A grab bag of game systems to bring new life to Civ V. Definitely worthwhile, and almost certainly holier than...

It’s been a while since I played Civilization, except on my iPad, but it’s one of my favourite 'comfort' games – the games I turn to when I need a little break from the world. So I was keen to take a look at the new expansion pack, Gods and Kings.Gods...

Civilization V: Gods & Kings re-introduces religion and espionage to the game. In addition to some much needed changes to the base game, these two elements greatly enhance the original...

Sid Meier’s Civilization or Civ as it’s called by fans of the series has been around since 1991, when Sid Meier took what he had done successfully with Pirates! in 1987 and Railroad Tycoon in 1990 and made the first Civilization game. Surprisingly,...

I do believe I could talk about both Gods & Kings and Civilization V as a whole for hours on end, but I'm getting word from my subconscious that I should shut up, wrap things up, and go play the game. So let's do that. When I first learned of this...

Civilization is, as most everyone knows, the most popular 4X game in existence. I have a problem, however. You see, in a 4X world I am a 3X player. Exploration, expansion, and to a lesser degree extermination all come fairly naturally to my play style....

Civilization has always had a special place in my heart. As a turn-based 4X strategy game, it is the antithesis of damn-near everything in the shooter-saturated landscape that is the modern game market. When it was initially released in 2010,...

For Civilization games and their ilk, expansions are tough to pull off. Since the games are basically sandboxes and usually don't have a pre-set story, there isn't an easy way to add new content. Most of their "expansions" end up being just tweaks,...

It's not easy to add entirely new mechanics to a carefully-crafted strategy game like Civilization V. Gods & Kings takes two elements that were specifically excluded from Civ V, religion and espionage, and introduces them to a game that was engineered...

Civilization V puts history into perspective, all within its beautifully encapsulated experience. It perfectly captures the glee of discovering a new world, and the horrors of finding it already settled. It replicates the paranoia of being surrounded...

By Strategy Informer on 80

It’s good to see an old fashioned PC expansion again. Whilst I’d be the first to admit that digital distribution has done wonders for post-release content and PC gaming in general, there’s certainly a nice sense of nostalgia from getting a big, beefy...

With each new installment of the Civilization series we can make a long list of everything we miss from the previous game. It's a trend going back as far as Civ II, which is definitely where the game peaked in terms of complexity. The more modern...

Спустя полтора года после выхода Sid Meier's Civilization 5 студия Firaxis Games выпустила большое дополнение, добавляющее в игру религию и шпионаж – институты, которых в пятой части явно не хватало. Посмотрим же, что получилось у творцов...

International Review By Looki.de on 83

von Nils-Marten Hitzfeld Wer hat ernsthaft geglaubt, dass die langersehnte Erweiterung zu Civilization V kein gute Wertung erhält? Relgion und Spionage gliedern sich so selbstverständlich in das Spielprinzip ein, dass man bisweilen vergisst, eine...

International Review By Level 7 on 80

Sid Meiers Civilization-serie är spelserien där du skriver om och ändrar på världshistorien som vi är vana vid. Där Aztekerna för kärnvapenkrig med drömmar om världsherravälde. Där Hiawathas indianstammar överskuggar Washingtons muskötmän med enorma...
