Behold the empire of Civilization at its peak

Civ 4, man I loved this game. I came from Civ2 onward, playing each release and expansion. Each game would come with multiple late night games against a friend. I would always lose, of course, but I'd make him earn it.

But anyway, this is the pinnacle of the Civ games for me. I squeed a little bit the first time I saw inflation as a thing you needed to worry about. I think, anyway, I don't know, it was always just a number that kept going up. I absolutely loved religions, founding as many as I could and spreading them like a virus.

Civ4 also improved on some of the ideas from Civ3, the main one I liked was the idea of borders. Anyone who has played Civ2 knows the frustration of trying to wipe a civ off the map, only to discover they've plopped a city smack dab in the middle of your empire. Civ3 gave you borders, but anybody could freely pass through them. Civ4 got it right.

Also, culture as another form of warfare was always my favorite. Great Artists culture bombing, forcing a culture flip on an enemy city, or maybe just a centuries long border dispute over a key resource. Basically, I loved this game, still do.

What is Civ 4?

Civilization IV is part of the Sid Mier's Civilization series and was created in 2005 and was a big hit during its days. This pack includes all of the DLC's that you can possibly get and if you compare this to Civilization V, I would say that the gameplay isn't that big of a difference when you look towards how engrossed you can get into the game. Even though there are slight differences in Civ 4, There is a mystical power behind the game that makes you want to continue playing without knowing whats attracting you.

Possibly the best Civilization to date

While Civ V has received lots of adoration after its launch and subsequent dlc's, Civ IV has standed the test of time well. There are lots of mods available that alter the game experience to anyone's taste, and the dlc that comes with this package will give hundreds of hours of gameplay already!

And everything well polished! The ultimate strategy game for those who want to conquer the world!

A great montage of Historic Turn-Based Strategy

homes223 | Feb. 5, 2014 | See all homes223's reviews »

Story: Build your civilization, progress through time, rise to power.

Graphics: Same old Civ IV art style, never gets old.

Audio: Not the most important part of the game but sounds fine.

Missions: One. Build your civilization as years go by.

Controls: Easy access UI, Can play most of game with just mouse

Features: So many ranging from cultures aspects to military units. Very Deep.

A.I.: Can out whit you very easily if you let your guard down.

Loading Times: Only one per scenario. Quick, painless.

Multiplayer: Almost the same as playing A.I. unless with a friend then it can get much more interesting.

Requirements: Low, Friaxis did a good job of making sure most Civ fans could run the game.

Weapons: You can be peaceful and avoid war....or build your army and destroy other civilizations. The Good: The best Turn-Based Strategy game out.

The Bad: Non-Civ Fans can be turned off by the deep gameplay...their loss. The Ugly: Ghengis Kahn up close and personal :D Replay Ability: Very High

The Bottom Line: Just for Civilization fans or those who have missed out on the great game that is Civ 4, shouldn't pass up.

CIV 4 is where it all started

Freako | Jan. 5, 2014 | See all Freako's reviews »

This complete pack is the best experience of turned based strategy game.

Civilization 4 is the actual start of the whole Civilization series. Majority of the features that were loved in the current Civilization games are brought to you by Civilization 4. This complete pack is the complete experience of how Civilization 4 came to be and what the DLC had to offer. The DLC is great with every single add-on in this pack. I would recommend people to buy this complete pack ASAP when there is a sale. Unlike Civilization 5 which has lots of dlc packs around. Civilization 4 with this complete pack. Gameplay will feel so much more different and multiplayer is almost the same as any other Civilization game out there.
