The Universe Expands

  • Excerpt: When Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords came out, our reviewer was pretty impressed. Given that it was possibly the most in-depth turn based strategy game ever created, and given that it takes place in space which by its very nature is infinite, you end up with a game with endless replay ability. You can see our review of it here .

  • Pros: New additions really change the direction of the gameplay; enhanced graphics; plenty of mods available and a very active user community.
  • Cons: Still very difficult with a steep learning curve; no multiplayer.

  • Excerpt: If you’re reading this review, chances are that you’re already a big fan of the excellent space strategy game Galactic Civilizations II (GC2). After all, Dark Avatar is an expansion for the original GC2. I’m therefore going to assume that you’re already familiar with GC2 and if you’re not I direct you to our GC2 review to see what the game’s all about.

  • Conclusion: If you’re a fan of Dread Lords, then this expansion should absolutely be on your list to pick up as soon as possible. Go download it, I’ll wait… And if you’re just looking into strategy games in general it’s well worth getting the gold package which includes both Dread Lords and Dark Avatar. Hours of very satisfying game play to be had. Now you’ll have to excuse me. My miners are rioting.

  • Conclusion: To conclude, dear friends, this is a rather decent game. There are better out there, however this is solid, and if it's up your alley then you will most likely enjoy it. The graphics and audio are nice, albeit not right up to the minute, though I always give kudos to strategy games that go 3D, it makes me feel like humanity is advancing after all.
