    by fpiket18, Hong Kong - Feb 2nd 2015

    Great game and everything! I suggest you buy the complete pack but this one is vanilla and it is a good base to learn from. Fun and interactive, you don't see the same thing twice!

  8. Not too complicated
    by phillipIsayev, USA - Jun 5th 2014

    Great game that is easy to learn with brights colors and easy interface. Do not consider yourself a heavy strategist gamer just because of this. But if you want to indulge yourself in this world start here.

    by MLG-J, Cote D'Ivoire - Apr 26th 2014

    This game is a great strategy game with lots of tactical challanges.

    I played it myself for several hours.

    But be careful, time passes quiet quickly by playing;)

  10. Civilization V
    by Drewbis, 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.

  11. 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.

    by Black_Star, USA - Oct 14th 2013

  14. iCiv?
    by Paul Fischer, USA - Mar 11th 2013

    Civilization 4 was definitely the epic peak, so far, of this series (though I have my hopes up for 25th year anniversary of the series coming up) and Civ 5, while beautiful and intuitive, was a dramatic almost devastating (for big fans of the civformula) break from the first 19 or 20 years of the franchise, almost resembling at first glance something designed for an ipad or cellular device. That being said, the newest version improves greatly with the expansions and downloadable content and keeps the most important aspects of the Civilization series, such as hot seat and exciting gameplay to keep you on the edge of the hot seat, as it were. At first it seemed the series had taken a distinct turn towards a chess or go-like gameplay, but after playing the boardgame diplomacy, I understood the logic and methodology behind the radical new system of combat that at first literally left my brother and I sputtering in fury as we were used to stacking our units, without regard to supply. As the scenarios and expansions became available, and you actually take the time to get used to the gameplay (I actually played Colonization for some small period in protest to this newest kindergame), Civilization 5 will win converts of family and friends and eventually win back the diehard civ loyalist as well, with a minimal opening of the mind.

  15. An improved civ, but where are the wonder cinematics?
    by Luiz Felipe Moraes Pereira, Brazil - Dec 16th 2011

    There are natural wonders, better graphics, better interface, it is more artistic...but there are no more videos when you build a world wonder, severely crippling the feeling of reward for doing it, there is only a image and a phrase now...
