Planetary sci-fi 4X strategy games aren’t released often. Heck, if my memory serves me well you need to go back to 1999 to find the last one, when Firaxis Games released Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri, one of the best sci-fi strategy games of all time, if not the best.
Pandora: First Contact follows on the footsteps of SMAC, and while I think they did a great job so far, I also think they still have a lot of work ahead to reach the level of Firaxis’ sci-fi title. But, they’re definitely on the right track, and their game is already very solid and good fun. But you can know more about Pandora in my review.
So, I thought, “What better way to commemorate the holiday season than with a giveaway”? Well, at least in many parts of the world it is the holiday season. The good folks of Matrix Games and Slitherine agreed in offering 5 games to the SpaceSector’s loyal readership.
So, what do you need to do?
