8.0 out of 10
This is an industry-leading area control meets empire engine building game. The draft mechanics to acquire and fight over space are as top notch as anything else on the market and this all blends beautifully with the building of your skyscraper empire. You have a lot to manage but everything comes down to deciding between acquiring the most space versus building it up as wonderfully as you can.
