Product Description

Amazon Review

Few titles in computer gamedom are as revered as Civilization. With the recently released Civilization: Call to Power, Activision hopes to breathe new life into a classic game design. Brady Games's official guide to the game, written by Computer Gaming World editors Johnny L. Wilson and Terry Coleman, is an epic tome that can help any aspiring ruler build and maintain a powerful empire. The book begins with a quick explanation of the types of terrain in Call to Power and the amount of food, production, and gold supported by each. From there, you'll read about the basic elements, improvements, and units you'll need to build a thriving civilisation from your humble beginnings. Every military unit is explained in detail--from the basic phalanx to the televangelist to the ecoterrorist. Also, the book spells out the pros and cons of using each type of unit and provides some historical context for each of the real-world unit types in the game. You'll also learn how to set up and run an effective government--and how to maintain a balance between diplomacy and espionage.

Much of the rest of this book is given over to in-depth explanations for each of the game's 103 different advances. Each Wonder is similarly described. Stat tables and a section outlining several devious tactics and strategies round out the text. Basically, this is the ultimate Civilization: Call to Power sourcebook. If you need help building an empire to stand the test of time, look no further than Brady Games' official strategy guide.--Amazon.com

This is a great reference book to accompany the manual. Not much in strategy, but great information about the details of the game. Every CTP gamer should get one!
