Long ago the immortal Aeons presented the fledging races with the technology to travel the stars. Without pause for reasoning, vast fleets colonised the cosmos expanding the interstellar community until a great cataclysm occurred.

Now the Aeon's, a technologically superior race that once guided the lesser races, is all but lost to myth. Their colonies and technology lie beyond reach - scattered throughout the galaxy, like so many stars. Only fading memories recall the cause of the Aeons downfall and the loss of the star-gates that ended the first Galactic War. Devoid of the means to navigate the stars, the empires of the six major races began to look inwards as communication between worlds was lost.

From the depths of the abyss, the long forgotten desire for exploration and conquest calls out once again. For it would only be a matter of time before each race would - recover the knowledge to rebuild their fleets. Reawaken their desire to explore. Rekindle their need to expand. Return to warring ways.

As the six galactic empires make ready for the arduous struggle ahead, all manner of citizens are rallied to the cause. Scouting expeditions leave the safety of their stellar berths seeking out potential systems ripe for colonisation. Close behind terra-forming ships prepare planets for swelling populations. Throughout countless shipyards powerful battle-fleets are forged from newly acquired resources, ready to face the threats that emerge with every cycle of the sun. A new age has arrived.

The Age of Immortals has descended upon the fledging empires of the known galaxy. Will you dominate or be destroyed?

Colossal Galactic Map: Explore the vastness of a fully populated macrocosm, teeming with up to 5,000 stars of varying configurations. Encounter the interstellar communities of six playable empires and twenty-eight uniquely evolved minor civilisations.

Vast Scientific Multi-Nodal Research Tree: Conduct research across eleven scientific categories, branching out into 150 individual advances.

    Customise Ship Construction: Spaceship models consist of eight classes that conform to a mission type - exploration, reconnaissance, defensive patrolling, fleet interdiction and planetary invasion.

      3D Rendered Dual Warfare System: View massive 3D rendered space battles between turns, through an action camera and adjust your strategy based on the outcomes of the space battles.

        Multiplayer Action: Invite up to ten players to play in any one game. Create attributes to ensure that no two sides play with identical races.

         Galactic civilisations rehash and just as bad

        | | See all butch999's reviews (1)

        Utter tripe, spend the money on something nice for someone you care about you'll get more fun out of it. If you ever played Galactic civilisations you will recognise this immediately, I think its from the same people they have just made the graphics slightly better (beleive it or not).

         Space junk.

        Ok... my first impressions of this game were so bad I played 10 minutes of the tutorial and hit Alt-F4.
        The game intro video automatically put the word "Budget?" into my mind, as the narration sucked, the scenes look like they were painted/drawn in a GCSE art class, and there appeared to be futuristic space faring people wearing spartan helmets.
        The game is also turn based, which I really am not a great fan of. It completely takes the challenge out of it because turn based games are for 'people who don't have the brain power to think fast enough'.

        I'm sorry? Was this a new release? The graphics... don't exist? I'm sorry, but you'd expect these graphics in a state of the art pre-millenium game. There was absolutely no voicing in the tutorial, compared to every other game I've played which DOES.
        It seemed to be that the in game text uses standard Windows fonts. Excuse me? Windows fonts? "Yay let's use Arial and stick shadow effects behind it to make it look less budgety!"
        No! You fail!
        A long long time ago, I had 'Homeworld; Cataclysm', and I havent played a space strategy since then. I wanted to try a new one to try and relive those delightful days, but this game just killed my inner child. Tbh I would much rather go back to playing my ancient Homeworld game.

        You know, fair enough, the developers of this game are evidently new to the games developing scene and that they don't have much financial backing, but seriously FFS, this really shouldnt be here. It deserves to be as one of those internet downloads as shareware and then you can buy yourself the full version for £5 if you liked it that much. Really though, RRP £29.99? Thats far too optimistic. I wouldn't pay £5 for it. If it's gonna be retailed...then it belongs in the bargain bin of the shop. Shelf space isnt worth it.

        Ok, I apologise for my VERY harsh words, but at 1am, one can hardly be so kind. The box cover IS nice though..

        Please excuse me if you find this game isn't so bad after some time, but I found it so unbearably awful and dull that I closed it after 10 minutes of playing. I might try again tomorrow and see if the daylight brings any justice to the game.

         Good Game Idea. Nevertheless, not recomended.

        This game does deliver what it promises in the description, but nothing more. It has a random galaxy generator, so there are a lot of maps. And there are a lot of science projects/research too. However afer a few hours of slow gameplay, it does get somehow boring. At some times missions pop up, which help a bit to drop the bordom. I did like the UI despites a few glitches it had. What puts this game off is the battle sequances. No battle is based on luck and strength. Most battles are based on experiance, knowaldge and intelligence. Something which does game does not give you the possiblity. Some more effort in this game, and it would have been a lot better. Maybee in version 2? who knows.

         worse than seeing your nan naked!
