  1. Possibly the thing that most amazes me about this title is the fact that rather than unbalance the original, as expansions are infamous for doing, it levels the playing field. Civilization III is a totally rejuvinated game with Conquests installed. [Jan 2004, p.155]
  2. Firaxis not only added a pair of high-difficulty levels, but also clearly improved the A.I. [Apr 2004, p.88]
  3. The tactical level of this game is brilliant and the strategic significance of many of the Conquests scenarios really up the ante in terms of involvement and fun.
  4. 85
    This expansion is everything "Play The World" should've been and will breathe a whole new life into your Civ experience.
  5. 85
    Rather than trying to remake the entire game, the team has instead presented us with several "slices" of history (the slice being the basic unit of history) that use the same concepts as the main game but offer plenty of new toys, techs and trials.
  6. The Firaxis tweak-stick has hit the main campaign big-time and if you're a veteran returning to Civ III, you'll find the main game more finely tuned and balanced than ever before. [PC Zone]
  7. What makes each Conquests scenario so compelling is that it demands a unique strategy. [Feb 2004, p.75]
