"Very disappointing"
1 stars"

I pre-ordered this game hoping for a upgrade on MoO2 which was near perfect space stratagy sim (imo). If you do buy this make sure you patch it at once, without the patch the AI has as much intelligence as Paris Hilton having a debate with Britney Spears. Oh, and expect to have to micro manage everything , which is a huge pain in the a**. Try Glactic civilisations instead, its what MoO3 should have been like.

"A master peace to stand the test of time"
5 stars"

This is one of the most fun sci-fi games I have EVER played. It is a very different game from the first two games but the added complexity is, as far as I am concerned, a welcome addtion to the game. The graphics are now a little aged, but not so bad as to make it unplayable. It is a very nice game that I keep coming back to and will play a game over a month with a friend or three. This is a must try for any lovers of sci-fi and the Civ series.

Description

In Master of Orion 3, the sequel to one of the best-loved strategy games of all time, players assume the biggest role ever. No longer do players represent mere interplanetary dictators. In Master of Orion 3, players become the controlling force behind an entire galactic civilization. It is not enough to be an able economist or a great captain to succeed; political, administrative, and espionage skills must be applied to craft your civilization's glorious chapter in the Annals of Time and Space.
