Space Empires V Review
Space Empires V is a space strategy game with plenty of depth and complexity, but it's so riddled with bugs and issues that it is ultimately tough to recommend.
Space is not for wimps, and neither is Space Empires V. The game has a lot to it, but the game is pretty complex and the learning curve is steep. You can see the newbs walking out of the airlocks right from the game’s tu... Read Full Review5 of 5 users found the following review helpful
This is quite a comprehensive 4x game, everything an empire builder needs is there from very different planets to colonise, to an extremely rich research tree, through the possibility of building an incredible variety of... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful

If your looking for eye candy here you won't get it. This game is all about game play and depth. While the learning curve for the game is a bit stiff at first, you get the feel for the menu's along with the in's and ou... Read Full Review4 of 6 users found the following review helpful
A few hours into my first game of Space Empires V, I uninstalled my copy of Galactic Civilizations II from my harddrive and threw it away. There really was no reason to keep it. I wouldn't play it again anyway and Stardo... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
