The Galactic Civilizations series is a great series and the first entry was a great game back then, but it has - contrary to Master of Orion 1 + 2 - become unplayable by todays standards due to a very outdated interface and mechanics which don't make much sense anymore.

Got this game cheap while on sale, for under a quid, so can't grumble that it's rubbish. Very dated, low-brow graphics, and no tutorial rounds to get you involved with the gameplay in an intuitive way. Possibly only of interest to anyone who played it originally, many years ago, and are stuck in nostalgia mode.

Game seems fun but crashes everytime combat starts. Not really possible to play at that point so I guess it goes in the refund bin

I bought this game as a bundle Steam sale deal, I played only a little while, for when there was any ship to ship combat, the game completely froze. I have looked up this problem on forums and the only soution is to turn off any battle animations, which ruins the games excitment a little. The game to me is broken and if your thinking of purchasing...I would not, which is sad, because I really like this style of game

Old clunky and impossible to win, even on easy. And I'm a vetern of the old Master of Orion series so I'm not a noob or whatever.

Interesting game. It's got a bit of a learning curve, and isn't too attractive at first, but it'll grow on you if you like 4x games. That being said, I'd say just buy the sequel, a far better game. Don't buy 3 yet.

Fun past time

While this game is clearly old its still quite a bit of fun. The user interface has a few issues but they are managable. the biggest downside was figuring out how to play the game which for me meant making the AI very dumb …. well below the beginner level ai for a game, figuring out some core mechanics then notching up the challenge after figuring a few things out.

Unfortunately, this is not really a review of the game, so much as a warning that on some modern machines, the game does not work at all. There have been reported problems getting this game to install or run all over the forums, and while I didn't encounter any of the installation problems, even the proposed solutions to getting the game to launch don't work for me.

As such this is a thumbs-down, but mostly as a warning that the game may not work at all for you! "Tested" on 64-bit Windows 7.

THe game play sucked me in. The only issue was some of the auto focus changes but was common for the year it was released. I have not played II or III so I am guessing they learned. I am about to purchase II in hopes they got rid of the more aggrevating behaviors. Overall the game is very playable and well woth the $10 I payed for it.

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!

This was one of the few games I played over and over as a teen.

I'll be honest, I never got into the sequel, because I didn't like the way the planets were depicted (though it probably made influence more intuitive). So I don't know how this one holds up to GalCiv II. But on its own merits, it's a good game.

In Galactic Civilizations, you start out as ruler of united Earth. The various alien races, having gotten the secret of hyperdrive from the humans, have turned off their massive wormhole portals and scrapped them for hyper-capable colony ships. The real space race has begun, and it's up to you to determine the path you want humanity to take.

Madcap conquest is definitely an option, but if that either doesn't sound appealing or isn't practical, you can turn to other means - being a technocrat and staying ahead by selling and leaking techs; buddying up to the top dog; making everyone's economies dependant on your trade; or amass cultural influence by convincing the aliens how awesome Hollywood, Nike and Coca-Cola are. In practice, most games tend to involve a combination of all the above - the alien races tend to be more receptive to your diplomacy if you have a lot of ships with big guns, or if a significant chunk of their economy is powered by trade with you. And being ahead in tech is useful for keeping a welfare economy afloat by selling techs to other empires, or to prop up an enemy of an enemy without going to war directly. Conversely, rolling in dough means being able to bribe your rivals, buy state-of-the-art warships from a militarist friend, and ramp up domestic spending (including research and social projects).

Along the way, you get to decide whether to be an evil empire, a benevolent federation or any combination and variation of them. A sprawling but sparsely populated expansionist nation, or a handful of highly-developed star systems? Military juggernaut or trade linchpin of the galaxy? Underhand arms dealer or open warmonger? Your answer to these questions is often simply "yes". It's telling that a game that allows you to build aphrodisiacs and massive theme parks also give you the option of building propaganda machines and pseudo-Death Stars - often at the same time (who says star-killing not-moons can't have fun water slides?).

The alien civilizations all have distinct personalities - by default some are good, some are neutral, some are evil, but fiddle with their alignment setting at the start of the game and they change accordingly - a civilization that originally extended a friendly hand will now threaten to exterminate you at the slightest excuse, and vice versa. They will gloat when they're winning a war, grovel when they're beaten; extort you when they're much more powerful and don't like you, give you periodic gifts with mincing courtesy when you're the powerhouse.

Though a thoroughly old game by now, this game has plenty of charm and solid mechanics underpinning them. I'm sure nostalgia only affects my verdict -that is still amazingly fun- only a little.

Yes, a mini masters of orion, extremely simplified....i recommend for being a good game, a 6 of 10 game if you know master of orion and a 8 of 10 if you just like strategy....
but then, the most amazing discovery, there is the Galactic CIVS II! Soooo i am heading there =P . 3h of the old one are enough, lets now check the second.


overall a 6 of 10 game, i would buy it on the time of release, nowadays...go for the II.

GalCiv1 was thoroughly enjoyable, and fortunately I managed to pick it up and play through it before getting knee deep in GalCiv2. This is definitely the case where playing through one obsoletes the other, in my opinion... still, the amount of game you get for the 'Ultimate Edition' on Steam sale can't be ignored.

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 Space 4x out of the past.

When you are interested in this game please keep in mind that the engine that is used in this part of the series is quite old. The game was developed in the year 1994, and it can't directly evaluated against MOO1 that apeared one year earlier.

For that age the game still feels quite crisp with the options regarding this game, I still have my old boxed set in my archive and I was quite happy to see the game apear on Steam.

And had to take note, that the Hype that the game caused some time, was really a blown bubble. I was reminded why the game was a weak contemporary of MOO, MOM, CIV and other Games that were the rage at that time.

Furthermore you will have a lot of trouble getting this game started at all! Especially on modern machines, it will run only on my older Notebook with an Windows XP Op, and only with a lot of tweaking to do. Still it does crash regulary and at most unopportune times.

You might of course give it a try, but only when you are experienced in getting games tweaked for running, and you have a rather high frustration threshold.

This said, I really can't recomend the game. Sadly as it is, some games better remain in the past, even though they might still feel fresh and crisp - all this "retro" also digs up some of the real underdogs and rotten tomatoes of that time, because I still do remember the issues we had with the first appearance of the game and the trouble that ships couldn't be customized. You had to buy an add on to do that - later in a more viable option the game had some more stuff added as standard contents.

Addendum: The game will actually run on higher end machines, but not with the Steam overlay active... So it still can be used...
