Civilization IV review

  • The same game you've loved for years
  • Great People and religions added in
  • Epic multiplayer battles
  • You'll hit a few bugs. Save often
  • End game is a bit short
  • City management is a chore

And that’s just scratching the surface. A streamlined interface, a non-linear tech tree, impressive AI with 18 personalities, a new combat system (no more spearmen defeating tanks), amazing multiplayer features and narration by Star Trek's Leonard Nimoy all give the new Civ plenty of both flash and substance.

They're all rewards for fans of the series, but even if you’ve never played a Civilization game, you’re in for a treat. There's never been a better time to jump into the strategy genre and conquer the world.
