"GalCiv2 is often said to be the best 4X game ever made. A bit dated by now but still very good if you can overcome that."

Galactic Civilizations II: Twilight of the Arnor: Im Jahr 2227 wird die Galaxie dank der Manipulationen durch die bösen "Dread Lords" vom Feuer des Krieges verzehrt. Aber die verbleibenden Fraktionen, angeführt von den Menschen, haben einen Plan die Galaxie ein für allemal von den "Dread Lords" zu befreien.

As someone who has never really enjoyed the 4x genre, I've been pleasantly surprised by Galactic Civilizations II. The learning curve isn't too steep, but the game has an obvious depth. The ship creation is a fun little toy that I would liken to Spore's creature creation, but an entire game can be played without using it even once.

This is a well balanced game. It is varried and complicated but not so overwhelming that an average person would feel frustrated. After taking a few obligatory minutes to muddle through activation and learn the mechanics, this game should pose no issues.

Weather you like this game or not, the content matches its price. It is totally fair. This may not be an important feature, but its one that I appreciate!

If you like 4x, this game should be a no-brainer.

A great 4x space strategy game. The only real downside to this game is that it eats up memory for no good reason.

this game isn't bad for a 4x game, i enjoyed playing it quite a bit, but after you learn how to win, it becomes actually fairly easy to win. basically there are certain dominant strategies that take a long time to figure out, but once you've figured them out, you can reliably win every single game, even on the hardest setting. for instance, there is a certain overpowered laser in the 'evil' branch that if you rush you can defeat anyone for the rest of the game with minimal effort. there are also strategies of mass population growth early on leading to mass cash later on. this is kind of unavoidable in a game this complex, but i feel like there should be more varied choices rather than so many specific dominant strategies. still i got 200 hours out of it before i learned enough of those strategies to get bored with teh game, which is more than i can say for most games. the only 4x game i'd consider clearly superior to this game is sid meier's alpha centauri.

Galactic Civilizations is by far one of my favorite games of all time. This game drew me in from the very start with it's immense levels of customization, almost every thing about the game can be changed without the use of mods. Don't like any of the races and factions in the vanilla game? Fine, you can make your own customizing even theit AI behavior. Once you get in the game the universe is open to you will you become a ruthless Imperium of xenophobes or race of pacifists and scientists the chioce is yours. The game really opens up once you meet another race, because that is when the UN of the universe is formed where everything is voted on, though this isystem is sometimes unfair as races with population bonuses will dominate the council forcing their agenda upon the rest of the members, though the choice is yours to leave, but if you do you lose the ability to trade meaning you'll have to new sources of income. The combat in this game is lacking as it is practically non-existent, in this game combat is usually a short scene of your ships engaging your enemies' and in the end revolves on who brought the biggest weapon. In the end though this game still draws me in regularly and keeps me in it for hours at a time and I'd recomend it to anyone who is looking for a good 4X game.

Don't let the old UI or Graphics fool you this game is probably one of the best 4x game there is. I got this game during during the Humble Bundle and was very skeptical about this game at first glance. The first time I played this game I played it for 6 hours straight, it's like the Civilization franchise but in space (No not like Civilization: Beyond Earth kind of space).instead of just one planet. The main reason I got so into this game is probably because I loved Civilization V so much and this game reminded me of it but in a much grander scale. I reccommend 20 times over.


I rate 8/8.

Read lots of positive reviews about this one, and given the high metascore, I thought I'd give it a try. However the game lost all appeal once I realized that the tech progress is completely linear. You are presented with a huge tech tree, lots of different buildings and other improvements, but they're all completely boring. It's just like, +1 armor, +2 armor, +3 armor. 1+ economy, +2 economy, and so forth. NO nonlinearities, NO interesting synergies to be seen whatsoever, but these are what makes 4X games complex and interesting! The game mechanics really lack imagination, which is a problem I see with lots of Stardock titles. With Legendary Heroes, the lack of complex R&D mechanics is mitigated by the roleplaying system which manages to keep the game interesting. In Sins of a Solar Empire, the linear mechanics are fine because it's an action- and speed-oriented RTS title. But GalCiv, that's just as dull as it gets.

Sorry GalCiv fans, but this game is super boring. I love Sid Maier's Civ series, and I've tried a couple of times to get into GalCiv, but it's just too dated, slow, and uninspiring. This is one of those titles where people who like it, like it a lot, and they'll gush about it and give it positive reviews, while the rest of us just shrug our shoulders, go "meh", and really don't see what the big deal is.

The graphics are not only dated, but that's to be expected, I can look past that, I mean I still play a lot of older games. But they're just too simplistic as well, even back in the day this would look crappy. The music and SFX are actually really horrible tho, so bad that it actually stands out lol.

There's a lot of content to the game, by that I mean in game mechanics, the tutorial is VERY large - maybe too large, but there's ZERO in game help, no tips suggesting what to do next or what steps you need to take to accomplish your mission. So you can waste a lot of time building and researching one strategy only to find out you need to take a completely different path /wasteoftime.

If you like this game, good for you, but for new players - there's better options out there, this game is just really, really boring. Pretty bad when even the Civ series seems more exciting than this space aged 4x game. If you want a fun 4x game that's actually exciting and draws you in, go try Endless Space or Sins of a Solar Empire.

This game is tediously boring.

Par for the course of these kinds of games is that you begin with a very small area and number of units, etc. and must find your way to expansion. This is always relatively boring at first, but goes quickly since there is little to do and you can click through turns quickly.

The make or break point for this category of game is how tedious it becomes once significant expansion occurs. Do you have to click on everything in the map to see if anything needs your attention every turn or does the game notify you whenever something important happens? In this area, the game is mediocre. There are notifications when significant events happen, but I still feel the need to check up on every planet periodically to know how things are going.

A huge factor for every game's enjoyability is what aspects come into focus. Every game has good and bad parts. The question is, do the good parts shine and the bad parts fade into the background or do the bad parts constantly nag you until you can't enjoy the good parts anymore? Here the game is mediocre to bad. What you consider good or bad will depend on your gaming preferences and I don't care to take the time to elaborate, but suffice to say I was not impressed with the balance (despite some quite good features).

Another big factor is the interface which is mediocre to bad depending on your adaptability and preferences. It is never good when you spend as much time finding and clicking buttons as you do making real game changing decisions.

A significant factor that made me set this game aside was that the explanations of core game concepts was weak. I read the manual before I played and also went through the tutorials. Yet, as I played, I didn't really feel like I knew what was going on in many important aspects. Some people enjoy figuring out the mystery as they go along. I do for subtle aspects and tricks. I most certainly don't for the basic core concepts (especially when having taken the time to read the manual...).

There are also a handful of other minor points against enjoying this game but I won't bother to elaborate since this is already a long enough review. The important point is that with the huge number of games available for cheap today, this one just isn't worth the (extensive, tedious) time to play.

As I side note, I do not understand at all the number of positive reviews (almost all of which are little more than "YEAH!! AWESOME!! COOL!!! BEST GAME EVAH!!!!!"). I suppose it takes a certain kind of player to enjoy this title. Make sure you are one of them before you buy it.

So I admit I got this game looking for a good modern version of Masters of Orion. I was very disappointed. The game mechanics are so complicated that I have had a very difficult time of figuring them out and even then I do not enjoy them. I'll probably keep playing this game to see if it gets more enjoyable through time and experience so that my money isn't wasted but I am not optimistic about it.

You have to want to play this game. Could not even activate this game without jump through hoops.
Very complicated game. Not worth my time to try to figure it out. If I didn't get it as an extra title in a humble bundle I'd be ♥♥♥♥ed about having spent any amount of money on this thing that pretends to be a game but seems to just be a crappy DRM experiment.

Hardcore Civilization Sim people might like this game but anyone else should run like hell.

Nach dem Start des Spiels muss eine Registrierung bei Stardock erfolgen (1. Abtörner) und nachdem dies passiert ist, wurde ich darauf hingewiesen, daß der CD-Key (ich habe den von Steam angezeigten genutzt) nicht valide ist (2. Abtörner). Jetzt kann man natürlich Foren durchwälzen, Stardock kontaktieren und sich auf eine ausgedehnte Problemlösungssuche begeben, aber auf diesen 3. Abtörner hatte ich dann keine Lust mehr. Wenn ich Geld ausgebe für ein Spiel, dann soll das bitte auch ein No-Brainer sein: Installieren, Spielen. Leider ist das hier nicht der Fall gewesen.

Galactic Civilizations II ist neben Distant Worlds einer meiner absoluten All-Time-Favorites !!!

Die Freiheit, das Spiel auf alle möglichen Arten zu gewinnen, ist einfach fantastisch! Die Lernkurve mag am Anfang steil erscheinen, nach einigen Tutorials und ein paar Spielen auf der leichtesten Stufe geht es aber flüssig von der Hand.

Ich habe zuvor Endless Space, Master of Orion 2, Civ 5 etc etc. gespielt, aber bei Galactic Civilizations II bin ich letztendlich hängen geblieben. Hier gefällt mir die Mischung aus den 4x-Elementen (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, and eXterminate) einfach am besten.

Die Grafik kann man übrigens mit dem HD Patch aufhübschen, damit ist sie auch heute noch sehenswert. Aber Grafik ist bei dieser Art von Spiel (für mich) eher zweitrangig.

Also: Klare Kaufempfehlung für alle 4x-Fans! Und wenn's mal wieder im Sale ist: Sofort zugreifen !
Vor allem, um die Zeit bis zum Erscheinen von Galactic Civilizations III zu überbrücken ;)

P.S.: Nicht von meiner Spielzeit täuschen lassen. Ich hatte zuvor die Non-Steam-Version.
P.P.S.: Ich hatte keinerlei Probleme das Spiel zu aktivieren. Per Steam installiert und fertig.
