Are there any other space strategy games like MOO2?

I've already tried the Galciv series, Sins of a Solar Empire, and of course MOO3. Unfortunately none of them satisfied me as much as MOO2 ever did when it came to conquering the galaxy. Are there any other games out there that are just as good?

I understand what you're going through, lol. I was in, and in a way still am in the same situation. MOO2 is one of the greatest games ever no doubt about it but I've had to come to terms with the fact that it may be a while before there's another game in that genre that will ever be so impactful. In the meantime, I play Sins of a Solar Empire(which believe me, give it time it can be really good), GalCiv2(same as Sins), I play Civ4(though not space-related really) and a Civ4 mod that makes the game more like GalCiv2 which is called 'Final Frontier'. Should I find anything I'll keep you posted.

Yup, I'm in the same boat you guys are. I've yet to find anything as good as MOO 2.

Galactic Civilizations II is LIKE MoO2, but nowhere near as good. Space Empires V has as good of a combat system (If you slow it down to x2 or x4), but nowhere near as good anywhere else.
I hate Inuyasha (I can't change my account name)
Bring Lord Sturm back!

Ya, and it's so obvious GalCiv2 ripped off so many of MOO 2s ideas. The robot with the tech updates, the 'GNN' and so many others ...

Nothing touches MOO 2.

MOO 3 was such a let down I am sad I bought it.

Yup it was disgusting.

Moo1 has it's own charm. Sword of the stars feels like Moo1+2 with some complexity removed.
File Not found, would you like me to fake it [Y/N]

I'll look into GalCiv. Is GC2 better than GC1?
