What Gamespot Users have to say about Endless Space

  • User Rating 8.5

    Endless Space is a great 4x game that pushes itself firmly into the genre, but it's not the king... yet.

    Rated on July 05, 2012 by Merku

    The good: - the value of the game ($30.00) - smooth gameplay, even for larger galaxies - excellent UI - create-a-faction included - entertaining base factions, lore, and designs - well done he...

    Absolutely beautiful but is just lacking

    Rated on July 07, 2012 by Torino818

    This game looks amazing, the graphics are beautiful even on low settings, the combat plays out like a movie, and the planets are pristine. However once you actually get into playing the game its quit...

    not much to add to the fallowing, the game starts like most gives you small amounts, makes the player think he is dum for even getting to the planet that he or she has, makes you continue to look for ...

    Beautiful graphics and interface make this game very easy on the eyes, but the gameplay comes up short.

    Rated on July 09, 2012 by CUmilkman25

    I've had trouble getting into 4x games before due to numerous reasons, but this game did a much better job at pulling me in. It was probably down to the graphics. The UI and art is done perfectly in...

    Rudimentary and simplistic gameplay. Suited for beginners of the 4X TBS genre. Disappointing.

    Rudimentary and very simplistic gameplay. Everything here has been done before, and actually this is taking step back to simplicity equivalent to sid's civilization. This is all well and good for casu...

    Essentially strong strategic, but poor tactical gameplay. Shares too many features/issues of older games in the genre.

    4X is my fave type of game but in my opinion the complexity has been diminishing since Galactic Civilizations, which this game certainly emulates. The ship combat is only slightly better than GC. It's...

    A game that takes civilization into space... but drops a few things behind.

    Rated on July 15, 2012 by Dawn_oF_Doom

    So, this is a turn based strategy game that takes place into outer space. More precisely, a galaxy. Preliminary notions: planets -> they come in different sizes and of different types. You can imagi...

    Lots of options with no point

    Rated on July 15, 2012 by Foxbat44

    So, there is a lot to do in Endless Space. The title is fitting in that way and in one other. There is no game here just a void where something fun should go. The space ships aren't that detailed ...

    Endless Space has the basics down, but more depth is needed...

    Rated on July 18, 2012 by Alee55

    Endless Space is a great game. It has gotten the basics of management and diplomacy down, the graphics are pleasing, and the soundtrack gets you in the mood for some galactic exploration... but I just...

    Endless Space: it could become a classic!

    Rated on July 19, 2012 by SpaceAngel1

    I think Endless Space is a great 4X strategy game! Highly addictive: It's been a while since I have been sucked into such a game, playing one more turn at 3am... You can't really compare this game wi...
