It's called Civilization IV for a reason. You'll be sitting at your computer for so long the doctors'll have to stick you with an IV.

I was always into strategy games but I'd never tried a Turn-based one before. After trying this one though, I'm addicted.

Fair warning:this game is not for the faint hearted. The experience comes primarily from the involvement with the game over time. A good civ game is not one that lasts a couple of hours, but one that lasts eons where pretty much all countries have discovered nukes and robots and are on the verge of destroying the entire world. I will put my hand up and say I havn't played a proper game yet but coming from the earlier civ games, this is a thing of beauty.

I've never played a Civ game until now. It's fun but seriously France?! We were BEST FRIENDS and then you randomly decide to declare war on me?! I don't know how often I'll be able to play this game. I can't handle all the betrayal.
