Master of Orion III Review
Master of Orion III is a disappointing follow-up to the two most significant space empire games ever.
This version of the Master of Orion series was initially a huge disaster. Many of the features did not work properly, others were never activated, and some cornerstones of the macromangement concept were broken. I woul... Read Full Review10 of 12 users found the following review helpful
This game simply doesn't deserves any better note than 1. For what? For killing the best space strategy game series? Master of Orion 2 was (and is still...) one of my most favourite games. This follower is a bad joke, a ... Read Full Review12 of 13 users found the following review helpful
The game intrigues me because it started out with this big and detailed background story. Graphics were not the best around but for me that doesn't matter. The fact that you can do real time battle, fleet against fleet,... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Is it as bad as they say?: I got a very disappointing retail version, mostly cause of high expectations regarding moo2. Very tough to learn due to great complexity and it could use some more automatization specially for... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful

I loved MOO 2 and Bought MOO 3 on faith that they would continue to improve the game. I was wrong the AI had major problems so instead of easing the Micro Manage end of it, it was actually worse because you had to double... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
Based on reviews for this game, I knew that it was crap but for $10, I wanted to know why? There's a very simple explanation: the guys who coded Moo1 and Moo2 had absolutely nothing to do with Moo3. Wikipedia was very... Read Full Review1 of 4 users found the following review helpful
Well, what can I say. It is the worst PC game sequel ever. An analogy to movies would be Caddyshack II. I do not know the buffer on this text window, but I could fill it with point after point about how bad this game ... Read Full Review2 of 4 users found the following review helpful
