I asked a lot of times which civ game people think is the best, and I always get more mentions of civ5 (back when civ6 was not even mentioned), so I got civ5 and enjoyed the game, played it few days but somehow it managed to fade away in my library. Back when I was playing civ5 for the first times I had another old PC with Steam on it, and it couldn't run Div5 so I planned to get CivIII (this game) at one point, so here we are, 3 days later and more play time than civ3. I don't really know why or how, but for some weird reason I like CivIII more than the fifth game, it might be because of graphics? I really like the style of civ3, I like how everything looks and somehow it's pleasing to the eye. Civ5 might be fully 3D and stuff do look nice but there's something missing in civ5 from the third game, and even I can't say what. TL;DR CivIII was more addicting than Civ5, prolly because of artstyle (being isometric and all that)
Until this release, Civilization was a respectable franchise, but didn't have much to compete with. This is the first truly great game in my opinion. It adds a huge amount of depth to the franchise, looks amazing, and there are so many different things you can do with different civilizations. It's overshadowed by later releases, but it was astounding and is still good.
One of the best games of all time for Strategy genre fans. The interface is not as streamlined as Civ 5, nor is the game play as intuitive as Civ 4, but it is the best of the Civ series to operate on an old computer. Bear in mind that the AI is not as sophisticated as most would like - the computer controlled opponents will gang up on you for no reason.
That's that. Classic strategy gem. Yes - gem. Iv'e owned this game almost since it was released in 2001. I won't lie saying that I've spent several hundred hours with this game. But nowdays it's just a curiosity. Cheap legend to add to your Steam library if you're a collector or a fan of the Civ series. Nonetheless - a gem, as, in my humble opinion, Civ III is one of the best games in the series.
Recently, I found my old Civ 3 disc and gave it a whirl. Sadly, it's showing its rust. Now, first of all, the 4X format that the series mastered is still alive and beating in this third iteration. If you enjoy domination victories then you can take grim satisfaction in its cold, ruthless gameplay. However, I have little doubt that the fifth and latest Civilization is just an overall better game. It's not just that the UI is better, but Civ 5 takes the great core aspects of its predecessor and adds on new features that gives players far more freedom in choosing the direction and destiny of their civilization. Want to play small and focus on just a few high value cities? Now there are true incentives to do so. Prefer to acquire luxury goods through trade networks of allied city-states? Yep. Tired of your new towns in the modern era growing at the speed of molasses? Use trade caravans. Think having railroads on every square inch of territory is neither aesthetic or realistic? You betcha. So while I hate down rating a classic that was once my favorite game, there is no question that the developers have really improved their offering since then.
