A lot of thought has clearly gone into this space strategy game's detailed and extensive structure, which could be too overwhelming for non-hardcore players. It's evident from the somewhat lengthy tutorial that Infinite Lagrange has a number of components. You can undertake various tasks while playing, ranging from sending fleets to mine resources to creating and upgrading ships. Also, you may face off against other ships, and the outcome will depend partially on what defensive aspects each has proactively put in place. But despite the initial instructions, some features -- such as how blueprints and the research process work -- aren't always immediately clear. For example, a button lights up to guide you to a page listing which tasks remain, but the actual work to complete these goals isn't always identified.

Similarly, there are limitations to the amount of decision-making players have. You can modify the weapon system on ships, for instance, but this will depend on the ship you choose, which is intended for a certain type of operation, such as utility ships for resource collection and construction, instead of a military ships, which are made for combat. The action also isn't as dynamic as expected. You'll set up operations for tasks to be performed, but battles unfold fairly slowly, and a number of actions have a waiting period before they're completed. While you can use in-app currency to speed some of that up, you're spending more time initiating actions instead of actually watching activities be performed. The game isn't bad by any means -- it's visually impressive, and the amount of elements means there's a lot to check out, which could provide an engrossing experience for older players. Younger ones might also enjoy the game, if they have the patience to learn how to play. With so many fundamentals to figure out, though, some gamers may lose interest early on and decide Infinite Lagrange is too complicated to invest that much time in.
