Tahová strategie z vesmírného prostředí. Až právě na ono prostředí je tato hra do značné míry podobná známější Civilization. Také zde kolonizujete nová území (planety), výzkumem odemykáte nové možnosti, staráte se o ekonomickou a kulturní prosperitu vašeho impéria/republiky/federace/... a vypořádáváte se s ostatními civilizacemi (ať už vojensky, či diplomaticky). V mnoha ohledech GC dokonce Civilization překonává - zmínil bych např. větší diplomatické možnosti (přinejmenším oproti nejnovější Civilization V) a komplexnější výrobu vojenských jednotek. V GC si navrhujete vlastní vesmírné lodě ze součástek, které vyvinete. I jejich vzhled. Úplná paráda. Kromě typů a velikosti obrany a útoku ovlivníte i dohled lodi, její rychlost a další věci. Naopak GC je oproti Civilization chudší na typ políček. Ve vesmíru se kromě prázdných políček setkáte pouze s polem asteroidů, jakýmsi typem boostovacích zdrojů (na které moc často nenarazíte), planetou nebo hvězdou, přičemž se hvězou nejde dělat nic. Na planetách už je situace o něco lepší, nějaká políčka můžou mít boost na určitý typ budov.
Stejně jako v Civilization můžete vyhrát více způsoby - vojensky, diplomaticky, kulturně, technologicky nebo, um, nějakým oddělením duše od těla, či co. Já osobně poslední zmíněný typ vítězství vypínám, protože je značně otravnej, stačí mít po nějakou dobu pod kontrolou jeden z výše zmíněných zdrojů. Co se týče umělé inteligence, ta je na velmi vysoké úrovni. Až tak vysoké, že pozoruje vaše herní strategie a přizpůsobuje se jim. Vážně, s umělou inteligencí si programátoři dali opravdu záležet. A rozhodně vysoká obtížnost vysoké obtížnosti odpovídá. Grafická stránka hry neohromí. Ale přece jen vzhled je to poslední, vo co v tahové strategii jde.

+ dlouhé a zábavné hry
+ výroba vesmírných lodí
+ prostě takhle nějak si představuju tahovou strategii

- absence multiplayeru
- málo různorodé mapy

Na závěr bych chtěl ještě dodat a ocenit, že hra naprosto postrádá jakoukoliv protipirátskou ochranu (a stejně se jedná o úspěšnou herní sérii a brzy bude vycházet třetí díl... mluvim k tobě, Ubisofte!).

Recenzí na tuto strategii jsou na netu spousty, psát další je nošením dříví do lesa, tak zmíním jen pár kladů. Vesmírných, tzv. 4X tahovek, je spousta, všechny mají kolonizování, výzkum, těžbu, diplomacii atd. To co ale vyvyšuje Galactic Civilization II nad běžný průměr je možnost vlastní konstrukce lodí. Nejen volba počtu zbraní, motorů, pancéřování, jako to nabízí například velice podobná série Space Empires V, ale hráč si může stvořit úplně vlastní design lodi, její tvar a tedy i funkci. Designování lodě je podobné, jako si skládáte raketu v Kerbal Space.
Další plus je vynikající správa a možnosti ekonomiky. Náklady neplatíte pouze za správu vesmírných lodí, ale i za většinu postavených budov. Je proto poměrně těžké udržet ekonomiku v kladných číslech, pokud expandujete a stavíte rychleji, než roste vaše ekonomika. Nutí to hráče přemýšlet o něco víc, než v ostatních podobných strategiích a přináší další ekonomický rozměr do hry. Chybí mi tu multiplayer, ale ten má přijít ve třetím pokračování této hry. Na trojku se těším opravdu velice :-)

Apparently I'm not saying anything new about this, since it's so highly rated and regarded already, it seems, but nonethless:

A game that I have played, stopped playing, and come back to playing again many times over the years. I've enjoyed it a lot, and for some reason a big title or two will come out and I'll eventually forget about galactic civ. for a while, and then eventually I'll stumble upon it... always surprised by how much I enjoy playing it, time and again.

It lacks some of the graphical 'bells and whistles' of a Civ-type of turn-based strategy game, but as any player of ck2 knows, what a game lacks in polish can be very much made up for in actual game content and replayability. The depth of galactic civ (and ck2, for that matter) makes civilization look like simplistic child's play (unplayable to me, as a by-product) in comparison.

Distinctive differences/cool elements of the game:

- Skill trees are actually unique to every race.
- fully customizable ships (designing ships became one of my favorite elements of the game early, to my surprise).
- plot/narrative elements that differ game-to-game, making it very replayable.
- Races themselves are fully customizable, adding another layer of replayability and depth to the game's customization.

On the downside, it has many layers of things to control and 'develop,' so to someone coming to this from civ or simpler games of that nature, galactic civ could be daunting, by all means, even overly so. This is a game for a real turn-based strategy-lover, who wants to have a depth of 'control' that might be beyond the average gamer, whoever or whatever that even means...?

I'd say for a strategy-lover (someone who likes games like ck2, europa universalis, etc.) it's a must have regardless of price (I don't think it's more than $20, this far from publication). If you're a civilization/spore lover and you're worried this might go a little too deep and not have the 'sheen' you look for in a game, wait for it to go on sale, as it does every so often, and get it for $5, and give it a shot; Who knows? The developers clearly labored over it with love, and put in a lot of good work in making a very fine game (as I see it).

This is easily one of the most engrossing, deepest and most importantly the most fun strategy game ever made. Easy to lose a day to this one. A must have, especially if you're waiting for the price of GalCiv III to go down!

I can already tell I'm going to sink hours upon hours of my life into this game.
I have never really been big on Civilization games. I just never really enjoyed them. But this is unbelievably fun. Just the feeling of researching so many things to build up the might of your military, the progression and improvement of your research, the approval of you government and the strength of your social skills is overwhelmingly fantastic. And when you become strong enough, invading planets and eradicting other Empires/Civilizations, working your way up from weakest to strongest gives your the feeling that you're powerful beyond belief (even though in real life you wouldn't stand a chance doing all of this).
This game takes a while to understand, but that's what it's meant to be like, I find that to be a plus.
Get this gem. It's a definite 10/10 in my book. Definitely worth the full price, even after all of these years.

Imagine with me, if you will. You are leader of a small but prosperous empire, controlling roughly two dozen small star systems. You and your allies have been at war with the most powerful civilization for years, and you've managed to gain the upper hand. A long and costly war has cost you several star systems and most of your fleet. Finally, they agree to peace. You sign the papers, and begin to focus on internal affairs.

As you check your intelligence briefings, you notice that another empire has been building up their military. Significantly. As it stands, the Yor have four to five times as much firepower as the rest of the nations put together, as well as a much larger population. They begin to greedily prey upon the weaker nations, demanding tribute or conquering them.

You halt all social and military production, and begin pouring all of your resources into your R&D projects, developing weapons and shields specialized to counter the growing threat. One by one, your allied nations fall to swarms of powerful Yor ships.

After the research had advanced sufficiently, you empty your coffers and upgrade your small fleet, and purchase some additional cruisers. You position your fleet on the Terran-Yor border and wait.

Its time. Your destroyers flash across the border, seeking out the numerically superior Yor fleets and engaging them. Terran ships begin to explode, but the Yor are technologically inferior, and they explode faster. War erupts across the galaxy as civilizations pick their sides. A galactic conflagration begins.

Behind your destroyers, fleets of heavily-escorted troop carriers descend onto Yor worlds, crammed with billions of troops. Tens, then hundreds, of billions die as your begin to inch your way towards the Yor homeworlds. Your war machine keeps turning, producing dozens of sophisticated warships.

Eventually, Icos itself falls. You survey your vast empire, won with the blood of countless billions. Your huge fleet dwarfs all others. Your allies are afraid of you. You've positioned fleets on all of your borders, backed up with troop ships.

Then you realize: you've become what you set out to destroy.

This is Galactic Civilizations.
