Star Reach is a 1994 science fiction real-time strategy video game for DOS by Interplay Entertainment,[1][2] released under the title Space Federation in Europe.

The purpose of the game is to lead one of seven species (humans and six other alien species) in a race to rule the universe, one galaxy at a time.

Reception[edit]

A reviewer for Next Generation commented that though Star Reach "attempts to bring the best elements of arcade play and strategy together", it lacks any innovative or unique feature aside from the world building elements. He further criticized that the two-player mode "usually boil[s] down to who hits whom first", and gave the game two out of five stars.[3]
