Age of Wonders
If you stick with it you will be rewarded with an exceptional 4X turned-based strategy experience that you can easily lose hundreds of hours in.
At the time of this post Age of Wonders: Planetfall had a metascore of 81 on Metacritic. Let's take a look at some of the more prominent reviews.
You will hardly find a more elaborate sci-fi 4X turn-based strategy. Functional diplomacy, solid AI and brilliant battles are further supported by a highly modular approach to hero and unit customization.
If you wanted more depth to XCOM’s strategic overworld or more involving combat in Civilization VI, this is the game you’re looking for.
The depth of Planetfall's decision-making, presentation, unique features and overall high quality of polish alone warrant a look.
Age of Wonders: Planetfall brings a new setting, and lots of improvements, to a classical 4X series. The increased complexity can be occasionally overwhelming, but the strategical experience remains top notch.
