I'm glad it is back! Best game ever!!

At first I didn't think I'd like it, but now I really like it! I wish the battle renders were a bit longer. And I wish they had a text version of the battle since much of the action gets skipped and i wonder how certain units fared in battle.

They are shutting the game down. Don't waste your time or money. I feel cheated. Find a game you like, and then BAM! no more game.

Great turn based game. The battles are very stunning, though the time it takes the cloud to render the battles is a bit long. Down side, you can only play multi player and you don't actually have any control over the battles. All you can do is watch. All and all its enough to hold your attention for a bit, however once the other player stops making turns your stuck waiting on them. The game stays active between the players until one concedes or just leaves the game all together. So a 2 of 5

One of the Best Games in The Marketplace!

Galactic Reign is definitely one of the best games for Windows RT. It contains addictive game play that keeps you coming back for more, beautiful graphics thanks to cloud rendering of battles, and best of all? Its relatively stable. By which I mean that for the best experience you should have no more than two other background applications running. That said, the game is not without its flaws. Battle footage is often slow to render, especially during peak hours...

What's with the load times?

Playing my first challenge, and once you choose to start, it tales "several minutes" ,as the game puts it, to render the videos to watch the battle. I've been playing this game for 5 minutes and 4 of those minutes were staring at a spinning radar loading screen. Am I missing something?

Enjoyable, lush, deep interesting game!!

Fun strategy game with engrossing graphics, music, effects and UI. The tactics and easy multiplayer matching make for a lot of fun. For the impatient you can easily play multiple games at once.. so no waiting around for a response. Kudos to the artists, developers for making such a polished game. True to spirit of space opera!

Does not appear to run in background

Since it is an app it takes the full screen and when I task to do other things and come back it has not made progress in generating the battle! My screen is high rez 2560x1440. Why do apps have to take up the whole screen? I am a multi-tasker and like to see when programs are ready for me. In my opinion apps for a computer equals fail.

Galactic Reign is a great game. If you like turn-based strategy it's pretty good for a mobile platform. Galactic Reign rocks on a touch screen. It's a bit awkward with a mouse and keyboard. That being said though, Windows 8 was designed for touch. Either way, this game shines on a desktop. Although it shines brighter on a touch screen.
