“It was a remarkable game, and more remarkably still, its developers Holistic Design Inc. recently updated it with a major patch, 25 years after its original release.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“Emperor of the Fading Suns radically changes the standard formula in several ways, so much so that there really isn’t anything else like it today.”
Strategy Front Gaming

“Emperor of the Fading Suns does something that is getting increasingly hard to accomplish: It breathes life into the stagnating and repetitive genre of space-conquest games.”
