Galactic Civilizations II is a worthy sequel, improving the franchise significantly in many ways without losing sight of what made it great. We’re impressed with how simple the game has stayed while adding so much depth. Our high opinion of the title is perhaps best reflected in that we could only nitpick a few interface quirks and bugs as our cons.
Galactic Civilizations II: Dread Lords has incredible space-based strategy action, where you fight to defend humanity! The reckless humans have formed an alliance for their mutual defense against the rising power of the evil Drengin Empire. Meanwhile, the Drengins gather an alliance of their own and begin exploring the furthest corners of the galaxy for ancient weapons that may give them the uppher hand. But humans and Drengin alike are about to learn that there's far deadlier things in the universe than each other. Take command of a spacefaring civilization and guide it toward galactic control! All-new map system where players can make strategic use of planets, asteroid fields and other interstellar objects State of the art 3D engine with vastly improved graphics and visual effects than the original
