Did You Know?


The game features 33 world wonders (special unique buildings that cities can build). As of the game's release in 2005, 30 had actually been built (or were potentially mythical); one, the Three Gorges Dam, was under construction; one, Rock N Roll, wasn't actually a building, and one, the Space Elevator, was hypothetical.

Amazing Game, at least for play
31 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first heard about Civ IV and all the new additions, I was a bit doubtful. Religion and unit categories and all that didn't sound like they would be good. I was wrong. Once I was playing the game, I was amazed. If I go back and play the others, I will miss so many things, such as religion. Easier gameplay, such as civil disorder changes, were brought in. (Rather than have cities stop building stuff when people get angry, only those angry people stop working). New animations, showing the actual combat, enhanced the feel of this world. The ability to choose which leader of a team you are was also welcome, as well as the speed with which the game moves. (I never finished a Civ III game because it took so long to get technologies, I got bored.) The one fault is the scenario creating system. Unlike Civ III, where you just clicked "Add Civ" and added one, you have to go through a lot of tough programming sequences and "XML" files and all that. However, the game is easy to play and fun. Not only is it neat, it has great quotes from history from Leonard Nimoy, and lots of humor can be found throughout (mainly through dialogues from characters from Caeser and Catherine.) Highly recommended. 9/10
