Civilization V Gods and Kings is a game that comes with a lot of depth. The game has advanced in many areas in this latest expansion of Civilization V. People enjoy this game because of its depth and strategic aspect. Like in Civilization games of the past, Gods and Kings is a game that is based on strategy and thinking. Something that you can never do enough of.

What Is New For The Sid Meier's Civilization V Gods and Kings PC Game?

With this latest installment, you will see that religions have been incorporated into the game. Religion will play a major role in this game. You can choose from some of the world's major religions, but if that is not appealing, then you can create your own religion. Now you might be thinking, what is the point? Well, each religion is going have its own distinct benefits to your civilization. You will also convert rivals to your religion. What is interesting about this game is that people who you share the same religion with will tend to be friendlier towards you. However, you are likely to clash with those with differing religions.

Another major advancement that helps to make the game series more interesting is espionage. In previous titles, espionage was a part of the game, but you will find that it is a major part of the gameplay in this latest installment. In fact, it is vital to your diplomacy with other countries, but if your spies get caught, then it can cause a war or worse--they can be interrogated and start revealing secrets about your civilization.

New Units And Structures

You will find that new units and structures have been created in the latest game. It is also more engaging than games of the past. The one thing that you might notice for the first time in a Civilization game is that the units do not necessarily follow history. Nonetheless, you can tell that a lot of effort was put into this game to give it a depth that few other titles can compete with.

The great thing about this game is that you have potentially infinite scenarios that could play out, which means that the chances for re-playability are high.

The Fatal Flaw Of The Sid Meier's Civilization V Gods and Kings PC Game

The game is great in almost every respect-except one. The one downside of the latest expansion is that the AI of the computers is excessively low. A good example of this would be like how a computer can throw everything they have at you, weaken themselves to the point of certain death and then ask you for gold as tribute. It makes no sense, and that is only one example of how bad the AI is.

Nonetheless, Civilization V Gods and Kings is a game that has a lot of depth to it. You will find yourself enjoying this game despite the bad AI because there are still many positives to this game. If you always wanted to create your own civilization, then you cannot afford to miss this game.
