Civilization V - Wonders of the Ancient World Scenario Pack


This gives you three new world wonders and a new scenario. I'll get back to you on the scenario, but I can tell you about the three new Ancient era wonders:

* The Temple of Artemis is available with Archery, making it the earliest wonder in the game. It gives a flat 10% growth boost for all of your cities, which for you newbies in the audience is really good, because food = population = everything nice. (It also looks pretty neat.) However, constructing this wonder means you may miss out on some initial expansion opportunity that could have proven almost as advantageous. In other words, this building is pretty much Civ in a nutshell.

* The Statue of Zeus requires Honor policy & Bronze Working, and gives a 15% combat boost to your military units when they're attacking cities. Decent for fighters - although if you're considering building this, you should also consider waiting for someone else to build it and then fighting them for it.

* The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus requires Masonry. This tall, handsome relic tweaks extra gold out of marble & stone resources, and gives you a lump sum of gold every time you expend a Great Person. The former is useful for anyone with those resources, the latter is useful for everybody, especially cultural players. (It also looks really neat.)


Caveat emptor - if someone beats you to any of these, you're going to really feel the pain from the wasted opportunity cost. And on difficulties above King, the AI gets enough starting bonuses to render all three of these risky at best. Still, they're real handy if you can grab them. Recommended for people who somehow didn't get the complete pack.

Fun and mildly frustrating scenario taking place in a historically acurate Middle East setting. This is a must have, the wonders become a necessity in all regular games.

Don't like the scenario but the 3 new wonders are good if you get this in a sale. If you want a interesting start then get this DLC.
