Test of Time is basically one of my favourite Civilization games
of all time, and i will explain why. 1. It has not two but four different styles of play, Sci-fi Or Fantasy Themed, and of course Original, and now a new Alternate Original Version that pits you against aliens as well as the usual. 2. The availability of hotseat as well in other civ games, but hotseat for me is further made useful as you can play any of the four gametypes with 1 or more friends. 3. Even though the game revolves around Four gametypes, it's just great, as each is more than just a different texture and sound pack, it's almost like a whole other civ game. Though the diplomacy system in Test of Time is rather Dull, and at best, half-assed, with a sort of linear way that if you refuse a computer's deal, you go to war immediately, which is rather annoying especially if you want to play just to have fun rather than take everyone out. And like I think with every great game, the fact that the creator's never included mod tools is a fact that usually makes me want to cry, or at least shake my head, due to the fact that Firaxis Games really doesn't care about making the game last longer. All in all, the good out-weigh the bad in this case, and I give it 5 Stars, cause it may be old, and the graphics may be horrid, I just believe that if something has Features rather than Graphics for the best thing the game has, then it's much better.
