Customer Reviews

Poor graphics for this day and age.

Game play is fine, a little complicated for most. I think it would be better to introduce people to space battles and then after an hour of game play introduce new features (i.e. planet battles).

The graphics don't look great (fonts, interface design, 3d triangles of the 90's), really detract your attention from the entire experience. This is a further frustration when the game is badly programmed so as to make high-end macs run slow and jumpy. My Mac is overheating running the game, the 3d camera views are jumpy with line distortions.

All in all, it's not a bad game for the money but could really be an excellent game with some graphical improvements.

Could be improved.

Still a few glitchy areas as far as general performance goes, but nothing tremendously bad.
Though in all honesty, I would have expected this to be released with the Forces Of Corruption expansion. The expansion has been out years and the original game out even longer! (Naturally). But alas, I still don't see Forces Of Corruption on the app store yet. Is there any news of it being released on here? As far as things that NEED fixing is concerned, I would like to see ships in the space combat stop moving slowly across the map! This is an issue that no longer exists in FOC.

Good game but has flaws

I used to have this on PC - worked fine. This version works well on the most part, but the death star is useless as whenever you use to destroy a planet - it causes game and macbook to freeze, causing a complete restart to whole system.
Also using the former right click control doesn't work with mac mouse - a reedit of mouse controls would of been nice.
So if you buy - don't waste time buying the death star as it will only lockup your system.
