Legends of Pegasus (PC) Review

/ Sep 9th, 2012 No Comments

Legends of Pegasus

Legends of Pegasus is out now for Steam for $39.99, but honestly this is game that may be worth only half that amount. Kalypso tries to copy the success of such games as Sins of the Solar Empire, but in the end we have a game the seemed a tad rushed, even though it’s detailed in the customization options of your ships, I’m not sure it’s going to keep your interests.

The Galaxy is yours

LoP Building your colonies

LoP Building your colonies

For those not too familiar with 4x games (expand, explore, exploit, and exterminate) think of games like Civilization. If you aren’t familiar with that, think Starcraft 2 but on the universal scale. You’re using planets to gather your minerals or resources to help build your colonies and your fleet, but at a more intimate level. You build your colonies, keep your citizens happy, tax them just enough so you are able to have income to expand your army. Then you build factories, repair bays, star-ports and many other structures that make up your bases. Once your have your income going, you can either mass produce your ships or research upgrades to build better ones. Once you’ve decided what you want do you, your tasks are done over the span of turns, so if you want to build a structure, it takes 6 days, or 6 turns. So in theory you have to click end turn 6 times and you have to learn how to multitask at different rate.

Combat

While you spend so much time preparing your moves and tasks and you actually run into some of the enemy A.I prepare to be unimpressed. All your hard work is rewarded with iffy graphics and lackluster explosions and gun fire. The sound kind of makes up for it, but you’ll already check out when you’ve seen a couple of battles take place. It also doesn’t help with some of your ships go suicidal and charge into a group of frigates and garner all their attention and go down faster then you can tell them to turn around.

Ugh Captain they're shooting at us

I Don’t Have the Power

Reports are this game was released to the chagrin of fans with a few bugs, it doesn’t help the game isn’t great to begin with featuring a story that copies others and a combat system that fails to impress. I didn’t run into these glitches though since the recent patch back in August took care of more of them, but that’s never a good thing. The narration and voice-over work was better then expected by when that’s one of the few good sides to a game you have some problems. If your a real fan of 4x games though this game could take up plenty of your time. But forget online, the games are far and few between and it doesn’t make sense to even have it as a feature. The planets you can colonize seem endless, there are 3 different races and 12 factions to deal with, you have the option of teaming up taking down or just wear them out as you control all the planets and corner the market in resources. I can say I am not the most patient gamer and getting involved in action-packed games extend my patients. I couldn’t invest the time needed to enjoy this title. Purist at heart might like it, but even they are saying this one is a dud. We will agree.
