By A Customer on January 28, 2002
Format: Paperback
The Ascendancy Strategy guide is a fun book, and it has a very nice poster of the various different specisis in the game. However, there are also three "scenerios" speaking from viewpoints of different alien races as they attempt to gain 'Ascendancy.' I found these to be a bit poorly written, as well as the fact that some things in the guide are just plain wrong.
Just something to think about, but it you are a die-hard Ascendancy gamer--like I am--then purchase it.

Unlike others, I'm not playing this game out of nostalgia. I'm new to the game, but found a copy and thought I should also buy this book just to get me started. Needless to say, it's a good book, and very useful if you are new to the game! Interestingly enough, the author (William Trotter) didn't receive any real support from the development team, and he had to play the game like crazy to learn every minor and major facet of it. He put a lot of careful work in it and it shows.

Plays just like I remember it, starts off VERYYYYY slow but then gets good. Graphics and gameplay ahead of their time. Company delivered as promised, no issues.
