I wrote a very nice review but unfortunately, it must have timed out so nothing was saved.  Thanks guys, I APPRECIATE knowing THAT would happen.  Next time I'll just copy then paste if need be.

Suffice to say the game blows.  The research trees are too restrictive and unimaginative, the playability versus the computer is limited, and the one resource important to obtain in the game, purple crystal, can be obtained on the black market for a few credits.

If you want to waste 6-8 hours and $50 buy the game.  Stardock is riding on a name here, and the best use for this software is as a drink coaster in it's current form.
