I like the game and had a lot of fun yesterday playing it.  In the extra material in the galactic edition, they talk about how they had a lot of ideas in the design scheme but focused on keeping the gameplay not too complex to keep it more accessible.  I'd love to see a sequel that goes a bit deeper (like if I have two legs I should be able to go faster than someone with one).  If you like Civilization games, real-time strategy games you would probably enjoy it.  This is only speaking from my experience with the first three stages, I'm still in the Tribal stage.
