Summary

The best of the Civ-like games

The Good

While some say it ripped off Magic: the Gathering with its game style (it did), the combination of the spell research and the civ-style play is the best I've ever played (much better then Master of Orion, IMHO). Also, unlike other games that break down when it goes into tactical combat, this one really shines, even when you let the computer fight for you (well, when the odds are in your favor.)

The Bad

The Win98 update/sequel was never completed!

The Bottom Line

Civ meets Magic: the Gathering!
