next to age of wonders 3 this looks rather meh but obviously looks isnt everything so i m willing to give it a chance in case (please no no no no ) age of wonders 3 ends up disappointing ( noooooooooooo! ).
never tried endless space - the impression i got what that mainstream reviewers liked it because its pretty and hardcore 4x fans said its a shallow game devoid of depth and longterm replay value. since i want depth and longterm replay value i skipped it hoping for it to get good BIG expansions (like Elemental did) to fix the game but from all i ve read the last expansion was pretty minor and the game is still far from greatness. does anyone know whether they planned more expansions for endless space or is their focus now all on this ?
My personal feeling ist that Endless Space is THE game release 2012. It has been a long time that i have been that (positivly (sp?)) surprised by a game. I played that thing 6 months straight and that is a lot for me. I suffer from some kind of gamer add, sometimes playing even great games just once or twice and rarely finish one.
The last expansion might be a minor one in some ones opinion, but i dont think so. Also they did release 3 or 4 expansion inbetween ... for free.
I paid €20 for the game and in my opinion you cant get a better game for that money.
