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.

  • 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.

By J. Durheim on March 19, 2008
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.

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.

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.

The game wouldn't install. After much trouble it installed and now it still won't run. It does however read as if it's similar to Imperium Galactica and that is the best strategy game ever made. If I ever get to play it and it's even half as good as Imperium Galactica, it'll be a five star game.

I didn't buy this game at Amazon but I had to leave a review because my experience with this game is super-negative.

The game didn't set up at all and did not run.

One of the requirements for this game is that you must have NET Framework SP1 installed on your computer. If you don't, the game will try to install it onto your computer from the CD. I had NET Framework 2.0 SP1 installed but when my computer updated to NET Framework 3.0 and 3.5 from Microsoft, the updates eliminated the NET Framework 2.0 SP1 and replaced it with NET Framework 2.0 SP2 as well as with NET Frameworks 3.0 and 3.5. The game could not install NET Framework 2.0 SP1 from the CD. Then I I found out that the various versions of NET Framework must be installed in the order in which they were developed. So I tried to install the game without updating my NET Framework to the updated 3.0 and 3.5 versions. The game then encountered an error and still did not run.

Stuck, I emailed Pollux/Paradox Plaza for help 5 months ago but no response. I have already spent a great deal of time researching how to fix the problem. I also tried using the method used by one of the reviewers from above but that didn't work either. My computer is running Windows XP SP3 so my OS should not have been a problem since the game is made for XP and Vista. I also don't think that it's a good idea to not update your NET Framework to the latest version. Even if I wanted to spend many more hours trying to figure out how to fix the problem, I'm not a techie and don't know how to begin - beyond what I have already tried to learn. At this point, I don't want to continue questing for the mythical fix anymore.

The sole contribution of this game is to make my garbage can heavier tomorrow. Money down the drain. :-(
