It is science fiction and strategic war game. Graphics used in the game is very impressive and sound effect will take you out of the world.

Todays space strategy games get way too compicated by resource managment and other annoying details. MOO has very easy resource managment which lets you concentrate on other strategies. Most games today have resource trees, in this game you can pour all your research into weapons or you can research multiple items at the same time, or steal tech from another race! The thing I really love about this game is how even if you fall behind in tech research you can still defeat your enemy by building a giant fleet made of small fighters loaded with cheap missles. You never feel like you need to start over if something goes wrong, you can always get over it. There are just so many options! The best turn based strategy game I have ever played, bar none.
This game is outstanding, it has massive replayability, and blows other strategy games of its time out of the water. It is complex enough, but not so much to where it makes the game a pain to play. The selection of races and the specialties of each races makes it a challenge to play with each (sillicoids aside) race. Just my thoughts, thanks for playing =]
