I've been playing it for about a week now and I think its a fun game but it can take a LONG time to do a full play through and honestly at several points through the play through I find myself wanting to just restart and try a different starting race. That could be due to me learning as I'm playing and just wanting a fresh start, or just a short attention span; but I honestly think its just a really long game.
One of the better boons for the game is the awesome pause button. Its shortcut is space bar in single player and it demands a click in multiplayer.
That being said the multiplayer for that game is extremely well done. The ease of setting up a game lobby and inviting your friends is as easy as you could imagine, if you are familiar with steam overlay.
I think its worth checking out, most people who play ED dont mind a longer gaming session.

I played Stallaris pretty extensively when it first came out, I conquered half of the galaxy, took out 2 of the fallen empires, and somehow survived the extra galactic threat onslaught. The next 3 play-throughs I didn't have anywhere near that level of success, but the current one is going pretty good. Trying to avoid joining a federation and own about 1/4 of the galaxy as a solo entity. But a fallen empire has decided it wants to run the galaxy and is giving me a run for my money. All in all it's a solid turn based strategy game.
