Closer to Perfection

rhewlett9591 | June 7, 2013 | Review of Sid Meier's Civilization V: Gods & Kings

With this new expansion Civilization 5 really became the game it was supposed to be. While the vanilla release of Civilization 5 was rather dull, Gods and Kings brings elements such as espionage and religion back in to play. These both go quite a way towards making the game a little bit more lively and definitely make the game much more complex than Civ 5 originally was. The espionage system, while fairly simple, adds a bit more subtle aggression to the game. I would love to see them do more with espionage in the future and bring it back to what it was in earlier installments of the game. The religion system is easy to use and adds some fun little perks to the game. While these two systems add an okay amount of fun content to the game, what really sells it for me is the overhaul of game mechanics and the new civilizations. I love having a large variety of Civs to play. I was much more impressed with Civ 5 after this expansion and it definitely has me excited for the next expansion coming out soon.
