Summary

Horizon is a turn-based space strategy game of galactic conquest. It is set in the not-so-distant future where humans have just begun exploring the edges of their solar system. As humanity's leader, you will explore deep space, find new frontiers and discover alien artifacts hidden on long ago abandoned planets. You will also learn more about the galaxy as you come into contact with other species. Ten major alien races are featured; each with their own unique culture, history and schemes. A fully interactive galaxy allows you to navigate open space between stars and planets. Patrol your borders, and when the need arises defend your territory by engaging in ship to ship tactical combat.

This is a shame, as the basics of Horizon work and the new things it does bring to the table are well executed. What the genre's greats manage, however, is a spark that elevates the core systems into a genuinely satisfying sense of galactic conquest. Horizon does occasionally manage a quick flicker of one, but it's far too quickly snuffed out to ignite any passion.

Horizon has some stellar ideas, and a good half of them are executed well. Others could use a bit more work, or a complete redesign. Sins of a Solar Empire remains the gold standard for providing seamless transitions between the big-picture kind of strategy and the tightly controlled movement of individual ships. And while Horizon could have stood to learn some lessons from its forebear, it is still easy to lose yourself in it.od half of them are executed well

Horizon is an extreme example of that category, where a quarter of it is some of the cleverest design turn-based space strategy has seen in years, half of it is fine, and the last quarter is virtually unplayable. With enough patience and forgiveness, there may be a special game in Horizon, but that patience will be tested often.
