Quoted from Master of Orion III Reviews:Check out these quotes from Master of Orion III reviews & previews
"The elements for a great game are present, but the focus and execution of those elements is not. Combined with an underwhelming and questionable AI, this puts MOO3 at a disadvantage right out of the gate. In the end, it's difficult to recommend this title to anyone but diehard MOO fans."
"...the Quicksilver team appears well on its way to delivering a game based on its promise of a deeper but easier game to play. Whether or not it ends up dominating players' lives remains to be seen, but you can look forward to long nights exploring, expanding, exploiting and exterminating when it lets you take on the universe early in 2002."
"It's a terrible shame to see the Master of Orion series take such a huge step backwards in terms of playability."
"Deep within the columns of numbers a game lurks, probably, but Ill be damned if I can find it. Every turn Im reading pages and pages of numbers trying to keep a grip on my empire with the molecules on the very tips of my fingernails, and I just about cant do it, and its not actually all that much fun to try."
"Games like this have their place and their fan base, but even a turn-based strategy fan like myself doesn't really have the time to invest in this game. In the end, it's a good game for those who have the initiative to play it for hours upon hours, but the rest of us are better off finding a game with a little more fun and action."
