Showing 1-10 of 12
Good, but kind of boring

Summary: I'd say it was better than the original with new civilizations, units, wonders, conditions for victory, and city improvements. There are 15 new civilizations each with a special unit. The best thing in my opinion is now in this expansion you can customize your victory conditions, but not for the conquests. My favorite conquest map is the on in Japan where there is a almost constant action. So in conclusion this game is pretty darn good.
Summary: This supplement goes a =long= way to addressing some of my complaints about the original Civilization III. Since Civilization I, this game has always been one of my favorite games to play on the computer, both against the computer and against others. When adding this expansion to Civilization III, Conquests becomes the game for others to beat again when it comes to world building games.
Summary: While maintaining the majority of the original Civilization 3 game, Civilization 3: Conquests adds new civilizations for you to chose from, new wonders to build, new improvements and terrain, and conquests and much more (250 additions by Atari/Firaxis' count). Additionally, if you've never purchased the "Play the World" expansion it's included in this latest pack.
Summary: The Conquests expansion for CIV3 combines all of the features of the unfairly maligned PtW expansion as well as a whole new set of wonders and features specific to this package. The look and feel of the game with the Conquests disk is about the same as the original CIV3, however, there are so many subtle enhancements in the expansion that it would be impossible for me to move backwords and still enjoy the game.
Summary: This is a GREAT expansion pack. Particularly if you skipped "Play The World" (as I did). There's more, more, MORE of everything, and enough interesting gameplay tweaks that it makes Civ 3 feel like a brand new game. What makes it so good? * New tribes to play. Or, perhaps more importantly, new tribes to play against. The Mayans can be a terror. * New tribe attributes. Seafaring! Agricultural!
Summary: A terrible thing happened a while back; I got bored of Civ3! How could this be? A game that can be played in so many different ways. What was missing? Well I think "Conquests" has the answer. It provides above all, realsim. Realism is what I was missing. The novelty of the Zulus building ICBMs was wearing thin and I wanted to take part - Civ-style - in a grand event of history that I knew was REAL.
Summary: When I originally reviewed the Civilization III game it was a lying, cheating, money-stealing demon, this expansion fixes all of that. The game has received some very substantial interface, mechanic, and aesthetic improvements in this newest expansion. The new interface options, like advanced (formerly keyboard only) controls and renaming individual units, have made vast strides in relieving the original interface's crippling minimalism.
Fun, but some major disappoinments, still buy it though!

Summary: This game is fun, but some things are wrong with it. New wonders and city improvements don't appear on the bird'seye view. They have the little pictures on the display and still take affect, but the feeling of seeing them in your city is something needed. Perhaps they can make a patch to fix this. Also no new luxery or strategic resources in the regular game. In scenarios yes, but not in standard play.
Summary: This is a great expanison pack to Civ3, with many new features, including 9 professionally designed "Conquests" (scenarios), which feature many civs and units from history... The only part of this game that I was disapointed in was that there are *some* bugs (errors) in the game... Overall, this is a great game for all gamers...
Summary: I,ve received Civ Conquests from Amazon. Where's the second disc as promised by Atari? My experience with Amazon has always been excellent so I suspect Atari blew it! The game is OK. Will Atari ever make their offer good?
