    Lords of the Black Sun is an epic, complex, dense, turn-based 4X PC strategy game, set in deep space.

    Take command of one race to join the struggle for supremacy in the galaxy. As the leader of your empire you are tasked with exploring the stars, colonizing new worlds, managing your empire and conquering whoever dares to oppose you.

    The galaxy is full of secrets and dangers: Discover ancient ruins and artifacts, repel or befriend pirates, promote a general to guide your fleets to victory. Concoct complex plots with your allies or use your intelligence services to uncover weak spots on that threatening empire whose leader has vowed to destroy you.

    Make sure to keep your population happy or be prepared to face protests against your rule, or in a worst case scenario, rebel factions within your empire. Only the mightiest rulers can prevail in the depths of space. Are you up to the task of becoming a Lord of the Black Sun?

    A pretty enjoyable empire management and strategy game, but brought down by an underwhelming combat system.

    There is no point in spending time and money on Lords of the Black Sun. It’s not that bad, but there are much better alternatives available now.

    From diplomacy to war, there are far better games to occupy your time in this genre even if some are getting on in age.

    I love 4x turn based strategies. But this one is simply bad.

    There are very few things that one could compliment the game for. Probably the most interesting is concept of political speeches, and empire polices; such as slavery, child labor, social benefits etc. Every other aspect of the game (colony management, research, combat, general user interface friendliness etc…) is completely lacking. The game play as a whole is to micromanagement demanding, and quite frankly simply boring.

    Its not very good, there are some parts which are interesting like 'threatening' during dipolmacy, or empire wide industry, but on the wholeIts not very good, there are some parts which are interesting like 'threatening' during dipolmacy, or empire wide industry, but on the whole everything is subpar, and the game is in alpha-quality despite being released. I even like these type of games. Expand
