I prefer this expansion to the previous one (Civilization 2: Scenarios). This is probably because I am a fan of fantastic literature.
These are not your classic historical scenarios. You will not be trying to recreate Alexander, Caesar, Genghis Khan or any other such history. Instead, you will be traveling more fantastic worlds such as the world of Jules Verne or play the part of an alien invader (my personal favorite of the bunch).
Like any scenario, the lands and goals are fixed so you must plan your strategies accordingly. Play is similar to historical scenarios, but with a nice dash of the fantastic.

Of the three expansions, this is in the middle between fantastic and nothing new. There are some new fantastic concepts put in here, but the interface is the same, which makes it appear like nothing has really been added to the game. I mean there are some interesting stories but I would have wanted more.

I loved this expansion as well as test of time. You're playing different scenarios, like the world of jules verne and such, which add to the difficulty. so if you're more into the replaying historical scenarios, then you won't like it, but give this a try. it's worth the challenge!

Although we loved civilization, we found this add-on difficult to work with. The scenarios weren't clearly layout out. We tried all of the scenarios and didn't find a single one we enjoyed. We've since returned to the original game but never to this supplement. Definitely not worth the money.

When I went to the store, I was looking forward to getting this great add-on for my civ2. When I got home, I was totally disapointed with how the add on worked. It still was pretty good but it wasn't the "AWESOME" game it was advertised as. It still is worth your money but don't get all hyperventalated over it!

This review focuses mainly on the game, not the add-on. This game has room for many strategies, but takes at bare minimum 10 hours to complete. Essentialy, you control a world power in a randomly generated planet. You control diplomacy, city management, government, and much more. There are so many things that must be controlled, and it takes a while to get the hang of it. Each unit, quite unrealistically, takes at least 10 one-year turns to encircle the globe. It's mainly a game of military dominance. The add-on includes several scenarios, with different units, technologies, etc., and a scenario builder. The scenario builder takes a long time and never seems to work. I recommend Civilization 2: Fantastic Worlds for people who enjoy strategy and have a LOT of free time on their hands.
