Product Description

Long ago the immortal Aeons presented the fledging races with the technology to travel the stars. Without pause for reasoning, vast fleets colonized the cosmos expanding the interstellar community until a great cataclysm occurred. Now the Aeon’s, a technologically superior race that once guided the lesser races, is all but lost to myth. Their colonies and technology lie beyond reach--scattered throughout the galaxy, like so many stars. Only fading memories recall the cause of the Aeons downfall and the loss of the star-gates that ended the first Galactic War. Devoid of the means to navigate the stars, the empires of the six major races began to look inwards as communication between worlds was lost. From the depths of the abyss, the long forgotten desire for exploration and conquest calls out once again. For it would only be a matter of time before each race would recover the knowledge to rebuild their fleets, reawaken their desire to explore, rekindle their need to expand, and return to warring ways.

As the six galactic empires make ready for the arduous struggle ahead, all manner of citizens are rallied to the cause. Scouting expeditions leave the safety of their stellar berths seeking out potential systems ripe for colonization. Close behind terra-forming ships prepare planets for swelling populations. Throughout countless shipyards powerful battle-fleets are forged from newly acquired resources, ready to face the threats that emerge with every cycle of the sun. A new age has arrived.

The Age of Immortals has descended upon the fledging empires of the known galaxy. Will you dominate or be destroyed?

Features:

  • Colossal galactic map: explore the vastness of a fully populated macrocosm, teeming with up to 5,000 stars of varying configurations.
  • Encounter the interstellar communities of six playable empires and 28 uniquely evolved minor civilizations.
  • Vast scientific multi-nodal research tree: conduct research across 11 scientific categories, branching out into 150 individual advances.
  • Customize ship construction: spaceship models consist of eight classes that conform to a mission type--exploration, reconnaissance, defensive patrolling, fleet interdiction, and planetary invasion.
  • 3D-rendered dual-warfare system: view massive 3D-rendered space battles between turns, through an action camera, and adjust your strategy based on the outcomes of the space battles.
  • Multiplayer action: Invite up to 10 players to play in any one game. Create attributes to ensure that no two sides play with identical races.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unpolished, nothing new March 19, 2008
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I recently bought this game because I had a gift card burning a hole in my wallet. Hadn't heard much about it, but had played other Paradox produced games before, was surprised it was only $30 for a new release.

Quickly discovered why, this game was released too soon, it's extremely buggy out of the box. I spent 4 hours trying to resolve crashes before even getting to play my first game. Other bugs I've encountered during the game range from annoyances to major problems (ship building bugs where ships you've spent resources on won't actually be created construction is done). I've only played for a few days, so this is a preliminary review.

The interface is reasonably good, but much of the implementation is non-intuitive. This just don't happen the way you would expect them (for example you need to have all the resources for ship before construction will even start, and they're consumed immediately), the help menus are lacking and the tutorial is rather short.

The graphics themselves, although not a key need for a 4X game, are still outdated compared to other recent 4X games that have been released. There doesn't seem to be very much of a cohesive storyline, I've put quite a few hours in and had relatively little if any plot involvement in the story game.

The galaxy does have a very large scope, with up to 5000 systems, but colonization is also done at a system level, and not by an individual planet level as many other 4X space games, although the up to 28 minor races (which have larger and better roles than others I've played) and 10 major races at once is on the high end.

1.0 out of 5 stars NO WINDOWS 7 !!!!!! May 12, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I assumed (we all know, yes,,,)that since it was for vista that it would work on 7, it does not, no matter what it does not. I tried running on a virtual xp box but the video memory requirement is 512MB (huge!) and the max you can allocate for a vm is 128.

I could never even got the game to start, I have a $10.00 coaster. If you are running windows 7, DO NOT BUY!

**UPDATE** 22May11 After several days of putzing about with it, I did get it to work. Not for the novice.

Base System - Windows 7 Ent x64. Phemon Quad 4 motherboard w/AMD64 Quad Processor. 8 GB Ram. NVidia GeForce GTX 9800 w/512 RAM. This is not a weak machine.

1. Install .Net Framework 4.0
2. Install Direct X 11.0
3. Install Latest MS XNA Framework
4. Ensure all C++ distributables are up to date (Windows Update)
5. Install the game
6. Download and install patches for the game 1.02 through 1.08
7. Set the Compatibility Mode for the start icon to the following (right click, properties):
_A. Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP SP3.
_B. Disable visual themes.
_C. Disable desktop composition.
_D. Disable display scaling on high DPI settings
_E. Run this program as administrator.
8. Start the game.

I still leave one star as it took me so long (literally hours) to get it to work.

2.0 out of 5 stars quality conscience April 30, 2009
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I agree with another reviewer that the game has bugs out of the box that take hours to overcome. I will not recommend this game to anyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars 4x that could have been better July 19, 2014
Verified Purchase
A very average TBS 4x game if you ask me... but also has a lot of bugs. Chief among them is an imbalance of difficulties. when playing it feels that all the difficulties are actually 1 level higher than set. so easy=normal, normal =hard etc. Another issue is that when building ships if it doesn't start building it doesn't tell you why which is infuriating to say the least. The last issue I have is the game always is over within 100 turns because most of the computer players are at war with you by turn 40.
For the cheap price the game is worth it and I kind of enjoy it (for now at least) hence the 3 stars... might be better if played with a friend. Either way I have a hard time recommending anybody buy this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent space strategy! May 4, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you like games such as Galactic Civilizations 2, Space Empires V, and Sword of the Stars then you must add Lost Empire to your collection! You will love this game! There are alot of things in this game that make it stand on its own. Leaders for example is an awesome idea, how they are implemented. They age and die after time then a new one will be randomly created at some time. The story mode in this game is all non-scripted and the galaxy is randomly generated no matter if you do story mode or custom game. So you can replay the story mode over and over. If you choose so, you can have a 5000 star random galaxy, kid you not! The AI is solid and plays the game well, the interface is easy to get around even when you have a large empire. One of the most addicting strategy games I have ever player. At last, looks like another space strategy classic is born.
