An all time classic,
This review is from: Civilization IV (PC DVD) (Video Game)
This is truely a great strategy game. I have played all the civi games from the start and this is far and away the best. I have been playing it off and on for 6 months now and I still find new depths to it.
There are quite a lot of features in the game. The genius is to combine the features in such a way that they all complement one another. There are few, if any, features that are there for 'marketing reasons'.
Particular improvements since civi 3 are:
- villages and towns (thes provide good revenue but require forward planning)
- Corruption is handled much better, particularly at the more difficult levels.
- The new religous aspects work well
- Unit promotion is a major improvement
The only feature that irritates me is when my cities rebel and go over to the other side - and you can turn that off.
The greatest turn based strategy game ever, by a mile.
