MOO 1 is a work of genius. The whole game weighs about 5 mega. There are only like 6 or 7 screens in the whole game. But, my god, what they did with that. Nothing is superfluous. The right (or wrong) response in the diplomacy screen can win (or lose) you the game. Spies can turn the tide of battle. Changing your ship designs can turn a losing situation into a winning one.read more You absolutely must play this game to see what tight, focused game design can do. Warning, you will not be able to put it down for a long, long time. What value for 6 bucks! And you get MOO 2 as well! However, I think MOO 1 is the better game, as it is just insanely addicting. Buy it, now.

MOO2 is one of that elite group of games that has been continuously installed on the hard drive of every computer I've ever owned. As a Civilization nut who missed out on the first MOO, discovering MOO2 was just a bit like stumbling over the unannounced sequel to Civ that chronicled what happened after you launched that ship to Alpha Centauri (with apologies to Sid Meier's Alpharead more Centauri, another fantastic sci-fi TBS game). You simply cannot go wrong with this game.
If you like deep strategy in a sci-fi setting, engaging art and a deep research tree, and the ability to tweak every aspect of every one of your vast armada of battleships, this is the game for you. It has a great balance between development and combat, and you can change the game's and your species' settings so that your gameplay experience is perfectly suited to your tastes.
And now I get a treat, too, because I can discover the original MOO as well. I'm excited for it!

I remember both these games in the mid to late 90's and it gave me many hours of enjoyment and is so easy to just pick up and play. You start with a simple colony and colonize the solar system from there on out, but sooner or later you will meet another civilization.
This is one of the things i loved about this game , depending on your research at the time your ships actuallyread more fire different beams/guns !. So instead of the usual one beam that gets more intense , you get different colours and shapes and end up with doomsday like weapons. In number 2 there is a powerful race out to get you and they will at times turn up and at first are not easy to beat , sooner or later you will have to take the fight to them!. This game as i said before is just so easy to pick up and play it's a shame that newer games are not as simple. There is a reason these games won so many awards :)
Oh and did i mention the space creatures?
BUY IT NOW!! YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED !
