  • Don't be fooled by the version number, FreeOrion is FABULOUS already! This is the successor to Master of Orion II that we all wanted. Game plays great: control without micromanagement, strategy galore, TONS of variety, a deep technology tree, and even a little bit of a sense of humor. Its clear that a lot of care and planning went into making the user interface intuitive and usable, and in keeping the flow of the game moving. Turns go quickly, even when your empire gets huge. You'll get a serious case of NextTurn-itis... :-) Came back to version after initially checking it out 0.4.4 about a year ago. The team has made awesome progress. Congratulations to the developers - I can't wait for the next version! Thank you!

  • A great start for what could become a true classic game. Emphasizes thinking and planning rather than the speed of one's reflexes - a nice change for us older folks. ;)

  • This is one of the best games out there, and it is not even out of alpha. The designers put enough complexity in to make it incredible, but they have kept the learning curve at a point where new players can figure out the game in a day or two. They have more features to add as I am sure they will have for years, but right now it is not only playable, but fun. And so, with time, I cannot wait to see how it improves.

  • On ne lâche pas de toute la nuit...

  • The commercial quality made in freeware. I've been following this project for ten years. It's still under work. It's still improving. but however it's not complete, it's still interesting. In five words, it's just G.R.E.A.T.
