    This game is refreshing after my great disappointment with MOO3. The feel, design, look...everything brings out what I was looking for. FUN. Moo3 lost it. The reason why I'm comparing this game constantly to moo3 is ... Read Full Review

    Enjoyable... but... why play this when you could be playing Zelda? I mean realy, would you rather be playing a mediocer stradegy game or Zelda? Go by a game cube and get Zelda. You owe it to your self. There are some gr... Read Full Review

    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 could use some improveme... Read Full Review

    I will keep this short.... get this game. It is a great game if your into turn based strategy games or if your new to the genera and have always wanted to try one out. The game has a small bit of a learning curve but not... Read Full Review

    Earlier I reviewed MoO III, a game I really wanted to like, but could not because of the troublesome gameplay. GalCiv has excellent gameplay. One has to realize tho that it is purely a strategy game, there is no tactic... Read Full Review

    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 in trying it out. I... Read Full Review
