DaFMar 3, 20099I am a big fan of space 4x, and lately I've been waiting for a good game to replace Master of Orion 2... I've been playing MOO2 for too long, it needs to rest. I tried Galactic Civilization, and I liked it for a little while. But not long. As for MOO3, don't get me started. SOTS is a refreshing new title that brings a lot of option and tons of fun features that will keep me playing this game for years to come. A big must for fans of space 4x games.… Expand
PaulT.Aug 3, 20079Great additions to gameplay, interface, and content from the original game. Worth trying for all space 4x and RTS fans.
Nov 5, 201110SOTS 1 is my favorite game. This expansion added the Zuul race which is great fun, they are the embodiment of evil, ship designs very evil-looking, they even have boarding chains :-)
However, you should just get the complete collection which includes the base game and all expansions, you can get it for $20 or less.
