Galactic Civilizations 2 (PC)


So I got this game for free from Humble Bundle, because they were giving it away and I like free stuff. I had actually never heard of it before that day but hey it was free. So I got my game and installed it and then decided to see what it was about.

It turns out it is a turn base strategy game in space where you choose a race, or create your own, then build an empire. You can even design your own ships if you want. As you explore space, settle planets and mine asteroids you will meet new species which you can trade with and get to know. Unless you are me then you hit a wrong button and accidentally start what I call intergalactic World War one. See I accidentally declared a war on a species and his friend declared war on me. So I asked my friend for help and they were happy to help. That makes 4 of the 6 races involved….whelp it turns out my friend brought a friend and this pissed off the last race. Yup, 6 for 6.

After a few years of everyone beating the crap out of, well me. Myself and the next closest civilization had very few ships left and everyone else seemed fine it was time to rebuild tho I was listed as a warmonger and taxed extra by the intergalactic community. So let this be a lesson, the graphics are simple yet nice, the sound is ok and the game is fun, but one wrong button can start a huge war. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
