Sid Meier's Civilization IV®: Beyond the Sword is the second expansion pack for Civilization IV - the 2005 PC Game of the Year that has become a worldwide hit. The expansion focuses on the time periods after the invention of gunpowder and delivers 11 unique and challenging scenarios created by the development team at Firaxis as well as esteemed members of the Civ Community. Civ IV: Beyond the Sword also includes ten new civilizations, sixteen new leaders, five new wonders, and a variety of new units that offer even more fun and exciting ways for players to expand their civilization's power as they strive for world domination.
  • Expanded Epic Game: Adds a massive increase of new units, buildings, and technologies to the epic game with a tremendous amount of effort focused on the late game.
  • New Game Scenarios: 11 new scenarios custom-designed by the team at Firaxis and some members of the Civ Fan Community.
  • New Civilizations: 10 new civilizations, such as Portugal, Babylonians, and Netherlands and their associated unique units and buildings.
  • More Civilization Leaders: Sixteen new leaders, both for the new civilizations as well as additional leaders for existing civilizations, including Hammurabi of the Babylonians, Abraham Lincoln of the United States, and Sitting Bull of the Native Americans.
  • Corporations: A new game feature similar to religion allows players to found companies and spread them throughout the world. Each corporation provides benefits in exchange for certain resources.
  • Espionage: Now available earlier in the game, this feature offers players many new ways to spy on opponents, stir citizen unrest and defend government secrets.
  • Events: New random events - such as natural disasters and pleas for help or demands from their citizens - challenge players with obstacles that must be overcome for their civilization to prosper.
  • New Wonders: Five new wonders await discovery, including the Statue of Zeus, Cristo Redentor, the Shwedagon Paya, and the Mausoleum of Maussollos.
  • Expanded Space Victory: Winning the race to Alpha Centauri will now require more strategic planning and tactical decision making.
  • Apostolic Palace: The United Nations is available earlier in the game, providing a way to win a diplomatic victory earlier. In addition, new resolutions expand the available diplomatic options.
  • Advanced Starts: A major fan request, this new feature enables players to 'buy' components of a custom-tailored empire and begin play in the later part of the game, allowing one to experience many of the new features of the expansion in a shorter amount of time.
  • Advanced AI: The greatly-enhanced AI now relies more on smart play and less on handicap bonuses to remain competitive, providing a more consistent challenge throughout the course of the game, both economically and militarily. The ways in which the AI attempt to achieve victory have also been expanded.

This game will ruin your little aspie life. Your plants will wither, your pets will starve, and you'll probably get scurvy, and bed sores. Seriously, this is the wizard's glass, and when you look into it, it'll look into you, and find you wanting.

If you've already made the mistake of downloading this game, please contact me for a list of addiction counsling services in your area.

Adds a bunch of new Empires (Native American, Ethiopian, Ottoman,etc.) and new Leaders to existing empires (Churchill, Lincoln, Stalin,etc.) Adds new technologies and playable scenarios. Also adds the Espionage system which is poorly made but still interesting. Would reccomend for any avid Civ 4 player.

Games are long and intense.
Potential for strategy and competition is limitless.
A little overwhelming, but such a grand game is worth the effort to learn the ropes at least a bit.

Dispite time passed in Civilization series part IV remains a game with most options, great immersion and sufficient diversity via mods. Some extra technologies here, which make litte difference for newcomer, but playing vanilla version makes little sence now.

Civ IV: Beyond the Sword is the ultimate version of the now-classic Strategy title.

The game offers a turn-based look at history from the stone age to modern times, as is the case with all Civ games. What sets IV apart from the rest of the series is the sheer depth of the different mechanics that the player must manage to be successful. These include, but are not limited to: Economy, Military, Population, Health, Technology, and Espionage. With all of that work to do across the different eras of human history, it is easy to say that the turns you take in Civ IV will be longer than any other in the series.

How you deal with this fact is up to your personal preference. However, one thing is certain, Civ IV is extremely well streamlined, and even new players will be right at home with the mechanics with a modicum of perseverence. As someone who struggled with Civ III, I had fully grasped the mechanics of Civ IV by my tenth hour of gameplay: easy to learn, hard to master.

Ultimately, I recommend this game wholeheartedly to strategy fans. If you have Civ V, consider this the wise granddaddy of that great game. It is a wholly different and in some ways far more rewarding experience. If you have never played a Civ game before, Civ IV is a deeper choice, though if you are impatient and seek a more casual experience, the excellent Civ V is recommended.

Some of the worst things in human history began with the best intentions. When I lead a once prosperous country of freedom and efficency into the dark days of another world war, I found that things had to change to match the times. A police state with an iron will was formed, and we rode out the storm with enemies falling at our feet through the battles won, and the diplomatic options utilized. Beyond the Sword lets you bring out the tyrant in you.

Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword must be the most complete Civilization to date. In some ways it is superior to its succesor Civilization V.

Advantages of Civ IV BTS:
+AI is much smarter
+AI actually conquers other nations
+Game includes vassal states (capitulate to save yourself)
+Espionage mechanic makes much more sense (accumulate points to view demographics, cities, construction queue etc)
+Larger empires
+More complex mechanics (such as health and individual city happiness)
+Technology trading (can be disabled)

Disadvantages of Civ IV BTW:
-Graphics are worse
-Combat based on "odds" not health. So you can lose a unit with a 95% win chance.
-You have to "call" someone before you can setup a trade.

Ah, Civilization IV:BTS, the game that stole so much of my life. Civ IV is a classic. After some of the frustrations with Civilization III following the majesty of Civ II, IV felt like a return to form for the series. It has a lot in common with III, of course, but it made the game feel epic again. It also resolved some of the awkward controls the series was known for, and added a few intriguing features. In particular, religion, corporations, and civics (borrowed from Alpha Centauri).

What BTS gets right is amazing. There is a lot of depth to the decisions being made, and it can be a complex game if you want it to be. The civic system lets you fine tune your own custom government (a theocratic police state with a free market? Go right ahead!), with the rewards and penalties mixed, like in the classic Civs. The diplomacy is vital to the game, and the AI's opinions of you actually matter, and can be influenced.

Where it gets it wrong tends to be the tedium and the stacking mechanic. Civ III and IV suffer from a design oversight that became a mechanic, called 'stacks of doom" in which not only could an army be overpowered by playing upwards of 30-40 units in one tile, but such play became essential to win. The city attacking and defending mechanics also leave something to be desired, as they are intended for stacks of doom. The gameplay can be tedious compared to Civ V, many turns can pass without anything happening.

But it's also more satisfying when you get to victory in this game. And there are more victory options in Civ IV: BTS than any other Civ game, including early game victories such as religious.

This game was so good in its time that even today the Civ fans are divided between Civ IV and V, with many fans preferring this game over the new version. I do consider it a matter of preference, as I play both.

Last of all, certainly not least, Leonard Nimoy narrates this game in a Leonard Nimoy fashion. It fits the game perfectly.

One of my all time Favorite games - I have countless hours of this game before it came to steam and I have to say that they just plain got it right with this.

If you like it and get a bit bored try the Fall From Heaven 2 mod available at Civfanatics <dotcom>
