Civilization IV Examined
8:33 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Applelinks recently posted a review of Civilization IV, the latest in the popular world building strategy series. This incarnation of Civilization adds 3D graphics, religion, and a variety of other upgrades to the signature formula. Applelinks gave Civilization IV a perfect score of 5 out of 5.

From the review:

Yes, religion. You had to bring religion into it, didn't you, with your multi-faceted design? True, you've set it up so that no one religion is different from another, but still, we're free to establish state religions, build temples and monasteries, and even send out proselytizers to spread our views to the other civs in order to foster better relations. But what if I don't want a more complex worldview, Sid? Did you think about me?

No. You're never satisfied. Never willing to leave things just as they are. Don't deny it! It shows in everything—the Science Research tree that gets more and more detailed, and don't think I missed your little digs at me! "Liberalism: leads to Communism." Ha! You thought you could make it up to me by expanding and detailing each discovery, eliminating some of the obvious dead-ends that came up in Civ III, but I see what you're trying to do—steal every moment of my time for yourself.
