Universe Sandbox Review

We all know that one destructive maniac hellbent on destroying Earth, the Sun, or sometimes Mars. Well, you could pretend to be that person in Universe Sandbox ², or you could just pretend that you are literally nature - it's surreal and fun.

I wish there were more built in solar systems beside our own. Other than that, this game is great.

Not a game per se, but a solid simulation with lots of silliness thrown in just for fun. Perfect gift for someone who is a space buff like myself. Constantly being further developed, and only gets more fun with each update. Solid buy!

I think the concept of this game is fantastic. On the one hand, you can destroy everything, but on the other hand the feature I love the most is building everything from scratch. The game is laggy and unstable sometimes so it can be annoying. But in general, it's a great sandbox of the universe.
