    This is a unique product because it has toys-to-life elements but refuses to push players down that path if they don’t want to. Though the gameplay loop can grow repetitive over a long play sessions, the fact that players have so many customization options and a beautiful world at their hands keeps most frustrations away. Ubisoft Toronto has a vision for this game and it’s apparent there are more stories to tell since each character of the Equinox brims with personality. Space is a vast expanse, full of new worlds to explore and toys to make.

    Starlink: Battle for Atlas is a great new take on the concept of toys to life. Also, it presents a very interesting view of an open world game.

    A fine game for all ages that excels in the presence of awesomely detailed physical ships. Within the toy-to-life genre this comes as a great surprise that really delivers on the fun factor. The difficulty is a little bit unbalanced unfortunately which is somewhat inconvenient, considering the audience this game caters to. The gameplay tends to be repetitive by nature but on the flipside there is an enormous galaxy for you to explore in which there is plenty to see and do. The game plays well overall and the in-game customization of your ships is deep enough to keep you entertained for a long time to come.

    While it’s not perfect, Starlink is a fantastic base for a new wave of toys-to-life games, innovating on the genre in a special way that further connects players with both the toys and the experience. And even when the game is off, for this 30-year old gamer at least, the spaceships are still fun to play with.

    With or without the unnecessary toys, Starlink: Battle for Atlas is a commendable space adventure. Even with the repetitive grind and randomly scattershot space combat, this is a great-looking, gratifying game of strategic action and environmental exploration. Switch owners are undoubtedly the winners, but there’s something here to enjoy on any platform.

    Starlink: Battle for Atlas has moments of exciting combat, neat customization, and some engaging mechanics. However, this new intergalactic action adventure suffers an engine misfire due to a ton of repetition, occasionally awkward controls, and a lackluster story.
