Extremely addictive, and it makes CIV 3 complete

Summary: Although I am a long time fan of Sid Meier's games, I was somewhat disappointed with Civ 3 when it came out. However, this expansion pack more than makes up for it. If you've got Civ 3 I highly recommended that you get this, as it adds many more civilizations, scenarios, units, goverments (feudalism and fascism) and building options, and other things that probably should have been in the game in the first place.
Summary: This game has got me back interested interested in the Civ series, after a long year of waiting, the make or break game in the series came out, and it made it. I first got interested in the series when I bought Civ 2. This game was awsome (the best strategy game of the century). It wasn't like anything I had ever seen before, with nearly unliminted and addictive game play, and the coolest scenarios I have ever played. When I heard that Civ 3 was coming out I got excited.
Summary: Greetings: I was pleased greatly with this expansion. It fianlly added some civs that had benn blatantly ignored despite their days of greatness. I am annoyed with this so-called bonus disk that never appeared. It must be totally mythical. It is the best game I ahve evr played in my life, on a computer (except for Alternate Reailty of the late 80s early 90s). At least Civ III, isn't a pushover like Civ II was at deity.
Summary: caose's review is pretty much correct. I'd only add a couple of things, its possible to mod using the editor & allow tribal government in a normal game. Is also possible to add the Austrians (Charles V) to the game. Austria is a hidden civ that comes complete with all the leaderhead files. Unfortunately the editor is hard coded to allow only 32 civs. So in order to add a civ, you need to cut someone. Highly addictive game, especially once you start modding.
Summary: This game was a really expenive game, it was so amazing, i was really turned on, all the action and EVERYTHING! It was like whoa man.. But hey, it was worth it... and I recommend it to all my hommies. See you later guys!
Summary: The new civilizations alone make this worth the price in my mind but add in all the new governments, the new civilization characteristics are all great too. But the new and improved Espionage interface it is worth its weight in gold. The advisor window for cities can now be sorted by any column including what the city is producing is great. And last but not least the Histograph is replaced by a much better interface as well.
Summary: Even though I have never played civ 3 con... it sounds like a good game. I tried to buy this game at a store but they run out,so I have to take my trust into amazon.However I took a look at the game and if your a civ fan then this is the game for you. See ya addicted soon.
Summary: Conquests is definitely what Play the World should have been. I guess that's why Conquests includes PTW (Why is there a bundle deal for buying both? There already is one, it's called CIVILIZATION: CONQUESTS. Anyway, the conquests are great. You can also use the improved editor to make your own conquests! In a conquest, you can completely change the rules, governments, and Tech Tree.
Summary: I am really glad I've gotten Conquers. This is the real expansion for Civilization 3 and not Play the World (which is also included in the CD by the way). It has many new nations, like Mayas or Incas, new Wonders of the World (now the whole 7 wonders, like Zeus statue, are in), new cultural types (seafaring and agricultural), new units and many other things. Remember that you need to have previously installed Civ 3 before playing the game.
