Well someone had to put this thread on.
This game is really considered to be the turn based strategy game of the year.
And possibly one of the highest $$$$$ groseing games this year as well.
Ive played it and have to say im impressed with the AI in it. Sadly its currently only single player, but their maybe an expansion with multiplayer ability or patch released in the future.
Other nice features are up to date graphics, and a huge support team for the game.
What i mean in that is that their are regular patches released that actually add new features and sometimes even new technology's rather than just fixing bugs and makeing minor changes. This is similar to what blizzard did with diablo 2 for many years. And the really cool thing is that much of whats in the patches and expansions will and are being based on what improvements their consumers say they'd like to see via posts in their forum.
here is the official galciv2 website.
Go here to read a review on the game.
