This review is from: Sid Meier's Civilization V: Gods and Kings [Download] (Software Download)
I was missing religion. I can't say I ADORE the way that it was implemented (almost as if it was another resource) but I did enjoy it's return. Also, there are a lot of complexities that flesh out Civ V. I think all the Civ games have kind of had to wait for the expansion that made them a little more playable and Gods and Kings is the expansion for this generation of Civ.

Somehow, though, the game runs significantly slower, even though most of the changes aren't something you would imagine would make the game run slower. There are crashes, too. Yes, they're fixable, but I'm a little tired of beta testing games for developers these days. You'd think I could get a product that would work on my flawless machine, but so often I have to search for fixes, fixes, fixes.

The civs are a little smarter, but not by much. I do enjoy the way espionage changes the way you deal with your neighboring civs. You can steal tech, find out if someone intends to attack you, conspire against other sims with the information you've discovered. Still, you can not-really-win a war and be offered multiple cities for almost nothing.

With G&K Civ5 is richer, deeper, more enjoyable. Still flawed, though.
