Are there any good Sci-Fi ARPGs?

Like Torchlight 2, Diablo 2 PoE etc... I really like these games, but the fantasy setting is getting old for me, so are there any good Sci-Fi games like this?

Drox Operative is a great example of what you're looking for. It takes the ARPG formula, drops it in space, and gives it a bunch of AI races playing a 4X game in the background.

looks pretty cool. I'll probably end up picking it up.

Any that aren't as a ship though? Where you play a character like the fantasy ones I mentioned.

Not exactly sci-fi, but there is Marvel Heroes for a change of scenery.

Does Alien Swarm count for something like this?

Krater is kinda that, I suppose, though it's more post-apocalyptic, and you control a 3 man squad instead of a single person.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

Yeah that is what actually lead me to ask if there was any good ones since that one is just so bland and average.

Krater


Is that game any fun? The low metascore is kind of scary..

Phantasy Star Online /2 is likely going to be the only one you'll need.

Too bad, like it's name, it's primarily online only.
