and most divided state.

fleet will be promoted in the ranks, gain experience and become more valuable

"...because the game hiding behind that clunker of a name is actually pretty
"Hegemonia uses beautiful visuals, a detailed plot
beginning with a 22nd Century human civil war between Earth and Mars,
action-heavy tactical combat, and the ability to build a 4X space empire a la
Master of Orion to create a sci-fi opus of sorts. Although there are some
problems in regard to the interface and mission design, these issues don't get
in the way too much."
"What's most outstanding about Hegemonia is its appearance. Digital Reality
has created a graphical engine that perfectly suits this space opera, capturing
vast outer space vistas in a cinematic fashion. Planets, suns, nebulae, and the
background starfield all look like the latest pics from NASA's Hubble
"...If you've got enough patience to get used to the kinks in the interface
and the sometimes dense mission design, you'll get a great deal of
entertainment out of this one, both online and off."
