No, this isn't anywhere near as good a deal as last month's crazy Impulse Driven bargain. For now, though, Direct2Drive are flaunting the cheapest price around by miles.
Usually we like a space strategy game to provide a deep and thoughtful gameplay experience, but sometimes all we really want is to blow some stuff up. Gratuitous Space Battles provides just that: massive battles between huge, ridiculous fleets without backstory or that annoying diplomacy getting in the way of massive lasery explosions. It’s a little like a cross between tower defence and standard 2D RTS games, and whilst it’s certainly no Homeworld, I’d highly recommend it at this price.
