Celtic Kings, Haegemonia gold edition, Original War

Oooh, spoiled for choice!  They all look good.  At first I wanted to get Haegemonia, but how are the other two?  Anyone played them?

I haven't had time to play any of these games, but they have some with decent reviews.

FWIW - I've never ordered from NWS, but I've heard good things about them.

Heh, that's quite a pack.  I never did play ORB but I was interested.

Haegemonia looks interesting via GOG.com.  Has anyone played it?

I ended up buying it but I've only jumped in for five minutes to check that it works.  It seems to be mission-based, and from what I've read missions can be anything from 30 minutes to three hours.  I literally just moved some ships around for a couple of minutes before quitting, though.  I'll probably play it some tonight and will post more impressions.  Graphics still look nice, and it comes with the Solon Heritage expansion, whatever that is.

If anyone here gets it, check the gog.com support section for instructions on getting higher resolutions to work.
