As an opponent, this strategy game is super smart!

Common Sense Media
10 February 2014
  • Summary: Parents need to know that kids will see battle sequences showing laser shots and explosions from a third-person perspective. Larger space battles are shown in a cinematic-style sequence, but the player is an observer and not a participant. The game has plenty of opportunities to learn about economics, government, diplomacy, and trade. The smart artificial intelligence makes the computer a worthy opponent.

  • Excerpt: The Civilisation series has dominated the turn-based strategy scene for over a decade. I spent years of my own life stomping around a virtual globe pretending to be Byzantine and hitting things with sticks.

Galactic Civilizations II: Endless Universe Review

VideoGamer.com
4 August 2007
  • Excerpt: As the nights draw in and the weather gets cold and wet, there's nothing we like better here at VideoGamer.com than to cuddle up with a hot water bottle, a laptop, a duvet and turn-based strategy game, and Galactic Civilizations II: Endless Universe fits the bill perfectly. Endless Universe is not technically a new entry in the Galactic Civilizations pantheon, but instead is a retail release of the Dark Avatar and Twilight of the Arnor standalone expansion packs, which,...

Galactic Civilizations II Review

3 August 2007
  • Excerpt: When you hear the phrase " four X ", what's the first thing that leaps into your mind's eye? Australians loading up a pick-up truck with crates of canned lager until the rear wheels fall off from the sheer weight, or the ruthless rape of the natural world and the extermination of indigenous populations, all in the name of 'civilization'? If it's the former of the two, then I suggest you go to the pub and buy a pint of the old amber nectar.

Galactic Civilizations II: Twilight of the Arnor

Video Game Generation
30 March 2007
  • Excerpt: In 2006, Stardock released a strategy title that flew under the radar of many people. Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords carved its way into strategy gaming’s hierarchy through solid reviews, critical acclaim, and word-of-mouth. The title brought 4X strategy titles (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate) back to an area they’ve wrongfully ignored for far too long: space.

  • Excerpt: If you think you are a pretty good strategist on land, then you might want to try your luck in space. Galactic Civilizations II is probably the most complex empire-building simulation you will ever play. Not only will you control every aspect of your chosen civilization on your home planet, but also your people's destiny on multiple worlds - if you are lucky enough to plant your flag there before anyone else or have the military might to take it from someone else.
