I am new to 4X gaming, but love space themed games with exploration. I don't have a ton of time to put into a game, but I really want to try either this or MOO 2. Both games are over my head, but which will be easier for a 4X noob? Also, which game has a better "exploration" factor? Thanks - Posted a duplicate in the MOO 2 forum.

Well GalCiv2 is basically a newer, upgraded clone of MOO2, but that definitely doesnt mean it's better(everyone has their own opinion of course). MOO2 is a bit more dynamic imo. I really enjoy GC2, but find I can have some really boring games. Doesnt really happen to me in MOO2 as often. MOO2 is complex enough to cover 4X needs, and easy enough to learn that it's fun. It's the the closest to perfect I've ever seen a 4X game get, and if you learn it, youll be a lot more familiar with GC2, which has more features and has a steeper learning curve, due to more features, but also because it's less intuitive.
