Critically Sane: "Golden Realms also adds a litany of new units, maps, treasure locations and units. It’s a very good add-on pack. The pack doesn’t make any essential changes to the core game, but does give a bunch of reasons for veteran players to jump back in. Additionally, new players, who were looking for a little bit more “fun” than the core game provided, will appreciate the Halflings and their unique brand of humor. That said, this is definitely targeted at gamers who have already played quite a bit of Age of Wonders III, and those that have will find good reason to spend a whole lot more time with the game."
