"Pandora: First Contact is a very solid 4X offering, following many of the conventions of the 4X genre but adding enough of its own touches to make it feel like its own game".

Pandora is focused on colonizing a single planet and dealing with friend, foe, flora and fauna. Fresh, my friends. Fresh indeed.

Review at SteamFirst


4/5 Overall, Pandora: First Contact is a great game. Its definitely something I would recommend to fans of either the turn-based strategy or science fiction genres. If youve been playing Civ. V for a while and need something new to play, or have always wanted to play Civ. V but found history to be a little boring, Pandora: First Contact is the game for you. Proxy Studios did a fine job polishing this gem, now its time to crank it up to warp speed and discover a whole new world in this game.
