Space Empires V does a lot right. There's a decent amount of depth, it looks nice considering its retro style, and it plays well. The problem is that that's all it is. It's a solid, standard, run of the mill 4x game. It doesn't do much wrong, but it doesn't do anything overly impressive either. It's a good deal compared to some newer 4x games out there being a lot more expenasive, but it's nothing too impressive or immersing.
