Studios they consider "the spiritual successor to Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri"
(as opposed to the spiritual successor to James Cameron's 3D extravaganza).
Being hailed as the spiritual successor to Sid Meier's Alpha
Centauri, Pandora: First Contact creates a completely new world of its own, with
alien flora and fauna, massive armies, wondrous technologies, advanced weapons
and much more, all rendered in a stunning 3D.
Explore a rich world harboring a variety of eco-regions, from the frozen wastes
of the poles, to the vast deserts and lush tropical forests at the equator. Live
in harmony with nature or use it to further your cause. Construct farms, mines,
forts, and other improvements to increase the productivity of your colonies or
to fortify positions…and this is just the beginning!
Pandora allows you to customize your experience through easily moddable XML data
and well-known image and audio formats, adding enormous replay value. And let’s
not forget the game allows up to 6 players to play head to head, co-op or in
teams to decide the fate of Pandora.
