The environment on planet Chiron is not very friendly. Not only do ground tiles need to be terraformed before put to use, but the native lifeforms are not terribly friendly either. Of course the real threats will always come not from beasts but from fellow humans. From technophiles and warmongers to religious zealots and Ludditic environmentalists, you will have enough choices to find your favorite faction.
This is one of the best 4x-TBS games ever produced (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit & eXterminate) and no amount of somewhat dated graphics can reduce its gameplay qualities. The tech-tree is rich, the units well designed and the improvements perfectly balanced. This one of those timeless games that prove how bad an idea Limited Installations truly is!
I must have being looking for years to find the expansion to the original game (Alien Crossfire) at a reasonable price. This bargain-priced package includes both - and it is DRM free!
The bundle I got had the disks dislodged. I'm not sure if that happened during the shipment, but I do wish that stores would check to see if anything is jiggling around inside before they ship something. Luckily the disks were not badly scratched, because they often can get very scratched up this way.
