Civilization IV Reviews
8:18 AM | Anthony Wang | Comment on this story

Civilization IV is on target for a release sometimes this year and rave reviews keep on popping up. This time, Game Helper and Game Club Central offer their reviews of this turn-based strategy game developed by Firaxis Games and being ported to the Mac by Aspyr.

From Game Helper:

Donít let those two little complaints stop you though! If youíve ever been a fan of the franchise, Civilization IV will definitely tickle the olí pickle. A lot of work clearly went into creating so much new content without complicating, or more importantly, compromising, gameplay. The end result: a title thatíll warm the heart of any Civ vet and siren those with any interest in turn-based strategy right on in.
From Game Club Central:
Civilization IV is a great game for folks who are looking to get into the realm of strategy gaming and for those already familiar with the series. Whatever route you choose to take to victory, this game is prepared to take you there with stunning graphics and addictive game play, so fix yourself that next pot of coffee, turn the volume down low, and before you know it the sun will be rising and you very well may be late for work.
Overall, Game Helper gave Civilization IV an 8.8 of 10.0, and Game Club Central gave a 9.1 of 10.0. Expect Civ IV to hit store shelves and your hard drive this Spring.
