If the only aim of Gods and Kings were to recreate the complexity of older Civ games without upsetting the gameplay balance of Civ V, that would be a lofty goal. But Firaxis has gone beyond that: They've added complexity without unbalancing the game and without making Civ V more daunting for newcomers. Firaxis has walked a very unstable tightrope without falling to the ground.

In a day where we seem to get nickel and dimed for every DLC purchase, this is a fully fledged and realized expansion. Those that still play Civilization V will be happy to know that Gods and Kings adds more than just simple unit additions. For instance, the addition of the faith mechanic adds a whole new layer of strategy to an already deep and complex game.

The sum is an expansion that adds a lot of little things that make the game feel a bit nicer and shinier, but culminate into the same overall experience. It simply isn’t enough to warrant its price tag unless you’re a hardcore fan looking for some extras to chew on.
