Summary: One of best 4x games made. It stands out with core game play complexity making room for strategic thinking and challenges. Ship designs while lack actual component placement on ship template it pays back with huge variety of them.
Summary: Coming to this game as a longgggg time Civ4 player looking for the perfect strategy game experience, something I could play for years and never get tired of. Learning curve is steep, you will be frustrated at first, like most 4X games.
Summary: This is one of the few games that I have ever paid full price for, and I must say, it should be regarded as one of the best additions to the 4x genre ever produced. Considering the size of the development team (basically one guy), the wealth of features, and its sheer replay value, there is...
Summary: Distant Worlds Universe is a gem. It is so vast and in the same time so simple to get into. I never played a game that can adjust to player in so many ways. If you have time and will you can micromanage everything, or you could let capable AI to do it for you.
Summary: There is most definitely a learning curve here, but this game is fantastic once you get over it! Look up some guides on how to start as pre warp and play manually. After that you will understand enough of about the game to set whatever you want to auto.
Summary: One of the best 4X games I´ve ever played. Together with the very active modding community this game means endless fun for hours. Already played 240 hours since i bought it a couple of months ago. I was lucky to find it by accident. Would miss it badly now.
Summary: What a joke. This game was clearly programmed by amateurs (college students on their first year maybe ?). The inventory is extremely cluttered and hard to read. It's like Sins of the Solar Empire, but worse in most aspects. Not creative and doesn't bring anything new to the genre.
Summary: I've used Metacritic a lot, but this is the first game that urged me to sign up and write a review. I've also played many sci-fi 4X games, and this has to be one of the best. It's not new and it looks a little dogeared compared to other titles (although I love the native Windows UI; you can even...
Summary: This game has an insane amount of depth behind it, and yet it does a very good job of handling the learning curve. There is a set of tutorials which explain the interface, a whole in-game encyclopedia, and the ability to choose which aspects of your empire you control and which are simulated.
Summary: The scope and underlying detail in Distant Worlds: Universe is outstanding, but the game suffers from some basic (and correctable) AI flaws. A single ship within a fleet can become injured or run out of fuel and the rest of the fleet will basically sit paralyzed for a decade until your construction...
