The Escapist has posted their review of Galactic Civilizations III: Mercenaries, adn they gave it a 4 out of 5!
"Galactic Civilizations III: Mercenaries compliments the base game's vibe of turn-based grandiose 4x combat. The Bazaar feature adds a level of satisfying power to your faction, but that new strength balances out by making the same store open to your enemies. While the campaign is short, the expansion's new content is enough for those who really enjoy setting up a galactic sandbox and trying to conquer it.
Bottom Line: This expansion for Galactic Civilizations III is a solid gameplay update that introduces the ability to buy merc ships, overall adding to the long war space battles that the base game introduced."
