Summary: Its not so much that I hate, I haven't gotten to it. It requires a "Steam" pre-program and that doesn't work. I e-mailed the Steam people, no response. I guess I just have to watch for that. Just disapointed.
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.
Summary: Game is endlessly boring. After having to sit through 20 - 30 turns waiting on a ship to be built a pirate ship materializes and destroys it so I have to start over. This does not happen once but multiple times and on any difficulty setting.
Summary: I really wanted to like this game, but after playing it feel that I was a victim of the pre-release hype machine. As a long-time strategy gamer, I'm mystified by all the high scores people have given it on Metacritic. Fanboys I guess.
Summary: The Steam video was impressive, lots of action, the promise of a really good space adventure comparable to Masters of Orion from years back. I bought the Deluxe version with the Dreadnaught and off I went to play... end turn... end turn... end turn... end turn... end turn...
Summary: I am having great difficulty in getting the game started , the manual is not really very clear although on reflection this may be me rather than the product but it is frustrating having paid £30 for a product at this current time I cannot play.
