Ok, maybe.

Wayne Hicks, Amazon

  • Summary: Interesting and intuitive interface. Micro management yields ambiguous results. Hard to pick up again after you leave it for a few days. A bit tiresome to play overall. MOO 1&2 were better for me.

Maybe I am just slow

Caila West, Amazon

  • Summary: But I can't make any sense of this game. I loved MOO2 and was excited about the graphics/ more you could do in this version. But it was kind of a chore to play. Maybe they need to try again!

Too much simulation, too little interaction

J. Loscheider, Amazon
4 June 2008
  • Summary: The so-called 4X games may not be my forté, but I can't see how MOO3 really fits into the category of "game". You need a great deal of patience and a desire to drop interactivity in exchange for thoroughness of simulation. Oh, you can do everything in this game. You can terraform.

A somewhat positive review!!!

Craig B., Amazon
2 August 2005
  • Summary: Everything bad that you've heard about this game is true. But, after playing it for a while, it got rather addicting. When I first started playing it I couldn't stand it. But, out of shear boredom, I kept at it. After some time I couldn't pull myself away from it.

Trying to be fair on all aspecs of this title....

Adam J. Ruggieri, Amazon
16 September 2004
  • Summary: Allow me to try and write a review based upon countless hours of play and analyzing the layout and structure. First, this is a 4x, DEEP strategy title. When first starting the game, leaving the help hints on and seriously reading them can help you better understand the workings.

Requires extraordinary patience to learn, but...

Elizabeth R. Powell, Amazon
4 April 2004
  • Summary: ...it's actually not too bad. but let's get the bad out of the way first: the battle graphics are pathetic. the world map graphics, though, are very pretty and stylish, as are the animated races which are all artistically done. the problem lies in tedium.

Not a sequal to Orion II

Amazon
15 October 2003
  • Summary: I think the biggest mistake by the producers was to market this game as a sequal to MOII. It simply isn't and doesn't feel like one. Rather this feel like the first in a second series of more sophisticated space empire games.

A Real Thinker...

Joshua B. Fassett, Amazon
3 July 2003
  • Summary: While this game does not offer any actual eye candy whatsoever, it does offer a bit more for the intellectually inclined. Granted, the A.I. can often be quirky and illogical (declaring war, sending word of improved relations, congradulating you for something that you don't know, etc.

Great Potential, Many Problems

JED, Amazon
24 June 2003
  • Summary: First, I've owned and played MOO1 and MOO2. A lot. They were great,and I still play MOO2 occasionally. MOO3 appears to be a natural evolution of the game, and it has great potential. But... There are plenty of bugs in the game and a pot full of inconsistencies.
