Sid Meier's Civilization V: Gods and Kings
I've played Civ since Civ I and while I had high hopes for Civ V and the Gods and Kings expansion, it just misses in a few areas, but is still a lot of fun to play. This expansion adds espionage and religion back into the game, which were missing from the initial Civ V release, and that alone is worth adding Gods and Kings if you have the base game already. The extra Civs are good as well (others are available as free downloads from sites such as Civfanatics.com). The game is addictive, nice to look at and fun, the only place where it misses is in the “AI”.
The computer AI is lacking most noticeably in the military aspects of the game. When attacking a city the computer will oddly ignore strong threatening units and attack weaker ones that don’t offer any real threat. I’ve seen this happen time and again and a winning strategy has been to bring a couple of weaker units along to absorb the computer’s attacks while destroying his army with your stronger units.
The Civ franchise is the only one to never leave my hard drive. These games are the kind that have you playing ‘just one more turn’ until 2am and loving it. My father in law enjoys playing it and my daughter loves it too. I highly recommend Civ games to everyone, though I think I’m still partial to Civ III over the rest.
it was really fun taking over the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Should be awesome
This game should be awesome. I spent countless hours playing Civ V, and wasn't sure if they were coming out with an expansion because of all the DLC. I really hope that the expansion has a different opening sequence. I am tired of hearing, "Welcome back my son, this is a rich and fertile land..." I really really hope that they made it easier to click out of the opening sequence though.
I can't wait!
I cannot wait for this to come out! It is taking religion from civ IV and intertwines it with civ v with the city-states. It is practically a new civ game added into the old one with all the new units, buildings, wonders, diplomacy, scenarios, Civilizations, it is going to create hours of more fun gameplay and allow the development of new strategies and battle tactics! It is the best of civ IV civ v and new stuff added into one amazing game hope it lives up to my expectations.
The first one was freaken awesome. And now they are adding all the good stuff they took out of # 4. Want to pre order but have no money :( The religion and spies are totaly going to make it 100% more fun. Read that the leaders won't hate you for all of etenity. For anyone new definatly get this game. I don't know if oyu have to have 5 all ready but it will be worth the extra price
