    Looks interesting!

    I'm more of a First Person Shooter kind of guy, though, so I don't know if I'll be picking it up any time soon... ;)

    Hmm, by the look of it, it's reminding me of Escape Velocity (which is an excellent, excellent game)...

    Am I thinking along the right lines, or?

    I bought it yesterday. Its a bit daunting, there is a lot of info and the controls feel kinda strange. I wanna keep at it though

    The idea behind the game was to combine a Turn based Strategy game
    like Civilization 4 and mash it with a Real-Time Strategy game like
    StarCraft, AoE, C&C etc... ... and place the game in space...

    the end result? ... its amazing once you spend 2 hours getting to know it.

    but dont take my word on it... check out GameSpots Review

    I haven't actually played the game, but from what I've read, I don't think it's really anything like EV... one reason being that EV focused on you controlling a single character.
