SeanD -> Distant Worlds Reviews (4/5/2010 7:11:58 PM)
Out of Eight - 8/8 PERFECT SCORE!
Gigantic living galaxies... A hallmark 4X strategy title... Grand strategy and classic 4X mechanics combine in a vibrant world...
Space Sector (Legends Review) - 9.4/10
I finish with this. If Master of Orion 2 was the 4X space strategy gaming reference of the nineties, then Distant Worlds Legends is the 4X space strategy gaming reference of the early XXI century. What are you waiting for? Buy it now!
PC4WAR - 9/10
[Translated from French] - A unique 4X game with a gigantic and immersive universe.. Distant Worlds is a small revolution in 4X strategy games.
PC4WAR (ROTS Review) - 9/10
[Translated from French] - Everything that didnít convince us in the almost perfect Distant World has disappeared and there are a few improvements too.
PC4WAR (Legends Review) - 8/10
[Translated from French] - Legends doesn't transform Distant Worlds; it improves it, refines it and much more to bring it to a new level
Gamesquad (Legends Review) - 9/10
Distant Worlds: Legends is a superlative expansion to an already fantastic sci-fi gaming experience.
Space Sector (ROTS Review) - 8.7/10
DW RotS made me feel in control of the lives and hopes of my civilization, I cared for them and could feel immersed in a huge galaxy interacting with other alien races. And that in my opinion is what 4X games are all about. That was one of the reasons I took so much time to review RotS, I was really enjoying playing :) And I will continue playing no doubt about that.
Game Squad (ROTS Review) - 8.5/10
Distant Worlds: Return of the Shakturi is a worthwhile expansion to a solid 4X strategy game. Really, there is no reason why a dedicated DW fan should pass it up.\
Eurogamer.dk - 9/10
Finally, a worthy successor to Master of Orion.
Review on Gamer's Hall - GOLD AWARD WINNER - 93%
[Translated from German] Enemy AI always has nice surprises... a gigantic play area... finally, a true space empire game!
Review on The Wargamer (ROTS Review)
The unbelievable vastness of the galactic environment modeled when fused with game play infinitely customizable to the playerís taste could well make this game an instant classic. Iím sold, and given my experience with the genre, thatís about as good a recommendation as you can get.
Review on Net Wargaming Italia - 8.7/10
[Translated from Italian] Distant Worlds is a game that is very innovative and intriguing
Pelit (Finland) - 84/100
Feels, in a good way, more like Master of Orion 3 than the real MOO3 ever did. It is very interesting, unique take to 4X-genre, very nice to play but needs more bloodthirsty AI opponents. War, not only skirmishes, please. [May 2010]
Absolute Games (Russian) - 77/100
Code Force is a small company, but it succeeded where more experienced studios failed Ė it created a worthy rival for Galactic Civilizations 2. Distant Worlds has its share of technical and ideological kinks to iron out, but this is definitely a step forward for the 4X genre.
Review on Gamer.no - 8/10
[Translated from Norwegian] This is a game that just gets better and better, and it has at least secured a permanent place on my hard drive for a long time to come.
Review on Cyberstratege - 8/10
[Translated from French] A believable and living galaxy... well thought out overall system, especially the economy.
Review on Estrategas de Sillon (Legends Review)
[Translated from Spanish] An illustrious representative of the 4x genre.
