Informazioni sul gioco

Acquista la saga completa di Galactic Civilizations II, che comprende l'acclamato gioco strategico dell'anno per PC Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords, l'espansione Dark Avatar, vincitrice di numerosi premi, e la nuovissima espansione Twilight of the Arnor!

Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords: Galactic Civilizations II è il seguito del capolavoro strategico a turni del 2003 con lo stesso nome. Il giocatore prende il ruolo del comandante di una civiltà spaziale e deve guidare la sua espansione in una galassia ostile. Dovrà bilanciare le capacità economiche, tecnologiche, diplomatiche, culturali e militari della sua gente per costruire alleanze, combattere guerre ed in definitiva dominare la galassia. Il gioco è per giocatore singolo e permette di giocare su mappe galattiche generate casualmente o di intraprendere una lunga campagna che narra la storia di un antico nemico, i Dread Lords.

Galactic Civilizations II: Dark Avatar: L'espansione per Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords, il gioco di strategia di Stardock vincitore di molti premi. Questa espansione non aggiunge solo i contenuti tipici delle espansioni, come nuovi nemici, nuove unità e una nuova campagna, ma espande enormemente le possibilità di gioco di Galactic Civilizations II. Le nuove caratteristiche includono fasce di asteroidi che possono essere sfruttate per acquisire risorse, pianeti unici che richiedono tecnologie speciali per la loro colonizzazione, spie per sabotare e destabilizzare (o per proteggere i tuoi mondi dalla stessa fine), nuove tipologie di trattati diplomatici, un motore di intelligenza artificiale più evoluto, e molto di più!

Galactic Civilizations II: Twilight of the Arnor: Siamo nel 2227 e la guerra sta consumando la galassia a causa delle macchinazioni dei malvagi Dread Lords. Ma le altre civiltà, guidate dagli umani, hanno un piano per sbarazzarsi dei Dread Lords una volta per tutte.

Espandi l'universo di Galactic Civilizations II con le Terror Stars, alberi tecnologici unici per ogni civiltà, editor di mappe, creatori di scenari personalizzati, editor di campagne, nuove classi di astronavi, nuovi miglioramenti planetari, e molto di più!

Caratteristiche principali:

  • Il bellissimo motore grafico 3D dà vita a pianeti, stelle, asteroidi e battaglie spaziali.
  • Crea pezzo per pezzo le tue navi spaziali 3D grazie allo Shipyard.
  • Gioca con una tra le dodici civiltà uniche presenti nel gioco, oppure crea la tua!
  • Molte strade portano alla vittoria: la conquista militare, il dominio culturale, le alleanze politiche, la supremazia tecnologica e l'ascesa.

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.

If you are looking for perfect 4x strategy and you are not very familiar with them, you should start here. GC2 starts fluently with every aspect of game and do not let you be lost in complicated and complex statistics.
Easy to learn, hard to master. Special feature is definitelly designing your own space ships ( Very similar to Kerbal Space ) This game is worth every cent. - Sorry for unclear english :P

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.
