In summary, if you like GalCiv3, you will like this expansion.  The primary problem with it is simply the lack of new material.  Other than the Bazaar, this has the feeling of a well-done couple of DLCs.  Not really worth the 20 bucks except for fans of the series.

7.4 / 10.0 - Ancient Space
Dec 4, 2014

A standard space-based RTS.  Short, but also cheap, worth picking up if you are a fan of the genre or are just itching for some old-school RTS action.  Otherwise, you won't miss anything.

If you have wasted great gobs of your life playing Civ 6, or feel like you have figured it out, this is a good expansion to make you rethink a game you thought you knew.

A TBS with a sense of humor doesn't come along every day.  Don't mistake light-hearted for light-headed, however - "Warlock 2: The Exiled" is a solid, if limited, game.  It can provide hours of fun in an attractive package without overwhelming the player with detail.

A good game marred by bugs and lack of documentation. Once it is fixed it should be back on top but it does not justify a higher score.

A worthwhile expansion for fans of the series.  A couple new races and hypergates freshen up a 4X veteran.

Does a good job walking the thin line between economy-sim and RTS.  Gives a good "build it and then knock it down" feeling with varied and colorful units.

The original game is a classic. The "Enhanced Edition" is a near-clone, with some additional content. If you haven't played it before, or would like a deep RPG to put on your tablet, this is a good buy. It is $20 for the Enhanced Edition vs. $10 for the original + mods (some assembly required) – give these guys your money so they can make "Baldur's Gate 3".

Civilization remains the preeminent turn-based strategy game. This iteration has a lot of good ideas and a few flaws in execution. The flaws will be fixed, the good ideas will stay and deepen over time.

Fans of CivBE will want to pick this one up. While nothing groundbreaking has been added, the new features flesh out some gameplay from the original, and add the new frontier of aquatic colonization. Perhaps a little heavy on the micromanagement, the overall pace of the game retains that "one more turn" quality.
