Summary: I keep wanting to come back to this game because the gameplay is so varied, you get a lot of choices in ship design, and playing with friends is really exciting and fun. It's approximately Civilization in Space, with much better customization of your military, pretty easy management of your territories, and awesome cinematic battle sequences.
A promising 4X entry that doesn't quite live up to that promise

Summary: Ok. To be honest, 3.5 is probably the right number, as it has a lot going for it. In particular, fit and polish is very good. Visuals are attractive and the sounds are pleasant, even for the long play times that strategy games tend to have. The interface is also quite intuitive, which means that one doesn't spend so much time trying to figure out how to do routine things, and more time actually doing them. The problems with the game are mechanics-driven, mostly.
Summary: I made a custom faction, and it was bugged. I did not realize it till I was dozens of hours into the game. But i could not upgrade my fleet size.so I'm stuck at 7 for the size of my fleet instead of 22+. Usless hours spent, I found a bug post from the dev saying yeah that doesn't work right. Okay, so I won't create my own race...fine. I'm not 200+ turns in another game and constant crashing. Has to do with rally points/retreats.
Summary: I purchased this download, then spent hours trying to get it to work. Fugget about it! All I could get after downloading it was "failed to connet to server" when I clicked on Play. Same thing the next day. I have a relatively new HP computer with Windows 7 and an i7 processor, and I've never had trouble with other games. Don't waste your money on this download.
Summary: Very Complex... in a bad way. If the tutorial was better it might be a 4 star...maybe. I will say I love Amazon's customer service 100% helpful in everyway! Even the installing process was confusing but Amazon walked me through it step by step. But I doubt they can walk me through how to play this game... so my review stands as a 2 star..
Summary: This is a beautiful game and I absolutely couldn't get enough of it for the first couple of weeks. The tech trees allow for a variety of different play styles and the descriptions of the techs themselves are interested and sometimes even fairly funny. Building your own ships is fun but I didn't particularly care for the "Rock, Paper, Scissors" battle mechanics in which you pick a few cards and hope that your cards trump the other guy's cards.
Summary: This 4X game is totally awesome. It runs well in Win7 64-bit. I've played these type of games since the original MOO, and this one is AWESOME! I run the game in 1600x900 since my graphics card slows down in 1920x1024. The game looks fabulous. Endless Space is a turn based space conquest strategy game. Battles play out in real time, but you get to choose a tactics card for the three battle phases - long rang, medium range, and melee.
Summary: Anyone out there who has wandered aimlessly from space strategy to space strategy looking for something to fill the addictive void left in your life by the Master of Orion series...this game is for you. It's not perfect (what game is?) but I love Endless Space and I'm totally hooked. The great: * It's beautiful! Graphically fantastic. * The interface and controls are intuitive, simple, efficient, and utterly useful.
Summary: Great game but crashes once too often. Everytime i start a game it gets to a point where you can't progress forward without it crashing so i have to start all over. I want to be able to finish an entire game someday. It get two more stars if it didnt crash.
