Atari Australia Press Quotes - Windows:
    "Think of Civilization III: Conquests as you would an even more densely programmed History Channel. If you found yourself at all invested in the first, you're going to want to check this out. And if the first one intimidated you a little, be afraid. Be very afraid. 4.5/5 " - GamesDomain.com

    " The great thing about Civilization III: Conquests is that a majority of changes have streamlined the gameplay of this excellent turn-based strategy series. Fans simply must give it a try, while rookie strategists are advised to check out the manual before diving into the game's complex challenges. In any case, we're looking at a very good add-on, which successfully builds upon the traditions of one of the most popular strategy games ever. 86%" - Actiontrip.com
