You'll buy it because you are a slave

Summary: Bought the original game for the same price, and this expansion certainly is not equivalent in additional features/enjoyment. I suppose this is how it works though. Get 'em hooked on the original game and you can charge whatever you want for additional features and people will pay...
Summary: Its a good game. Make moving time easier when I'm tired of studying. The multiplayer game is pretty bad. If you have too many players it lags, freezes and everything that you can't imagine will also go wrong.
Summary: First of all, yes Gods and Kings does significantly improve the baseline civilization game. I really would not recommend spending any time on Civ V unless you also had the expansion pack. Secondly, it doesn't really fix the main problems with the game.
Summary: I have had Civilization V since it came out, great game and a lot different from Civ IV. I read the reviews for Civ V: Gods and Kings and they made it sound like this expansion changes everything, but it changes nothing.
Summary: Religion is back and I have to say I like the new system. It accentuates your racial differences and allows you to go all out or round out your racial characteristics. Diplomacy is still utterly useless and you still can't trade technology directly which breaks much of what I've liked from past and...
Summary: I loved Civilization from the first game. I even tried Call to Power, but couldn't do it. Civ 5 clearly simplified too much, I must assume they wanted to increase the pontential number of players, but I don't see how the regular Civ 5 could please anyone.
Summary: Full disclosure here: I think Civ 4 is the best Civ game out there. This expansion doesn't change that. The addition of religion was a nifty feature, but only so much. Religion doesn't seem to have much of an impact on diplomacy.
Summary: This expansion is fun. it is exciting. but on the other hand it has a couple glitches that make it very frustrating. Units lose their contextual menus, and say they have finished all their moves, even at the start of a turn.
Summary: I was very excited to get this extension pack for the series, but was soon disappointed as the new additions were not very substantial and the game got very tiring very soon. It is an okay buy if you are a Civ fan, but not a must buy.
