Master of Orion 2: Battle at Antares review

GameSpot: "Players who love strategy games will go nuts for Master of Orion II. Its detailed play options, random encounters, multiplayer options, and customizing capabilities are everything that the hard-core veteran dreams of. Unfortunately, this same complexity of design is more than most beginners will be able to tackle without becoming frustrated and confused."

Computer Gaming World (CGW): "Despite these odd shortcomings, Master of Orion II is still way up there on the list of games I have played this winter, just not as high as I would have thought. It's a great game, but I suspect that once the initial rush is over, I'll be glad I didn't give up my copies of Deadlock or Spaceward Ho. What will keep me MMO'ing long into '97 though, is the fact that it still does some things better than all the rest. So while it may not be all that it could have been, Master of Orion II is more than likely to make you feel like a winner in the space race."
