SummaryStrategy players looking for a challenge will love it.
The GoodThis is a challenging strategy game and the challenge was the best part about it for me. At first, the impossible level really did seem impossible. So figuring out how to beat the game using the right combination of planetary resource allocation, research strategy, ship design, diplomacy, and trade was major fun.
Reading game guides and tips beforehand will spoil the challenge. Eventually, you'll figure out many ways to beat the game, but that was also when the game lost its appeal for me.
The BadI like to play a "huge" galaxy, but after taking over 40-50 plants or so, it becomes tedious to micro manage. The program could have been better written so that a human player could more easily handle all the planets at once.
The Bottom LineAwesome player vs computer strategy game.
Good game interface. Passable graphics. Minimal sound effects (but at least it's not annoying). Play this game for the challenge, not for the bells and whistles.
