Summary: The A.I. is too easy to anticipate. The "science" web is a bit a messy and tooooo short. The game is very (very very) similar to Master of Orion 2 and this game is still far away from an Endless ( the end come even too fast...) clone.
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.
Summary: Nothing stood out, the graphics are nice but this is a clone of GalCiv2 with better visuals. GalCiv 2 has better AI, lots of downtime in this game, I spent 140 turns before I met other races in a four player match.
Summary: I really, really, want to love this game, as I think there is always a place for good turn-based games. Aesthetically, the game is very pleasing to the eye. Planetary menus are attractive, the sounds are appropriate and the overall 'packaging' (meaning the in-game appearance) is wonderful.
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.
Summary: AWFUL BATTLE SYSTEM THAT COMPLETELY RUINS A MAJOR PART OF THE GAME The battles are pre-render boring cutscenes and you have to use cards in battles. Why they made the battle system into something like Yu-Gi-Oh is beyond me.
Lost my interest after a bit but got me to reinstall another

Summary: First off I want to say that I love these types of games and I would have given this game a much better review if the universe wasn't sooooo small. Now I expect to hear from quite a few people about why they disagree but the truth is, the universe, even set on "Huge", is tiny in comparison to other...
It was ok at first, got a little better, and is now among countless forgotten games

Summary: Endless Space is an indie, turn-based, 4x space strategy game focusing on overall strategy over combat and nitpicky micromanaging. This is the super-special edition which grants the in-game soundtrack and points which can be used to vote for product updates; it's a gimmick.
