Very pretty designed interfaces and overall visuals apparently only get me so far, well I guess they are enough to get me to buy a game without knowing it's in a genre I apparently can't get into. Even after the 20-30minutes it took to read all the 'hints' that were popping up every milisecond as the game 'progressed' I felt I was no where, and that nothing was actually happening. The game is SO dense that even when I was allowed to move a ship somewhere I felt I had no options (my fault for not having played 4x games before).
Tips? Are there any small things I should do to check my mindset before re-entering this game so I have a better time? Or is this just not a genre of game I'm going to realistically enjoy.
