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. A shame really because in many ways its a great game and i want to recommend it but the general confusion regarding research really stopped me from enjoying it.
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. It took them from Christmas 2012 until 5 February 2013 to tell me that, "I'd suggest returning the game as it appears to not be legitimate and buying a new copy from us".
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. I didn't like the ships movement either as I couldn't see how far they would travel when I sent them out. Very frustrating. I think they should have made it more of a gradual learning phase instead of needing to know all that at the beginning.
Summary: this game is a hell of alot of fun it didn't take me long to get into it, my favorite raCe is the humans (weird huh) but i'm here to review the game so you want to know what it's like then this game is a hell of alot of fun it didn't take me long to get into it, my favorite raCe is the humans (weird huh) but i'm here to review the game so you want to know what it's like then...
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? There were times I felt the game had been programmed by a twin version of myself who knew exactly the kind of game I would like. The point is, this is great game and I really enjoyed almost all of it.
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. It's well-made for the most part, from the space art and ship design to the music and inspired sense of humor (Monty Python In Space!).
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. Can even run the game with older model system with lower end graphics (64mb RAM on-board video).
Summary: The game has many glitches. Saving is a chore once you get farther along in your game. This game can hardly be categorized as a true video game. It is like a board game on the computer. Not a great buy.
