New Gamer Nation writes: "When you think about some of the best and far-reaching strategy games out there, most gamers are going to immediately identify with the Civilization series. This series has single-handedly changed the way strategy games worked for years, and after a lengthy hiatus, we finally get a new game from Firaxis. While this isn’t the traditional Civilization set up, it is more-or-less the spiritual successor to 1999’s Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri. In other words, we have a 4x strategy space sim that keeps what you love about Civilization and takes it to places the series has never been. It’s ambitious, it’s different and it’s great."
