Colonizing Mars is in our future, but why wait?
Pros: Engrossing beginning keeps the player busy with many buildings and tasks to attend to.
Cons: Once the initial base is set up, the middle part of the game is a slog, and the game expects the player to want to play multiple times!
Bottom Line: Lots of potential and perhaps much better in a year or so of updates; use this in a class about space exploration and the harsh realities of colonization.
