Reviews

“The A.I. in this game is capable of some remarkably human-like behavior.”
90/100 – Computer Gaming World

“An understated, thoughtful game that is highly replayable and continually challening - the sort of game that will still be on your hard drive when all the other games you are playing right now are gathering dust on a shelf. ”
90/100 – Computer Games Magazine

“GalCiv is easily the best 4X game right now and the best that we’ll see for years to come.”

I bought this version because I wanted to try it cheap and didn't know if it would be any good. But I was amazed.

Finally a game that can truly match the amazing gameplay and addictiveness of the Sid Meier's: Civilization franchise. Now I regret not buying the package deal of GC1&GC2, becouse I sure will buy the seqeul and am really looking out for part 3.

When your a Civilization junkie like me? You sure should try this game out! You will find yourself finally having something to beat your addiction, just get your self a new one!

A fun game i suggest starting on a easier AI until you have figured out how to paly the game and some of the mechanics as they can be a bit tricky at the start

Any game where you can install a party-palace and a water-park onto each of your fleet of not-death-stars is an awesome game.

A fun game, just like an older civilization turn-based game would be. It includes 8 races which I like the most, so you can interact with them the way you want. Also galactic influence plays a good role here as well.
Sadly, this game has some fouls and doesn't run good on newest OS, so it will be a no for me. You can't play this smoothly. Plus, a Civ V is way better choice and there is also a newer game for the Galactic Civilizations.

This game does not even open. Finding any support for this game also seems impossible.
