  1. Simply put, this has been one of the harder reviews I’ve had to put together merely because it means I’ll have to stop playing to write it!...Truly, if you only buy one RTS this year, be sure to make it Conquest!
  2. 88
    A highly impressive game, that, while taking the genre to several new levels, still retains the essentials that made playing these games so enjoyable in the first place.
  3. It is a masterful piece of RTS gaming that will entrench those who dare to delve into it deep into the thrills of deep space combat. At first it is a little overwhelming with the ability to jump from one map to another. It is enough to lose a lot of players. But for the hardcore RTS fan this game will be a true gem.
  4. They have managed to bring some excellent Fleet-Based combat to a genre where games like Star Trek: Armada II have failed.
  5. A remarkably fresh look at traditional real-time strategy gaming.
  6. The wormhole/supply line/multiple fronts idea is a great one, and I’d love to see it taken further.
  7. Yet another stellar sci-fi game. But this time around, the game play requires cunning strategy and tactics rather than a quick trigger finger.
  8. Despite some weakness rooted to the genre, Conquest's solid graphics, gameplay, and AI make it a title with enough reasons for RTS fans to join the fight.
  9. Unnoticeable at first, a number of subtleties emerge over extended play that should surprise and delight those bored with this dozing genre.
  10. Mixing a mostly tried-and-true formula with some interesting new ideas, Conquest succeeds as a competent new entry in the genre.
  11. [It] would have been much more innovative if it hadn't been kept locked in the attic until "Starcraft" and "Homeworld" had already come out in various iterations.
  12. 70
    A truly mediocre strategy game with a lackluster campaign.
  13. It's a respectable johnny-come-lately, rough edges tempered by its newness and straight-arrow Leave It To Beaver charm. It's beach reading, basically.

    A hidden gem among RTS games. Supplies, supply lines, fleet admirals, and multiple maps at the same time a thoroughly enjoyable experience. A game that was overlooked in it's day and worth picking up in today's modern PC world. Good fun. Full Review »

    Excellent balance, absorbing gameplay, innovative supply rules and adequate graphics to engage the player.

    A thoroughly fun and addictive game, although I do wish they included a campaign for each race.
