This galaxy is ancient, and its first intelligent life was the civilization we call the Endless.

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!
Now, many people accuse the ai of cheating, and it does seem so sometimes, but other times not so much. If you feel the ai is cheating, all you have to do is change up your tactics a little bit and be more random. Out-playing the ai will lead you towards victory even when the ai does cheat. In the real time battles, countering what your enemy does gives you a bonus, but does not neutralize what they do. The ai often has inferior ship designs so when you design your own, you will definitely notice the difference and realize that once you become good at the game, the ai will have to cheat to have any chance of success or even mere survival.
If you are new to the civilization-like turn based strategy genre, then do not play this game, do not buy it. If you are a veteran or casual gamer that really found enjoyment in the civilization franchise then defintely buy this game, play it, and love it. It is a great change of pace and you will find yourself immersed in the game play.
Author's note: There is a slight story line to this game with species backgrounds but that mostly influences victory conditions and is a fun, side-dish to the main action that is of no consequence. There are many elements of the game that are quite amusing and creative that the player will notice immediately (like the difficulty level descriptions). I will also note that there are glitches in the game that will trouble you but I have not run into a single one that cannot be solved with a simple google search. They can also turn into advantages once you know how to deal with them, and prevent accidents. Final note, this game is a steam based game and required steam activation for me, but is no different from Civilization V in this way so be warned. (Steam-hosted games have fewer multiplayer issues +)
Edit: I have not played Masters of Orion
My main complaint is that it got straight up boring after a few weeks of gorging on the game. It's probably just personal preference and I'm sure some folks would disagree, but I just lost interest. Maybe I'm too used to terrestrial strategy games like Civ.
My only critique is that the AI is not very cunning and does not step up to the plate with a challenge when you clearly have the upper hand. The AI has no chance against well-built fleets of capital ships, because the AI continues to use medium-sized ships, which are easier to destroy and can be picked off to wear down their fleets and eventually destroy them. If they ran with well-defended capital ships, the battles would be much more interesting, because you could theoretically have battles ending in a draw with no lost ships. Right now it's more of a rush in and blow everything up at long range before they kill you.
