I'm liking Drox Operative much better so far and am not sure why. I played Space Pirates and Zombies in beta also but didn't get very far or download the final version.
Without starting a flame war, i'm interested in anyone commenting on the differences/similarities.
To me Drox is like Dins/DOP with Star Control II elements.
When I played SPAZ I just remember thinking it was Star Control II lite.

I like both too, for different reasons. Drox has the Soldak feeling, in the menus, the numerous options, and a 3/4 perspective view that I love, whereas SPAZ has the most beautiful backgrounds and a very airy music. Both have action and a sens of urgeness. My advice is to buy both!

Spaz looked great in picture, and concept, but when i played it, i couldn't get over the 'arcady' feel, did not like. I am hoping this game will go for a more capital ship feel

You didn't play SPAZ enough. There are plenty of capital ships in the late game.
I think you should be able to use more than 1 weapon at a time on a ship. I haven't bought DROX yet, just my impressions from the videos.

You can, but you have to have a lot of energy to use two weapons efficiently.
It's much better to think of Drox Operative as Diablo (or Din's Curse, whatever) in space. SPAZ has much more depth in its mechanics and resembles a traditional 4X strategy game more. Drox is basically an action-RPG draped on top of a 4X background, and the strategy is mostly superficial (at least right now). Both games are good but I don't think I'd want to directly compare them.
