Wondering if Civilization IV will be right for you? A set of Civilization IV reviews courtesy of 1UP, Actiontrip, and 2024 and Gamesradar may help you make that decision. All four reviews praise the game as yet another Sid Meier classic.
From 1UP Review (9.0 out of 10.0):
And therein lies the crown jewel of Civ 4: the new combat mechanics. Instead of providing straight attack/defense values for your units, the game relies on a deeper RPG-style experience system. Your units can specialize and improve in all sorts of tasks as they level up, such as the amount of collateral damage they inflict and bonuses they receive when fighting in specific environmental conditions. This system conveys a real sense of attachment to your units; you'll definitely feel...From Actiontrip (93 out of 100):
The great thing about Civ 4 is that in addition to looking great, the interface is extremely intuitive and easy to use (that being its primary purpose), so really, the game lets you be as detailed or as superficial as you choose. Everything can be automated and yet if you want to truly master the craft of playing this game...From 2024 (9.5 out of 10.0):
To begin with, the most immediately noticeable change is in the graphics engine. Being no longer isometric, CivIV features smoothly-scrolling and -zooming 3D game maps. The units and buildings all look great and fit on the map appropriately--something that is usually missing from other games. As your cities grow and expand, you will see the improvements on the game map. Not only is this wonderful eye candy...From Gamesradar (92 out of 100)
Nintendo has Mario, PlayStation has Tomb Raider and PC has Civilization. It's a platform mascot, the one title that keeps coming back again and again in subtly different forms, yet retains its essential Civilization-ness, even 14 years after it first appeared.Please follow the links below to read the reviews.
