Civilization IV Reviewed
7:58 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Gaming Excellence recently posted a positive review of the PC version of Civilization IV, Firaxis' latest episode in the well known turn based strategy series. Civ IV offers a new 3D graphics engine, the inclusion of religion, and a variety of other goodies for fans to enjoy. Gaming Excellence gave Civ IV a 9.4 out of 10.

From the review:

The graphics in Civilization IV have undergone a complete upgrade and represent a great improvement over the visuals in Civilization III. The ability to zoom the map in and out to extreme distances is a nice feature, and lets the user choose how he or she wishes to view the game. The detail on each individual unit model is vastly improved and makes for a more visually appealing experience. Also, units are now displayed as groups, typically in threes, which is a neat addition. The game’s introductory and ending video are also very nicely done and make it that much more attractive. Another really neat feature is the addition of short in-game videos that play when your civilization completes the construction of a wonder.
The Mac version of Civ IV recently reached Alpha status and should be available from Aspyr Media in June.
