  1. If the single-player portion only holds your attention for a while, the multiplayer part has enough to offer to make you want to come back from time to time. It's a great way to kill a few minutes, but you will probably not play it for hours on end.
  2. It’s simplistic, it’s fun, and it’s hectic to a degree that’ll alienate anybody who’s mind isn’t at least vaguely superhuman at some subconscious level – but if you’re willing to push yourself to the limit, to click and think faster than you’ve ever thunk before, then you’ll find a surprisingly deep and intense passtime.
  3. If you can handle the game's intensity enough to stick with it for prolonged play sessions -- or if, conversely, you're perfectly fine with sporadically playing it for a few minutes at a time before switching it off -- then maybe Galcon Fusion is for you. If not, maybe you're better off picking it up for the iPhone.
  4. Imagine war of a galactic scale in a casual strategy, lots of game modes, even the online – and all this stretched into boring statistics. Lots of potential, zero fun. [Issue#189]
  5. Tense, if limited fun. [Apr 2010, p.107]
  6. Looks rather simple, but is in fact very deep. [Apr 2010, p.101]
  7. It’s overly simple and lacks the diversity for extended play.
  8. The multiplayer side is where it pushes the score into Recommended territory. But the single player mode won't hold your attention for more than a few rounds. [May 2010, p.91]

    DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. The single player mode is dull and repetitive, making multiplayer basically the only reason to own it. Sadly, multiplayer has many problems: The games are essentially decided by a popularity contest. If you are not well liked, you will be eliminated almost immediately. This wouldn't be so much a problem, except the average game can easily stretch on for over an hour, with long periods of absolutely nothing happening. And THAT wouldn't be such a problem, except usually there's only one or two rooms you can join to play in, so you HAVE to wait for them to finish. Combine all this with obnoxious and immature volunteer administration that will mute, kick or ban you without any real reason, and you have a completely toxic gaming environment. I wouldn't even recommend this game to somebody just to spite them. Don't give 'em your money. Full Review »
