Summary

You call this a game? It's a MASTERPIECE!

The Good

The delightful simplicity even with the complex nature of the game. The Civilipedia is very insightful, and helps you a lot when playing the game. Graphics is good (although not excellent) and music is catchy. The way that it makes me THINK like no other game EVER managed to do is remarkable!

The Bad

Slowness of AI turns during the latter stages of the game was a bit bad, but not bad enough to prevent me from becoming a total addict.

The Bottom Line

All I can say is that if you don't know about this game yet, you're missing out on the most important of all computer games EVER. You probably use your computer only for word processing...
