Great addition to the series

Rightman97 | Aug. 24, 2011 | Review of Sid Meier's CivilizationĀ® V

A couple of years ago I bought Civilization 4 and I have always been fairly aware of this series however this is the first game in it that I have played avidly. From what I have played so far this game appears to be a solid, all round turn based strategy. You can just pick and play this game although it's always useful to check the tutorial. All civilizations seem to be quite balanced and fair, (although I prefer to play as the Japanese) no player has a huge advantage. Sometimes you can be so enthralled in the gameplay that you forget to save your game, it is incredibly annoying when you load your saved game to find you are all the way back in the classical era. The only negatives I have with this game is that the advanced areas such as terrain bonuses and unit combat bonuses aren't clearly explained however a couple of YouTube could easily sort that out.
