InterestingDumas | April 9, 2011 | Review of Sid Meier's Civilization® V - Double Civilization and Scenario Pack - Spain and Inca
This downloadable content consists of two new civilizations (Spain and Incas) and a new scenario: Conquest of the New World.
Spain is a bit hit or miss. Civilization bonus is based on natural wonders, so if there are 2 or 3 near your starting location you will revive large amount of gold for exploring them. On the other hand if there will be no wonder in the area , you will have no benefits.
Incas are more balanced. Pachacuti’s units receive no penalties for moving trough hilled tiles, furthermore Incas pay no upkeep for improvements built on those tiles and half of the upkeep for improvements on other tiles.
Conquest of the New World begins in 1492 and gives 100 turns for three Old World Civs (France, Spain and England) and New World Civs (Aztecs, Incas and Iroquois)to reach 1000 points.
All in all this DLC might be interesting for Civilization V fans, but for some the price might be a bit to high ,taking into consideration the content of this expansion.
Truly a Role Playing GameDumas | April 8, 2011 | Review of Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition DNS
Deus Ex gives you believable futuristic setting, interesting plot and your own, fully customizable alter ego – JC Denton. As the game progress you can upgrade your skills and acquire new “nano-augmentations” that help you explore and survive in the hostile areas. The maps are really well designed, giving many alternative routes to key locations. It is also rewarding to explore each map, as it might grant you items, experience points or some information that might be helpful or interesting. Those are all strong points of Deus Ex, but the strongest of them is the story. I do not want to spoil it but I can say that it is strongly influenced by conspiracy theories and it will be imprinted in you memory long after you finish the game.
