PC Games, March 1997

"That's the best part about Master of Orion II, the sequel to MicroProse's classic turn-based strategy game: It's so gloriously, achingly difficult - and so plain fun, even when you're getting your clock cleaned - that you can't help but come back.

"It's a splendid conflagration of exploration, resource management, diplomacy, research, and war. You start out with a single hospitable planet and technology that amounts to little more than survival skills, and try to become (in the language of The Bonfire of the Vanities) a Master of the Universe."

HomePC, March 1997

"This absorbing space simulation lets you create your own populations and ships, and gives players a chance to interact with each other (the game supports up to eight players on a network or two players across a serial or modem connection) and with the computer-controlled Antarans, who will be defeated only by your brains, patience and strategy."

"In short, Master of Orion II is a fascinating space opera that promises to provide action fans with weeks of out-of-this-world fun."
