5 out of 5
Turn based game from a great series
When Sid Meier came with the original Civilization
game, the whole world went nuts for it. This fantastic turn based strategy game soon made a cult that numbers in millions, even to this day. Then came Civilization 2
and copies were literally torn off shelves from fans in a hurry to get them the day it came out. They weren't disappointed. The game is as good as the original, with a few modifications and improvements. The view is not top down any more, but isometric
, which will continue with Civilization 3
, and there are more units and towns to play with. There are two paths to victory (and bonus points to the score) in this game: to be the last civilization remaining or to build a spaceship and reach Alpha Centauri
before any of the other civilizations (also known as the Space Race). So, play as you will. If you watch closely, there will even be a few giggles while you play. The graphics are also much improved, with much richer textures and more detail in terrain and objects. Civilization is a fantastic series and Civilization II is definitely a fine specimen. Have fun!

Veni, Vidi, Vici
You will start with a little settler and your goal is to conquer all the world. Be careful, because you are not alone, other civilizations could be more advanced than you. Here it is the second chapter of Sid Meier's Civilization saga. Improved in graphics and somehow in gameplay. This turn based strategy game will give you the ability of leading an ancient civilization from its begin to the future, conquering the enemies, discovering new exciting technology, growing with economy. A complete game that the strategy lovers should not miss.
