As a big fan of the whole exploration saga („Exploration", „Colonization", …) this game comes in as the newest take.
It's great to play and the way cities develop with their „circle of influence" is a great take. The earlier stages of the game are quite amazing and fun!
There's three things that make the game quite cumbersome later on, so if you're into the deeper aspects and late-game stuff, maybe this game isn't for you:
- Developing your cities gets very repetitive as your only option is the building queue.
- The hard predefinition of available city lots feels very restrictive quite soon
- Trade routes and fleet management get very cumbersome to manage later in the game
