So this game is great for many reason. you can destroy countries you dislike, play a game 4 hours, and feel the might of running an empire. You can build monuments and cities from the past and present as well as buy extra ones from PS store. You can house great leaders, scientists, and people as well. There are 4 ways to win, Domminace(Kill Everybody) Money(complete money milestones), Technology(Build a civilization in space) and culture(Complete culture milestones). Each civilization starts out with a bonus as well which can put them at an advantage in one of these catagories like Egypt starts with a monument which helps ur culture, and the aztechs strt with a wealth of gold which helps ur economics. Ur civilization will increase in size and power if u keep up the good work. U go threw eras such as ancient, middle ages, industrial, and modern day. Each of these has its perks. Some of the bad things are the game at times is way too easy. also there is only so many times you can beat it and still feel satisfied. Besides the standerd gameplay the game has a few scenarios which pretty much just srtr u out at a different time in history and arnt really fun. The land itself only changes moderately itself and u may find urself bored of the land. All in all rent and buy!!!
Pros: Great gameplay, cool monuments, great feel of power
Cons: Repetitive at times too easy, and lack of change
I love this game so much i've kept it from game fly for about a month and finally decided to go to amazon and buy. Great game if you like stragegy games, the only thing is it is sorta like playing Monopoly each game takes forever but its freaking amazing!!!
