Galactic Empires Description

Honestly a great game

Great game, granted a lot of the play is based on crunching numbers if you choose to field a massive fleet, something I don't recommend as that would just add stress to something meant to be, to a degree fun. As for previous reviews saying the admins are catering to the higher ranked players, they aren't. They are trying to do what is best for all players involved in the game and the game itself. They probably wouldn't be allowed to be an admin for very long if they did that. Granted not everyone knows all that goes on behind the scenes, the amount of money one has invested in the game doesn't play a role in what goes on as they have been trying to remedy, what I look at, as possible elusive bugs that rules have been created to prevent the abuse of and are solving them as they can without generating more. And on another note, having your fleet annihilated from time to time is part of the game and not a reason to quit. One should just pick themselves up, dust off and try again while making change to how you played the game prior to the loss of what you had built. There are forums in the game to work with. Like I said. A good game, badly in need of the update the admins have been hard at work on. Hopefully everything goes as they have planned.

Osiris plays GE

Ive played for about a year and its a very challenging game. I really enjoy playing it but ive 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.


Only for those who are willing to put in some effort

This is a strategy game that is real time. Anyone can succeed if they put in some effort, and are willing to fail a few times. I learned by getting my fleet crashed twice. Now, one of the players i looked up to told me that i fleetsave (download game and look up) religiously, and am therefore almost impossible to crash. If you are looking for more of an immediate gratification, this is not the game for you. Your only protection from larger players is a small handful of rules and your own strategy. The rules are above reproach. Any unsatisfactory action is a direct result of something you as a player did or did not do, whether by intention or not. Now for the players, my experience is that they are reletively rude. reletively, i say, because my experience with the second universe (also look up and download, i reccomend uni2 even higher than this one) is that the plaers are nice, even if many are trolls. most of the trolls are intimately familiar with the game, and will help a noob in need. many even will send large resource starter packages if you ask NICELY!
