It's sort of fun for the lower difficulty levels, but it looks like the AI cheats from the Admiral level on up. The "three-way" mode becomes two AIs versus you, for example. Recommended at a low price.

An average of 9/10 players will call you a "noob" at an average of every match. "♥♥♥♥♥♥" comes close.

Galcon is apparently a venerable series/genre of games, but this is one of the worse entries in it despite being by the original publisher. It lacks both any sort of singleplayer other than random skirmishes, and simple multiplayer features that are normally considered de rigueur, like private matches.

There's better, if somewhat less pretty, free Flash versions of it, basically. Or the cheap DSiWare knockoff Castle Conqueror series. And that's sad.

Game is interesting, but no sense of matchmaking and fair maps takes away the chance to get good at it, especially if you are new to it, as every single game you play will be a loss. There are only 30-40 people playing it and they have been playing it for a while, so it's impossible to find any matches for your level.
And game is mostly defined by having a good start on the map, especially 1v1 is determined by a random dice roll while generating the map.

So If you like luck based games, try it. Otherwise you will just keep on quitting matches five seconds after looking into the map. I've found it similar to playing chess where a dice roll determines who gets which pieces. Even if you win, you won't know if it was skill, or luck.

The admins really suck, they will kick you for being new. That, and the fact that the game is so buggy that half the games end up broken really is terrible. Would not reccomend getting.

I really enjoyed playing this game with my friends. My favorite part was helping them get more planets then attack them and make them loose everything.

9.5/10

One of the originators of RTS2X...

These games go away back to the 1970's, and were amazing. This game is really a reboot of those old games. In fact the F-10 retro mode in it harkens back to the first DEC and DECWAR games. Modern games like Auralux, Eufloria, and Gratitus Space Battles all owe their lineage to THIS GAME and it's ancestors.

One of the best, most satisfying games ever made, right here..

This game is pretty good, many game modes. If you are determining what game to get between Fusion and Legend, I recommend Fusion because of replay value and multiplayer. 7/10

I am completely addicted to this game. I've been playing both Fusion and the version for the iPod for years now. It's such a simple premise but games can last minutes (iPod) or hours (Fusion). Teams is by far my favorite mode.

The game is a clone of many games that are free flash games for 20$. Not a very good game. Its not fun and does not include anything new.
