IMG Reviews Civilization V: Babylon & Nebuchadnezzar
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Civilization V: Babylon & Nebuchadnezzar, a civilization pack for the popular Civilization V from Aspyr Media. The Babylonian civ pack features Bowmen, the Wall of Babylon, and a boost to scientific research.

The strategy with this civilization, and it is an early game civ, is to rush writing as a technology. That is where you get the Ingenuity bonus, a Great Scientist. And further Great Scientists at double the normal rate.

That puts one on the course for perhaps a scientific victory. But there are other early items to take advantage of as well. The Bowmen are one of the strongest premodern units around. +2 ranged combat and defense. That adds up, especially when fighting barbarians. And in the premodern world, the AI is thinking more about itself then attacking you all the time, so it will be quite beneficial.

As will the last differentiation for the Babylonians, the Walls of Babylon, which make your cities stronger. Just let those Barbarians come into range and you surely will see them destroyed. There is also a nice graphic to go with erecting walls around your cities.
