How does it compare to Gal Civ?

Endless Space is more simplified, which means it's more approachable but also lacks depth.

The GWJ guys were saying that they played a 4 person coop vs. 2 AI opponents, and one guy got so decimated by the AI that the other 3 had to spend the rest of the game defending him. Is the AI tweakable at all?

It took me about 3 games to figure out the most efficient build, and after that I have owned the AI pretty regularly. The Gamespy review also says the AI is good, and it is, except when it comes to moving ships and choosing weapons, which you notice after 40 hours. The difficulty setting only increases the economic bonus the AI gets, unfortunately.

Anyone have any impressions on CK II?
My review plus video plus video plus video should give you a good idea.

Great explanation of gameplay. If this game doesn't ship with a tutorial, this would serve well.
Thank you and the game does come with a tutorial: it throws up explanations of each screen as you encounter them the first time through the game.

Do you do a lot of video?
I am doing one video for each game that I review, plus some special bonus previews if I get early copies of games.

I'm actually looking for something a bit simpler. Trying to get into Sins right now, but it's hard with the 20-30m bites of time I have, due to it's learning curve

Tried Endless Space? Here's me playing it for an hour and a half.

You got the original Crusader Kings II?
IIRC he said it was excellent.

It is. And here is the promised video semi-review of Sword of Islam.

Jaguar, any chance of Civ 5: Gods + Kings or Crusader Kings II: Sword of Islam reviews?

No (never got the original anyway) and maybe a video (watch my video channel) but not a full review.

I really appreciate how you down-rate it for people who already own Sins. That really helps me make my decision.
I've recently done that for standalone expansions, as a lot of them are poor value for owners of the original game but better options for newcomers.
Bet wrote on Jun 13, 2012, 15:14:
The engine really does have great graphics, but you have to zoom in to an unplayably-close level to appreciate that. Then you zoom right back out and stop seeing them for the rest of the game.
True

Oh, and I prefer Hello Kitty Island Adventures over Dora the Explorer.

I don't think I've liked any of their expansions, especially for $40.

Err, Raccoon City has been out on PC for weeks. From what I've read, it's a pretty half-assed port of a game that was already half-assed to begin with.

Here's my review

Who plays Free to Play games? I do not pay attention to anything that's free to play. My basic presumption is that they're rubbish titles. Especially the shooters.

Tribes Ascend is not rubbish.
