Better known as Steel Empire in Europe, in which it sold better than the US incarnation, Cyber Empire is a fun sci-fi strategy game that combines furious tactical combat and grand strategic planning into one highly enjoyable game.

In a nice twist to standard conquer-the-universe gameplay, Cyber Empire eschews the tedious micromanagement commonly found in other games, and focuses instead on fun, action-oriented ship-to-ship combat, ship design, and an overall fast pace of gameplay. Master of Orion this ain't, but it is nonetheless striking its own territory with attractive graphics and high playability. Perfect for anyone who tires of managing hundreds of planets in MOO and want to try their luck with a faster-pace strategy game with a dash of action. Thumbs up!
