Master of Orion Review

Despite some rough edges and frequent moments of boredom, Master of Orion is an engaging reboot of a classic sci-fi strategy title.


Sabouts and I wrap up this Master Of Orion using the 5X Ultimate Balance MOD Let’s Play and discuss the state of the game. Additionally we ‘review’ the 5x Ultimate Balance MOD and make some recommendations to people looking to buy/play this version of Master Of Orion.

My thoughts on Master Of Orion…

As someone that is a HUGE fan of both MOO I and MOO II, when I heard WG had purchased the rights to Master Of Orion I was excited to see what they did with it. As a long time player of Master Of Orion II (I still play it), all I really wanted was a few new bits, a clean interface and upgraded graphics, music and sound. This has mostly been achieved in the newly released Master Of Orion Conquer The Stars!

Blurb from the dev page…

The ascendant spacefaring 4X strategy game returns! A new chapter in the epic Master of Orion saga is poised to once again capture the imaginations of millions of gamers.

I will keep you posted. I am not glorifying this game but I like it a lot.

This “Collectors Edition” comes with Master of Orion 1, 2 and 3 as well.

Star Ruler 2

And yeah, don’t touch Star Ruler 1, it’s really not that great. Not at all. It’s quite bad really.

Master of Orion Review

In this video I discuss some of the pro’s and con’s of the 2016 4X game: Master of Orion. I cover the economy, technology and combat. I compare this game to one of the best 4X games: Stellaris.
