teams with friends or other players to explore more strange and mysterious lands.
Basically, the mechanics of Project Star, including resource extraction, equipment making or base building, are relatively familiar, accessible and not really too different from the same games. type. The difference compared to other games of the same type is that players will use high-tech weapons and equipment (sonic extraction machines) instead of equipment (axes, hammers).
Fighting in the game will mainly be gun battles, the player’s enemies are also mainly dangerous creatures on the planet or some out of control robots. The progress in these battles will depend mainly on the player’s equipment, but in general these battles are not too difficult, the number of enemies the player has to face at the same time is not too large,” said the stats. smart” is not too high.
Features and game modes
As well as the gameplay, Project Star’s feature system is not too different from other games of the same type. Most of the features revolve around the character as well as the construction and exploitation mechanism of the game such as features to upgrade equipment, items or features related to learning technology, etc. Also some features Other basic features like friends, inventory, etc. will also be included in the game.
Project Star doesn’t really have separate game modes, these game modes will often focus right on the map as a kind of quest for players to explore. It can be exploring a mysterious area, fighting some dangerous creatures, etc. In addition, the player can play single or team up with friends is also an interesting highlight of the game. .
Overall Project Star is a relatively enjoyable experience (especially when playing with friends). Impressive graphics when making good use of Unreal Engine technology to give players a super-large, diverse and rich world in both the landscape as well as the flora and fauna system, and the detail is also relatively high. ensure the realism, vividness for this world. In addition, the good exploitation of the theme of the galaxy, the universe also brings many new things to the player. The final advantage is that the game optimizes well on mid-range devices to minimize lag and jerky phenomena that were present in previous tests.
Despite its many advantages, Project Star also has limitations. The first limitation is that the music of the game, not to mention that the music of the game is not too impressive, sometimes the sound of the game is suddenly enlarged, creating discomfort for the player (occurring when opening the game). inventory). The second limitation is that the gameplay is quite simple, there are not many differences to really create a highlight. Finally, the game requires a relatively high configuration to be able to set the highest graphics level, which invisibly creates a limitation for players when they can’t fully enjoy the beauty of Project Star with other games. average device. However, since this is still a pre-access version, the production team was still able to refine Project Star and really turn the game into a great product.
