2.0 out of 5 stars elegant graphics but jumbled screens and steep learning curve, 29 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Endless Space (PC DVD/Mac) (DVD-ROM)
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.
