I think there’s a special place in hell for people who spend 90 hours playing a game only to tell others that it’s not worth playing.
Gal Civ 3's current user review of 74% seems pretty fair to me, and many though not all the negative reviews I've read make fair points in my eyes . I don't understand why the game was released when it was. Beta 6 made a lot of good improvements to the game in a very short space of time but the game still needs a lot of polish. I think Stardock shot themselves in the foot if reviews are so important to them a couple more months of hard work, listening and actually implementing feedback from beta testers and I'm sure that user review would be a lot higher and deserve to be.
Personally I can totally identify with someone who can criticize a game after they have invested a large amount of hours into it, if someone asked me would I recommend Gal Civ 3 which I've put nearly 300 hours into I'd give them a few caveats.
