Well, I pre-ordered the game like 2 years ago, as soon as it popped up on impulse.
I'm sad to not be satisfied with it. it isn't good, honestly. It doesn't give me the will to play for a while. During the beta i was like "ok, it's not really fun, but it's still a beta, it's gonna be awesome soon or late", but now it's released... I closed the game before it even crashed, unlike most, apparently.
Still, why do i like stardock ? they don't give up. i know i bought a game that's going to be updated for a long time, until the bugs are fixed and the gameplay balanced. and much more.
I will buy the expansions and all. and i really, really hope that in a few months, i can open this game and be amazed.
For now, i go back to Starcraft 2, then i'll go with Civ5.
Good luck guys, the release is only the beginning, not the end.
