Over dit spel

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.

Taught me really how fun it is to destroy the environment as well as commit needless genocide to get just a little bit ahead.

Pros:
+Fun and deep gameplay, lots of viable strategies and playstyles makes the game very accessible.
+The game is pretty easy to mod, and theres a huge, still living mod community.
+Mods are WAY better than Civ V mods, most mods are huge overhauls that add sci-fi elements, fantasy elements, make the game more "realistic", it's just great.
+Good variety of Civs, each with two traits, two uniques and two starting techs.
Cons
-"Native America" is a Civ, which is really dumb, the leader is Sitting Bull, a chieftain of the Hunkpapa Lakota, his unique unit is a Dog Soldier..a soldier class of the Cheyenne and his building is a Totem pole....which is a religious symbol for Alaskan (I forget which) tribes.
-The "health" system seems like an unneeded secondary lock on how big cities can grow.
-The "happiness" system is generally good, but can lead to some annoying moments.
-Traits aren't all that balanced, "financial" is just so good while "protective" is just so bad.
Full Review
Quite possibly one of the best games I've ever played. Games are long and difficult, leaders are very animated and expressive and the soundtrack is utterly fantastic (Netherlands and Greeces theme are such smoothing tracks). The leader variety is slightly greater than Civ V (but Civ V has more civs with more unique abilities), and each leader has two traits, like Abraham Lincoln is Philosophical and Charismatic while Montezuma is Aggressive and Spiritual, for the most part these traits are fairly balanced, but there are a few expeditions of just play bad traits (Protective is infamously underpowered).

Each Civ also has their two "uniques", unique units and unique buildings, unfortunately I don't really see these often being huge game changers with a few expeditions like Englands Redcoats, Ethipoias Omoro Warriors or Sumerians Ziggurats, this is probably cause the games combat is by far the worse aspect of it, units stack meaning most depth and strategy can be replaced with simply rushing enemies with strong melee units and hope to win, hope you built a lot of archers!

Absolutely incredible game. I recommend looking up "mod mods" to the Rheys and Fall mod included with this expansion. Specifically, check out Europe 600 A.D.

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.

This game makes me actually feel important, and when war comes you will feel like a general in an old war. You'll lose units, make harsh choices over who to train, whether to burn or take over a town, and a lot more. That's just war while there's still the religion, tech, expansion etc. but you'll most likely be put in a war, and that's where Civ 4 is at it's finest in my opinion. If you want to feel like an old leader and pick up the stress, buy this game, but if you don't like that kind of thing then good luck enjoying this.

I got this game alongside the other DLCs and Colonization, and i can truly say i have one-more-turn-itis. It is beyond addictive, and i often find that time just slips past while playing this game. Along with the easy-to-mod capacity, and some of the best listed in the scenarios section, this makes the game an awesome play-through, again, and again, and again. With different nations, and world settings, as well as ways to win, eveyr single play through is different. PLus, with LAN and Wifi conected MP, you can play large Multi-player games against a much more challenging matchup then the AI(whcih, as good as it is, is nothing like a human), and you can play your friends with the Hot-Seat MP, on just one PC.

This is an epic game, and worth a purchase. 11/10

It's a fine game, but gets boring really quickly if un-modded. I don't know about Civ5, but the 4th is surprisingly bland gameplay wise (bts is just a gimmicky add-on). The combat is mindboggling weak, not even to par with ancient Call to Power 2, which I find generally better from Civ4.

Yeah, you have upgraded graphics, leaders that mostly are fine, but the lack of content is - again - surprising, especially in civics and combat aspects. Espionage is a chore, the growth mechanic is irritiating, religions/corporations don't really matter much, technology is boring.

Of course it's fun to play up to the certain point, it's not a bad game, but personally I would rather launch Call to Power 2 once more, which decades ago handled combat better and Civ up to this point can't simply implement obvious improvements offered years ago by CtP2.

Maybe I will try some mods or Colonization, but I'm fed up for the moment.

Three hundred hours gone for the PC gamers yon high
Seven hundred hours gone for Civ III players who moaned
And Nine Hundred for those who played Beyond Earth and wished to die
One life wasted with each download
In the Land of Firaxis where time will fly
One 4X to shape them all, One 4X to rule them
One 4X to outshine them all and with its reviews crush them
In the Land of Firaxis where time will fly

Still playing this after so many years, I could never get into the '1 army per resource' of Civ 5 so stayed with Civ4 which has a vibrant Mod scene.
I highly recommend the civ fanatics website and in particular the caveman to cosmos mod here http://forums.civfanatics.com/forumdisplay.php?f=449
