Sarah F says "Exploration and progression are what make Sid Meier’s Civilization games so addictive and rewarding to play. The excitement of discovering new areas of the world you didn’t know existed, unearthing ancient ruins, meeting other civilizations, along with the feeling of growing something and expanding and overcoming the odds (take that Ghandi!)…these are what make previous Civilization games so popular and fun. Beyond Earth takes these concepts, mixes them up, adds a couple of new ingredients and throws them onto what is essentially the same game. But the sense of discovery and progression are even more acute here and if you’re a sci fi or strategy fan you’re going to enjoy this."
