Endless Space Review - ThriftyNerd

Mike Dao of ThriftyNerd says, "Since X-Com was such a great remake of the original turn based strategy game, it got me looking into other often overlooked genres of my youth. In my early teens, I played a lot of 4x games – explore, expand, exploit, exterminate. Those that grew up in the same era as I did will recall great titles, such as Master of Orion and Ascendancy. Thinking about those games makes one wonder – if Firaxis can take a niche and somewhat antiquated genre and modernize it into a critical darling, winning game of the year awards left and right, then surely someone can or has actually done so with the 4x genre." (Endless Space, PC) 3/5
