Yeah, the game seems to be pretty good. I haven't played Age of Wonders but I certainly do see a lot of GalCiv2 in this game. Not only can you customize your own side, you can also customize your enemies. You can cuztomize your units, too, along the lines of both GalCiv and Alpha Centauri. Also, as in GalCiv2, the graphics are mighty weak. Ah well, can't have everything.
I guess last week was redemption week in PC Gaming. Not only did this come out to restore Stardock's reputation, so did Sword of the Stars 2's 'all clear'. Throw in XCom and turn based gaming is suddenly all over the place!
