Über das Spiel

Endless Space 2 will put you in the fascinating role of a leader guiding a civilization in making its first steps into the cold depths of interstellar space.

You will explore mysterious star systems, discover the secrets of ancient races, develop advanced technologies of unthinkable power, and, of course, encounter new life forms to understand, to court or to conquer.

Your story unfolds in a galaxy that was first colonized by a people known as the Endless, who rose and fell eons ago. All that remains of them are mystical ruins, powerful artifacts, and a mysterious, near-magical substance known as Dust.

EXPLORE the Endless universe
The new Galaxy Generator has been completely overhauled to provide unique star systems and curiosities to explore, different planet types to colonize, luxuries and strategic resources to exploit, the mysteries of the Dust and new lifeforms to master, and a host of strange cosmic anomalies to deal with.

EXPAND beyond the unknown
Claim new systems by establishing outposts, and develop your planets into feared stellar fortresses or fabulous utopias full of wonders. Train your heroes to become fleet admirals, system governors or influential senators to guide your populations and make your galactic civilization thrive.

EXPLOIT every opportunity
Collect Dust, luxuries and strategic resources that are tradable on the marketplace*, discover amazing new technologies, and keep one step ahead of the competition through trade corporations and subtle diplomacy.

EXTERMINATE all resistance
Design your ships, build your fleets and carefully choose your battle plans to overcome up to seven opponents in online confrontations*. Watch epic real-time space battles unfold, and improve your strategy for your next confrontations.
Disclaimer: multiplayer will be released during Early Access.

EXPERIENCE a galactic saga
Discover each civilization’s story, from the Sophon’s AI gone berserk to the traditional Lumeris families facing an ambitious young upstart. Learn more about the origins of the lethal Endless creation called the Cravers. Find out more about the Heretic, a mysterious and powerful character hunted by the Vodyani… The galaxy will belong to the civilization that controls Dust and uncovers its secrets… but were the Endless alone in the galaxy? What is the true origin of Dust? Are the rumors around a mysterious organization called the Academy real?

Endless Space 2 (v1.5.11)

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1968492715

POSITIVES

+ optisch sehr ansprechend und nicht so kitschig wie andere aktuelle 4X-Spiele
+ für jede Rasse ein eigenes Intro
+ anpassbare Kartenparameter wie Galaxieform, Galaxiedichte, Anzahl der Sternensysteme und der Fraktionen, Spielgeschwindigkeit, usw.
+ 9 unterschiedliche Rassen im Grundspiel: die wissenschaftlichen und leichtsinnigen Sophon, die insektenartigen und ständig Krieg führenden Graver, die Lumaris-Händler, die religiösen Eiferer der Vodyani, das industriell starke Vereinigte Imperium, die manipulativen Horatio, die zeitbeherrschenden Rissgeborenen und die pazifistischen Ungefallen-Gewächse, die sich auch alle inhaltlich sehr unterschiedlich spielen
+ optisch unterschiedliche und detaillierte Schiffsrümpfe je nach Fraktion
+ deutsche Texte
+ hilfreicher Tutorial-Ratgeber und Tooltipps
+ elegantes UI, mit dem man in verschiedene Ansichtsebenen herein- oder herauszoomen kann wie man möchte
+ übersichtliche Galaxie und Sternensysteme
+ viele unterschiedliche Planetentypen
+ kleine Zwischensequenzen bei der Kolonisation oder Zerstörung eines neuen Planeten
+ Anomalien die man durch Expeditionen erkunden kann
+ Strategische Ressourcen und Luxusressourcen bilden ein leicht verständlichen Ressourcensystem
+ Reihenfolge der Produktionen kann einfach verschoben werden, auch wenn diese bereits begonnen wurden
+ Systeme, Planeten und Flotten können umbenannt werden
+ eigene Schiffsausstattungen (das Design selbst kann man aber nicht ändern)
+ Waffen werden unterschieden in starke Kinetischen Geschütze für kurze Reichweiten, Laserwaffen für mittlere Reichweiten, Raketenwerfer für lange Reichweiten und schwächere Strahlenwaffen für alle Reichweiten
+ weitere Unterscheidung in Turmwaffen und Breitseitenwaffen
+ Helden deren Fähigkeiten sich je nach Rasse, Beruf und allgemeinen Fähigkeiten unterscheiden und die im Laufe der Zeit Erfahrungsstufen aufsteigen, bei denen man dann Fähigkeitspunkte vergeben darf
+ individuelle Heldenvorgeschichten
+ sehr umfangreiche und übersichtliche Forschung in den Bereichen Militär, Entwicklung des Imperiums, Wirtschaft und Handel, und Wissenschaft und Erkundung, die auch mit Text beschrieben und bebildert ist; und sogar mit Suchfunktion um die einzelnen Technologien schneller zu finden
+ abwechslungsreiche Quests mit mehreren Kapiteln die sich je nach Fraktion unterscheiden und auch zufällig starten
+ diverse diplomatische Möglichkeiten
+ neues und zugleich übersichtliches Politiksystem inklusive Umfragen, Wahlen und der Möglichkeit der Wahlmanipulation ohne dass es überfrachtet wirkt
+ Helden können auch in den Senat kommen, wo sie Gesetze erlassen können die ihrer Ideologie entsprechen; und je Höher ihr Bekanntheitsgrad wächst, desto drastischer können jene Gesetze ausfallen
+ Regierungsform kann gewechselt werden
+ Raumhafen mit dem man überzählige Bevölkerung in andere neue Systeme verfrachten kann
+ Nebenzivilisationen die man mit Einfluss unterstützen kann um regelgemäße Abgaben zu erhalten, oder um sie letzen Endes zu assimilieren
+ Weltraumpiraten die per Schwarzem Mal auf andere Fraktionen gehetzt werden können
+ Söldner zum Anheuern die unter neutraler Flagge auch Verbündete angreifen können
+ Handelsoptionen mit einem richtigen Markt, bei dem Angebot und Nachfrage den Preis bestimmen
+ Handelsniederlassungen, Nebenfilialen und Handelsrouten die unterbrochen werden können
+ Portale und Wurmlöcher
+ neben den kleinen, mittleren und Träger-Raumschiffen gibt es später auch kleine Raumjäger- und Raumbombergeschwader
+ Terraforming
+ Herausforderungen die der Fraktion eine Belohnung gewährt, die sie zuerst erfüllen
+ Allianzen halten erstaunlich lange
+ Kooperativer Sieg zusammen mit verbündeten Fraktionen möglich
+ Leviathane, Zitadellen, Moloch und Ausmerzer (DLC)
+ 8 kostenlose DLCs
+ hohe Spielzeit von über 150 Stunden für eine große Galaxie mit etwa 10 Fraktionen
+ großer Wiederspielwert aufgrund der doch sehr unterschiedlichen Fraktionen (z.B. die Ungefallenen breiten sich auf eine ganz andere Art aus, die Lumeris können Planeten kaufen und die Vodyani benötigen noch nicht mal Planeten, sondern leben nur auf Schiffen, usw.)
+ Multiplayer mit bis zu 8 Spielern (nicht getestet)

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1976260851

NEGATIVES

- einige wenige seltsame Musikstücke (ES2-Remix-Tracks)
- keine deutsche Vertonung
- zu wenig Symbole und Farben bei den Fraktionen zur Auswahl
- einmal auf einer Spacelane, kann man erst wieder umdrehen, nachdem man angekommen aber dann dem Gegner meist in die „Bewachung“ geflogen ist
- Raumschlachten können nur taktisch vorgeplant und nicht selbst ausgeführt werden, so dass man nach der Planung nur noch zusehen kann (was aber immerhin ganz gut aussieht)
- Bodenschlachten werden leider hässlich auf C-64-Niveau präsentiert, dass man gar nicht glauben kann, dass diese zum selben Spiel gehören
- wenn die gegnerische Flotte den Rückzug antritt oder nach einer Niederlage noch ein paar Raumschiffe übrig sind, setzen diese ihren Kurs in das eigene Territorium wo man sie nur schwer wieder einfangen kann (das passiert auch im „Bewachen“-Modus, mit dem man ja Eindringlinge explizit verhindern möchte)
- wenig unterschiedliche Heldenraumschiffe
- keine politische Interaktionsmöglichkeit mit anderen Parteien innerhalb des eigenen Imperiums
- mit zunehmender Rundenanzahl ruckelt es beim Rundenwechsel (gefühlt ab Runde 150)
- Hacking im Weltraum (ist aber nur mit entsprechendem DLC relevant)
- Bug: öfter wechselnde Sortierung der Savegames

FAZIT

Endless Space 2 aus dem Jahr 2017 von den französischen Amplitude Studios ist ein anspruchsvolles 4X-Rundenstrategie- bzw. Globalstrategiespiel. Genau wie bei anderen Spielen dieser Art, ist auch dieses sehr komplex, aber der ständige Tutorial-Ratgeber der einen optional durchs Spiel begleitet, ist sehr hilfreich. Das Spielprinzip ist das gleiche wie im Vorgänger, Master of Orion oder Stellaris. Die Mechaniken sind dabei aber erstaunlich intuitiv und logisch. Industrielle Gebäude sind grafisch alle orange dargestellt und Dust-Gebäude in goldgelb, nur um jetzt mal zwei Beispiele zu nennen. Man weiß also auf den ersten Blick was ein Gebäude, eine Systemverbesserung oder eine Forschung bewirkt. Wo der Vorgänger mit seinen sehr spärlichen Quests noch eher trocken daherkam, hält einen dieser Teil mit Aufgaben ständig auf Trapp. Es gibt immer eine Handvoll aktive, schön geschriebene und interessante Quests, deren Ziele man versucht zu erreichen, da bei Erfüllung derselben nicht selten einzigartige Technologien oder seltene Ressourcen winken. Und das Tolle dabei ist, dass man auch hin und wieder Entscheidungen innerhalb der unterschiedlich langen Questreihen treffen kann, die sich direkt oder auch erst viel später auswirken. Genauso hab ich mir das schon damals gewünscht.
Optisch und mechanisch ist es der Stellaris-Konkurrenz weit voraus. Und auch der Forschungsteil und die Hintergrundgeschichten schlagen die Konkurrenz. Man steuert in Raumschlachten seine Schiffe zwar nicht selbst, aber das ist in der Globalstrategie (außer in den Total-War-Spielen) ja auch nicht üblich.
Wo Endless Space 1 einfach noch steril wirkte, merkt man hier überall schon mehr Lore. Endless 2 ist auch viel übersichtlicher und strukturierter als sein Vorgänger. Es ist elegant und „gepolished“ und hat mich gut unterhalten und auch gefordert. Dafür erhält die Space-Opera von mir einen Daumen nach oben.

Die Einstiegsvideos von WritingBull auf YouTube sind sehr zu empfehlen.

Endless Space 2
800. Review in meinem Archiv.
Sega hat dieses PC Strategie Weltraumspiel 2017 rausgebracht.
Es gibt mittlerweile 16 Update und DLCs dafür, die ich alle habe.
Du übernimmst die Führung einer Zivilisation auf einem Planeten mit dem Ziel ein großes Stellares Reich auf zu bauen.
Angesichts des alters und der größe der Galaxie ist es nicht verwunderlich das du nicht der Erste und auch nicht der Einzige bist, mit dieser Idee.
Von daher stößt du immer wieder auf Ruinen und Artefakte die es zu erkunden gilt. Auch das aufeinandertreffen mit deinen bislang unbekannten Nachbarn stellt sich nicht immer als Segen heraus.
Es macht Sinn eine Kampfstarke Flotte zu haben und was noch wichtiger ist eine Forschungseinrichtung. Ich erwähne das weil die Forschung in diesem Spiel wohl das wichtigste Element ist. Was nutzt dir eine Kampfstarke Flotte wenn du schon im ersten Raumkampf bemerken musst das der Gegner dir Technisch so überlegen ist das er deine Flotte in ein Trümmerfeld verwandelt.
Ein weiterer wichtiger Punkt ist die Verwaltung deines wachsenden Volkes, dass schon bald aus mehreren Kulturen bestehen sollte.
Meiner Ansicht nach ist gerade dies der einzige Schwachpunkt an diesem Spiel. Obwohl ich dieses Spiel nun schon 5x gewonnen habe
mit unterschiedlichen Einstellungen und jeweils unterschiedlicher Vorgehensweise bekomme ich dennoch immer wieder Probleme mit der Expansion und dem damit verbundenen Bevölkerungswachstum. Was bei mir immer wieder zu Aufständen führt.
Ich empfehle es dennoch weil es einfach sehr gut gemacht ist und ihr viel entdecken und machen könnt.

Endless Space 2
800. review in my assive.
Sega released this PC strategy space game 2017.
There are now 16 updates and DLCs for it, which I have all of them.
You are leading a civilization on a planet with the goal of building a large stellar realm.
Given the age and size of the galaxy, it is not surprising that you are not the first and not the only one with this idea.
Therefore, you always come across ruins and artifacts to explore. The encounter with your previously unknown neighbors is not always a blessing.
It makes sense to have a powerful fleet and, more importantly, a research facility. I mention this because research is probably the most important element in this game. What use is a powerful fleet if you have to notice in the first space fight that the opponent is so technically superior that he turns your fleet into a debris field.
Another important point is the management of your growing people, which should soon consist of several cultures.
In my opinion, this is the only weak point in this game. Although I've won this game 5 times now
With different attitudes and different approaches, I still have problems with expansion and the associated population growth. Which always leads to riots for me.
I still recommend it because it is simply very well done and you can discover and do a lot.

Eins vorab: Ich mag solche Spiele - seit dem nach wie vor unerreichten Master of Orion2 ;-) Die wirklich schöne Grafik gefällt, auch die Bedienung geht leicht von der Hand - nur: irgendwie zündet das nicht (bei mir). Man klickt sich von Erkundung zu Erkundung, von Bauauftrag zu Bauauftrag, von Forschung zu Forschung, schickt seine Schiffe dahin und dorthin... verfolgt ständig (wirklich nett gestaltete) Aufträge, die aber irgendwie dann doch keine richtige Relevanz besitzen und auch sehr ähnlich sind. Der Flow, der gerade bei so einem Spiel wichtig ist, fehlt mir ... alles einen Tick zu ... Hochglanz? Am Ende bleibt mein persönlicher Eindruck: Sehr sehr nettes Frontend für ne gewaltige XLS Tabelle deren Management wahnsinnig viel Zeit verschlingt ;-) Es ist kein schlechtes Spiel, empfehlen würde ich es jedoch nicht ...

An sich ein geiles Game, sehr viele interessante Geschichten zu den ganzen Völkern und macht auf jeden Fall Spaß.

Wie andere in ihren Reviews schon angemerkt haben gibts leider einen Bug der das Spiel unspielbar macht. Also ich konnte immer problemlos zocken, irgendwann vor ein paar Monaten dann mal das Spiel geschlossen und 2 Tage später wollte ich weiterspielen, ab dann freezed immer relativ früh der Bildschirm ein, im Hintergrund kann man noch hören wie man rumklicken kann, aber ohne Bild machts keinen Sinn zu spielen. Teilweise freezed es beim starten, teilweise im Menü, teilweise beim Laden der Spielstände, weiter bin ich noch nie gekommen seitdem das Problem auftritt.
Darum leider einen Daumen nach unten bis das gefixt wurde.

I'd love to recommend this, however after 160 turns the AI doesnt end their turn no matter what I do. Apparently the bug isn't rare and has existed since alpha.
So until thats fixed it's a no for me, which is a pity since i had a blast until then.

Eigentlich machen mir solche Spiele Spaß. Dieses Spiel treibt mich zum Wahnsinn, immer wenn ich ein System aufgebaut habe kommt die Meldung, dass meine Tochtergesellschaft zerstört wurde. Zusätzlich ist auch das Sternen-System zerstört. Es ist keine feindliche Flotte zu sehen und gegen Hacking ist das System auch geschützt. Es kommt kein Hinweis warum das geschehen ist. Generell ist es auch ein Schwachsinn, dass eine Blockade-Flotte nur einen Zug blockiert und es zu keinem Kampf kommt, sonder die feindliche Flotte weiter ins System eindringt. Es mach mir absolut keinen Spaß mehr, ich hasse das Spiel mittlerer weile. Ich wollte den Schrott zurückgeben, das hat aber leider nicht mehr geklappt, weil ich zu lange probiert habe.

Spiel ist ok, aber viel als Anfänger viel zu komplex um überhaupt ins Spiel reinzufinden.
Ein Grundlegendes Tutorial in welchem die verschiedensten Elemente erklärt werden fehlt oder ist nur unzureichend.
Insgesamt ist das Frustlevel einfach zu hoch, wenn man überhaupt keine Chance hat und man mit haufenweise Problemen konfrontiert wird. Finde ich sehr schade, denn das Spiel hat enorm viel Potenzial.
Insgesamt überwiegt aber das Negative und daher keine Kaufempfehlung.

Das Spiel wäre großartig, wenn es fehlerfrei wäre. Leider ist das auch mehrere Jahre nach der Veröffentlichung nicht der Fall. In den letzten zwei Spielständen kam es in Zug 239 bzw. 427 zum de facto Ende. Ab dann konnten Züge zwar noch beendet werden, es ging aber nicht mehr weiter: es wurden keine Ressourcen mehr gesammelt, die Wegpunkte wurden nicht mehr aufgefüllt, wodurch die Flotten bewegungsunfähig wurden, die Baulisten wurden nicht mehr abgearbeitet usw. Lediglich die Zahl der Züge wurde noch hochgezählt. Für den Spieler ist das wie im Koma: die Welt dreht sich weiter, während der Patient zu nichts mehr fähig ist. Das ist traurig, denn solange das Spiel läuft, bereitet es Spaß.

Also ich mag das Spiel.
Könnte mehr Mods geben und etwas intuitiver sein - stellenweise Startschwierigkeiten, da schlecht erklärt - aber dann entfaltet es sein Potential.
Spiel viel Coop mit einem Freund, nett.
Sehr gut sind die sehr unterschiedlichen Rassen.

Leider nicht noch mehr DLC geplant und auch keine anfänglichen Raumbasen. Wie immer könnte KI besser rein, aber wirklich schlecht ist die jetzige auch nicht. Also grundsätzlich super Spiel.
Ich mag es auch mehr als Galactic Civilization III.

Probably the most beautiful space 4x available at this time....the graphics are just amazing. The game is a great improvement over the first one with lots of new features and ideas. I am not a big fan of the Mumbo jumbo used by Amplitude in their games as they tend to invent new words for almost everything. The background stories are great (check aslo the cartoons they have produced for this game). An excellent game with lots of replayability. I just wish that some aspects were better explained (like how do you increase the number of troops on a planet, etc.).

Endless Space 2 is a legendary 4x IMO. It has a fair share of bugs, yes, but now that the developers are focusing on optimizing and fixing said bugs, it can only get better. Each faction has a unique playstyle and designed to win via a specific victory. The lore runs deep, and the mechanics are a nice mix of new and old. One of my favourite features is undoubtedly the ability to customize and create your own faction based on the aesthetics of any of the base factions. I personally own all DLC and think they add a decent amount of new content to validate the price, but that is personal opinion more than anything. One CRITICAL NOTE is when it comes to MP just like all of the ENDLESS 4X games if one person has lousy internet the whole game will fall and possibly freeze. Make sure all players, should you intend to do MP have a decent connection.

Possibly one of the best space based 4x games around. Manageable concepts, storylines, branching mechanics , truly inhuman characters and a lilting soundtrack. The base game alone will provide you with many hours play, before you go into multiplayer. A steepish learning curve helped by a simple resource base that allows others to follow you in - and openly competitive wars that don't rely on Doomstacks. Sneak, Hack, Atrophy, Convert or Absorb your opponent instead of Zergrush - though kekeke is still a possibility.
Flaws: Each race will take time to get used to - what works perfectly for one will kill you with another.
Some of the races powerplays can be frustrating to fight around, but there will be a way.

Overall: A good investment, solid play, no dull mid game and more meaningful choice than Mass Effect 3.

I like the easy of play. Most games you need to try and figure out every aspect of the game to try to enjoy or even get through it. This game has many functions but they are easy to pick up as you go. The random scenarios to offer a challenging aspect to the game. the one flaw that I am not fond of is that the NPC counter parts seem to be hostile right from the start and brokering negotiations with them can become quite expensive.

3 year old game, many game breaking/Game Ending bugs that are so simple, you won't beable to understand how they are even a thing or yet entirely brick your game from progression but they do... I'm on my 3rd playthrough of the game, and my 2nd playthrough was ended at 350 turns in by a glitch, and this my 3rd playthrough is bricked at 250ish. Big Time investment to get near the end of a playthrough and have it ruined by glitches, some of the glitches with research were posted about 2 years ago and still there they are - NOT FIXXED - and breaking the game. If you are lucky enough to get through a single playthrough without something completely ruining it and potentially ending your game like my 1st playthrough was fine.. (lucky)...
its not terrible, alot of little things that aren't good or well thought out, but most games have some flaws albeit usually not game-ending flaws... Only decent thing about this game is the different races, their mildly interesting, but i cannot recommend this game to ANYONE, because 3 years in, and game-ending/ruining bugs in the game mechanics itself, AKA enemy Ark dieing on the end quest lodestone system making it so the quest cannot progress because for some reason the remains of a dead ark count as a enemy fleet.. and there is no way to remove it, it being the MAIN end-game quest, it is kind of important to want to finish and failing it due to a simple glitch, that if the company cared enough in 3 years to play their game a few times could of easily discovered and made the ark not count as a enemy fleet while its dead, does not feel good. like its my 3rd playthrough and i'm finding these game-ending/ruining bugs, in 2 out of the 3 games i've played i'm sure there are more i've yet to discover, but how they haven't been fixxed in 3 years makes me just say REALLY?!?!?!?!

This game used to be 10/10 for me all the way from Early Access to Vaulters. I could cope with bugs and questionable balancing here and there, as the game was actively getting better with every patch. I saw how dedicated the developers were and how they actually listened to the community through their games2gather website. But then the time passed and the devs got a new toy - Humanking. ES2 slowly got abandoned, the next Supremacy DLC was decent, but the drop in quaility was already noticeable. Following Penumbra DLC was a low quality cash grab and the latest Awakening DLC is just a piece of hot BS, which broke the game so hard, I have to turn the DLC off to actually play the game. Today I opened steam and read the news from the devs, that the game is finally fixed, and the patches are basically over. This is laughable at this point, major flaws are still unfixed since beta, and the whole Awakening is basically untouched and still unplayable. It could be tolerated in the days of active development, but now the development is officially over, and those issues are left for modders to fix. I expected that, but it is still painful to watch, how they killed and burried such a great game. Even Civ 6 is still getting new patches and new content, and it is 1 year older. ES2 had such potential, and the devs obviously stopped caring about it only a year after full release. It is still great, but it could be so much better. I enjoyed those long hours I played the game and am looking forward to Humankind. Yet, I cant stop feeling scammed and betrayed. This could easily be a 1000 hour game for me, but it will never actually become one.

The game is really fun
But its one of those situations where they baked a beautiful cake, then iced it with dog shit.
The game doesn't work well, it constantly crashes and freezes.
The developers don't really care.
You go on a form and you find 50 people posting the same issue, asking the devs for help, and they just ignore them.
Don't waste your money on this heartbreak.

I went in with low expectations and was pleasantly surprised. I've previously played Endless Legend which I didn't enjoy because of the slow pace. Endless Space 2 plays a lot faster and you never really have to waste your time waiting for animations to finish.

ES2 mainly derives its charm from how different the races play. Not only do all of them have interesting and most of them unique mechanics, they also have individual questlines with special rewards. Quests offer a sense of direction throughout the game, but ES2 suffers from the same syndrome every other 4X suffers from - the endgame is a chore, once the lines are drawn in the sand it's just busywork to get to the victory screen.
However, ES2 is relatively light on micromanagement and warfare is less annoying than in most other 4X.

Overall verdict: ES2 is what Stellaris could have been if it was actually fun to play. Big recommendation.

I've only played probably 6 or 7 games and have well over 200 hours on this game. It's very user friendly compared to Stellaris which is also a really good game. I enjoy playing this and the modding community encourages me to customize a little bit more to remove some annoying restrictions. Granted, those restrictions are there to stop the game from crashing but sometimes you just want to have fun until it crashes. I like that you can visualize space battles and there is definitely strategy involved but not much for combat. It's an easy game to pick up and learn for this genre.

It's too annoying to play, in every game I've played so far the system improvement screen shows one thing. Darth Paul, it shows that he's the only improvement in every system and that he takes 24 dust, regardless of the maintenance of said system. My experience with Endless Space has been amazing but the game doesn't work, I can't go 20 turns without a bug stopping me from doing something, and the developers aren't going to fix it.

If you want to play this, wait for the game to be on sale and don't buy the dlc.

There is no Dana, there is only Horatio.

Feels a lot like Civ, though much deeper (but not in a disheartening way) and very stylized. The amount of options is slightly overwhelming at the start, but the smooth presentation and general creativity hooked me enough for counterbalance. Pretty quickly the options become a good thing.

After extensive research in good space 4X games I've concluded this is the best one (not counting Stellaris because Paradox games are their own thing). But there are plenty of equally good or better non-space 4X games, and I suggest playing those until ES2 is on a discount you consider good. I'd still be waiting if it wasn't a birthday gift.

While most of the DLC content is just icing on the cake, the factions play very differently from one another so I'd look into them.

After playing Endless Legend and Endless Space, I bought this game for full price. When I started it, I was met with a race selection menu where half of the races were unavailable, and just there to (like ransomware) get me to spend money to actually get the full game. Which I had already paid for.

What a terrible practice. Everyone involved with Amplitude is forever tainted by this disgusting gouging. I'll never buy another Amplitude game.

I didn't thing ES2 was as good as ES or EL anyway, but I was so disgusted I just don't want to touch it again after playing one game.

If you buy it, watch some guides on YouTube, they help a lot, because the game has many aspects that are a little bit hidden, or hard to understand.

The first Endless Space was magnificent and gorgeous and this one is even more so. There is more depth to this than the Civilization series in a few ways, like unit customization and battle tactics, and it ends up taking more effort to understand and play. I would also say that a game in Endless Space 2 will last much longer than one in Civ 5, which isn't so bad until your opponent gets a win from behind right before you can claim victory.

10/10 - would get my soul crushed after a 20-hour game again.

I have been looking for a successor to Master of Orion 2 for a long time. Sadly, the remake that came out several years ago left a lot to be desired in the A.I., and was abandoned by the developer. This game however, comes very close to the feeling of playing MOO2, despite having different game mechanics. Definitely recommend for the SciFi 4X gamer geek.

Do you enjoy having random pirate fleets spawn in every one of your systems with no warning or way to interact?

Do you enjoy having a run bricked because you couldn't clear every one of those systems in 5 turns, causing them to flip to enemy empires?

How about if it's done by an AI that had been friendly from the start, and gave no indication whatsoever that they had a problem with you?

I don't even know what DLC causes this absolute abomination of game design but this kind of trash didn't happen when I was playing 1.5-2 years ago.

I'm honestly baffled at the sheer failure of game design that is what I just experienced.

Love it. I enjoy resource management and tech development, as well as fleet management. I had the Horatio race and appreciated the interspersed humor throughout the game. Took about 30 hours to win a 234 turn game. Became addictive--one more turn, even though it's midnight. Liked the visuals of the galaxy. On Easy setting, adversaries are not really aggressive once you develop powerful fleet technology. I did walk into some traps earlier on.

The gameplay is great. But when the game is in advanced stage (100+ turns), then it's getting increasingly difficult to get to the next turn, as the turn-switching freezes. And what I saw in forums, the developer doesn't care. If you don't want to see end of the game, then this is game for you.

The game is pretty great but the 'End turn pending' bug makes it pretty much unbearable. I've had this on [strike] multiple [/strike] every playthrough, and pretty much from turn 1. Checking it out online it seems like there's no fix - at best, you can donate your save file and hope for the best.

The quickest work around I have found is to QS / QL and try again (but this doesn't work every time). I was able to deal with it for a while but, as the game progressed; the turns got longer and the load times increased.

If you have a slow PC, you're gonna spend a lot of time reloading for no reason.

I have been interested in strategy games for a REALLY REALLY long time, but was never able to really stay interested for long. The premise would be attractive to me, I'd buy it and then I'd move on for something a bit more cinematic or action packed.

I kept waiting for my gateway drug, the game that would finally break the pattern and sustain my interest long enough for me to figure out how strategy games work and to enjoy the inevitably slower pace.

Endless Space 2 was it for me; the game that let me finally really enjoy a strategy game long enough for it to get its hooks into me and now it's helped me get into the genre with other games, though I still keep coming back to this one.

A lot of it is the user interface, it's clean and polished and uncomplicated looking; nowhere near as intimidating as the many others I've tried. The tutorial just kind of lets you go, keeping you on a lightly handled leash with tool-tips and such, but it did not take me long to just dive in.

If you want to get into strategy games but haven't quite been able to yet, I highly recommend giving this one a shot. It's simple and clean enough to not be overwhelming, but complex enough that it sustains your interest. There's a lot of great flavour and the soundtrack is phenomenal.

Highly recommended for newcomers to strategy.

I have had this game for years and disliked it, but every 9 to 12 months I find myself giving it a try to see if I can unlock a positive experience. Sadly, I repeatedly fail to execute the precise and delicate dance that's required to have fun with this game.

It's hard to know where to start. I'll say the best thing is the artwork, which is really top notch. Every other aspect feels worse than similar games (Stellaris comes to mind). Movement is clunky and unpredictable, combat is an opaque unfun dice roll, there are simply too damned many resources, and the AI suffers from the usual absurdities.

There is a great game in here, I know it -- too many people love this for there not to be -- but for the life of me, I cannot find it, and I love this genre. Why is assaulting a planet such an unbearable chore? How does manpower even work, anyway? Am I really supposed to use that ship editor? Why do enemy ships just flow freely through my territory, hiding in star lanes? Why am I warned that an AI is about to win the game after just 40 mins of playing?

Perhaps I need to watch youtube play sessions to get the pace right; am I spending too much time on each turn, or not enough? How much micromanagment am I really supposed to be doing turn by turn? There's just so much here that feels opaque. We'll see how I feel in another 9 months when I try again.

I want to like Endless Space 2 -- I really do. It's a beautiful game, complex yet balanced, with a thoughtful approach to the 4X genre. But there is one bug that ruins my gameplay every time. The game hangs on End Turn and won't go on. It happens only occasionally at first, but by the time I get to turn 150+ it happens every turn. I need to save, quit, and reload in order to move on. That series of seven clicks and a bit of waiting doesn't seem like a big deal, but when you need to do it just to move on each turn -- Every. Single. Turn. -- it really puts a cramp on the fun. I eventually spend more time moving to the next turn than actually playing the game. The forums tell me that it's a bug that's been there since the beginning. No patch, no solution. I hope they get this one figured out, but it's a down vote until then.

It started out great, it was exciting and felt fresh. It seemed like a different approach to 4X with different systems in place than in others. However, somewhere mid-game it started to feel less exciting and more like a drag. The AI behaves weirdly at times and the whole diplomacy feels like it cannot work with this AI. Some of the systems seem complex at first, but turn out to be surprisingly shallow later on... Overall I was disappointed.

While Endless Space 2 attempts grandeur in battles between space empires, there is quite a bit to be desired. While the game promotes the ability to win in a variety of ways, there really isn't that many options. More than likely, you'll be forced into a technology or economy victory, as the AI will hardly ever allow an influence victory and galactic conquest is almost entirely out of the question due to dated mechanics. There is beautiful planets, and you do feel a sense of discovery while sending probes to investigate anomalies. There is even some custom dialogue that makes opponents feel a bit more real. However, the majority of time playing is attempting to understand a complex 4X strategy to only be underwhelmed at how small the game feels once understood. Like real space, Endless Space 2 feels mostly empty.

Sci-fi 4x strategy game with a lot of moving parts, but if 4x strategy is your thing it sucks you in and doesn't let go of you. Lots of moving parts, but figuring out how they fit together is the fun. Borrows lots of elements from the Master of Orion games and it's a worthy successor to them.

pretty much the best strategy games I've ever played. Each faction has so much personality and interesting lore that it drives me to learn more about not only the game's universe, but more about the game's mechanics as well. There's so many ways to play that are specific to each faction and each mechanic has so much depth. The DLC is kinda trash and unnecessary but the Mods do add a lot of new content to keep the game fresh, though I find the base game to have plenty to sink your teeth into already. Getting this game on one of its many sales is a steal. At full price I personally feel it's still worth it, though personal feelings may vary.

I don't think that I can not recommend this game given how much I've enjoyed playing it. I would say that among space 4x games, this is in my opinion one of the best ones, probably right up there near or even next to Stellaris.

Frankly put, there isn't another game out there that has quite so much character. Every faction in this game, regardless of their strength, has very unique core mechanics and an overall playstyle that's very different from other factions in the game. Every playthrough on a different faction feels completely different; I haven't played another 4x game that even comes close to having such diverse factions.

In terms of gameplay, I would say this game is likely one of the simpler 4x games. The DLC doesn't really add too much depth to the game (unlike, for example, Civ 6), and overall, the base game isn't terribly complex either. Constructing planets is done in somewhat of a simplistic manner, the tech tree overall is pretty simple to understand and use, and fleet and ground combat, while pretty, are fairly straightforward and simple in terms of how to win or lose at them.

The component of this game which really adds depth and complexity to the gameplay isn't the core mechanics; it's the racial mechanics. The core mechanics in this game are simple and easy to both understand and use; the player wins the game by properly utilizing and abusing their specific race's mechanics. Even then, however, this is likely one of the easiest 4x games to comprehend, making it an excellent choice for a person's first 4x game. That being said, even an experienced 4x player could easily get 100+ hours out of this game if they enjoy it; there's enough content in the game to challenge a player for a significant amount of time; more than enough to get their money's worth.

Second off, I would also like to say that this game has absolutely gorgeous visuals and music. There simply isn't another 4x game that even comes close. This game looks great, and while it's difficult to communicate how nice this is in a review, it really comes across in your gameplay experience. The music and visuals really help to immerse and engage you in the experience of your gameplay. That said, this brings about a minor drawback, in that the game is slightly more performance intensive than other 4x games.

I also think that the DLC for this game is both good and reasonably priced. Not really a lot to say beyond that.

Unfortunately, I do think this game falls short in a few categories, specially balance and overall community. The game's balance is decent, but there are a few things in the game which are distinctly unbalanced, alongside a few longstanding bugs the devs have never gone back to fix. Second off is the community, which is rather welcoming, but unfortunately rather small. What this translates into is less community content in the form of mods and such and also less support from the devs in terms of releasing new DLC, bugfixing, and rebalancing things that need to be rebalanced.

The game is also one of the worst 4x games for a Co-op campaign.

TL;DR:

Pros:
-Some of if not the best faction diversity in the 4x genre.
-Simplistic base gameplay makes it easy to pick up but variety of factions allows for sufficient depth to gameplay.
-Gorgeous visuals and memorable music.
-Solid DLC, has some bugs and minor balance issues but generally all worth it.

Cons:
-Requires a good PC.
-Small community/not a lot of mods.
-Not as much dev support as other games in the genre.
-Poor co-op/online experience.

Overall, I think this is one of the best 4x games for getting into/back into the 4x genre, taking a break from other more micro intensive 4x games, or just enjoying an interesting world with rich lore and cool visuals. Hope this review helps any readers.

Soundtrack? Gorgeous

Gameplay? Excellent.

Visuals? Excellent.

Tons of DLC? Pretty fucking annoying. The Base game feels like an unfinished Alpha compared to having all of the copious amounts of DLC. Much of which I feel could have been bundled together to make it more affordable or less annoying over all. Buy the DLC on sale, seriously.

The absolutely only negative thing I have to say is the DLC shit. Everything about the game is excellent otherwise. The DLC itself is even well made, just too damn much of it.

Very good turn base strategy game similar to a Civ game, factions are varied and follow loose tropes without being overly specific and are loaded with flavor. Being their ideology, having their own spaceship hulls or their own soundtracks.

The base game is probably the best version of the game, it is playable, complete and feels the most balanced. The expansions add new layers of gameplay which could be seen as new tedious micro management or unnecessary. Supremacy adds new and stronger weapons of mass destruction and also new means of protection against them. Could be seen as redontant. Penumbra adds hacking which is powerful for how simple it is and is poorly intuitive, should be seen as spying/stealing maneuvers. Never got Awakening looked absolutely awful.

A glorious mess of a game, I'd give this a shot if you think Civ 6 doesn't do it right. I agree with Sseth that ES2 ticks every box for me and what I crave in a 4x game - including the awesome ability to customize your own ships ala Alpha Centauri. Really love it.

Unfortunately, there are bugs, and I really, really don't like two of the DLC - so I have them disabled. Plays just fine without them and has full content unlocked otherwise, just none of the weird mechanics added. Very wise on the developer's part to make it that way.

Fun when it works but it usually does not.
I find myself spending too much time googling how to get around some gamebreaking bug rather than playing the game, I find myself having to reload autosaves every few turns as the AI becomes stuck and the scoreboard stops functioning entirely. Not to mention the multiplayer is an even more volatile environment to play in.

I've always craved more story to my strategy games. Yes, the player can make up a story as they play but that can be tougher as the game wears on. With Endless Space 2 there is a very strong narrative already built into the game in the background AND into the game play itself. Yet there is still room for the player to weave those stories into something of their own making. I particularly love the missions and how those weave the story into the game play. To work along side that wonderful story is engaging game mechanics and amazing replayability. This is why I've spent so many hours playing ES2, more than is noted here (offline mode does not add the time).

TL;DR - Great story, solid game mechanics, and very high replayability make this a great recommendation.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little heretic? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Church of the Virtual Saints, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on the Academy, and I have over 300 confirmed proliferations.

The on screen alerts that wipe out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, tree. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can upload you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with a bare Cloth.

Not only am I extensively trained in preemptive orbital bombardment, but I have access to the entire tech tree of the Church of the Virtual Saints and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your unevolved ass off the face of this five planet system, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “peaceful” tendrils were about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking influence.

But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you faithless idiot. I will shit Holiness all over you and you will drown in it.

One of the best 4X space strategy games out there. It has some downsides, but the pros outweigh the cons by far.
The strategy is turn based, and AI is okayish.
But the real treat is the game art, its visual and UI style, and the music.
By Gods, music by Arnaud Roy is so Effing beautiful that the soundscape alone makes this a memorable experience. This is art, pure and simple.
At sale price, there is very little reason not to own this game.

Probably the cleanest UI I could ask for including a beautiful atmosphere and feel, music is pretty good when you find yourself idle enough to listen to it. I've got thousands of hours in Paradox games and Total War games and this game is most definitely coming up on the list of my top games as of right now. I do only have 34 or so hours in the game only playing 2 different factions but so far regardless it is very fun for me, and is most definitely fun with friends and other players as well.

Let me start by saying I'm a very avid fan of strategy games. I grew up with the likes of Dune, Command and Conquer and Civilization. And I'll immediately get down to the inevitable comparison to the last one: I've spent thousands (yes, literally) of hours with that game series.

Civilization 6 is still my favourite strategy - let alone 4X - game in existence. But Endless Space 2 comes very close indeed. Whereas Civ has the purity and refinement that requires decades to achieve, which, let's be honest, no competitor has, Endless Space oozes style, slickness and ingenuity the other greats in the genre have a hard time matching.
Amplitude have created something unique and worthwhile - assuming this tickles your fancy - and that I would wholeheartedly recommend.

In all fairness the game is not without its faults. The combination of factions (some of which are objectively stronger than others) and game settings can leave you in dire straits from the very start, no matter how well you play. But that is at the same time the game's greatest strength. Every game feels very unique and special and if you're dealt a bad set of cards, well, who's to stop you from simply starting over?

I would recommend everyone who enjoys this kind of video game to also check out Amplitude's other titles, predominantly Endless Legend, Endless Space 1 and Dungeon of The Endless, although that last title is - while set in the same universe - a different breed altogether. I think they are a great developer who deserve more attention. And no, I am in no shape or form affiliated with them.

Endless Space 2 is a turn based 4X strategy game that takes after its predecessor, which I reviewed favorably last year and applauded it for being the first space-themed 4X game to capture and keep my attention for more than an hour or two. I am only now reviewing Endless Space 2 after having played three separate games as two factions (though I dabbled in other factions for their tutorials).

In Endless Space 2, you pick a faction, explore the galaxy, and decide whether you want to conquer, fight, research, or talk your way to victory over your opponents. The factions here are diverse enough to offer an array of options. For example, for my playthroughs as the United Empire, I focused on conquering while my planets pumped out resources to support my war efforts. These playthroughs included many fights (which you can watch if you choose, which is always fun). This is usually my go-to faction in strategy games: the dominators, conquerors, or authoritarian iron-fists. However, I also played a game as the Vaulters, a DLC faction focused on science and technology. I rarely fought unless I needed to, instead spending most of my time building up resources to support my research, exploring the galaxy for curiosities to support my efforts, and defending my systems while biding my time for a science victory. This was my longest game, and I found I enjoyed it a lot. In games like this, Endless Space 2 feels a lot like a simulation game; there are tons of options for you to build up your solar systems, terraform planets to focus on different resources, and construct wonders or improvements. In this sense, Endless Space 2 can be as relaxing or as relentless as you want it to be.

If you have any experience with 4X games, Endless Space 2 should come fairly naturally to you, though it has multiple tutorial options for players of all skill levels no matter what faction you choose or parameters you set. Endless Space 2 also adds a “Sandbox” difficulty (found below “Easy”); while I haven't yet played in this mode, it is likely to allow you to mess around and get used to gameplay before trying your hand against harder AI. As with the last game, I recommend starting on “Easy” difficulty with the tutorial set to on until you get your bearings.

The one major criticism I had of Endless Space was how you could build up magnificent fleets with the latest technology and get decimated by a particular faction without understanding why. Basically, there are two types of offensive damage and defensive protection: physical (projectiles, hull) and energy (beams, shields). In the original game, it was extremely hard to figure out what your enemy was using, and therefore it was a crap shoot to figure out how to combat it. In Endless Space 2, this is a lot clearer. Each time a battle commences, a screen pops up where you can change tactics and battle strategies. Now there is a plus sign beneath each party, allowing you to view in detail their fleet and its physical/energy attributes. This helps you to choose your battle strategy (some strategies give you bonuses to particular damage/defense types, for example) and perhaps even your build of future ships. Diplomacy also offers you many more options here; as long as you have discovered them, you can attempt diplomacy at any time, and there is now a “suggest terms” option where the game will help you make a deal with another faction if what you want (peace, a trade agreement, etc.) is not quite up to par with what your opponent will accept. (The game will often add a tribute of a special resource, for example.)

What are my criticisms of Endless Space 2? You can no longer claim all victories in one match if you achieve them in tandem. You must instead reload old saves or start new games to go after other victories. That the original Endless Space allowed this was rare, so it's not a huge criticism. Though it is just as beautiful as its predecessor, Endless Space 2's loading screens (particularly the initial screen and the screen before each battle) are far longer. The original loaded battles in seconds; this loads one loads them in about 40-60 seconds. Sometimes, you'll choose to watch all battles, but the game will decide simply to auto-resolve certain battles instead. This bothered me. Every once in a while one particular faction will offer you the same diplomatic action for multiple turns in a row, clogging up your notifications. Horatio was my ally in one game and kept offering me a science agreement I couldn't afford; his notification popped up every single turn for over 60 turns before I finally could afford the resource drain and said, “OKAY, FINE!”

Overall, Endless Space 2 is extremely similar to its predecessor, though it has a few setbacks and a few improvements. This is a game I will keep coming back to. If you already own the original and wonder if you should “upgrade,” I think it's worth it—on sale given the similarities. If you're looking at the franchise and want to know where to start, it's here. The two games are similar enough to where I don't feel you're missing out if you buy one over the other, though the quality of gameplay improvements make Endless Space 2 slightly better than the original. I continue to be impressed by this series and will support future projects by AMPLITUDE Studios.

If you like mechanically different races that play and feel different than the others and you like space and combat and customization and 4x? Then buy this game. The base game is great and the DLC is up to you. The lore gets better the more you delve into it and the art is legit. Buy it at the normal price and you won't regret it. Buy it on discount and you'll thank yourself for one year. it's a game you can come back to over and over again when you have that 4x itch that needs scratching.

Absolute legendary TBS-game with an awesome storyline which is uncommon for these types of games. Every faction has their own distinct trait, but the game can become a bit stale after a couple of playthroughs. Except the storyline, which is all in all quite useless in terms of granting buffs, the endgame is quite boring. Not nearly enough detail put into combat or the amount of different shiptypes to make the endgame fun. If you have all the resources you can just massproduce the strongest ship, which depending on the difficulty you play on, just stomps the AI.

Huge props to the studio for making free dlc:s and not taking 20 euros for a bigger expansion (I am looking at you paradox).

Pros:
- This game has the most amazing soundtrack I have ever listened to
- Amazing story
- Fun factiontraits
- Pretty nice graphics
- Interactions between fleets are pretty nice (blockading and guarding systems)
- Good diplomatic systems between factions

Cons:
- Micromaneging your planets are a chore lategame
- Combat is pretty boring
- If you are not playing rush-style then you spend a lot of time doing nothing as many factions

Overall score is a 8/10, combat needs to be improved in some way too make it more interactive than just slapping some modules on your biggest ship

This isn't so much a sequel to Endless Space as it is a refresh-remaster of it; but, boy, is it a banger. Like Endless Legend, the playable factions in Endless Space 2 have such incredibly strong and diverse flavor that you can't help but roleplay as them if you're playing to their strengths – and you can remix their faction traits to create your own?! Bro.

It's astoundingly immersive, but I understand that the learning curve is steep, which is the only critique that I can give it.

This is a game that has forgotten it's a game. The user interface is confusing, which is a problem because 90% of the game is just clicking around in menus. You never really see your planets, you never really look at your ships, your citizens are just sections on pie charts... there's just no meaning to anything in this game, I just feel like a disinterested paper-pushing bureaucrat the whole time I'm playing.

It's strange though, because I REALLY like Stellaris, and people criticize Stellaris for the same things that I'm criticizing this game for. The difference for me is that Stellaris has something to it that makes my imagination go wild, but Endless Space 2 fails to curate my imagination in the same way.

I've got two major issues with this game.
1) multiple and repeated corrupted saves. I've taken to saving my game multiple times under multiple names just to find that all the saves are corrupted. this isn't acceptable.
2) I'm not entirely certain why; but this game is very boring. it has all the elements I love in a 4x game but it's just boring.

A Civilization-like game but superior in every way:

1. Very unique factions, each faction plays completely differently instead of just some stat changes.
2. Awesome art style, polished in every interface. There's even a short cinematic for every faction.
3. Great UI design, can seem a little too much at first but after learning the basics they are very interactive and informative.
4. Much smarter AI than Civilization series, they understand when to stay peace instead of having everyone declaring war at you like a bunch of idiots. Trading or demanding resources from them are also a lot more reasonable than Civilization series, in most case if you think it's a fair trade the AI probably thinks so too.
5. Units do not become outdated as technology progress, ships you have in the first turn are just as viable as a unit you construct in turn 200.

The game itself is fantastic but i can't recommend a game as buggy as this one and amplitude is completely uninterested in fixing an of them. there are a ton of bugs that will just end your game, especially in multiplayer and its not acceptable.

Perfect game on paper. It contains so many great ideas poorly executed, it's a shame.

ES2 is amazing in so many ways: The UI, the general atmosphere, the music. The way info is brought to you works well. Exploration is amazing. Minor factions, heroes, huge fleets, behemoths, pretty unique factions. The Endless Universe. Wow, what more could you ask?

Well sadly, so many systems are boring or complex for no reason. In the end, they make the game frustrating and leave you bored and unwilling to start a new game. One more turn? No thanks... Here are a couple of examples.

The elections and political parties system is a total snooze fest. Just ignore it. Combat is boring as well, you barely have any control over what's going on. It always seems to favor the AI, somehow. Don't even mention diplomacy...

The tech tree is super hard to navigate, it's hard to find stuff you're looking for. The luxury resources are nearly useless compared to Endless Legend, as they're only used for upgrading your star systems.

Late in the game when everyone's at war, it's even hard to spot, or select fleets and figure out what belongs to who. That's ridiculous. ...So many pop-ups!

I'd love to recommend that game, but I can't. It has too many shortcomings that make it boring as hell. You often buy a game for its cool stuff. And Endless Space 2 is full of cool stuff, full to the bring. But it has so many boring and/or frustrating systems/things, it's a no-go for me.

Very fun game. Haven't played any of the big DLC races yet, but I am thinking of buying them.

Game is unbalanced in a good way. Each race feels distinct and encourages you to play to their strengths.

I especially like the depth of the game, which I didn't appreciate until after I had played a good few hundred hours. The more I play Endless Space 2 the more I enjoy it.

Stellaris-like ship customization, turn-based like Civ. A solid game to enjoy, although I have difficulty finding the way to tactically win battles. It is not entirely clear beside overwhelming firepower.

Had a reservation as I thought it might be just a bad copy of Civilization but boy was I wrong. It's not only superior to Civ, it's also beautifully unique in design. Highly recommended strategy gem.

ADVICE TO PLAYER: Learn to play the base game and enjoy it for a while before pouring all them DLC's to your first playthrough. It would be extremely overwhelming and not recommended.

A fantastic 4X game to play. It’s rare for me to be able to complete a campaign in a strategy game. This one has just the right pacing to finish with a satisfying end.

Forget Humankind for now at least and let's talk about the crest jewel in Amplitude's crown. Their forte is creating visually and aurally attractive games with truly unique factions that play very differently from each other. And this game delivers what is possibly the best Turn-Based space 4X game available on Steam. All the factions in the base game require the player to take a very different approach to the game and not just play the same game with each faction (Of course, you can try to do that if you play on the lowest difficulty settings).

Not only do they have different play styles but their ship models vary from race to race. The Riftborn have ships with lots of weapon slots on them and so they can make hard hittersz while the Unfallen have ships with lots of defensive and support slots but only one weapon slot.

The factions also have their own unique quest lines which grant the player new heroes or improvements to build on their colonies. These quests are in addition to the many collective or competitlve quests that are ongoing in the game. You can ignore all of these if you just want to play a 'straight' 4X game but you will miss out on some powerful rewards.

There are a lot of unique and innovative game features in the base game at the end of its life. The Hacking system is a bit of a marmite-like feature - you'll either love how different it all is or you'll find it a complete distraction and boring but it sure is different. I have absolutely no idea why they didn't take the government and laws system from this game into Humankind. Especially as each race in your empire has different political biases so that you can find yourself sliding towards Militaristic governments if you assimilate the 'wrong' independent civs. It's simply one of the best systems I've seen in any 4X game like this.

I'd like to add that unlike some space 4X games, this game allows you to design ship classes from your hull types which don't auto upgrade to the newest version using that hull type. If you create a dedicated decloaker and call it 'Snoopy', it will only upgrade to the newest version of the 'Snoopy' ship and not the latest hull type like other games when you upgrade your fleets. I design all manner of specialised ships to incorporate into my fleets and I wish other space 4X allowed me to do the same.

Absolutely amazing jewel of a game, being a lifelong fan of action based games, I never expected that turn based game can be so much fun.
+Lovely graphics, nice short animations whenever something important happens, clear UI, albeit destruction of ships while in combat looks rather weird.
+All factions get their story-driven quest lines where your choices matter, well at least a little. Some better some worse but for what it's worth it's a nice addition. Random events and quest are a bit repetitive after few games but they do add some additional flavor, getting you temporary or permanent bonuses or nerfs.
+6 different ways to end each game with win conditions slightly differing for solo empires or alliances.
+Soundtrack is really nice
+some factions are stronger than other but you can win with any, just depends on playstyle.
+singleplayer is nice, multiplayer is well, interesting.

-Awakening DLC was a mistake don't even try turning that sh*t on. Well, unless you are a masochist enjoying getting griefed by batsh*t crazy AI every few rounds, without any reason.
