-graphics - interface -gameplay - races -real time battles -complex
Graphics : outdated and nothing nice (mainly text to look at). Even intro is "cheap" and ugly. You're stuck in 800*600 resolution. In battles, ships are Tiny and Ugly
Interface : big shock there, interface is very clumsy and very unintuitive.
Gameplay : AI can take care of 90% of the game, and you CANT micro manage like others games of this kind. Game gets boring FAST.
- Hard to manage fleet, hard to figure what's going on with research, hard to understand what's going on with diplomacy (war then peace with no reason). Right now the computer just CANT attack your planet.
Like I've read somewhere, this game is a slap in the face to Master of Orion 1 & 2 fans.
