    Argos Naval Yard represents the definitive culmination of all of the hard work that Kerberos has put into the series up to this point.
  2. Nice addon for a really great game. Add decent diplomacy (with chrome for immersion. Superpowers do not negotiate with SMS-messsages) and Master of Orion is finally beaten.

Who wouldn't want more techs to play with? Of course now-a-days you can get the complete collection for $20 or less, sometimes as little as $5, so probably little need to pick up this expansion separately unless you already have the base game and all of the other expansions but this one.

    In short, SOTS is a turn-based strategy game, with RTS combat. The gameplay is essentially turn-based exploring, researching, and expanding your empire punctuated by epic RTS space battles against aliens, random encounters, and "NPC" menaces. The ships an empire uses are designed by the player, for whatever mission they have in mind.
    The only downside this game might have for some players is that it is more complex than most RTS games. So if you try it, definitely RTFM and refer to the WIKI.

If you don't know what this is, it's essentially Total War: Space Edition. There is almost nothing wrong with this game, and the only thing wrong is that the load times in between turns can start taking a while. Expand
