The single best strategy game I've ever played, and I have played many. Get all the DLC too, they're worth it. You can pick from a huge selection of nations to play as, and the DLC add even more. You can pick the difficulty, the map, the requirements to win, and much more to make it however you want to play. Civilization V also runs on my very low end Toshiba Satellite with minimal problems.
Warning! This game can be addicting!Furrek | July 4, 2014 | See all Furrek's reviews »
I think I never was fan of Civilization series, or maybe I never had enough time to start and sit a bit more than hours or two. Not so long ago I tried 5th Civilization game. In one sitting I played this game for 8 hours. 3 out of 8 hours in tutorial - because I was in need to know everything and there was nothing I didn't knew in normal game. Rest of them was my first campaing. I did choose a small map, because of time, and completed it in first sitting. After this time I know one thing - this game is so addicting! Each turn maybe don't take so much time, and you are just playing next one, and next one, and maybe one more, when the thought comes into your mind: "Holy cow, it's really this late?". If you have a real life, you are going to school or work, don't try to play this game. Do it after, or maybe on weekends. It will really eat many hours from your life. This game can be played as long as you want, and multiplayer sessions seems like never ending story...

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.

I have put hundreds of hours into this game with all of the different civilizations,difficulties,scenarios, and different ways to win the game. This game is very addicting and you probably shouldn't start a game before going to bed. You will definitely get your money's worth out of this game and fall in love with all the different units in the game such as the archers, the warriors, and the battering rams.As you progress through the different eras your troops will change and you will unlock new technologies. If you are looking for an advanced strategy game with a lot of re playability, than I highly recommend this game
Boy this game is gogogoood!PeyWn | June 17, 2014 | See all PeyWn's reviews »
Well this is one hell of an addicting game, once you start playing it you simply can't stop. Civ V is an amazing strategy game with alot of content and depth. Civ V is also what the player makes it, for example if you are a beginner the game can be really easy if you follow the tutorials. But it can also be one darn complex game if you want it to be, from having almost EVERYTHING thats going on in you empire automated you can do it manually. Buy this game and expand it with DLCs as you go, it will also probably be good if you have lots of spare time your gonna need it.
