Summary: I have never before given a bad review on a game in a series I liked, but they just really messed up with MOO3..... was a complete failure compared to #1 or 2... :/ First game I have considered trying to get a refund for was just terrible.
Summary: MOO-III is the latest (and with any justice in the universe, the last) of a space-based series of resource-management strategy games. I was a big fan of the last version, which was a marvel of slick, intuitive controls, engrossing combat/empire management, and cheesy (but fun!) graphics.
Summary: I reviewed this game when it first came out (I was even one of the fools to pre-order the stupid thing), but I wanted to give an update. I recently downloaded DOSbox and started playing MOOII again, and WOW! I forgot how fun this game was.
Summary: i am coming at this from a moo2 perspective. i am a big fan of that game. when i initially purchases moo3 a year or more ago, i sat down and impatiently tried to learn the game. i only spent about an hour or less and i gave up. what was i missing?
Summary: Being a MOO fan, I was stoked when Moo2 came out. I bought it, played it, and fell in love with it. Then Moo 3 comes out. "AWSOME! I'M THERE!" was my thinking. Ohh would I ever be disappointed! The micromanagment that I so enjoyed from Moo2 is gone.
Summary: Nothing like MOO2. This game is clunky, takes forever, and is, to be blunt, terribly boring. There are some good ideas, but they got too complicated with everything, and it's not fun to play. The only way I'd recommend trying this game is if you can get it extremely cheap (try eBay). My guess?
Summary: I unfortunately purchased MOO3 when it was eventually released, happened to be surfing Amazon.com tonight, and decided to read some of the reviews of MOO3. After reading a number of them (especially the favorable ones), I felt compelled to submit this review of MOO3 as hopefully the final word on...
Summary: This game is so terrible that it's amazing it was ever released. Many of this game's positive reviewers have speculated that perhaps those who don't like the game simply haven't taken the time to thoroughly understand it. Let me assure you, this isn't the case.
Summary: Wish I could give it 0 stars. Too bad. I shelled out $50 like a chump. Now they're giving it away almost. Still not worth the $15 Amazon is charging. Maybe $.01. Actually they'd have to pay me knowing what I know now. No redeeming qualities.
