Review on PC4War
9/10 - [Translated from French] A unique 4X game with a gigantic and immersive universe.. Distant Worlds is a small revolution in 4X strategy games.

Review on Eurogamer.dk
9/10 - Finally, a worthy successor to Master of Orion.

Review on Pelit
84/100 - [Print Only] Feels, in a good way, more like Master of Orion 3 than the real MOO3 ever did. It is very interesting, unique take to 4X-genre, very nice to play but needs more bloodthirsty AI opponents. War, not only skirmishes, please.
