So you’ve decided to conquer the galaxy. Good for you!
Let me start by saying that Galactic Civilizations III: Crusade is the greatest game in human history. Nay, the greatest creation of all the universe. At least, that’s what marketing told me to say (please send help, they’re going to take my thumbs!)
This impressively formatted guide will help you learn a little bit about the game.
Galactic Civilizations is a turn-based game.
It is in the genre of 4X which stands for Explore, Expand, Exploit and Exterminate.
In the hands of the wrong people, it’s about as fun to watch being played as paint drying. And I don’t even mean like fancy, colorful paint but that builder’s grade stuff.
But hopefully, in your hands, it’ll be a sandbox for your imagination (seriously, my thumbs!).
Galactic Civilizations III: Crusade, is an expansion pack. It’s distributed as a measly DLC which, frankly, bugs me a lot. But what are ya going to do?
But really, Crusade is more like GalCiv III.5 or if we still did games at retail, this would probably be GalCiv IV.
