Summary: Parents need to know that Sid Meier's Civilization V: Gods & Kings is an expansion pack to Sid Meier's Civilization V and that a copy of the original game is required in order to play this one.
Conclusion: All of these little changes go a long way to help make the game feel different. It’s still that same great Civ experience, but it adds a lot more and does some smart things to change up the balance.
Excerpt: "An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come." - Victor Hugo Civilization V: Gods & Kings is finally upon us, and as someone who plays Civ5 regularly, I felt its’ impending release last week with the pre-launch update on Steam, which added in Steam Workshop features...
Summary: In comparison to the previous stream of DLC that has come from Firaxis, the Gods & Kings expansion represents a giant leap forward. While others have just extended what the game was already capable of, the expansion creates whole new strategies and ways to play the game.
Pros: • Religion is great, • Espionage is still great, • New Civilizations are a solid improvement
Cons: • Espionage is not as prominent as I would like, • Price might be a little high for new players
Summary: Just in case you finally managed to drag yourself away from your PC and go live a productive life, the good folks at Firaxis have released a new expansion to their superb 2010 strategy game Sid Meier's Civilization V .
Pros: New religion and espionage modules build on the core game in meaningful ways, Plenty of new civs to play and buildings to build, Improved AI, Streamlines rules and removes exploits
Cons: Doesn't include some content from previous expansions
Excerpt: Civilization V: Gods & Kings re-introduces religion and espionage to the game. In addition to some much needed changes to the base game, these two elements greatly enhance the original product.
Pros: Religion and espionage mechanics provide much needed filler to gaps in the original title. Combat feels more engaging as a result of overhaul. Zeppelins.
Cons: AI is still prone to fits of irrational antagonism.
