Master of Orion II: Battle at Antares Review written Thursday, July 24th, 2014 at 04:00 pm.


Simple: this game is STILL, 18 years after its release, the best 4X game you can find. It features diplomacy, ship and colony leaders, research, custom races, custom ships, strategic turn-per-turn battles, colonization and improvements building and overall a lot of fun. Incredible replayability, this is probably a game you could still play in 100 or 200 years as its core mechanics are so good it will never age.

Such an easy game to sink hundreds of hours into. Both MoO1 and MoO2 are up there with the very best turn-based strategy games.

The holy grail of turn based spacestrategy, close to be perfect. Space battles, ship development or build up colony defense anything was dimensioned for having fun doing it in the game. A not confusing research system and especially a decentralized administration system made this game "easy" to handle. GC (more) and CIV (less) games failed at this thing (rage quit). Since MoO2 no strategy game was so well balanced in the whole game mechanic, sadly a worthy successor is not in sight.

The undisputed king of the genre, MOO2 combines ageless graphics with well-thought gameplay elements to create a solid whole, one that has stood the test of time so far against various rivals. None of them have captured the magic that is MOO2. Each and every attempt to re-create it on later games has failed in one or some of the components of the original masterpiece. Custom races, research system, space/land battles, personalized diplomacy screens, leveling up officers, list goes on.. And yegods, why has no-one(?) re-created the great miniaturization-mechanic regarding the research in the game? It alone goes a long way. Fans of the game should check out the 2006 game Sword of the Stars or the upcoming sequel of it.

In my opinion better than its predecessor, no game since has come close, and I have played a large number of them.
