SummaryA total makeover for a great strategy classic!
The GoodThis game is so addicting that I couldn't stop playing! The learning curve isn't too steep, but a newbie to the series might have a bit of trouble getting the hang of it. The new movies and sounds are a really nice touch. The graphics during combat have also been improved. Indeed if anyone liked Civ3 than this is a super choice for them. Master of Orion 3 lets you choose between tons of different races to start colonizing with. Personally, I think the new menu system is a great feature, and its a thrill to customize your own starship. Colonizing is a sinch, but keeping the colony under control and safe is what you the player must do.
The BadThere's not much a true strategy fan would dislike about this game. The Foreign Affairs system isn't flawless and you might find yourself sending the same offers to the same representatives. The game is still challenging even on easy settings. The combat system has its moments, but overall this game is an excellent addition to any fan!
