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 For the History Books


Sid Meier is back with Civilization V, his latest world conquering sim that will definitely find a place next to humanity's greatest leaders in the history textbooks.

Civ V's modern graphics and substantial production values make it the new series standard by default. For the most part its gameplay tweaks feel natural, a refresh of the core Civilization gameplay. After twenty years, there is still something very...

Civilization V Review


You'll want a good solid month to disappear into Civ 5, the latest release in the greatest turn-based strategy series ever. Get ready for an addictive experience like no other as we get stuck into Civilization V.

Sid Meier's Civilization V


Let's face it; the start of the holiday video game season is upon us. The slew of highly anticipated games for 2010 have started to roll onto

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...

Civilization V


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...

Civilization 5


For the last few years, there's been a not-so-quiet war brewing over the Civilization series. On one side; the strategy series' purists craving the depth and formula they've known for years. On the other, the fans brought in by the series' first...
