  1. Civilization V
    by Andrew Schmith, USA - Mar 16th 2014

    Game is buggy-will send units in undesired directions at critical moments,throwing the game.Foreign military units are not shown forming or advancing until they are upon you,even with no roads or rough terrain. Precise placement of units is haphazard when moved. Computer seems to set you up for war and confrontation continuously.Enemies attacks seem to count more score points than equal units of your own when you attack.

    Almost impossible to win against combined alliances,even at beginner level..Gave up and moved game into trash.

  2. Civ 4 is a better game.
    by Frank Murphy, USA - Dec 30th 2013

    Civ 5 has alot of waiting time for each turn and I don't like the fact that you can't stack units for attack. This seems to make the game play longer and become boring. They waisted a lot on graphics instead of game play options.

    Civ 4 could of had better graphics but the options are plentifull.

    I love Sid Myers games, it love the diplomacy, economics and war. Fun game, a little long, tough to take on one whole game in one sitting. still its entertaining and gives you your moneys worth in gametime.
