Lost Empire: Immortals is one of those games that is going to appeal directly and heavily to a very, very specific audience. That audience can be defined by one simple question too, which bit-tech.net will put to you now.
Do you enjoy playing Risk?
If you answered yes then this is a game that may interest you as it really epitomises the patience and tactical gameplay that you'll need when planning you ship movements and trade routes. If Risk isn't quite your bag then you'd better move onto the next game.
