Warlords isn't as huge an expansion pack as some of the previous Civilization titles have had, but it's the best balanced, most refined expansion pack a Civilization title has ever had, and it carries more than enough new content to justify the purchase price.

I've enjoyed this episode the most, usually playing the Terra map in order to be able to expand first into an unclaimed territory.

The ability to modify the game text by editing XML has been fun -- part of the enjoyment in both Civ II and Civ IV for me has been editing the resources.

On my platform (Win 7/2.8GHz HP home PC/8 MB RAM), the UI alternates between snappy and very slow. After a while (presumably a memory garbage collection) it gets fast again. Using some of the shortcuts like right-click to move makes the slow-down bearable.

No point in getting this as all the functionality of Warlords apart from the scenarios is included in Beyond the Sword. So get that instead. I've only got this because it was included in Civ 4 complete.

Compare what you get with both in the links below.

Warlords might be my least favorite Civ 4 expansion, that being said it is in no way a bad game. It feels to be smaller than the other expansions, even so, if you are just looking for a little bit of extra content for Civ 4 this may be where you want to look.

Dont really have to go in debth of game mechanics to understand whats going on, further more you can just get ahead in technology and kick everyone around in theyr buts. Just in general pretty well done game. There is some thing that i would love to be in it but for me its way way bether then civ v. :)

This one is a classic. I played it soooo many hours (outside steam).
This expansion deals with stuff on the older ages, really adds lots of stuff until the Industrial age. Warlords are very cool features.
It still has some great mods to offer based on everything you could want for...
I really recommend especially for the low price to try it out and see how much Civilization evolved throught the ages... I meant the game lol ;)

Overall Score: 8/10

PS: If you buy the complete edition the version you should use for launcher is the Beyond the Sword one. It has everything...
