Personally, I find this to be the best edition of Civilization yet. After the reintroduction of religion and espionage in Gods and Kings, it became clear to me that this is the definitive game in the Civilization series. The graphics are pretty good for a strategy game, the music is absolutely beautiful, the AI is actually fairly complex, and it's mostly bug-free. Close integration to Steam and the Steam Workshop makes for much easier modding of the game, opening it up to even more content than the Gold Edition will net you. The gameplay is addicting and very enjoyable, with multiple difficulties and leaders available to tailor how you play. Overall, this game will likely give you hundreds of hours of gameplay (with the main game, plus all DLC, expansions, and custom content), and is definitely worth picking up.

This game pack offers not only the base game of Civilization V, but all of the extra expansions, not including Brave New World. The base game itself was pretty large, but the huge additions from the large DLC packaged in with the game adds a lot more functionality. Some extra features added to the game are religion, more civilizations, more maps, more scenarios, naval combat split into melee and ranged, and new city states. That is only a little of the added material provided by all of the dlc bundled into the base game, so in other words you want this pack compared to just getting the normal game. All of the provided additions give you more ways to win and allows for broader play styles. This makes multiplayer much more fun, even more so when you have so many possible choices from what ruler you want to be, making your opponent stay on their toes if you change rulers every game you play with them. It also allows you to try a different play style.
Over all this is one amazing package. There are still some glitches in the AI for the builders and the plane animations are long, but that does not hinder the game play much. I personally don't see too much use in religion, so I stay away from directly attempting to progress it. I let it progress and spread as the game wants it to and focus all efforts on other game aspects. I have never once lost to someone with a strong religion.

This is one great game. Really fun to play by yourself and great to play with friends. Only thing is that this game isn't meant to play with random people. It's meant to play with friends you know. It's amazing when you set up LAN parties though!

This game is one of the most addicting games I have ever played. I had avoided turn based strategy games for a long time until I decided to try this when it was on sale and I honestly don't see why I didn't try it sooner! I always tell myself 'Just one more turn' and it is never the case. Game mechanics are awesome. Graphics are amazingly detailed. The game is just overall amazing.
