Its been my experience I'm looking for different things from a game than the critics are (I found Web of Shadows and most of the Activision Spiderman games #*(&$! Brilliant, but I've heard every kind of complaint about them...). Its quite likely that the gameplay in Star Trek is entirely too slow and too common for a shooting game aficionado. I'm not one - I'm much more interested in the story and environment than a revolution in gameplay in a category I don't do all that often (I'm more fussy about fight games, since I play damn near ALL of those that come out Wink). That its much like every other shooter ever doesn't bother me. I'm looking for things like level design that tries to slightly mask that its a linear path rather than a real place. I like a well dressed set and I think that the aforementioned space station and the Vulcan colony world were both well done sci-fi 'places'.

Tastes will vary Smiley.

It's DoA5U and Tekken Tag 2 and/or Revolution myself. Not quite on top of 2D fighters as much as I used to be, but I still remember which button cancels cannons spikes for a killer bee finisher and some of that.

Gamespot's week-long look at Civ: BE

So it seems Domination is also a victory condition that any Affinity can get.
Funny thing, I clicked the video they have about it, which is the announcement trailer, and what ad did I get before it?  Civ: BE's announcement trailer.   Grin

The panel that Civilization: Beyond Earth was announced at.

Includes one of the faction options (Daoming Sochua, Pan-Asian Cooperative) with mention of a second (American Reclamation Corporatocracy, aka "FaceGoogle"), as well as some concept art of some aliens and the Marine progression for the Purity Affinity (Space Marine, basically).

I am very interested in the many many choices that seem to open up for starting the game.
