This game is all i could ask for in a Civilization game, endless fun. My mates and i have spent hours upon hours on multiplayer and playing the game mode "hot seat". if you are looking for a game to have an amazing time alone or with friends this is the game to get.

I was excited for this game, I really was. The greatness that was Civ4 but refined by the lessons learned from CivRev? Awesome. Unfortunately, while the individual pieces were refined and polished, something just felt off. And as much as I tried and tried to like it, I just never could come around on it. It's good, don't get me wrong, but it had the bad fortune of following one hard act to follow.
One of the best strategy games I played so farbenalish | Sept. 27, 2014 | See all benalish's reviews »
so yeah, pretty much this game is perfect in every possible way
I have spent over 300 playing hours on this game It literally took my life for few months, I have been trying to complete the game on the hardest difficulties (mostly on 8) with raging barbarians turned on,... pretty much failed every time but in return i got tons of fun out of it.
- moddable - this game gives you an opportunity to mod it in every way, i have been downloading approved and unapproved mods and played with them, never had any problems with the game, just getting better experience out of it
- graphics - the game is not really demanding, i am running it on a low-budget pc (256mb graphics card, 4gb ram,2.6ghz dual core intel) everything is running smooth, the animations are pretty decent, overall , rating it 4/5
- fun - yup, loads of fun
if you are searching for a strategy game that you can play for days.. even for months and years, civilization 5 is the game for you
Really funDingusaurus | Sept. 26, 2014 | See all Dingusaurus's reviews »
This game is extremely fun to play, and to immerse yourself in. There are multiple ways to win, and more ways are added in the DLC. The game is fairly challenging, which makes it fun, and keeps it interesting. It's very easy to lose track of time while playing, which has happened to me plenty of times. The game is good in the vanilla version, but it's made excellent with the DLC.
Goes beyond being a gameNewt | Sept. 26, 2014 | See all Newt's reviews »
Ever since playing Civilization I and II when I was a kid, this franchise has been special. At it's core Civilization is a very solid strategy game. However, when you begin to play you will see the rich culture and societal interactions which you balance on a turn by turn basis. Overall Civilization V continues this tradition of excellence in the franchise and is worth giving a try. I warn you though, once you get into a campaign it will be impossible to put it down!
