Well written. Does a amazing job explaining techincal scientific concepts to a famous audience. In typical Asimov style, the presentation is a bit arrogant in its dismisal of a poible spiritual component to the development of the physical universe and intellignet civilizations.
I loved this book. I found it simple to read and digest the information, but that may be because I have a particular passion for the topic matter. The author wrote in a very informative and instructional method without talking down to his readers. I would heartily recommend the book.
Solid content, perfect organization, but waaaaay over-priced for a textbook with too few maps and illustrations, and no supporting Web content. Very dry for lower-level undergrads. I want that there were alternatives texts that covered this same restricted theme of the emergence of the earliest civilizations around the world.
We used this book as the textbook for Origins Of Civilizations (anthropology course). Well written; very clear and quite readable. I downgraded the book to #3 stars because of the absolutely inadequate maps and illustrations. A major distraction from understanding the text: maps were too little and in black and white - so that detail was difficult to appreciate. With the varied availability of graphics in today's print media, this is a major aphs, timelines and photographs have the same criticism as they were very difficult to interpret and correlate with the printed is is a major issue and negative.
Asimov gives an optimistic photo for future though humanity is still its own worst enemy. Judging from the speed of progress in the latest four decades, two hundred years seems too soon to achieve his hopeful want of "free world".Good read; related in tone to his fiction books and quite fun as well.
the book is great, it puts into words the difficulty behind finding life out there while staying real to no guessing just sience facts.I would recommend that you should read about drakes equation: ( will place the book in a amazing te: dont expect a novel, its not this one, this is a book about facts and physics.
Isaac Asimov embarks on a step by step about what are the chances of smart species existing in the universe by using known facts, equations, theoretical assumptions, and a small bit of ep in mind he wrote this 25 years scientists have discovered "earth-like" planets as he predicted. Maybe in another 25 years we will finally search a "message" or other signs of an smart species out there.
Although this book was written some time ago, it does indeed cover all of the bases similar to the chance of extraterrestrial smart life. While this is a fascinating topic to me - I realize that I need to read no more on this topic, Asimov has thoroughly educated me.
I love it!!! But for the other android games like Europe or even this one can you place civilizations like the medieval scenarios like the Huns and the Byzantines that sort of thing but over Lal I love this one so much!!!! This is worth the pay I will obtain all your games!!!! Armenia please place armenia please
I have no idea why you have a Europe scenario where its just random European countries placed on the map. Its just plain stupid. You should replace it with a French and Indian battle scenario or fill in the other colonial ones. Plus shouldn't Spains capital be in the Caribbean and not Panama?
would love to play this android game as i previously had the original on my old phone but my pixel 2 seems to have issues with them now. every time i test to begin a android game it is laggy, choppy, and slow beyond belief and I cannot play it. hopefully you see this as i would like to continue supporting your games!
Love this android game cant wait for the age of civilization 2 I hope the alliance and vassels thing gets fixed I noticed my allies turn on me as do my pact (ex: my vasseled countries act like there attacking my providenses And with allies they turn from allies --> pact --> opponents Idk if this just a feature or a glitch
It's an outstanding game. My only complaints are: 1. Alliances are buggy, especially when my allies have vassal states. 2. Not every nation is playable in the "Random Game". Some are missing, like the German Empire. Overall, I absolutely love the game. I would like to see completely custom scenarios though, where we can choose out of every nation, and choose where the borders are, where the capitals are, etc. Thanks for making such a great game.
Loved it amazing game, no buying crystals or anything just the cost of the game, worth every penny! It's like Rome/C&C/Risk/Sid Meier's civilzations. Best part for me No ads or other people raiding your items when your not on. It saves when you exit and you begin were you left off.
The android game is lacking any twist. The resources are just a number. Maps are very huge and the video test easily becomes repetitive. Winning tactic involves always recruiting everything from near and a bit further. No variation. Poorly balanced. Confusing turn based mechanics especially when some nearby regions have zero, some heavy numbers of troops, from a lot of nations. You end up accidentally attacking allies etc. The android game feels immature and becomes tedious after a few games.
I love this android game so much and it is solid ! However I noticed when I play, other civilizations doesnt form an alliance. So it always ends up my alliance versus the globe which gets boring with time. I also have a suggestion, maybe let players to swap lands with friendly and netural civilizations.
An perfect game. Well worth the money, I've been playing it for over 2 years now and am still hooked. Emensley gratifying conquering the globe over and over again in entirely fresh ways. Enemies are surprisingly intelligent and astute and pose a true challenge. Love to see more map iterations other than Kepler and modern day globe but then again those two have kept me busy for years so who am I to complain.
I play this android game the most out of all other android games on my phone when I'm not on my Xbox or I'm out. Ive always loved tactic android games like civilization revolution on xbox, risk and a lot of other titles. This android game is insanely well created and I highly recommend it you can spend hours having fun making alliances creating vassals and taking over the world. My favorite method to play is to test and bring the whole globe under one alliance it's really hard but it adds a cool spin to the gane compared to simply taking over. 5/5
This android game is amazing in the first month or so of play. The upgrades occur frequently and there is a quick pace giving a sense of progress and accomplishment. However, the stuff needed to make batter the legendary commanders (stars and statues) drop so infrequently, you can't progress them in any meaningful way. This takes away a lot of the fun that was experienced early on in the game. I think the developer has the formula wrong here. The sense of progress gives incentive to buy in android game stuff to create even more progress. The realization of futility in obtaining such ultra rare stuff leads to no purchasing of in-game items, because why bother?
Amazing android game well thought out. Lots of content... Can't wait to see what's in shop for the future. Edit: The endgame feels incomplete. The lost temple is prohibitly powerful and seems like there isn't a point after capturing it. Older kingdoms are emptying at an alarming rate. Play it, its great, but don't spend. A android game lasts for about 60 to 80 day.
Very Addictive android game with loads of fun. Just a point some huge players for instance Level 25 players single handedly destroy entire alliances. There should be a level playing field, like a level 25 player can hit a level 20 player and above only. Else 4 or 5 guys destroy the efforts of dozens of players. Other wise its a amazing android game
Servers are emptying out because the devs cater to huge spenders. The servers are also being hacked so it's pointless to even test to war because the lag is so poor that there is nothing you can do, not to even mention constantly getting kicked when trying to fight. The concept and graphics are really amazing (think Android game of War) but the android game is based solely on spending cash and without spending your wasting your time.
Everything is excellent except the GEETEST verification done in the middle of the game. I already passed the test, but it is asking each and every time making the overall gaming experience really bad. Graphics, plot and execution of android game except the verification is excellent... Thinking of uninstalling since GEETEST doesn't allow me continue. Thank you Lilith android games and especially GEETEST for your help and help.
Amazing game, but it's really annoying that I have to verify my acc everytime I close and begin the game. And now it keeps telling me that there is some kind of error and i cant access the android game because of the verification process. It's a amazing android game and I'm very invested, please fix this. Thank you.
After introducing "Intelligent verification" it became impossible to have fun gaming experience. It pops up method too often. And now for more then one day it just completely blocks entry to the game. One star until you fix this stupid "intelligent" verification issue! Otherwise I like the video test itself and the graphics.
After level 10 upgrades costs more then a days time to actually upgrade. So leveling takes alot of true globe time. They are extremely hungry for money, every thing takes alot of time so to chop time off you buy these very expensive speed buffs which lasts for that one put and that one item. a 1 day speed buff for building costs nearly 40 dollars. Seriously cash hungry people.. Extreme Pay to Victory android game if you wish to do this as a professional.
Its fine at begin been playing it nonstop then suddenly i got banned from the game? This is the first time that developers banned a player for playing their android game too much. Customer service wont wven answer to tell me why my acc was banned. Waste of time and cash playing
I read a lot of reviews that people have problem loading the game. I think this android game requires more power to run it. I'm on a galaxy S9 and I haven't had a single issue except sometimes when I would zoom out on the map, it would zoom out 100% right away.
When ever i tried exiting the application and obtain back in the app, it always messes up, like, the map with begin crashing, enlarged town names, and weird province lining, and im forced to uninstall it and reinstall it, but other than that i love this android game
The Best All of the AoC android games are amazing, but this is definitely the best of them. Thanks for another amazing game! There is one little problem with this one in particular. If I leave the android game and come back within a couple minutes, the color of my civilization will be chsnged. This just started event recently, but has happened 3 times already. It's not a huge deal, but it'd be amazing if you could fix it.
Amazing but lots of bugs I think that this android game jas a very amazing potential and really brings up the idea of battle and conflict. But however, there is this one bug which really @#$%es me off, which is whenever i save a android game and quit the application and test to play again, it always says error android game deleted. If you fix this bug i will give it a 5 star.
Unlike no other! This android game is a android game that never gets boring and it continues to be a android game that you will never stop playing even if you delete so a lot of android games you will never delete this android game but I would love it if you could add the feature of allowing other countries that are allies of yours to give you cash when in need
Amazing adaptation but needs improvements. Would rate 5 stars if : - there was an option to automatically quick forward the turn of ennemies or at least to quick forward all of their turns at once on solo mode - you could hide the next 5 race/power cards in a panel to see the map a bit bigger
I love the game, have fun the boardgame too. However that being said the more I play the application version, I've now noticed that you're application calculations are broken. The scoring totals at the end are sometimes completely wrong. Obtain awarded 8 coins over 2 turns with a race, this despite me having a max of 10 on a go from the race, should have actually been 15. Please fix this so it scores and totals properly. I can't give it anymore than 2 stars because of that
I bought the android game tried to go online with it but for some reason it does not let it. I love the board android game and days of wonder android games in general are great, however it seems the help for this is on the bottom of their priorities. I tried contacting help its been around 2 months and I haven't received a response. Very dissapointed. I suggest never buying this application until they at least have a help squad assigned to this.
I have fun playing the game, and don't regret the price tag. Unfortunately it has been crashing approximately once per android game on me. At this point all I can do is wait for fixes that I figure are coming. It's a small tough to play on a phone and would be better on a smartphone but it's still doable and fun. This is a 5 star android game if you like tactic board android games but I can't ignore the crashes.
Love the board android game and decided to obtain the mobile version. The single player is a lot of fun (4 stars) and is real to the game, but after convincing my board android game group to obtain the android game and trying multi-player, it's quite disappointing. Half the time one my mates can't see the invite, once we got a couple android games going, the application started crashing regularly. As a software developer, I would feel poor putting my name on as buggy an experience as that, allow alone charging cash for it.
I don't recommend people buy this application (unless they are interested in only single player games) Amazing game, application works really well in single player mode. Application itself hasn't been updated in 2 years - the online play mode appears to be broken - so no group play. Development squad doesn't answer to emails - it looks like Days of Wonders have left this application to die. Too bad.
There is a bug that drops my rating. The CPU doesn't understand ghouls. It puts them in decline, then picks a fresh race, then the next turn puts the NEW race in decline. I think because they begin the turn with already in decline ghouls that they need to go in decline again. If you fix this bug, I'll rate 5 stars again.
It's simply too busy for me to follow. I have a Galaxy note 4 and I have 20/20 vision and I can't create out numbers or words during android game play. To zoom in to something is too bersome and interrupts the already jerky android game play.
If you only wish a android game to play locally, it works fine. But *nothing* that requires connectivity works. Acc creation wouldn't work, so I got my mate with an iPad to set one up for me. Then we tried to play online and I got kicked out. Repeatedly. Even when it just tries to modernize scores online that fails and the android game crashes.
