Summary: It's almost bug free now. I played for days and only found two bugs. I couldn't load battleriders onto their carriers sometimes, and the problem that needs to be fixed is the gradual slowing of all parts of the game except tactical combat. By turn 416, loading the research screen takes forever, turn processing takes forever, and so does most other things. If Paradox Interactive would fix these bugs, this would be the game players of the first game expect this one to be.
Summary: I really wanted to like this game, but just can't. It is too buggy and crash-prone to be anywhere near enjoyable. Windows has the much-feared BSOD when it crashes, and this game has a nifty WSOD when the graphics lock (and, yes, all my NVIDIA drivers are up-to-date). Which happens A LOT. If I want to look at the planet summary screen? *WSOD* If I click on a gas giant from the current system map? *WSOD* If I'm finally in a groove w/ no issues for more than 15 minutes?
Summary: Excellent strategy game, as a fan of pure real time strategy games, I can say I was somewhat ambivalent. The turn based aspect of the game however was executed extremely well and only handles ship building and the setup of colonies etc. All combat is real time, with a time limit to allow running battles to go on across multiple strategic turns.
Summary: MUCH BETTER THAN ORIGINAL VERSION. AI IS UNREAL WITH NO LIMITATIONS. TECH TREE ALLOWS MORE CUSTOMIZED SHIP DESIGNS PLUS RACE SPECIFIC TECHS. THIS IS 100% INPROVEMENT. I HAVE TO FIGHT TOOTH AND NAIL FOR EVERYTHING.
Summary: I am very pleased with the product and the prompt shipping of the product. However, be warned, this game is ADDICTIVE!!! I have had a couple of late night game sessions with it. There's lots to learn. It's easy to get the basics, but it's tough to master. A thoroughly enjoyable game - one of the best uses I've ever made of a very small amount of money!!!
Summary: This DLC is a huge step up in sophistication from vanilla The Pit. It usually is cheaper to buy with Gold, which really boosts the character selection and enemy variety. But Mind Games is where The Pit really started to mature and shape up. Mind Games deepens the game mostly by adding psionic skills, a sort of casting mechanic using "Psi points" and a point of food (the utility of a This DLC is a huge step up in sophistication from vanilla The Pit.
