The best game of the saga

Pony11 | March 3, 2012 | Review of Sid Meier's CivilizationĀ® V

This game, whilst having a simple premise, turns out to be very challenging and fun.

In this saga you are the leader of one of the civilizations of the world and you must dominate the culture, the science, the military or the democratic path to win.

Compared to the older Civ games the GUI is much improved, some things were rebalanced and all the military and tactical aspects reworked. The new hexagonal grid system makes the military path more interesting and challenging at the same time.

Technical aspects are good too. Graphics are simply amazing and well optimized although you may need a faster processor and lots of ram for the very large maps. Sound is the weaker point of the game - too basic and repetitive.

Also you don't need to worry about DLC; you can download one of the thousand of in-game available mods and enjoy your new civs, techs or maps! You can also make your own mods using the SDK!

This game is a must have if you love strategy.
