Pros Good graphics, sound, and EXCELLENT gameplay!
Cons How would you like to play for a couple hours working hard to build a giant empire, only to have a message pop up that says the game will end in ten turns? After the game ends, all your work on that empire is for nothing but 25 Gamerscore.
Summary Defiantly a good game, but ruined by one giant problem as said above. Other then that, this is a must have for anyone who loves simulation games.
Pros Graphically it's great. Fn and cartoon like with indepth detail. Easy to get used to and very easy to get the basics.
Cons Not as involving as games before. Lacks depth. Completed it in 4 hours on my first go and i wasn't on the easiest setting.
Summary I have loved Civ games from the first time i tried them. They are a constant of enjoyment for me. But this just didn't hit the mark. I think that maybe it had been dumbed down for the console market. But i had Civilisation on the PS1 as well as PC and they were both a joy. Dont get me wrong! Good game? Yes. I just felt it lacked width. If you have played Civ games before dont get your hopes p to high.
