Old, but a refined 4X pearl

This is an old pearl. It's got a steep learning curve, but once you see the different options and get used to the micromanagement it's great fun! To enjoy this game you need time and dedication, but the reward is sweet. This game is by far best played with mods, lots of them. The choices are many, everything from custom races to additional options. Of course you have to get use dto some dated graphics, but in these types of games that is rarely the main focus. Be prepared to lose your initial games even on normal, it's all in the process of learning!

Space Empires IV deluxe, is awesome! A really challenging game, Space Empires is really hard for players new to the genre, but after a couple of hours you can easily get the hang of it. After getting the hang of the game it's almost impossible to stop paying it. The part I love about Space Empires is the mods, there is a large community making mods, and if you like to make mods yourself, you're in luck, the game comes with modding tools. This is an awesome game, but I wouldn't recommend it to players who don't like spending too much time just getting hang of the game, as I said this game takes time to get used to, this isn't one of those modern shooters. Conclusion: I highly recommend this game, this is a real "Gamers game".
