Don't let the low minimum requirements fool you, its great even at the minimum requirements. It's graphics are top notch, and it's not glitchy or slow either (even with a load of things on the map). The Price is well worth it, I got it from Amazon, and I must say that its the best game I have purchased from them so far.
WARNING: This game is highly addictive! I got it in the post at half ten, installed it by eleven and played on it until three! Time flies by when playing this game, and you can never tell how many hours have passed when playing it, but to counter this the game has a VERY handy alarm option. In the options menu you can set an alarm to go off in a few hours as to not lose track of time.
The in game help was very helpful, as it tells you how a building would develop a city/country and what it would do etc. You can either make a country centred around economy, religion, military or science/culture, or a mixture of all. It takes almost everything into consideration, your people's and the other leader's disposition towards you, economic depression, religious wars etc. Also the game has a turn based system which I LOVE, since it reminds me of final fantasy and other such RPG games, but also because it gives you time to make decisions.Read more ›
Not so with civilization 4! This game is a world in it's own right. You get to control all of history, and live it your own way. There's almost nothing that you can't do.(involving many famous leaders, religions, science\technologies....)
The game is literally infinite in posibilities!
What I really like is that you can play the game according to your own personality and still win. If you want to be warlike you can be warlike. If you want to live the whole of history without a war, you can if you want. Unlike most strategy games, for once here you feel truly in control. You play by your moral rules.
It's also the most worthy game ever, being very educational and responsable when it comes to relating element of history.
And don't forget that this game is also loads of fun and pretty easy to get the hang of.(unlike most strategy games)
The only down side is this: How on earth is anyone ever going to make a better game! This truly is the pinacle of video gaming!
So, if you've got a brain and like games that make use of said organ, then buy this game and let you brain boogie!
The only thing I would suggest is to install it to a custom directory ( C:\games\civ 4) as I believe that the default location is the cause for some of the problems with win 7 based systems.
After you install it run "beyond the sword" and go to "advanced menu" and click on "check for updates"...it will then download the only update you need as the 1st 2 games are currently patched. Just go into the BTS folder and look for "patch" folder then run the patch. You will then be able to play this fantastic game in maxed out settings.
So I brought this game and found out it works on windows vista which a lot of games don't so I was very happy. But it didn't just meet Civilization 3, it went past it. The graphics are very good, there a more options to choose from with loads more civilizations (in beyond the sword). One thing which was great about it is that it gave real life problems.
This game is worth the money and at about £10 its cheap, plus with all 3 expansion packs you can't get much better then this. It beats all the other Civilizations, it is a must have game if you want to chill out.
