Freeciv is an impressive, detailed clone of civilization. It offers online play via servers but is not designed for single player games (although there are servers for this purpose and local games are possible if you make a server). In Freeciv, your goal is to gradually build up your civilization by learning new technology, by building improvements on your city, and by insuring that your citizens are happy. This game has a very steep learning curve, possibly with an exception for those accustomed to Civilization.
Assurément un jeu à essayer pour ceux qui ne le connaissent pas.
The game's graphics are mediocre, but in something like FreeCiv, that doesn't really matter. There's also no sound or music, but again, there was hardly any in Civilization, and you can easily play your own music if you prefer. To conclude, if you're a Civilization fan, or just a strategy fan, this is a must-have. FREE Civilization. What more could you want?
The end result is that Freeciv is an absorbing game which will appeal to anyone who liked Civilization.
