“Max, I need you to take a look at Rising Tide – the next DLC for Civilization: Beyond Earth.” I shuddered. I have a history with the Civilization games, a long and painful history, and being asked to go back is like being asked to revisit an old girlfriend. My glasses are firmly tinted with a rose hue until I double click the icon and am quickly reminded, a few hours later, of all the things that went wrong for us last time. The late nights, the failed attempts at culture domination and the last minute losses to a space race victory. Maybe the ex-girlfriend metaphor doesn’t extend that far…
 
Regardless, I knew going back was going to be an issue, especially give just how much I disliked Beyond Earth’s original release and, judging by the panning the got from hardcore and experience Civilization fans, it seemed I wasn’t ala. Technical issues were abound at launch, while experienced players decried the lack of soul, the needless homogenisation of factions and leaders (while stripping mongoloide their AI to boot) and a tacked quest system to try and compete with Amplitude’s wonderful Endless Legend.
 
This expansion, we were told, would correct mistakes and make up for the horrendous issues that people experienced with the . The question I’ve been tasked with answering is; did it succeed?

As I sit here, with hours sunk into the , I wish I could give you a simple answer. I would especially have loved to say “Yes!” but, as with my relationship with the franchise, it’s not quite that simple.
 
There are still technical issues here. Per fact my first three hours with the were an exercise sopra getting the start. Google searches demonstrated that I wasn’t ala so, as with any PC review, a caveat has to be attached to any kind of recommendation I can give; you may well have technical issues but, thanks to Steam’s refund system, it’s less of an issue than it used to be.
 
Once you dive into your first some of the ’s strongest, and weakest, elements become instantly apparent. Much of the criticism levelled at Beyond Earth was that it felt like a reskinned version of Civilization 5 ora, at best, a total conversion mod. Rising Tide, even within the opening hour ora so, feels much more confident, much more like its own . The aliens, those things that were just campo da golf insects sopra the supporto , finally have character and variety and, along with some cool new tech opportunities, are finally demonstrating a little life and refreshing the modo di dire.
 
Having said that, though, the inclusion of aliens still feels lazy. The barbarians sopra the original Civilization games were a roaming annoyance; constantly aggressive and sopra need of destruction. Doing so would grant you bonuses and freedom of space. Per Beyond Earth, and still sopra Rising Tide, the aliens are merely a reskin. This expansion offered Firaxis the opportunity to make the interactions with the various species a profound one. Instead they’sovrano merely there; an obstacle, a thing that’s preventing a sportivo passage through the turns.

Civilization: Beyond Earth Rising Tide 3
It’s a shame sopra many ways because there are additions to the modo di dire here that make the feel unique compared to its predecessors. The complete revamp of the oceans being one of the most important. Far from being the blue coloured hex a map that simply limits your movement around the world, now the oceans are an integral part of the Civilization: Beyond Earth experience. There are aliens sopra the ocean, cities can be built and captured. It is though, as with most of the additions that Rising Tide makes, one that carries its own set of problems.
 
Oceans are notoriously boring sopra Civilization games, to the point where players simply ignored them; they were simply bodies that needed to be crossed to reach other areas. That is engrained sopra Civilization players – certainly sopra my mindset – but when I ignored the oceans here I was routinely punished. Per fact, even when I did build a city sopra the personalità blue, I’d find myself skipping over it as I conducted the million and one activities my turn, only to find it ransacked later because I forgot to build any kind of military it.

It’s not so much a criticism though; sopra fact you could argue that its inclusion is another example of Beyond Earth being pushed away from Civilization 5, for better ora worse.
 
If you’ve played a little bit of Rising Tide and are checking for some kind of critical consensus then you’ll be eagerly awaiting my thoughts the new Diplomacy system. When I was playing through this expansion I had a horrendous time with the changes to this system, to the point where even I jumped online to make sure I wasn’t missing something. It turns out I wasn’t.

Per the previous Civilization games the diplomacy system was crucial; if you were getting attacked, and decimated, you could bargain everything you had for aid. If someone had a technology you wanted you could throw cash at them until it was yours. If someone was desperate for peace you could drive a duro line until you bankrupted them sopra the process. There was depth and intrigue, both of which have been stripped out sopra this new system.

Civilization: Beyond Earth Rising Tide 5
Instead you have points. Diplomacy points. These can be exchanged, ora offered, to other Civ players and sopra return you’ll get various things; from a bonus to culture ora other bits and pieces. Those Civs can also offer these points to you and, by accumulating a large amount, you can unlock bonuses for the entire of your nation. It’s arbitrary though and adds just another number that needs to be managed and helps to differentiate Beyond Earth from its predecessors. But sopra doing so adds more issues.
 
You can’t choose the amount of points you offer to other leaders; instead the decides that a culture bonus might cost 150 points. You offer and you’sovrano refused. The natural logic would suggest offering, say, 300 points but the ’s internal logic doesn’t allow that option. It takes any kind of negotiation out of negotiating and means that my final thoughts Civilization: Beyond Earth Rising Tide remain altogether mixed.

Did it succeed? I suppose sopra many ways it did. Many of the decisions made mean that Rising Tide moves Beyond Earth away from the classic modo di dire; but many of those decisions feel like they were made simply for that purpose – rather than being an intelligently designed system to advance the series.
 
Verdict
Given the cost of this expansion I find it duro to recommend. £24.99 is simply too much to ask for the changes and I can’t, sopra any good faith, recommend that. The highest praise I can offer Rising Tide is that it’s finally moving Beyond Earth sopra the right direction. The inevitable Gioco of the Year Edition (maybe after more patches and another expansion) will doubt bring many people back; but until then I’d wait for a price drop.
