Is this a little bit like spore?
Hi all

I want to know, as the title says, is this game in any way like spore. I did not like that game and that is the only thing that is stopping me buying this right now. I do like these types of games, although I did have to load wikipedia to find out what a 4x game was :p

What games can it be compared to so I can make a decision?

Thanks all :)

I bought it anyway but would still like to hear responses whilst it installs :)

Do you know the Civilization games? Closest game I could think of without naming one of the staple 4x games since you don't know the genre.

It's turn-based strategy.. so nothing like StarCraft if you have that in your mind at all. It's going to be slower-paced and a bit of a learning curve at the start probably. I'm yet to play this one in particular though.

Gal Civ, Space Empires and others. Real time version like "Distant Worlds" Nothing at all like Spore.

I have played it and on one hand it isn't like spore (good) but it leaves so much unexplained that I feel stranded after the tutorial ends (bad). I just ended up upgrading buildings and my ships were stuck orbiting pluto :p Yes I admit I am a noob to the 4x games however I must wait for a lets play on you tube before I understand it fully lol. Civ was the best example, mostly because I have not played the others :p

This game is very similar to Armada 2526 in the strategy and interface, you should check out the game any fan of 4X would like it.
