GameSpy writes: "We've been known to enjoy our share of 4X games (a reference to the four key activities of expanding, exploring, exploiting and exterminating), but they can get bogged down in micromanagement pretty frequently. In Lost Empire: Immortals, however, developer Pollux is making an effort to minimize the messing with minutiae that this style of game is prone to. Taking a step back and looking at the big picture, Immortals focuses on the broader aspects of conquering a galaxy, so rather than busy yourself with individual colonies, you'll set policy for entire star systems in what we think could be an innovative approach."
-Broad scope eschews micromanagement
-infinite growth in the tech tree
-Hands-off approach to empire management may not work for everyone
