PC - Windows : Imperium Galactica II: Alliances Details
You can think of Imperium Galactica II as Master of Orion to the tenth power. Everything you remember from the greatest space conquest game in existence is in IG2, and there's much, much more. This variable speed real-time strategy game combines and blends more genres than any other game I can recall. It's a space strategy conquest game, it's a ground-based RTS, a space-based RTS, it's an RPG, it's a city building sim... There's just so much here that it's easy to see why it took four years to put the finishing touches on the game. While the ground-based and space-based combat might not live up to the likes of Red Alert or Homeworld, the combination of the individual elements make for one of the most detailed, in-depth, far reaching space conquest games ever.
IG2 follows the same philosophy of most other conquest games: more people = more money = greater availability to advanced technologies and equipment. Even so, the game isn't just about hoarding the most resources. The game really does do a great job of balancing micro-management with a series of puzzle-like decisions that affect the way the game unfolds. For example, one of your colonies may be in danger of being destroyed by a wayward meteor and you have to figure out a way to save your citizenry before the ill-fated colony is flattened. You may also pick up a fed-up scientist or general from an enemy empire who will help you research faster or strengthen your military forces. These random side-quests really add a lot to the game in terms of creating atmosphere, and are accompanied by some of the best CGI videos I've seen in a game...plus the voice-overs for the videos are actually well acted, something I'm not used to in games.
