Great but not that complex 4XMurderbot735 | July 28, 2015 | See all Murderbot735's reviews »
Civilization V is really easy to get into, and very fun. Almost every part of the base game is simplistic and easy to understand, which is good for me who isn’t the biggest fan of 4X’s, but may be terrible for other people. The combat is simple and fun, at least when it is the enemy who’s getting crushed, and researching new technology and using it is great fun (especially when it’s weapons). Military victory (by conquering the map) isn’t the only way to win the game, but in my opinion the most satisfying. Nuking your enemies and exterminating them with a giant killer-bot is of course the best way to get stuff done. There are also many different countries to play as, and they all come with a special unit, building or something else. That allows for some variation. Overall it’s a good 4X, but the base game might be too simplistic for some.

Well its an awesome strategy game which is quite addictive. Its gameplay is easy to understand and you really learn a lot of historical things from this game. The game includes dlcs like brave new world and gods & kings which makes the game a super hit. If you enjoyed Age of Empires- I highly recommend getting this game.
