Civilization V

destructoid.com
2 September 2013
  • Summary: In any medium, it’s an almost insurmountable challenge to produce a product that stands the test of time. The majority of bands fade into obscurity, movies are forgotten in the wake of the latest pretty face, and all but the most iconic artists and authors get lost in the shuffle of the staggering volume of options the information age has provided us.

Civilization V: Brave New World

destructoid.com
2 September 2013
  • Summary: When Civilization V launched a few years back, a lot of die-hard fans were disappointed with the lack of depth the game had to offer. The graphics were sharp, the interface was clean and intuitive, and the overall gameplay was very nice -- but it was missing some key mechanics introduced with expansions to Civilization IV . Brave New World , the latest expansion for Civ V , brings in a massive amount of depth to the game with simple mechanics used in brilliant ways.

Civilization V: Brave New World

Game Over Online
1 August 2013
  • Excerpt: The end game of Civilization games (all of them) has always been their biggest weakness. From the ancient and classical era, when everyone is still exploring and expanding, to the medieval and renaissance era, when alliances, religions and border wars wax and wane, the first half of any Civilization V game is always addictive. By like clockwork, right around the middle of the industrial era, the fun seems to tighten, only leaking out in dribs and drabs.

Sid Meier’s Civilization V: Brave New World – PC Game Review

Armchair General
30 July 2013
  • Conclusion: For those who didn’t buy Gods & Kings this latest release is still worth considering, and could be a way to get those “must have” elements from that previous expansion. It adds the game mechanics of G&K including religion and espionage as well as the improved combat mechanics. However, other than Ethiopia, BNW doesn’t include those civilizations that were part of the G&K expansion—a pity if you like playing as Byzantine or Carthage.
  • Pros: Adds cultural victories to Civ V , plus more wonders, nine new playable powers, plus a new Scramble for Africa scenario
  • Cons: Reuses old art in a bad way.

Sid Meier's Civilization V: Brave New World (PC) Review

  • Summary: Even with the warts with the game, is a good expansion to the overall Civilization 5 universe. It adds some fun twists to the established formula, the new systems are deep, and the Shoshone are great. If you have any interest in Civilization 5 at all, this is a must buy.

Civilization V: Brave New World (PC) - Review

VGChartz
14 July 2013
  • Excerpt: Few developers can beat Firaxis in terms of post-release support. Last year saw the release of Gods & Kings , Civilization V’s first major expansion, and this year the game’s second and final expansion, Brave New World has been released. Like Gods & Kings , this is no quick cash-in: it really does revamp even the core gameplay, as well as adding in nine new civilizations spanning the globe, from the Shoshone of North America to the Indonesian empire in the Far East.

  • Conclusion: The last few herbs and spices that Civ V’s epic stew was missing. A recipe for hundreds of hours more delicious turn-based strategy.

Sid Meier's Civilization V: Brave New World

IGN
8 July 2013
  • Conclusion: This is the most fun I’ve had with Civilization since Civ IV, and the best late-game since Civ II. Brave New World is the rare case of a title delivering exactly what it promises.
  • Pros: Great new mechanics and features, Much greater diversity in play styles, Exciting endgame
  • Cons: Chugging performance, AI needs to vote smarter at World Congress
