    Legends brings you a living breathing galaxy to explore. I has great depth and a very good storyline that will give you many hours ofLegends brings you a living breathing galaxy to explore. I has great depth and a very good storyline that will give you many hours of enjoyment. Beginning from the start you must build ships, research and explore for planets or resources while maintaining a budget. Along the way you face many obstacles including pirates, space creatures and other alien races. Negotiate trade agreements or go to war, the choice is yours. As you expand a story will develop that will give you hints on the troubles you will face. A very good game in my opinion. Expand

    Distant Worlds has ruined me for other space-based 4X-strategy games, which is a genre I love more than any other. I try to go back to GalCivDistant Worlds has ruined me for other space-based 4X-strategy games, which is a genre I love more than any other. I try to go back to GalCiv and MoO once in a while, but nothing matches the scale and minute level of control that Distant Worlds offers. I'll be playing this for years to come. Expand

    Great game, i really love the depth in it. If it had GFX like homeworld it would be a real Legend! 4x Space fan? Don't miss it, you will beGreat game, i really love the depth in it. If it had GFX like homeworld it would be a real Legend! 4x Space fan? Don't miss it, you will be suprised after you get used to the graphical interface and somehow old GFX style. Expand

    If you enjoy conquering space in your own way by building a ridiculous fleet of steel, or letting the AI handle the performance for you (which is does very well) then you should definitely give this game a chance. The game feels natural and unforced, it's a very deep and varied system of politics, science, and expansion. Very fun to play.

    I won't compare this 4X titan to others in the genre but I can say that this game stands on its own very easily. This is one of the very best sci-fi 4x games, even though it's basically unheard of. Give this game a chance you won't regret it!
