Who said rocket science wasn’t FOR EVERYBODY! Kerbal Space Program puts you in charge of the recently launched space program for a fun & clever alien race – the Kerbals. These little guys are counting on you to build spaceships, rockets & vehicles that can take off & hold on during COOL space travel missions, without hurting them in the process… EXPLORE SPACE, DISCOVER NEW PLANETS AND CONQUER THE UNIVERSE You’ll have a collection of parts & tools to accomplish this, each one with unique functionalities that will affect your ship & it’s chances of taking off (or crashing). THIS ALL HAPPENS IN A Realistic, physics-based space flight simulator that ensures everything will fly (or crash) as it should in real life. The game offers three gameplay modes: Sandbox, where you’re free to build anything your imagination can come up with; Science Mode lets you perform scientific experiments & advance the knowledge of Kerbals to unlock new technologies; and Career Mode, where you control every aspect of the space program, including crew management, reputation building, as well as embarking on side missions called “contracts” to earn funds & upgrade your space center facilities (or repair them). Moving on to deep space, KSP lets you capture asteroids (in game levels designed in collaboration with NASA), launch mining programs to find resources across the furthest reaches of the galaxy & build space stations in all the planets you discover. It all adds up to this award-winning game that has taken the space sim genre by storm. Fun facts • The vehicle assembly buildings & space plane hangars allow players to build spaceships, rockets & vehicles using any imaginable combination of parts. • Realistic, physics-based space flight simulation ensures everything will fly (or crash) as it should in real life. • You’re free to take your Kerbal crew out of ships for “extra-vehicular” activities. • Discover new moons & planets. • KSP delivers detailed terrain at a vast scale. The Kerbal planet alone is 600km in radius! • Keep an eye out for engine temperatures and fuel levels or your ship will explode… not that it isn’t fun! • Full control over the ship’s setup allows for complex flight maneuvers & advanced functionality. • Dock your spacecrafts together to build space stations, massive starships or surface bases on new planets. • Manage your crewmembers, from hiring & training to sending them onto space to become heroes. • Research & develop new technologies to advance the Kerbal's space program. • Extract valuable resources from all over the galaxy • And a whole lot more!

if you like space give it a try!

i like the ceativity of this game. there are a few game modes wich make this game fun to try them all out. the graphics are ok but you can get some great views. going to the moon for the first time gives you such a goog feeling. the plane part is i bit glichy for me but i think its a bug. over all this game i great and its worth a try!

Needs safe area adjustment

This game i really great! Of course if you know what you are doing. The main problem is the safe area, there should be an option to change it! Recommend to play this, it's a never ending voyage! (Safe area in game definition: Where the boundary of your view is. For anyone who dosen't know what it is)

I played this on PC and fell in love with it. Nearly messing myself when I saw it here on Xbox! It's not for someone looking for a simple flying game, it's for someone who wants to understand and challenge themselves. You HAVE to pay attention to drag, lift, thrust, gravity, and center of mass closely. Other than the interface glitches and some twitchy behaviors on builds it's amazing and I would give full stars.

Needs an update and mod support.

It has lots of bugs, which can have hilarious results, but can also be a huge problem. I've had the game since it was ported to console and have yet to see an update. I still have plenty of fun with it, though. It could also use mod support. I play it on my PC as well, so I miss mods like MechJeb and Infernal Robotics when I play on my Xbox one.

game runs very poorly, even though graphics are hard set to very low. console controls wouldn't actually be that much of a pain, if it wasn't for the HuD glitches in this OLD ver of the game. speaking of that, there are much more painful glitches than making controls harder. save file fragmentation/ complete evaporation (of endless hours in career mode) is VERY common. of course, no mod support, at all. and game since launch isn't even being patched for the current broken ver that it launched in, let alone upgrading to new ver.

The Best but still has its ups and downs

The game is really fun but hard to play with a controller and it doesn't have everything the pc has but in the end its still a great game cant wait for more to come.

I have been waiting for a game like this to arrive, and it's finally here! If you have a creative and imaginitive mind like I do, it's a perfect match. I love the feature on exploration and how you can build what you want. However, I wish the game did get updated more, even a simple bug fix would be amazing, given that there are a lot of bugs present.
