The game places players in the cockpit of a spacecraft equipped for both atmospheric and deep space missions. Unlike many space simulators of its time, Starglider II introduced a fully explorable solar system with planets, moons, and space stations, each with their own unique characteristics and challenges. This open-world approach allowed players to navigate through space freely, choosing their path and engaging in various missions and battles.

One of the most notable features of Starglider II is its real-time, first-person space combat. Players engage in battles against enemy spacecraft, using a range of weapons and tactics to outmaneuver and defeat opponents. The combat is fast-paced and requires quick reflexes, strategic thinking, and effective management of the spacecraft's resources. In addition to combat, the game includes elements of exploration and puzzle-solving. Players can discover hidden items and secrets scattered throughout the solar system, and certain missions require solving puzzles to progress. This variety in gameplay keeps the experience fresh and engaging.

Starglider II's graphics were cutting-edge for its time, with smooth 3D vector graphics that provided a realistic and immersive depiction of space. The spacecraft and environmental designs are simple yet effective, conveying the vastness and mystery of outer space. The game also features a dynamic day-night cycle on planets, adding to the realism and depth of the gaming world. For fans of the genre, Starglider II remains a classic, showcasing the potential of space simulation games in the late 1980s.
