Anyone else buy/try this yet. I rushed out and bought it first thing when it came out.... and honestly I can't give an opinion yet. TONS of micromanagment, and MOO2 it ain't, but I really haven't had the time this semester to give this baby some real love. I remeber some other Weiners (Excalibur for one) talking about it coming out, and wondering what you guys think. This is probably the ONLY game I own that I can't immediately describe. With the 5 or so hours I've put it, it looks promising, but some friends tell me I can spare lots of headaches by just trading it back in for Def Jam Vendetta.

It takes a LONG time to get acclimated to, too long for alot of people. You have to play it for a long time before you get all the ins and outs.
First mistake you can make is thinking that this is Master of Orion 2 2. It's not. It's a different game, a fun game, but a different game.
It's kind of irritating too that your planets don't always listen to what you want.
I'd elaborate more, but I don't really have time right now. It's fun, but for Space Strat fans only. If you're REALLY on the fence, give GalCiv a chance. It's not as good, in my opinion, but it's a bit more fan friendly.
Do you have any specific questions? It might go a bit more easily.

Sorry I am late in responding to this, but I was in the store today looking at this and then read this thread. So, James, what makes this worth my $20? Why should I part with my money for this arcade game? Convince me!
