Hardly ever played this genre before. but absolutely love this game. there is no consolidation issues, its pure pc, the slower pace of the game can give that little extra time to come up with the right choice, on the other hand, fleet movement is also a little slow, but thats where good planning and anticipation comes in.
basics was quick to grasp, its not complex in that regard, tactics on the other hand is a different issue, but thats why this game rocks so hard in my opinion.
it includes map editors and what not. ,(a better more advanced one can be dl'ed from the game site) and the game is realy modable, and there is lots of mods around from minor effects tweaks to total star wars\trek makeovers.
oh and no drm
The smaller skirmish maps can be dealt with in an hour or two, but the larger maps can sometimes take days to dominate.
and this game should come with a 'time flies' warning label. This comment was edited on Oct 8, 2009, 03:50.
Yes, I abuse grammar by opening my mouth.
