How often do you see a sci-fi 4X game that’s taking place on another planet and it isn’t a warmed up clone of Alpha Centauri? And how often is it set in a post-apocalyptic setting? Because that’s what you can expect in Shadow Empire: Planetary Conquest.
Will we ever stop gaming World War II? Highly unlikely, since only World War III would eclipse it in scope and interest – and it’s generally assumed that we wouldn’t survive it. Thus it still remains at the forefront of gameable conflicts. And that is why we can get the first brand-spanking-new Close Combat title in decades – Close Combat: The Bloody First.
