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.

Bound to become classic
6 December 2005 | by (Kiev, Ukraine) – See all my reviews

The new Sid Meier's Civ4 is one of the best games I've ever played!

Sid really took his time working on this one. Well, the gameplay didn't change much (& that's good). The first & the most major change is the new 3D engine (I'm not sure, but it looks like the one from Sid Meier's Pirates!). The world is so detailed you really begin to believe in what happens on screen. 2nd thing are the religions they have implemented. A very interesting addition. You can have a state religion & it will grant you some benefits but other civs with different religion may get annoyed with you. 3rd - now there are important historical people (well, they are like other common units) which can boost up your civ's progress. For example: a great artist can create a masterpiece & it will grant a significant culture bonus to the city where it was made. Among other things are new civs, some civs have one of two leaders to choose, new buildings and units etc.

Overall - a great game which should be bought be every self respecting gamer.
