Easy to learn, difficult to master

I've put 16 hours into Endless Space, and it is a great game by most accounts. However, it does lack some in the fact that the fleets of ships have no real fighting animations, with munitions just appearing out of their flat sides, as well as the AI doing naught but continuously declaring war. "Why did this tiny 'empire' just declare war against the largest civ in the galaxy? Population density you say? Well alright then!". Overall though, Endless Space is a great 4X and is one that I plan to pump many more hours into.

More than just a sci-fi Civ

Civ 5 in space is the simplest way to describe Endless Space - and even if it was just that, it would still be awesome. If one is to play it, however, they'll realise that Endless Space is a unique 4X unto itself. Pick from a list of unique alien races with amazing artwork and distinctive art styles and then expand your empire accross the stars. Engage with AI or real player civilizations for diplomatic or military dominance or isolate yourself with galactic barricades. There are plenty of different strategies and tactics which makes every game completely unique. A must play for fans of 4X or Science fiction.

Take me to your leader

I've waited for a long time for a modern 4x game set in space. A lot of people complained about the simple graphical interface and while i do agree it's simple in that regard(though the space battles do look great) that's not what's important in a turn based strategy game. The UI is brilliant and it's easy to keep track of a large interstellar empire and with 10 races( 11 with the new DLC) it will give you weeks of fun. Plus the game is actively supported with new stuff such as races or other perks in games added as free DLC. A game worth buying and supporting.

Very great idea, fun game

This game is very similar to turn-based strategy games like Civilization (except in space, which is better) and real-time strategy games like sins of a solar empire. It is one of those games that is inbetween, like Total War for those of you familiar with the series. But, as total war is primarily an rts game, Endless Space is primarily a turn-based game. The quick real-time space battles are very simple instruments added for elegance. Now, many people accuse the ai of cheating, and it does seem so sometimes, but other times not so much. If you feel the ai is cheating, all you have to do is change up your tactics a little bit and be more random. Out-playing the ai will lead you towards victory even when the ai does cheat. In the real time battles, countering what your enemy does gives you a bonus, but does not neutralize what they do. The ai often has inferior ship designs so when you design your own, you will definitely notice the difference and realize that once you become good at the game, the ai will have to cheat to have any chance of success or even mere survival. If you are new to the civilization-like turn based strategy genre, then do not play this game, do not buy it. If you are a veteran or casual gamer that really found enjoyment in the civilization franchise then defintely buy this game, play it, and love it. It is a great change of pace and you will find yourself immersed in the game play.

This year's coolest strategic surprise

Endless Space is a great return to the golden era of 4X strategy, carried out in a very modern way. If you dreamed that someone sat down, pulled himself together and created a new version of the iconic Master of Orion, the no frills, no innovation in power, playable like that one, only better ... it looks Endless Space is the fulfillment of these dreams. At the beginning at least, because then, after several hours of play, the more clearly seen that, however, is more than just a little differently, entitled "remake" the classics. This is a new standard for the genre, the pattern of Sevres for games of exploration, expansion, exploitation and extermination.
