Great with Limtations

ORB is marketed to be a hardcore RTS and that is indeed, arguably. Some of the more hardcore gamers will still object to a gameplay system that could be, whilst still advanced, more complex. That aside the game the game can still boast with quite fantastic graphics all across the board, from the ships to the asteroids to the nebulae clouds, given it's a near decade ORB released. The mechanics of the game, as I mentioned earlier, are great - although I should give a warning for the repetetive nature of it - to those looking for a challenge but it's not The Hardcore Space RTS we've all been looking for. The game is still fun though in places and I can definitely recommend it to any one remotely interested in a rather cheap space or RTS's.

Fairly good

ORB is a fun space RTS game. There are two races which fight against eachother for resources. The thing is - it's kind of boring. The gameplay is repetitive and consists of you just repeating the same stuff. The graphics are okay, but that's it. If you are looking for a cheap and fun space sim, ORB is not a bad choice
