Cyclades is fine as it is, but the Hades expansion is a great addition for the veterans out there that may want to take part in a renewed game, with new strategic possibilities (the rating for this well-thought expansion follows my evaluation of the base game).

Playing Cyclades with Hades radically changes the way the base game used to play: as a matter of fact it turns Cyclades into a different, way more difficult game, with so many more things to reckon with that you will surely miss one or two of them, most likely the ones that will cause your defeat.

Hades doesn’t require but surely benefits from a group of players who already have some experience with the base game and know its basic strategies: actually, if you’re the one explaining Hades to the other players, expect to be so busy answering to their doubts and questions that you’ll neglect how the game is progressing and thus you will miss a few key moments over the game that will cost you the success.

The designers have an amazing knack for making complete, well-rounded games, then releasing a relevant expansion which feels as an organic part of the original. The only weak point was the Necropolis for us, it remained underutilized so far, I guess it's more useful with five players, and it's balanced by the devastating power of the undead army.

This expansion is a must if you like Cyclades.
The Hades expansion adds a very nice Guerrilla warfare, which adds to the tension.

Really great expansion that comes in 4 modules.
-Bidding for starting position is great
-Hades adds some cheap one time units + the necropolis
-Heroes are pretty cool and powerful but can get expensive
-Divine favors increase the value of the last god with some nice bonuses.

As expected, it fixes the issues of the base game by slowing Zeus down. One of those expansions that improves a game without significantly altering it - it means that there are multiple equally valid paths to victory, now, instead of one path being clearly better than the others.

An excellent expansion to the base game offering an already strong game much longer legs for future replay. My one reservation would probably be the price, which is quite high for an expansion. That said, the components are of excellent quality and perfectly match those of the base game.

I've bought the expansion and got also the Goody at Essen 2011. If this game keeps, what the rulebook promises, this will be one of the best expansions I've ever seen. I'm looking SO much foreward playing this!
Update: Great great addition to a great great game! My rating will go up with additional plays!
Update: Played it again this weekend twice! This game never fails to amaze. It is bursting with fun and agonizing decisions. I upgrade my vote.

Simply a blast. Much more possibilities and variety. Don't miss it if you already like the base game.
Still the game lasts a bit long - especially if people know the game better, which is unusual.

This expansion perhaps is expensive for the components inside but really, the value of game added by its contents was worth the price for me. I've played with all the mods except player chosen setup and they've all transformed the base game into a more tense, thematic experience. Confrontation can happen more easily; everyone is less safe than they were previously owing to the powers of Hades and some heroes. Magical items offer perfect aces up one's sleeve. The expansion moves the game a little farther away from the Euro puzzle of set collection and area control into the more thematic variable powers offered by all the new moving parts. It essentially turns up the volume on the role played by the mythological creatures of the base game which, excepting Pegasus, rarely were game changing. The game plus this expansion perhaps is a little less clean and a little more chaotic, but the thematic party that is offered by so many mythological elements interacting at once is worth the extra mental effort of keeping all the special powers and new mechanics in mind. If it's a little too much, players have the option of playing only with the mods they like. For all the ways it offers to offer a varied and variable game experience, I would say that this expansion is a solid value, actually.

Exactly what an expansion should do. Makes an already good game outstanding. Smoothes out some potential issues: namely zeus/creature abuse and turtling. No place to hide from Hades! Makes turn order even more dynamic and interesting.

A couple of modules that add diversity and a lot of quality. The presence and actions of Hades alone brings the drive the base game is missing from time to time. Also, the various gifts bring much more variety and flexibility. I wouldn't play the game without the full expansion again.
