This game offers you great ways of experiencing the joy of dominating over your enemies: Diplomany, culture, science and domination. You can play as many different leaders(especially with DLC), learn how they work, what's their weakness and what kind of supremacy fits them. The mod workshop is also great, many people contribute to the game with many mods you can enjoy. Also, if you dislike to play with players, there are AI. They can be set on many difficulties, from Settler(very easy) to Deity(You will never win this by yourself). There is much more of content i can describe, but theres no space for that! The only bad thing is multiplayer - after 200 turns, the game takes a very long time to finish, because of all the units everybody have. I recommend this game highly, and never forget - Never trust Ghandhi.
An Amazing Game To Make time Flybetzmigs | Aug. 13, 2014 | See all betzmigs's reviews »
This game. Oh man this game... I recently picked it up and immediately got addicted. Your task is to take a civilization and expand it throughout history, making history your own playground. Depend on what kind of game you choose, (short, long, small map, big map, 4 Ai, 12 Ai) determines how strategic you have to be. Do you aim for a military victory and take everybody's capitals for yourself? Do you play it safe and go for a science victory and reach space before anyone else? Do you earn everyone's approval and go for a diplomatic victory? Or do you complete 5 social policies and get a cultural victory? There are plenty of ways to play the game. Every few turns your city/cities expand giving you room to make farms, roads, trading posts, or forts to add to your city/cities. Even if you play it safe, there are still barbarians to watch out for. They'll take your workers and try to mess with your cities. Also watch out for Napoleon... Napoleon is a jerk. And finally just remember: A "quick" game is nowhere near quick.

Sid Meier's Civilization V is a fantastic strategy game that will completely consume you. It has quite a bit of a learning curve, but the pay off of knowing how to play this game is completely worth it. Once you get into it, you wont want to get out. This is a game that you need to set aside an entire day for just to play. Your job is to build a grand civilization from the ground up by researching different technologies, constructing cities, harvesting resources, and warring with other civs. Setting the game to a marathon progression and with a massive random map has to be some of the most fun I have had playing video games. The initial thrill of exploring the land around you, and the rush of excitement you get when you attempt to sail around the world and discover a new continent is something only Civilization V can provide. This game is tons of fun to play by yourself, but even more fun if you play with a friend, the game allows you to set up matches over the internet or a LAN connection to play with friends, and some of the predicaments you get into with the other AI civilizations can be incredibly funny and rewarding. Overall, this is probably the game I have sunk the most time into on PC, it is truly a wonderful experience.
P.S. Don't trust Gandhi, he may seem friendly in the beginning, but once you get to the nuclear era... it doesn't matter how long you have been his friend, he will drop nukes on your cities.

Everytime I start a new game of Civilization V, I never forget to set an alarm unless if not, I'll never get off the computer. This shows how addictive this game is and I'm not even a fan of strategy game, just a casual player. Whether you play it alone or with friends, this game is an amazing experience.
