User Reviews

The best civilization and empire-building simulation to date Windows Frecklefoot (191)
The best, and worst, computer game of all time... Windows Vaelor (377)
It's good... it's very good... but it's not more than that, unfortunately... Windows Gothicgene (83)
Another classic - but it''s got some flaws Windows Rick Jones (108)
A great new game, arguably a classic, but so different from earlier Civs that you can't compare them. Windows weregamer (157)
A worthy successor to the Civilization lineage. Windows James Kirk (159)
You call this a game? It's a MASTERPIECE! Windows Kobus Myburgh (2)
