Yeah I got it. Haven't really got in deep yet. Basics are pretty similar to SEIV. I never really played that much, but this one is just awsome! Little expreience I have compells me to rate this as the best game in this genre since MoO2.
That rating depends on personal prefrences. SEV is a lot more complex than MoO2 (offers lots of micromanaging to those who bother). And is a lot more easier to eyes than SEIV.
So it's very much SEIV with new covers.
The space battles may divide people. I think some would prefer tight turn based system. But I like the stoppable real time. Offers enought control for me while really looking like a battle.
It's somewhat buggy, but you can trust it to be patched up pretty soon.
Overall, 5/5 stars.
