ok so i am a big fan of galactic civilizations, Galactic Civilizations II, Master of Orion and Master of Orion II, the total war series, the civilization series and many other games of that genre.
I am however not a fan of RTS games, i played them all when i was younger and some more recent additions - command and conquer, dune, total annihilation, supreme commander. They had their moments but RTS can occasionally just become too stressful lol.
so in a search for a Galactic civilizations 2 replacement (great game but when will part 3 come out damit?) i came across distant worlds. I also came across Star ruler and tried the demo but it didn't strike home with me, however i will try star ruler some more later to see if I will warm up to it.
So given that how does Distant worlds compare? I love the idea but the RTS aspect turns me off. Should i jump in or maybe just keep waiting for that 4x space opera to be born that we have all been waiting for?
