This 4X game is totally awesome. It runs well in Win7 64-bit. I've played these type of games since the original MOO, and this one is AWESOME! I run the game in 1600x900 since my graphics card slows down in 1920x1024. The game looks fabulous.
Endless Space is a turn based space conquest strategy game. Battles play out in real time, but you get to choose a tactics card for the three battle phases - long rang, medium range, and melee. There are also leaders to be hired, and they can either lead a fleet or a colony. The leaders are pretty cool. Buildings can be built on planets but you don't have to place them as in MOO2. All structures affect all planets in a star system. Star systems are linked by star lanes, and the range of fleet movement is very good. There is no espionage and that is just fine for me.
This game has a lot of nice refinements over the old MOO games. Moving fleets, bombarding planets, blockading planets, technology tree rocks, fleet command limits, production, ship design is awesome, wow. There's a bunch of good things about this game.
The enemy AI is also pretty good. They'll fight hard.
Oh, it runs on Steam. The listing does not state that.
Endless Space is a very solid 4X space strategy game. I am very happy I bought this game!
