Comparing diplomats to pope hats, Brave New World isn't quite as much of a step forward as the Gods and Kings expansion. But the later eras are an entirely new affair, solving some of the game's largest problems in novel and enjoyable ways. Brave New World's additions to the already-excellent Civ V have resulted in the high point of the franchise, and one of history's greatest turn-based strategy experiences.

After a few dozen hours, though, you'll start to notice that it's not that the changes aren't plentiful, it's that they're simply better implemented. All of the mechanics, new and old, work together to make the already amazing game even better. Brave New World might not feel incredibly new or brave, but it's an impressive expansion that any Civilization V fan should enjoy.

The sweeping changes to the Civilization V ruleset are both refreshing and familiar. Each of the updates feels like a logical evolution and are seamlessly integrated with the existing systems. Brave New World feels like Civ V Complete. No Civ fan should miss out on playing Brave New World and newcomers to the series won't be disappointed.
