Master of Orion 3 – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Blood and Gore, Violence

Parents need not worry. The most violent imagery in Master Of Orion 3 involves space battles, but your kids have already seen it in any of the Star Wars films. Parents of younger children should be aware that this game has a steep learning curve and has some concepts that may prove frustrating to learn. All buyers should know that describing the manual as "lacking" would be too kind, but Quicksilver claims they are working on a more informative version to be available soon at their web site.

Fans of strategy games and previous Master Of Orion titles will probably enjoy this game once the mechanics become clear. Do remember this may take some time to fully grasp. Hold out a bit longer and any initial frustration will fade; perseverance will pay off. The wide array of tools available allows the player to customize his or her game experience based on what he or she enjoys most.

Perfectionists can still modify every little detail as desired without sacrificing the holistic approach that is unique to Master Of Orion 3.

Multiplayer fans, have no fear. This mode works wonderfully and is too much fun to be healthy.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will miss nothing save a few unimportant phrases during the Ground Combat phase, but these are paraphrased in text as well.

Suckiest sucks ever

I would say, parents need not to worry, no kid will want to play with this piece of rubbish more as the initial five minutes, less if they go for nice graphics. And as for those space battles, it more like dots which fire red and blue lines at eachother.

Fans of strategy games will discard this sorry exuse of a spreadsheet appication at the point when they realise, their only job is pressing the turn button.

Moo1-2 fans bevare, the fact that this abomination bears the name Master of orion hurts, no seriously, i experiance physical pain when the realisation slowly came to me, that all those negative rewiews on the net are actually understaments. Playing this game is like watching a beloved pet die.
