Civilization V

 

It can't be easy for a long-running game series to stay fresh after 19 years and several iterations of one general idea, yet Civilization has managed remarkably well. Through its first four versions, the quintessential PC strategy game has evolved from...

Addictive as ever. Some excellent game-play additions

Feels far more simplistic and less rich than previous Civilization titles. Changes to major mechanics will require significant readjustment time for veterans

Given the series' stellar pedigree, Civilization V would have to work feverishly to be disappointing. But this highly simplified chapter in the Civ saga tries its best.

Civilization V is one of the best strategy games I have ever played. There are some issues but those are so minor in comparison to all the great things Firaxis has done to not only make this accessible to new players but even returning players as well....

Civilization V

 

Civilization V is one of the most eagerly anticipated strategy games of all time. Ever since I last saw the title at E3 2010, I have been waiting for the moment to get my hands on the final version. That time has finally come and the only thing...

Overall, Civilization V is arguably the best game released all year. While some may boast that PC gaming is dead, this title alone says “I don’t think so.” If you love strategic gameplay, are a fan of the franchise, or just looking to play one of the...

Never bring a knife to a gunfight – bring an assault rifle and a stealth bomber

Interface is superb with everything in close proximity. Game is streamlined for newcomers to the Civilization franchise

Unit path-finding can be substandard at times

One new feature of combat is the ability of ranged units to attack over a distance. With the one unit per tile rule, the use of ranged units becomes more important, especially when bombarding enemy cities. Unfortunately, although the ranged units can...
