4 out of 5 eggsamazing strategy game

Pros: This game does not look as amazing as it is. The graphics do not do it justice.
It is one of the best turn-based strategy games I have played, or the best. I am a huge fan of Heroes (3&5), and Civ (3,4,5), but I think this one beats them, but it is a hard decision.
The depth of the game is just intense. There is so much to do, a galactic empire can be spread so far out, and you can micro to the finest details. Nothing is quite as satisfying as conquering 7 other races.
The AI is some of the best I've seen in turn based games. They react very well, and can be impossible to defeat. There are many varying levels of difficulty.
You can design your ships to very tiny details, including visuals, in game. What you research changes what you can put on them.

Cons: Main one: This product does not include its 2 expansions that are essential.

Plenty more, though I think the pros far outweigh them:
1) Games take forever, as with any good turn based strategy game
2) The amount of detail can be overwhelming. It's great that you can edit your ships down to the square inch, but sometimes it's a good thing that you aren't allowed to do this.
3) The races seem very similar, though they have taken efforts to reduce this with expansions. (not included!)
4) Graphics are not up to date.
5) World battles are too automated for my tastes, though it may be way too in depth to allow full scale wars. (one reason i really enjoy heroes 5)
6) not a mainstream game. try finding a friend that will play a full game with you. you will just end up convincing them to buy a game that they will never learn and ever enjoy. better to play the AI :(

Other Thoughts: it's only worth it to really play if you have the expansions, but maybe you will save some money by buying this first, and possibly not enjoying it or wanting more.

if you do enjoy it, definitely get the 2 expansions...

this game can be modded heavily as well. but don't expect any big projects. this game does not have a large user base.

5 out of 5 eggsGOTY material, if turn-based games were allowed to be considered.

Pros: Where to start? Best AI in the business. You will think the enemies are all plotting against you using human-like tactics. Graphics outstanding, especially for a turn-based game. The 3d space environment really encompasses you in the feeling you are controlling a galactic empire. Moddability. People are hard at work creating a star wars and star trek total conversion. There is no limit to what the engine can display with user created models, and the AI players will use any modded new techs and weapons. Best of all? The company comes out with a feature-rich and bug squashing patch at least twice a month. I have never known any game company to be this dedicated to their product.

Cons: None. Except maybe you have got to enjoy slower-paced turn-based game. The learning curve is pretty steep as well. Besides that, perfection.

Other Thoughts: GET IT NOW.
