Today's review on EuroGamer takes a look at the space based real-time strategy game Conquest : Frontier Wars. Here's a little nibble:

    "As Conquest begins, humanity is taking its first faltering steps amongst the stars thanks to the discovery of jump gate technology, but this being a real-time strategy game you just know that things aren't going to go smoothly. Sure enough, a Terran ship strays into the middle of a civil war and gets run over by a big honking alien battleship in pursuit of a rebel leader, at which point all hell breaks loose. You are sent to find out what happened to the missing ship, but before you know it your simple rescue mission has turned into a five way war between humanity and rival factions from two alien races."
