    This has to be the worst expansion pack's to one of the greatest games of all time.

    WHY DOES FIRAXIS KEEP RUINING SUCH A BEATIFUL GAME??

    The expansion is nothign but a collection of poor scenarios. Nearly all of the new items are not to scale with the game speed and they do not fit with the game style. I had lot of problems installing it and now it crashes to desktop after 15-20minutes of gameplay. I reload, and it crashes again!!! There are no new good ideas, contrary to what they say. There are some new espionage missions. And while that may sound good, none of them is actually fun to play. This expansion is the worst of the worst. Avoid it at all costs unless you hate having an extra $.

    I don't like it at all. The World War II scenario (is that the one called "Road to war"?) is the most inaccurate scenario ever. Franz Von Papen? :lol:

    For a definition of Troll: see http://www.flayme.com/troll/.
    Also read the Wikipedia article on flamebait: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flamebait

    Basically, when someone with only two posts to his name (before this thread) creates a thread on a forum for fans of a particular game that proclaims how terrible the latest expansion is, people naturally assume that you're trolling.

    I don't really like this xpac for the most part either. Espionage and Corporations are broken/nonsensical respectively imo. However the increased importance of sea trade and the navy is a nice addition, the new space race adds more flavor like the old Civ2 space race and some of the new units/techs are nice. I had a lot of fun playing the space scenario and I've had only one instance where it would repeatedly CTD in the same spot.

    So it's not all bad, and hopefully they will fix some of the issues with patches and maybe add a button to turn off the new spying/corporation stuff.

    Mostly it just sounds like you are just mad about having CTD issues. May I suggest a visit to the tech support forum. Although since you believe the expansion is "worst expansion pack's to one of the greatest games of all time" I would suggest you uninstall since that would completely resolve your issues!

    If you don't like it - don't play it and go back to Counter Strike.

    Ok. I've read your definitions how do they apply to my message???

    I don't know what people assume. Is a troll someone with only two posts?Yes the latest expansion is terrible. As a fan I am sooo disappointed with Firaxis.
