A space strategy game that streamlines empire-building better than any other. Combat and AI could be...

4X games aren't my speed. Not by a long shot. Don't get me wrong; I love attempting to play in-depth strategy games, especially if they're turn-based, but it's just that: an attempt. I've never been comfortable thinking on that large...

The greatest stories are the ones you make in your mind. It’s one of the key reasons why I personally believe the strategy genre gets away with being relatively unchanging over the years. Look beyond Endless Space’s rich (and wonderfully...

I'm not a bad man. Sure, I might rule over billions of miserable souls with an iron fist. I confess that my greatest dream is to conquer and enslave the entire galaxy. I admit that when asked who my greatest heroes are, I list the most bloodthirsty,...

Endless Space is a terrific turn-based space 4X game, about as elegant and refined as anyone could wish for. But it also shows so little personality or character that it verges on becoming an abstract exercise in genre game design. When I was actually...

Well, there goes my productivity. Other games? Couldn't care less. My girlfriend? Thankfully, she digs the game soundtrack, so that's a plus. My Cat? Crap – really should feed my cat. But one more turn... To say that Endless Space is...

International Review By Eurogamer on 70

Rummet. Den yderste grænse. Jeg husker intet i min barndom, som gjorde større indtryk på mig end Star Trek: Next Generation. Jeg identificerede mig kraftigt med Wesley Crusher, seriens vel nok mindst populære figur, spillet af den...

International Review By Evilgamerz on 79

Het was Surak van de planeet Vulcan die kwam met het gezegde “oneindige diversiteit in oneindige combinaties”. Er is één genre in de gamewereld dat het hier voornamelijk van moet hebben en dat zijn de 4X spellen (staat voor explore,...

von Stephan Petersen Während des Tests erinnerte mich Endless Space zunehmend mehr an Sid Meier’s Civilization V. Die Funktionsweise von Forschung, Produktion, Nahrung und Währung ist nicht nur ähnlich, sondern klappt ganz genauso...

International Review By GameCaptain on 84

Zu Endless Space kommen mir gleich mehrere positive Dinge in den Sinn, wie die tolle Bedienung, die atmosphärische Oberfläche, die schön animierten Planeten, die Helden und die vielen erforschbaren Technologien. Negativ stoßen nur...

International Review By Gamer.no on 80

Endless Space er et skikkelig vanedannende strategispill. Det er alltid noe nytt å ta stilling til, et nytt prosjekt som må ferdigstilles og en ny fiende som må bankes. Hver tur byr på massevis av spennende valg, med potensielt...

Horatio, imperiumin rikkain mies, lähti vuosikymmeniä sitten tuntemattomalle planeetalle avaruuden ääriin. Sieltä löytyneen muinaisen teknologian avulla hän täytti planeetan omilla klooneillaan. Nyt hän...

"Games2Gether" heißt das Konzept, das "Endless Space" zugrunde liegt. Und die Idee dahinter ist denkbar einfach: Vorbesteller bekamen Zugang zu frühen Versionen des Titels und konnten sich durch konstruktives Feedback aktiv an Entwicklung...

International Review By Netzwelt on -

Für Weltraumstrategen ist die Zeit im Jahr 1996 stehen geblieben. Damals erschien "Master of Orion 2" - so etwas wie der Fixstern unter den rundenbasierten All-Macht-Spielchen. Seitdem konnte kein weiterer Genre-Vertreter Komplexität und...
