Master of Orion 3

Deaf Gamers

  • Conclusion: It's fair to say that this isn't the sequel that fans of the series were expecting. It's cumbersome, infuriating and downright exasperating. However persevere with it and you will see that it's not all bad and a with a whole lot of effort on your part it could be worthwhile. However for most it will be just too complicated and frankly unappealing.

  • Conclusion: In summary, MOO3 is downright maddening. It could use a good tutorial to get players over the learning “cliff”. In many instances, especially further into the game, it is simple to just allow the AI to run the Empire, but then the player becomes a mere automaton – pressing the turn button over and over – not really controlling anything, just observing. Regrettably, MOO3 boils down to this.

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: Of all the games that I review, 4X have got to be the most difficult. How do you decide when you’ve played enough? One complete game? Ten complete games? Do you count false starts? Or maybe you go by the time that you play – one hour, five hours, ten hours. Many games you just finish them – Nightfire, Lord of the Rings, Dragon’s Lair 3D. With 4X that’s not an option. So, how much MOO3 is enough? That’s hard to say, but I can tell you that a little MOO3 goes a long way.

Master of Orion 3 - Krampf im Weltall

  • Excerpt: Planetenangriff: In diesem kargen Menü koordinieren Sie die Invasion von Planeten mit Bodentruppen. [Quelle: ] Etwas mehr als sechs Jahre ist es nun her, dass Master of Orion 2 Maßstäbe im Rundenstrategie-Genre setzte; das Sci-Fi-Spektakel von Entwickler Simtex galt zu Recht lange Zeit als das Nonplusultra der Rundenstrategie.

  • Summary: Впрочем, одна действительно интересная вещь в игре все-таки присутствует. Это звуковой «напоминатель», который можно установить на любое время. Проще говоря, будильник. Дабы вы совсем уж не окунались в процесс и помнили, что помимо МoО3 есть на свете еще немало интересного. Пожалуй, такая красивая штука больше пригодилась бы первым двум частям сериала. Классическая дилогия была своего рода магнитом, притягивающим намертво (за уши).

  • Conclusion: Master of Orion 3 macht Spaß. Nein, Korrektur!! Es wird Spaß machen, wenn Quicksilver flugs ein paar Patches nachschiebt und neben der Diplomatie-KI auch die Bedienung etwas erleichtert. Es kann doch nicht angehen, dass einfachste Handlungen in wüsten Klickorgien enden. Später, im Laufe des Spiels, wenn der Automatismus der KI greift und dieser fast alles alleine macht, klickt man teilweise schon vor Langeweile auf das „Nächste Runde“-Symbol, in der Hoffnung, dass...
