Quick question - the review mentioned this is a "4-X strategy game". I've heard that term used before and would like to keep up with the times. What does 4-X mean?

4x is a subgenre of RTS and TBS (Real-time Strategy and Turn-based strategy). The 4 x's are eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate. All 4x's are empire builders.
