Summary: There was a lot to like about the game actually but i found the tech tree to be very confusing, I had no real idea of where i was going with research and no real way to find out - at least as far as i could tell - which left me frustrated and i stopped playing it pretty quickly.
Summary: This game turned out to be an invalid copy according to customer service at Stardock. I got the game for Christmas from my son using my daughter's Amazon account. I had trouble registering it and contacted stardock via email.
Summary: I tried to play it and just got bogged down with all the things going on. The battle scenes were pretty bad and mostly I just hated the times of waiting for something to be researched so I could research something else.
Summary: It's a bit shameful that I would be giving this game a one-star review, since the bottom line is this: I played it several hours a day for almost two months and got a ton of enjoyment out of it. And it only cost me about twenty dollars! How's that for value?
Summary: I've played the Civilization series and enjoyed it a lot, and because GC2DL is so similar in concept and execution it was familiar and appealing to me from the outset. It's also pretty simple to master for anyone experienced in 4x games.
Summary: Very much like the "Civilization" game in that it is turn-based, you play against computer AI, customizable settings and lots of in-game information to process. Even includes governors to help avoid micro-managing headaches. Highly recommend title this to anyone.
