The year is 1492. To the courts of England, France, and Spain come intrepid explorers, anxious to voyage across the Atlantic in search of a western route to China and the Indies. Will they found a new trade route and uncover untold riches from the Asian shores? Or will they perhaps run aground on undiscovered lands along their way? Will native peoples be receptive to the knowledge and trade prospects presented to them, or will they fight against the invaders of their homeland? What riches, fame, and opportunities await those who brave the unknown waters? What path will you choose? Who will prevail in the struggle for supremacy over this New World?
Spain – Isabella:
Isabella I was the Queen of Castile and Leon for 30 years, and with her husband Ferdinand, laid the groundwork for the consolidation of Spain.
For her role in the Spanish unification, patronage of Columbus' voyages to America, and ending of the Reconquista (Recapturing) of the Iberian Peninsula, Isabella is regarded as one of the most beloved and important monarchs in the Spanish crown.
Inca – Pachacuti: Pachacuti was the ninth ruler of the Kingdom of Cusco, who during his reign expanded the tiny kingdom into an expansive empire - Tawantinsuyu. Pachacuti's Incan Empire stretched from modern-day Chile to Ecuador, including most of Peru, Bolivia, and northern Argentina, and laid the foundation for an even larger Incan Empire to come.
A solid pack, but not worth the price.alexshopping | Sept. 16, 2013 | See all alexshopping's reviews »
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.sequoiasfm97 | June 8, 2013 | See all sequoiasfm97's reviews »
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.
