(scroll a bit down to the second game in the list)
The German boardgame news website Brettspiel-News played a session of Galactic Era, and this is their detailed report on that (in German):
“I had the fortune to play this very outstanding space exploration game. While the tiles look similar to Gaia Project, it is a completely different experience. I really enjoyed that there are multiple tactics to earn points: peaceful exploration, growth and warfare are pretty balanced and there is no dice luck involved. Playing the Avians and starting on a home star sector, which already gave +1 Spirituality I decided to start with an additional Robotics skill point instead. Nonetheless, I lost the game, but only very close. All in all this is a very recommendable masterpiece. ”
