this is a HUGE project and it's worth the money. if you are interested, here there is a great database and game, thanks to the devs readyiness you can ask features and improvements. For me, at a certain point, the game became less important than the data contained in it. i simply loose myself in testing units, reproducing my navy's fleet and bases, looking at mounts, sensors, weapons.
ah, and if you need a certain unit/thing you have researched on, they will put in for you! if you are interested in the genre, this is the best thing ever.
if you are low on money, choose the digital release, it's cheaper and you can always print the manual on paper. even if i must say, my booklet with my name on and color printed manual it's really satisfying.
