Civilization V

PC Magazine
6 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Given the series' stellar pedigree, Civilization V would have to work feverishly to be disappointing. But this highly simplified chapter in the Civ saga tries its best.
  • Pros: Addictive as ever. Some excellent game-play additions.
  • Cons: Feels far more simplistic and less rich than previous Civilization titles. Changes to major mechanics will require significant readjustment time for veterans.

Civilization V Gods & Kings Expansion Pack

1 June 2012
  • Excerpt: There are some basic rules when it comes to making a game’s sequel. It has to have everything the previous game had, plus more, with prettier graphics, richer gameplay, and fresh ideas. That is why when Firaxis released Civilization 5, fans realised they had screwed up. The game’s graphics were indeed prettier, gameplay mechanics were improved, but something was definitely missing.

Civilization 5

Cheat Happens
28 September 2010
  • Excerpt: For the last few years, there's been a not-so-quiet war brewing over the Civilization series. On one side; the strategy series' purists craving the depth and formula they've known for years. On the other, the fans brought in by the series' first console iteration; Civilization Revolution , which featured a much more streamlined and approachable interface for casual fans.

Test : Civilization V - Brave New World

Gamekult.com
19 July 2013
  • Summary: Il aura fallu trois passages à la caisse mais ça y est, Civilization V est enfin un héritier plus ou moins digne des accomplissements de ses ancêtres. La révolution des victoires diplomatiques et culturelles les met enfin sur un pied d'égalité relatif avec la conquête militaire, permettant de sortir les pacifistes de leur habituelle torpeur en fin de partie.
  • Pros: Des parties plus homogènes, Victoires culturelles et diplomatiques améliorées, L'ajout des routes commerciales, Des interactions réussies avec la religion et l'espionnage, Toujours plus de civilisations, de bâtiments, d'unités, etc, L'audace de Venise
  • Cons: Des soucis d'équilibrage non négligeables, Ergonomie pas toujours réussie, Toujours des soucis d'I.A., Ça commence à faire cher le jeu

Shaun White Snowboarding

Tom's Games
18 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Sentiment de liberté totale, sensations grisantes, Shaun White bénéficie de qualités intrinsèques évidentes. Mais proposer un monde ouvert ne suffit pas à rendre l'expérience pleinement satisfaisante. Au-delà du gameplay, c'est la structure même du jeu qui est bancale, l’intérêt se trouvant donc forcément entravé par ce côté permissif.
  • Pros: Des sensations grisantes, La diversité des montagnes, Le sentiment de liberté, Une véritable culture du snowboard
  • Cons: Le manque évident de challenge, Une réalisation pas top, Une structure de jeu bancale, Maniabilité trop rigide, Aucun changement climatique
