    Galactic Civilizations is a breath of fresh air in the gaming world. The graphics are semi-legacy, completely entrancing, and the interface is logically laid out and easy to learn. Do****entation coul...

    First let me say I am glad another game did come out after that horrible MOO3. But if you are a fan of MOO2 or Space Empires, this game may not be for you. This is more like civilization is space. ...

    When I bought this game, I thought that this would be the space simulator/turn based strategy game I had been missing for a while. So I read the decent game instructions, and quickly became interested...
