A bit of a learning curve, but what 4X game doesn't have them? It's not MOO2 but it's the next best thing, and I have a feeling they may just get it right with SOTS 2. I love the way they differentiate the races, it's their best idea, and I hope they expand on it. Make sure you try every race! Full Review »

    SOTS, together with the two expansion packs, turned out to be a fantastic 4X game.

    While the original SOTS felt a bit incomplete, the massive improvements included in the collection turned it into this reviewers favorite 4X.

    Make no mistake, this is not an easy game to master - there are a LOT of tricks to playing it - but it offers more diversity in tactics and strategy than any other. The sheer options one has and the number of strategies and counter-strategies is intimidating.

    It is clear that a lot of love and care was put into this product and it shows. While it still has a few kinks and flaws (like some blurry textures, engine that is not fully optimized), the things it does offer (re-playability, truly unique races and play-styles, customization, etc..) do make them trivial in comparison.

    A definite must buy for any 4X fan.

Falling in the same category as noteable classics such as Master of Orion 2, you simply can't do better as far as originality and pure story telling goes! Full Review »
