Galactic Civilizations II: Dark Avatar review

  • The race for extreme colonies
  • Greater flexibility in customizing races
  • The AI is much stronger in most areas
  • The story-based campaign uninteresting
  • Opening planet rush can be exhausting
  • Computer still weak at the trading game

The story-based campaign casts you as the evil, warmongering Drengin, now divided between a traditional slave-taking caste and a genocidal offshoot known as the Korath. The missions are still the usual kill and conquer deals, and so offer less in the way of entertainment than the more open core game.

In the end, the best stories are the ones that you craft as you kick butt across the universe. Dark Avatar makes your space operas even more varied in tone and content than ever before.
