DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!!
It is broken. The devs are releasing updates at a snails pace, and Kalypso is trying to make amends by giving out 2 of their ♥♥♥♥tiest games instead of a refund.

I agree 100% with the OP, this game is not worth the $40 price tag and is the worst 4X game I have played since MoO3.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!

Don't buy it! Get Endless Space.

Seriously though.

It can't even scale different resolutions. I changed the resolution and everything was cut off at the edges.

As far as I can tell, you can't efficiently save and load games.

The camera controls only work sometimes.

It crashes every few minutes or so.

This game is very much in an alpha state and I paid retail price for it. I've had a support ticket open for 2 weeks now asking for my money back. Steam keeps giving me the run around. Steam provides a good service, but this has left a bad impression on me. I will definitely be spending my money more carefully here.

does this game have some chance to become beautiful as the trailer and the concept says?

I seriously doubt it. I think it will become abandon-ware after a few months. The devs and publisher have already showed that they only care about the money they made at launch from pre-orders and suckers like me. You would have to pay me to play this.

What a bummer, this looked like it could have been a really fun game. : /

I paid good money for this game and I am well disappointed. The writing is so small I can barely read it, the tutorial is rubbish. I spent ages moving my fleet around the solar system trying to find those waypaths the enemy fleets use and never found a thing, I'm really niffed with it. Will it improve? I hope so. If you want to turn the music off you have to do it every time you start the game, IT'S RUBBISH.

I genuinely believed this would be a good game and I would spend hours playing it, easily getting my money's worth. God, was I wrong! It is the biggest pile of crap to sit in my steam library and collect cobwebs. NEVER EVER EVEN CONSIDER BUYING THIS!

Agreed, was so looking forward to this game. Do not buy it. It’s not completed, they have been patching it but LOP is still not playable. I very much doubt this game will ever become what it had the potential to be….very sad.

Honestly this game could be great but it's so broken and untested that it shouldn't even be available to buy right now. If they fixed all the technical issues so it wouldn't crash so often it would be a decent 4x game. If they fixed it and made it work like it should it would be a phenomenal 4x game.

Until then it's as broken as SotS 2 was at launch.

well, I should learn to check forums before I buy games. I am really disappointed in this game. The graphics are pretty pathetic, and the game play is really slow. I cant get more than a few minutes into the game before it crashes on me. I like the concept, but this game has too many problems to be worth $40.

To be fair, there are some really awesome concepts floating around in LoP. But my god, even after the patches, playing the game is a serious snooze fest. waiting 40+ minutes to get a decent variety of ship components and setting up your economy JUST so you can blob attack with your fleet? There are no tactics involved when it comes to combat.

Also, what's the point of making it turned based if all you're gonna do is mash the end turn key? Every "turn" should require the player doing something. I can queue up my economy, build orders, and only have to watch the countdown on the research bar before making a very quick choice of what to research next.

Again, some solid concepts in LoP, terrible TERRIBLE execution though.

I wish I could give all the code monkies behind this game a huge hug, cause they're the ones tryin to fix it while taking the blame when whoever was in charge should've grown a pair and said, "Sorry guys, games gettin delayed, it's not finished."

With such a bad release and still having problems a month afterwards, I don't see this getting too much official support for much longer.

dont buy it - my version wont even run. I'm told that I have to uninstall (note - not disable but uninstall) zonealarm.

No other game I have seen requires me to do this.

I pre-purchased this software and I still cant get it to work. I have had no support form teh forums, nothing.

trust me... dont do it...
