Game Review: Civilization V (Civilization 5)

For Xmas I decided it has been far too long since I have played a new game I actually liked, the last game being Civilization IV (Civ 4) no doubt which was an excellent game, with both expansion packs in play. This new version of Civilization 5 is as great a title as its predecessor. The game play has been simplified in my opinion making it easier to play for newcomers to the title. Although I liked the addition of Govt/Religion in the last Civ game, this games implementation was way easier to deal with, and not as overwhelming. The choice of civilizations is impressive, this time around you only have 1 leader per nation, also unlike previous versions of the game, new civilizations are being added by packs downloadable from the Civ 5 website. I also noticed that the general graphics of the game is much improved, also the tiling system for control of the map is different and easier to manage. The game has less units/buildings but I think that is a good thing as too much of either can become overwhelming, especially when you don’t know what each thing is for and when you should build something versus not. The game does need a 256MB Video Memory to run, and it does require a pretty decent machine to run the game, at least a 2GHz machine in my tests (my atom 1.6GHz machine couldn’t run it). Overall I think if your into a strategy game where your down to spend about 500 turns, use your mind to plan an empire, and then deal with whatever situation that might arise, Civilization 5 is a must have game.
