Reviews for Sid Meier's Civilization® V - Double Civilization and Scenario Pack - Spain and Inca

A solid pack, but not worth the price.

This pack adds 2 new Civilizations. It also adds a new scenario.

The Incas are very fun to play as and have great bonuses (such as having no penalties for moving trough hill tiles). Spain is not nearly as good, with bonuses based on natural wonders (which are very luck based.)

The scenario included is a fun bonus, but not really anything special. I really like playing as the Incas, so I do like this pack, but for 7.50 it seems far too pricey. I would recommend getting the pack during a sale or with the gold edition of the game.

I love the Inca.

Very versatile civilization. They can turn a plot of land that many players would scoff at into a hub of science, food, and production.

Spain is more based on luck than anything else. Their unique advantage is based on Natural Wonders, so, unless you are able to conquer several, the UA slot could easily be wasted.

Overall, the Inca are worth the price alone, but Spain and Conquest of the New World scenario are just bonuses.

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.
