First PC Civilization III Review
11:28 PM | Brian Rumsey | Comment on this story

As many Civilization fans probably know, on Tuesday, Firaxis Games released the latest installment in the series, Sid Meier's Civilization III, for Windows. Based on how highly this game was anticipated, reviews will surely soon begin cropping up in droves. In fact, at least one review has already been finished, by IGN.

There are a lot more things that we could talk about here but that would mean that you're sitting here reading instead of going out and trying out all the new features of the game for yourself. I know that there are those who believe that drastic changes to Civilization are an abomination but these are also the people who write us letters about how the latest Diablo II patch, which reduces a single skill's effectiveness by 4.5% on every other Thursday has completely castrated their 70th level barbarian. To them I say, get over it.
If IGN knows what they are talking about (and I'm guessing they do), Civilization III will be a worthy generation in this revered strategy series. This is good news for us Mac gamers, too, as Westlake Interactive is hard at work on the Mac port of Civilization III. Head on over to IGN and check out the review, unless you can't bear the thought of waiting a few more months for this game to hit the Mac.
