Could YOU lead a civilization?
16 November 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Another Great Sid Meier game. Civ 2and for that matter any other Civ game gives you the opportunity to develop or evolutionary a whole civilization from it's simple birth up to a glorious Space exploration by going to the planet Alpha Century. Along the way you have to battle other civilizations for supremacy or at least a lasting co-existence and develop technologies such as the wheel, electricity, communism among others that give you the ability to build city improvements such as Banks, Temples and supermarkets and units such as Settlers, Mech. Infantry and caravans, along the way you also gets the opportunity to build wonders such the Colossus and the Hanging Gardens.

This is indeed a very addicting game with very few drawbacks and those only very minor (floods and barbarians can at times be annoying), I have found myself still playing this game a couple (at least) of hours after I first said "This turn and then....".

Graphics and sounds arn't spectacular but sufficient and the High Consult, Throne Room and view city features becomes boring quickly as a result. The game is easy to get into but hard to master fully (the manual isn't much help unless you got a hour or so to spare, it's a heavy tome!) but the last-ability is extremely high so the game gets a 9 out of 10.
