Civilization has always been one of the great turn based strategy games. Unless you have complete misconceptions (like mike_r_cab) and don't really have a taste for games are the standard bearer games for the turn based strategy genre, then this is a must play.
Hi. I have this game and I love playing it, though I always lose. But the important thing is having fun, right? So I'm not mad at myself if I lose. Everyone has their days, right? I want to congratulate 2K Games on behalf of all fans of this game, they've done a great job on this game. Really, really good job guys!
