I have played Galactic Civ 2 and have enjoyed it. For me, it never became as additive as MOO1 or 2; though I still play it from time to time. I had been looking forward to GC3 but its horrible release state kept me away. As far as to what makes it better than GC2 remains to be seen, and depends on which game you like the most MOO2 or GC2, for me it was MOO2. From what I have been able to ascertain from the forums and articles it is more like MOO2 with the several races, planetary systems and with the Antarian like threat stretch goal being met that will be present as well. It is a complete modernization of MOO2, I could do without the 3D graphics, but if it is going to sell in today’s market to the younger player 3D seems a necessary evil. Unlike MOO2 it will also have a campaign, not necessary really as I like playing the random maps. If they create a simple editor for fans to put together a campaign; I may abandon UBI and Heroes permanently. However there is more than a year before it is projected to be released and a lot both good and bad may happen before then.
