<i>Civilization</i> is a turn-based war game/strategy game. In it, you begin a civilization of your choice of 18, including the Germans, Japanese, Aztecs, Babylonians, Americans, and Romans. As you play, you build cities and army units with the money you make from mines and city taxes. You add buildings to your cities to make them and your civilization greater. Also, you can build one of several Wonders of the World, each with their own advantages. The Great Wall forces other civilization to make peace with you, while the Pyramids give you all the food you'll need to run all your cities. There are two ways you can win <i>Civilization</i>, one way is to destroy all your opposing Civilizations, and rule the world. The other way is to make it so far into the future, that you build a starship and travel to Alpha Centauri.

Graphics leave something to be desired, cities as well as units appear as squares over a gridded layout map. Attacks show the attacking unit moving and colliding with the opposing unit. But the city screen boasts better graphics. You have the option to view your cities, as well as each building within them, including Wonders, in fairly good detail.

Gameplay is EXTREMELY addictive! I guarantee that when you play this game and get good at it, you'll be hooked for a long time. Because 5 levels of difficulty offer a more challenging game all the time, you'll never get bored.

I give <i>Civilization</i> a 7 out of 10, and highly recommend it to strategy buffs.
