Sure, the game wasn't as good as SC2, but if that is the criteria you judge games on, you must not play many.  It was a above average game, but suffered from being in the shadow of SC2, which, to be fair, is a pretty big chip to be on it's metaphorical shoulder.

Some good features
-Some of the races were brilliant (Daktaklakpak, K'tang)
-3D starmap was suprisingly easy to use due to name filter, four different information types, rotation and the fuel spheres
-You really hated Plexor and his Crux, that accent alone is enough to inspire genocide.  You really HATED the guys, which made crushing their empire and anhilliating their flagship even more fun
-3D combat, while useless for actual fighting, looked pretty
-Some of it was hillarious.  e.g.
K'tang - What is the significaments of us being Dolts?
You - Er...  It's short for 'incredibly impressive, big, tough, conquering guy!
K'tang - Hmph.  We were in full awarements of that.  The K'tang are the biggest Dolt's in the quadrant!

It you want to give it a try, the game is up on anyway
