100 Word Review - #T12 - Sid Meier's Civilization V

Could do with a few more tanks.

Genre – Strategy


Developer Firaxis Games

Other Games by DeveloperSid Meier's Pirates!, Sid Meier'sCivilization IV

Tom's Current Playtime – 33.7 hours

The fifth installation of a series which has seen much evolution, “Civ5” benefits from many of the plus points of previous games with few of the cons. With numerous victory possibilities, from killing everyone else to sending the first shuttle into space, and many civilizations with unique traits, you'd be hard pressed to find two identical games. One of the few games around where every decision genuinely does have some impact, the game encourages you to play your cards carefully, lest one of your opponents take advantage. Is this the best “Civilization”? Maybe. Regardless, a damn fine game.

Tom's score9/10
