  2. What can I say?
    by k-athleen, Canada - May 23rd 2018

    I got this game for 10 bucks, and I've gotten hundreds of hours of gameplay out of it. I'd been playing civ 4 way past it's prime, and it was really refreshing to jump to the "newer" version. With all the DLC, Civ pretty much never gets boring. Grab it while it's on sale; it's a great deal.

  4. The best Civilization game
    by Requiem, Sweden - Feb 26th 2018

    I can't really put my finger on that one thing or those things that make this game really stand out and appeal to me. It has a number of changes all across the board of course and in my opinion a series of serious improvements from the previous installments. The entire game just feels better and more logical, larger, where I thought of Civ IV as a let down, Civ V really stands out as my new favourite Civilization game.

    It's the most complex one yet, but it makes total sense to civilization and empire building. The way you settle is made better, the way your cities grow and regions expand is better, your units and the battles are better, your cities are built better. The world around you is better too!

    The depth comes at a cost though, if you will: There's a huge amount of things to learn during your games and time easily gets lost with this, it's becoming the Just one more Round game that I used to find in Civ II CTP. Also this Complete Edition, there's just so much content and features you'd have to play for months before you could review it all!

    To me Civ V just seem to lack two things: First being the more tactical depth of battlefields, but the battles are better than before if you ask me. Second, the overall overview of your cities' growth, interaction and tile improvements. It's hard to keep track of what you've done and where when your campaign runs across several sessions and this is the only real game drawback for me.

    I'd say that if you're into Civilization, V and the Complete Edition is a must have!

  5. Complicated but fun
    by Greg Michelson, USA - Feb 24th 2018

    If yu want a challenge and and enjoy history this game is great. If you want a quick battle, I suggest you try another game. The HELP is very well done; read it a lot. Try the scenarios and then pick a country/nationality and stick with it for a few games. I have roughly 250 hours in the game and still only know about 40% to what there is to learn. Big HINT watch your HAPPINESS score; don't let it go negative. Also see YOU TUBE for good samples and a lot of help.

  6. From casual to challenging, and all out addictive
    by Terry Witzu, Canada - Dec 28th 2017

    And what else would you expect from the fifth improvement on one of the greatest games ever made.

    Improvements include a new element to attacking cities, and a final farewell to the ridiculous unit stacking of all previous Civilization's.
    Some thing's never go out of style, and the addictive binging first experienced will be an experience repeated many times. As your interest wanes from game to game, and inevitably straight back to this title.

  7. It's going to cost ya!
    by shallowsp, USA - Dec 21st 2017

    Considering how much time spent playing this game, I often wonder whether I should be the one to get paid, not the game author. A must play classic for sure.

  9. Great game to begin the series with
    by Brian O.4, - Aug 24th 2017

    Having bought the game on steam my only regret is not buying it sooner. Great game to play with friends and the scenarios make it fun to play alone as well.

  10. The definitive Civ experience
    by cyrusb, USA - Jul 18th 2017

    Civ5, with all expansions and DLC, is as close to a perfect Civ experience as you can get. Plenty of unique civs to pick from, great maps and scenarios, and fleshed out gameplay from beginning to end.

  11. Timeless, especially with steam and mods
    by drkenz, USA - Jul 16th 2017

    I have always loved the Civ games and started with Civ III, then Civ IV. I also enjoy the fact that Sid Meier included biblical references within several of the "projects" a country can undertake. I play using steam and include some of the "mods" found in the steam workshop which can enhance gameplay in a plethora of ways. Sadly, my iMac lacks the faster video RAM to use the newer Civ VI. However, now that I am retired, the many extraordinary modifications make Civ V a game which never becomes tiresome.

  12. Tablet Compatible CIV game
    by Yeves Hummels, United Kingdom - Jul 7th 2017

    The first hexagon civilisation game, quite a lot DLCs, but it's nice to buy the complete version.

    Personally I prefer CIV4 and I would give 4.5/5 for the game only, but CIV5 has nice compatibility running on tablets. This is a really nice feature which I like a lot.

  13. Love History & Thought Provoking Strategy? Buy Now!!!
    by Joseph R.8, USA - May 22nd 2017

    Picked up the complete edition on sale; I am really impressed with all of the DLC and what it has to offer. Highly addiciting and fun. I am new to the series and have heard great things so I wanted to give it a shot. If this sounds like you, go for it, the game has a tutorial set up plus a skill level that plays like a tutorial on all the scenarios, so it should not feel overwhelming at all. There is a lot of content here so I enjoy the history education and insight it provides as well. If you are looking for an experience and are not in a rush when having time to play, I would highly recommned Civ 5 Complete Edition.

  14. Incredibly rewarding and addictive!
    by Sumit P, USA - Apr 5th 2017

    What can I say, this game is my first 4X game and still my favorite one. The tutorials and UI make the game easy for a beginner yet the game still has depth for any skill level. I also recommend getting this over Civ 6 for now until all the DLC/Updates come out for the newer game. This is still my go to Civ!

  15. Can't Complain
    by Louis DeLaura, USA - Apr 3rd 2017

    If you like any Civ you'll like this game. The graphics have been massively updated and the gameplay is just as solid and fun. I think it is an improvment over Civ 4
