Galactic Empires Description

Along the way to their empire, players can form alliances with other players, research technologies to improve space ships, and perform various missions.

Osiris plays GE

Ive played for about a year and its a very challenging game. I really enjoy playing it, been into wargames since they were on huge tables in the Rec room. Ive also read some of the reviews here and feel they are pretty rough with the game as a whole.
If you have alot of time this game rocks it mixes skill, resource management, and interaction with other players, all in with a space grand strategy theme.
I Must stress its a difficult game and not one of those play for 15 minute pocket passtimes. Takes hours and hours and you can lose all your work from a bad decision or just not paying attention. Many aspects are not intuitive and you learn from trial and error and by asking more expert players, especially by asking other players.
One thing is you cant be completely conquered out of the game, lose your whole fleet, yes. Have your planets nuked till the glow,yes. However you can always rebuild and not have to start all the way from the beginning which i think is really nice. If you think you can be a true galactic admiral its worth a try. We certainly could use more players.

May 2014 update: universe reset, all work lost, no warning no refund

July 2015 update: new ui, game much improved, but no staff or admins (all got fired for allowing/enabling cheating) however game subject to long periods of server down and time lost


I like complexity

This is the only game that I know which lets you have so much strategy involved. The learning curve is very very steep and most likely you will be crashed a few times, but you learn and move forward. First establish a good economy and then look for trouble. That's the way to go. I see some people complain of being crushed by stronger players. Well, with time and patience you can always be that pest to a strong player that they will leave you alone. What this game does is let you do that. Unlike other games I tried out there I always come back to this one. Just love it I guess. Word of advice though: join a clan as soon as you can. This will be your only source of good advice. Plus the forums. And one more thing, the level of communication between players in this game is amazing. Nothing like it out there.


The game itself can be fun, you can be patient and grow in the ranks upon learning the game. It also is not a pay to win game which means the only way to make it to the top is to put forth the time, effort and skills. Now to the ugly -
Developers are thieves and liars; imaginary rules exist that you cannot find anywhere in the game and if you break one, everything that you've spent time on is gone; and developers have a history of disappearing for months (years in the past) on end and allow cheating to run rampant. But if you can live with all of that, knock yourself out.
