Summary

Sun Tzu would like this one

The Good

From a hut to an empire, who wouldn't like to do it?

The Bad

Units put on autopilot from point A to point B tend to take the path of most resistance, as opposed to least. Typical MicroProse annoyance.

The Bottom Line

HELLO! Have you been under a rock?! You need me to tell you about Civilization?!

Really, it's a great game. If you even have the least bit of Napolean, Alexander the Great, et al in you, you'll like it.
