Imperial Settlers because the player factions have a more unique feel to them because of the faction-specific decks. Also it has more expansions (because of being the older game though).

But really, what you should base the decision is which theme or art style suits you better: Ancient civs or grim future.

I consider 51st State the better game.

Havn't played the Master Set, yet, only bought it yesterday, but I don't think the game has changed too much.

Imperial Settlers is more limited, due to the factions having their own decks and being somewhat forced into specific directions. I think it has to do with that, cannot really put my finger on it, but I did not like Imperial Settlers too much.

Bye
Thanee

P.S. 51st State Master Set includes the two big 51st State expansions (or rather the best parts of them).

I went 51st State as I do not like the art style in Imperial Settlers. Anyone who sees Imperial Settlers but hates the art, consider 51st State if you like the appearance and theme of that one!

Good review for 51st state:

(has some comparison with Imperial Settlers)

Playthrough of 51st state:

For completeness sake - he also reviewed Imperial Settlers:
