Civilization Beyond Earth: First Impression
Hello everybody, Geek Generation here.
I’ve been playing Civilization: Beyond Earth alot lately. When i read about Civilization: Beyond Earth, it was mentioned as spiritual successor of Outpost. I kind of liked Outpost, and i wanted to play a game that allowed me to manage food, oxygen, power, etc., bulldozing tiles and suffering asteroid/lightning storm calamities.
It turns out that the definition of “spiritual successor” is not what i had in mind. Beyond Earth is only remotely related to Outpost. It’s not even Civilization in space. It’s Civilization on another planet. With marines replacing spearmen, primitive aliens replacing barbarians.
If i had known that Beyond Earth had absolutely nothing to do with Outpost and is basically a Civilization on another planet, i won’t have bought it. As it is though, i’ve bought it so i’ll just attempt to get as much value out of it as possible.
Geek Generation out.
