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.

I had the same problem on normal mode. After about 120 turns, I'm feeling all badass with my 900 strength ships (forget what they call it) and killing pirates. Suddenly the AI decides to attack me with its ships in the 3000 range.

I plan on restarting at the easier difficulty, but I've heard that doesn't make much difference. I just have to not suck. As of the moment, I am enjoying Sins: Rebellion more.

How does it compare to Gal Civ?

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

Yeah I played it a while and I came away thinking I should reinstall Galciv and play the real deal.

Oh, yeah, I meant to ask that: How does it compare to Gal Civ? It sounds similar, as I remember you had even less control over combat in that game (Haven't played it in a few years tho).

In my mind, it doesnt come close.

I think its a 6/8 personally going by the out of eight rankings. Game is good, but it seems so shallow, i think galciv2 ruined me for all other 4x's

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.

Thanks Jag, nice review. Interesting that you found the AI lacking. 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? Say one setting for aggressiveness, and another for economy?

Regardless, nice review and I'll be picking this up soon.
