This ancient Game is a Strategy Pearl! Is nothing inferior to new Sci-fi strategy games. Who doesn't mind pretty Graphics, but worth a well-balanced, innovative Game, access here!

It's Amazing how much earlier there were interesting and thoughtful games. The Game is over 20 years old, and I have already played it almost 100 hours after the purchase. And It is not only nostalgia, though it is one of the favorite games of childhood. Just gameplay and replay at the highest level, I recommend to all fans of turn-based strategies.

A great Strategy Game. Was one of my Favorites alongside Settler 3. ^^ A bit of a Lot of Difficulty at first, but once you understand it makes it really fun. There are many different Peoples at their disposal, from Man to Sakkra. ;D If you like Strategy in Space, you should risk a Glimpse. If not, you can return it. ;)

It's Definitely a Sh-masterpiece. A Little bit of a fuss with DosBox, but it is a trifle. The Game is able to "stick". Surrendered to me one faction and a legacy, the arrival of the Galactic Bandits gave. Pleases the activity of fans releasing patches (modifications) to it. That's loyalty! If you are not afraid of outdated but pleasant in general graphics, it is worth playing with both AI and live players, because there is a multiplayer.

Product received for free Hearing about the genre of space 4 strategies is the first thing that comes to mind Master of Orion II. This is the perfect game of its genre, perfect balance, perfect turn-based mechanics, perfect gaming atmosphere. The Game creates unreal sensations, depths and mysterity of space, ruthiness of war, contact with other civilizations... Now through time, despite the old graphics, which is even difficult to name in this case a disadvantage, Orion is perceived as a classic fiction, the old graphics betray even more atmospheric. This is a great example for modern developers, indicating that the graphics in the games are not important, ideas, mechanics, depth in detail, that's what matters... Tired of excessive variety of casual games, yes they with chic graphics, BUT, reveal all their despondency for the first half of the hour of the game. The Second Orion got for free, in the load to the new bought yet in early access, and it was a good incentive to buy, regardless of the success of the project in early access, I am guaranteed to get masterpiece 4x! A Game from childhood, which even after 30 manages to occasionally kidnap a couple of days of my life:)
