Civilization V: Gods and Kings

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: 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.

Civilization V: Brave New World

Strategy Informer
30 July 2013
  • Conclusion: This is a better expansion than Gods & Kings, broadly speaking, but it’s also an evolution of foundations laid in that earlier iteration – we suspect some aspects probably wouldn’t work as well without G&K either. Ultimately, it makes Civilization V a much better game, which is the key thing here.

Civilization V – Brave New World Review (PC)

Softpedia
24 July 2013
  • Excerpt: There are 10 new civilizations to play as, each with its own distinct style and focus (I find the Polish incredibly flexible and solid as a first time choice) and mighty France has been re-designed in order to be able to focus on culture-powered victories.
  • Pros: + Trade ideas, + Ideology policies, + Cultural options
  • Cons: - A.I. still has problems with war, - Some interface clutter

  • Excerpt: I wasn’t going to write this review. Well, I had every intention of writing it, but as the due date loomed ever closer I just couldn’t stop playing Sid Meier’s Civilization V: Brave New World.

High Culture | Civilization V: Brave New World Review

New Gamer Nation
18 July 2013
  • Conclusion: Really, Brave New World is a victim of its own series’ success. With all of the improvements that Firaxis has made over the past few years, it’s tough to fill an expansion with perfect additions.
  • Pros: +Superb culture system
  • Cons: -Unrealised diplomacy

  • Excerpt: "Brave" isn't the right word for this last Civ V expansion, but it sure does offer up a lot of smart changes and upgrades.

Civilization V: Brave New World review

GamesRadar
8 July 2013
  • Conclusion: "Keeping, protecting, and maintaining these units adds a new layer of strategy..." "...few nations actually provide changes that create new tactical options." "[World Congress] dramatically improves the late-game..."
  • Pros: New mechanics are well integrated with old ones, Additions help create better mid-game content, Revamped Trade Routes change game for the better
  • Cons: Some new elements can be difficult to understand at first, Late game still isn't as interesting as exploration, Losing a few hundred more hours

Review: Civilization V: Gods and Kings

New Gamer Nation
24 July 2012
  • Conclusion: If you don’t like real-time strategy games or the Civilization series, then Gods and Kings will do nothing to win you over. For anyone else, though, this expansion adds a good deal to an already rich experience.

Civilization 5: Gods and Kings Review

G4
25 June 2012
  • Summary: Civilization V has already had a Game of the Year Edition that contained new map packs and civilizations, but now the game is getting its first full-fledged expansion pack in Gods & Kings. But is it worth it? Read on to find out!
  • Pros: Adds new civilizations, new units, and new mechanics, Religion is implemented much better than in Civ IV, Very fun built-in scenarios, particularly" Empires of the Smoky Skies
  • Cons: Doesn't fix any of the underlying Civ V problems like lag or poor AI
