In some ways a bit disappointing; too much effort had gone into fight graphics & not enough into the actual planets. It would have been great to have a game that showed the service of them & teraforming changes. Also it was almost impossible not to give battle.
Its nearly a Civ4 in space but not quite - Game designers please take note!!!!!! We don't all want space shoot it up.

The game looks pretty good; you can configure a lot of settings. The main down side is the battle portion, yes you can make ship designs and assemble basic fleets, but here is little depth to the battle phase of the game. When you meet your enemy, you have no control over the ship movements, only very basic tactics which offer little effect on the outcome. The diplomatic element of the game is also lacking and could use some work to make it more fun.

The other slight negative is that this game requires steam to be installed in order to play it. So be prepared for adverts and the usual memory/bandwidth loading steam generates.

Overall this is a pretty good game. It's in the vein of Master of Orion, but that had a better combat system. Still lots of hours of game play exploring, researching and expanding your empire.

brought in the hope of something to play for a long time ( M.O.O) but this is not it.
a card game for kids, nice graphics, but limited play about an hour before its the same thing again.

Easy to get into, then as you get pulled in the better it gets. When you have youe first victory you just want more.

Challenging game, with plenty of interest. A little dificult to grasp but once the principles have been worked out it is good fun.

There seems to be a plethora of these space strategy games on the market right now and not all of them are any good. Gameplay is always the key in any computer game, you can flood it out with beautiful graphics but if you can't work out what you're doing or the control is clumsy or you're just missing the point, it flops. This, regrettably, is one of the flops. There is a much less graphically oriented game, Legends of Pegasus, which seems to occupy the top slot in this game genre, and other game studios could learn from it. Sadly Endless Space is just a clutter of optional view screens, has no central theme or evolution, pretty much just a sandbox mode where you can muck about doing very little beyond getting confused. The elements of the game are very similar to Legends of Pegasus in that you have a turn-based setup, and each turn you select various researches, build various ships, move things around, or queue instructions for future turns. But finding and remembering where everything is takes a very long time because this game suffers severely from over-complication, and, like me, you'll probably peck away at it until boredome and frustration set in, then add it to the enormous pile of games you have that will never, ever be played again.

For fans of Civ games or card based trading games I suppose this game may appeal. I ordered this through Steam during their sale so wasn't a financial loss, however the gameplay was boring and pointless. The graphics looked "ok" but limited. As I said before, if you enjoy Sid Myers(?) Civ games then you may enjoy this, there is a fair bit of planet development etc but it is all done fairly blandly with no obvious impact on the planet or your income.
Combat is boring, no seriously, with animated cut scenes taking place rather than player controlled battles. This is a different take on rts but it doesn't work.

In all honesty I think I've played for 1 hour and 30 minutes, but I just can't find it interesting enough to carry on further than that. Its been deleted from my Steam games grid and now sits idle in the "uninstalled" section.

Good graphics let down by really slow gameplay. I've tried to stick with it, but my life is not that long.

I can't get it to play at all, the manual says that it automatically launches , however having then spent three hours creating a steam account and then downloading (the game I presume- why is it not just on the disc?) everything , nothing happened
Extremely frustrating
