IMG Reviews Endless Space - Admiral Edition
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Iceberg Interactive's Endless Space - Admiral Edition. The 4X space strategy title gives players the chance to take control of one of eight civilizations struggling for galactic dominion.

Here's an excerpt:

Endless Space also plays quite well. The overall strategy of the game actually requires that you remain relatively peaceful for most of your race's history. If you declare war left and right, you'll miss out on trade routes and other profitable opportunities. In addition, even the smallest of ships can blockade your systems, so starting a war without a proper series of fleet blockades on strategic choke points can end up leading to your bankrupt husk being slowly starved into oblivion. Normal difficulty will kill you if you aren't careful.

This is mainly due to the fact that the computer AI is excellent at managing the galaxy view. It prioritizes the most valuable planets, pushes research towards colonization and fleet speed during peace time, and even modifies and retrofits its ships to be effective against your choice of defensive and offensive weaponry. There are some ways to confuse it and reduce its effectiveness (like having one module of each weapon variety), but overall the AI is excellent at responding to your strategies with its own.
