Review on Gamesquad

8.0/10 - Distant Worlds is the type of game you would get if Sim City and Galactic Civilizations made a baby together. It is both a remarkably deep strategy game and a wonderful galactic simulator. What is more, it attempts to be all things to people, allowing players to custom-tailor the gameplay to their liking.

84/100 - [Print Only] 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.

77/100 - [Translated from Russian] Code Force is a small company, but it succeeded where more experienced studios failed – 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.
