It would have fit better if you compared it to Master of Orion 2: Battle at Antares, which was the one that really set the standard. The first game was kind of a horribly unbalanced mess that didn't really play like 4x titles as we know them. Where MoO2 set the standard we all came to know and expect from turn based strategy games.

Edit: I should say that Master of Orion 2 held up a lot better than X-Com: UFO Defense and X-Com: Terror From the Deep ever could have hoped to. It's still one of the most heavily played strategy games to this day, the new remake doesn't hold a candle to MoO2, same as Master of Orion 3 failed to hold up to the standard it's predecessor set.
