THE BEST GAME EVER!!!!!!!!!

Summary: This game is so fun and if you get this game get the gods and kings expansion pack because that pack adds all the stuff from other civ games . like spy's and new stuff like religion but the only problem is that you need a really good computer to play it.
Summary: If you want to try this game just download the demo on the Steam Store! That is how I got addicted and with the Game of the Year Edition you get around $40 of DLC for free!!! Very friendly user interface and can play for hours!
Summary: what a worthless attempt to be better then Civ 4. Even with all of these so called "extra" civs there are still less then the Civ 4 without DLC. And just look at the non-year edition and i shouldn't even have to explain why i gave this a poor score compared to Civ 4. To sum it up, dumb down, frustrating AI, and not much content compared to Civ 4.
A fantastic update to Civilization; certain game elements are missed

Summary: This is a fantastic update to Civilization 4. The graphics are amazing and the AI no longer makes ridiculous decisions. The new map tile layout is also great. I really miss the religion and cultural borders concepts of Civ 4, however.
Summary: This is a great game. I have played civ games since i was little and this is by far the best. the new combat system gives war an actual technique other than stack and attack. great graphics, all gameplay has been made more seamless and more realistic. i thought civ 4 couldnt get any better but this has went way past it. Worth getting for anyone who likes strategy games.
Summary: In depth, fun game with a lot to do! I especially liked all the choices and countries, a lot of diversity to choose from here! It has been awhile since I had played any Civilization games so I jumped on the chance to try this one and was glad I did. It installed without any problems and didn't take too long, than updated not much longer, and I was ready to go. I can easily see why this got game of the year.
Summary: This was a great Strategy Game Period. . Simply put: This is the greatest strategy game in recent years and the best computer game I have ever played. I can't recommend a game more than this. This is a huge, complex game -- that is what makes it great. If you had played previous versions of Civilization, you will understand the gameplay mechanics, but will find the interface has been revamped and the complexity has increased.
A reconsideration of the title only changes my opinion slightly

Summary: I bought the original version of Civilization V back in 2010. I gave it, to my reluctant chagrin, a one-star review. I've been playing Civilization since the first, and this latest iteration did not even rise to the flawed level of Civilization III, much less be near the near-perfection gem of Civilization IV.
Summary: My husband spends HOURS on this game. It's very strategic and a "brain power" type of game-not a fast action shoot 'em up game. I have not played it myself but in my husband's words: "addictive, mesmerizing.
