This game has to have the most intuitive interface of all strategy games I have played. Not only are the graphics fantastic, with all details showing prominent color and texture, but the interface is easy to learn, and easier to remember. The soundtrack of Civ V is pretty great as well, let's just say you will never be bored playing this game, especially on the higher difficulty levels.

Sid Meier's Civilization is a strategy game in which you build your own civilization, then you need to make them stronger so they can be able to defend themselves. This one is the best game in the series by far, it has an amazing gameplay and soundtrack, making the game more intense and cool to play. I think the developers made a great work on producing this game. Anyway, I recommend this to all kind of gamers and especially those who are fans from the other games in the series and for those who enjoy strategy games. Amazing game!

I got it on sale, and so far, i think i might've been one of the best purchases i've made, it doesn't require a strong PC to run and yet it runs really smoothly. Pros and Cons: +Great music(When at war and when it's peaceful) +Somewhat tricky AI players - the joke of Gandhi nuking you never gets old +A lot of ways you can win (Politics, Religion, Domination, etc) +Some units which can change the tide to go to your favor ~Multiplayer has issues, but you can play Offline ~Somehow the strategy is not that complex: if you go at war you don't need to be experienced to defend yourself, etc.
The price value is good, but i would rather wait for a sale, it's worth it.

I've quickly spent over 80 hours playing this game and still i do not know everything there is to discover around this game. The complete edition with all the add-ons is an excellent appeal for this magnificent must buy game. The replayability allied to a strong AI, massive mechanics and beatiful scenarios makes this game almost perfect for strategy lovers.

I am a Civilization fan and I think Civilization series is one of the most exciting games in the 4X genre.
Civilization (CIV) series are games about conquering the world, simple as that, the goal is defined, but the ways to achieve it are endless. CIV games are considered to be from the 4X genre, a series of Grand Strategy games where you take control of your own empire and set out to be the world leader by any means necessary.
This is CIV V, the fifth game in the series and the Complete edition is truly the definitive experience for this game, and here is why:
CIV IV Beyond the Sword was my all time favorite 4X game. It was because it was complete with everything Civilization series set out to be, with diverse and interesting victory conditions, extremely deep tech trees and with a complete set of almost every scientist, artist, architect, wonder and general that has left a mark in the world included in the game in a way, it was truly a game well worth the price.
But it WAS my favorite until recently, the change was due to the fact that CIV V had an new Expansion Pack called Brave New World.
Brave New World fixes the issues that were entangling the Original CIV V and adds the complexity and diversity that Beyond the Sword (BTS) had, combined with the updated engine of CIV V and the gameplay of CIV IV BTS, CIV V Complete edition is a must have for both fans of the genre and for those who are looking to get in!
The complete edition includes CIV V, CIV V Gods and Kings and Brave New World expansion packs along side other DLC, this is the reason why anyone planning to play CIV V should consider getting the Complete Edition!

Its a great game overall but its just missing something. No more extra strategy like, do i want to be the first to create a religion, or do i want to create a massive army first? The tech trees are so balanced that no matter which way you go youll always be balance with other civs unless your about 4 techs ahead of them. Not to mention the fact everybody is going to try to kill you, even if you are allies, its curious as to why there arent really any allies in this civ. But if you prefer the total war kind of strategy this is perfect for you. Im just waiting for gods and kings which will hopefully expand the games content massively as its said to do. Re-adding religion and espionage. The game itself is awesome. So many things that you can do and ways to do them but lack of strategy is definitely in this game.
