Master of Orion

SimTex / Microprose 1993
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Master of Orion - just a poor copy of Civilization or an independent game? The opinions differ extremely. There is hardly anyone who thinks it is mediocre. Either you hate it or you love it. As everbody can assume, I belong to the second group (else it would be in a different category). I'll explain why.


Master of Orion II: Battle at Antares

SimTex / Microprose 1996
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Master of Orion... one of the best balanced strategy games ever made. Also one of the first to successfully simulate diplomatic relations (albeit with a limited set moves). One of the very few games in the explore and expand genre in which the bureaucracy of each turn (i.e. taking care of the basics) stays manageable. How can Battle at Antares possibly improve on that? There are two levels to that answer. The first one is how they tried improving it. The second one is what works and what doesn't.
