Review of Civilization 5 Korea DLC

Not North. Not South. Just Korea.

Sound: Why do I even bother. It’s Civilization music! Sound: 8/10

Presentation: Not much to be said. The game looks good as usual, nothing special with Korea. Presentation: 7.5/10

Gameplay: The Korea DLC includes a scenario, which is a particularly fun one in which you team up with either China or Japan to conquer the opposing team of Civs. It’s fun, and incorporates a lot of team building strategies into it. Korea as an actual character is okay at best. He’s science based, but the problem is that every other science oriented Civilization has better bonuses/abilities than him! Babylon, China, etc. all outrank him in terms of good scientific bonuses, which sort of defeats the purpose of playing as Korea in the first place. Gameplay: 6.5/10

Multiplayer: N/A

Length: The scenario is short and sweet, ending at about just over an hour and a half. You most likely won’t get a lot of replayability out of the actual character in-game due to his somewhat weak qualities, which means the scenario is primarily where your money would be put. Length: 4/10

Overall: This DLC gets a 5.5/10. Not a great add-on, but the downloadable content is fairly cheap, so it could be worth getting it just for the bragging rights.
