Summary: The whole package is hours and hours and hours of fun. The pros are: the entire game (including the add-on packs) are a rush from the start. You really have to be careful on what you do and invest into the technologies. The con is: If you're not careful, the computer will kick you're butt every time and that can be a real bummer. Since you've been playing for hours on end steadily building your empire and technology.
Summary: product met expectations was shipped promptly and I am enjoying my expiriance with it. if you have a low bandwidth internet connection updates can be quite difficult but overall enjoyable gameplay

Summary: I've notified Amazon multiple times but the prices don't change on the site -- so just so you know, you can download this game for $20 direct from Stardock. If you want a boxed copy, they charge $30. Amazon is way off on the current $40 price tag.
