Product Description

Become a part of the Civilization II phenomenon. Build an empire to span history, making every critical social, economic and political decision. Compete against some of the greatest leaders of all time. It's discovery. It's diplomacy. It's your destiny. So plan your every move carefully. Because in this game, you either stand the test of time or you're history.

Civilization II now conquers new territory on the PlayStation game console. An addictive world building experience, Civilization II allows the player to construct an empire "from scratch" using military and management tactics to turn a primitive tribe into an omnipotent world power. Defend and conquer using a wide range of weaponry. Deploy a variety of troops, equipment and technology... from archers, paratroopers and elephants to AEGIS cruisers and stealth fighters.

Plan a strategy to outwit history's most cunning leaders. Advanced diplomatic tactics allow you to wage war, make peace or form cooperative alliances with other nations. An all new interface adapted especially for the PlayStation game console lets you lead your empire with ease. Plus, a beginner mode offers hints along the way.

4.0 out of 5 stars hours of distraction 31 May 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Any complex sim is going to suffer for transfer from PC to console, but the fact is, this is an absorbing, utterly playable strategy game that doesn't aim too high but gets what it does RIGHT. I'm still playing this regularly, losing days to it, years after I got my hands on it. A fascinating blend of resource management, technology development, trade, war and diplomacy, it's extremely satisfying. Old it may be, but still satisfies long after fancier newer games lose their shine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Civilization II ps1 10/10 2 Mar 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I felt the need to write this after seeing the low score it's received. This is my favourite PlayStation 1 game, and I'm still playing it 10 years after I first bought it. I've spent at least 1000 hours playing this and I'm on my second disc after I wore out the first one!

It's a turn-based game were you have to guide your tiny civilization (choose from 21) from 4000 B.C. to the end of scoring in 2020 A.D., competing against other civs and fighting off barbarians. You begin with 1 or 2 Settlers, which create the cities and improve the land around them. These cities then produce structures, wonders and units to defend, attack and expand your empire. There are around 50 units altogether; from archers to tanks, triremes to aircraft carriers and everything in-between.You can carry on playing past 2020 A.D., which is when the most fun happens; conquering the other civs with your marines, stealth fighters, submarines and howitzers.

It isn't a fast-paced game but the fun is in planning what your cities are going to build next for the biggest advantage, where to create new cities, which civs to conquer and which to make peace with. There's a massive amount of things to cope with; choosing which government to rule with, trying to keep your citizens happy, nuclear warfare which can lead to global warming, lack of funds which can bankrupt your civ. There are 6 levels of difficulty so it is accessible to a wide range of ages. I started playing it at 11 or 12 years old and I'm still going strong!

I've played Civ II on the pc but prefer it on the PlayStation 1, oddly enough. It's a game you can play with one hand if you so desired, as most of the activity is going on in your little bonce! The graphics are basic, but contain all the info you need.
