Summary: It start out as a pretty interesting game (like all games.) It introduces an interesting play mechanics by actually real time travel between planets and the ability to place what you build in orbit the way you want to. However, the intro storyline practically screams continuation with a campaign mode or something, but i haven't found it if there is one.
Summary: I really wanted to like this game. I love real time strategy's, like command and conquer. But, wanting to love a game is not the same as actually loving the game. This game was very creative and original, but I found it very hard and tedious. I'm a RTS armchair general, but this game was a whole lot of micro-managing. It was not very fun, and the learning curve was very steep. Also there is no story mode, just a skirmish/scenario mode.
Summary: first off, part of the reason for my rating is because i cannot play this game online against anyone..if you have highspeed internet and can do so it probably adds alot more fun to it.. the game is still very fun playing against the computer though..the scale of the game universe is awsome! u pick one of the bigger maps to play on and youll have months of good gameplay. and the graphics are great too!
Summary: This is a good space game to play if it's just you and the computer. If you want to LAN with other people it has alot of "Mini Dump" issues. There are no fixes for the "Mini Dumps", and the company doesn't really want to fix it! A "Mini Dump" is a game crash! The game stops and shuts down...
Summary: I really liked a lot of the game play and how they re-worked the genre concept in the effort to change your traditional RTS. I do however, greatly dislike the lack of any campaign or story development. There is only the cursory glimpse at the reason why these three groups are fighting, but a little lip service is all the back story is given.
Summary: I actualy thought this game was going to be good. I read many reviews, both on this site and on IGN, and all were generally, if not completely favorable. But unfoutunately this game is one of the worst I have played this year. It's a shame because I love RTS games like Civilization, Total war, and even Command and Conquor, but this game is nothing like them. For one, I was lead to believe that the graphics where somewhat good. This is completly false.
Summary: I'm a big technology fan, so this game was a little disappointing. I would much rather go back and play Master of Orion II or Alpha Centauari. The dynamics of the game are better, but I enjoy a different type of play.
Summary: The good stuff: The graphics are appropriately vast; the scope of gameplay is enormous, without becoming unwieldy; and real-time space strategy is something I've never seen before but turns out to be a cool idea. Now for the bad stuff: After getting a good grip on the game, and you get ready to roll up your sleeves and REALLY start enjoying it, you suddenly realise that there is nothing left to enjoy.
