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 (111)
A great new game, arguably a classic, but so different from earlier Civs that you can't compare them. Windows weregamer (169)
A worthy successor to the Civilization lineage. Windows James Kirk (168)
