If you got the first Civilization game for the PC, it's like playing the Atari console compared to this new version. Civ II has much better graphics, though if you're looking for great graphics, this is the wrong game for you -- this is a strategy game, not blood 'n' guts. You have option to speak with your advisors at any time for their suggestions (science, attitude, military ...); you have many worlds to choose from; you watch as your spaceship is built (if you get that far along); you have more wonders of the world and science advancements and there's an auto game save feature. These are just some of the new features; basically, it seems the game staff got a lot of criticisms on the first version and added all the good suggestions. I can't stop playing this even though I've won it over and over. I keep wanting to win at a higher difficulty, so I can end up with a higher civ rating.
