A casual take.

AvuriDash | July 26, 2012 | Review of Sid Meier's Civilization® V - Game of the Year Edition

Sure, it's not a complex marvel of strategy games. There are many design decisions that feel poorly implemented and detract from the classic Civ formula of the previous games. The AI also has serious flaws with playing its own game properly, and the diplomacy feel like bartering with bipolar kindergarteners. However, if you approach this game from a casual standpoint, it can be quite enjoyable despite its flaws. There is still a great deal of depth and strategy in the game. Plus, Firaxis does a wonderful job at pulling you into the most immersive and visually pleasing Civ game yet.
