Fascinating. Years after original release, this is still splitting critical opinion something rotten.

At Reso we gave this 69%. Shows what we know. :)

An excellent review, Will.

I could see it getting a mediocre score, actually, if the three individual titles (well, one and two expansions) were looked at seperately, but I think this is a case where the whole is greater than the sum of its expansion packs. I fired up vanillia SotS while grabbing the other two and it was a wee bit...well, vanillia. The game really needs those other expansions to give it the kind of depth and diversity, especially with the randomized research system.

Or maybe I'm just an old 4X junkie who wishes people still played MoO. As always, Lewis, thanks for the feedback. :D

Addendum: Do you (or anyone else that happens to be reading) think SotS is "obscure" enough to qualify for the MOTO tourny? It's an industry underdog to be sure but I've no idea how well known (or not) it is.
