I played this game way back in 2001. The problem I faced was at that time, I had an ancient Pentium II 300Mhz PC. So you can imagine how I felt as the game was nearly unplayable for me.

Coming into the present time of 2014, I was glad that Steam offered Civilization III for sale. I quickly bought it and played on my modern top of the line laptop. It sure brought back the memories.

This game can be considered a classic in the turn based strategy (TBS) genre. TBS fans would most definitely love this game despite the dated graphics. I must also like to add that the Steam version of the game works perfectly fine in Windows 8.1. A TBS haven to say the least!

"When I thought I was out, they pulled me back in, and it's now sunrise"

No seriously, as a huge fan of the serires my whole life, Civilization III is quite possibly the best out of them all, and for several reasons

10/10 buy it

Really a great game. I enjoy playing past the 2050 end game and letting the entire world build up. Then having all out war =). Thats when the game becomes really fun for me. Its a great price for a great game.

This game is really fun! Good for people who like Axis and Allies, Settlers of Catan, and really long board games. I have already logged 16 hours in 4 days.

Pretty good, but you should just dish out some cash and get one of the newer ones. Still very good game.

I hate this game and I hope the developers die in a fire.
THE COMBAT SYSTEM SUCKS! NOTHING ABOUT IT WORKS!
I attack an AT gun with some marines, and the AT gun wins!
Die in a fire, firaxis. Die in a fire.

Personal Experience: This is the first Civilization game I've ever played and before I knew it I was getting angry sitting at school thinking about how the Mayans were advancing on Moscow. I finally get home and load it up to push the attack to get flaked and then have Moscow taken.

10/10 Would buy for loads of fun.

I used to play this game every day for several years, and I still do from time to time. In all, a masterpiece of a game, and for the low price of $4.99 for the core game and all of the expansion packs, its nearly irresistible!

I played this when I was like... really young I had no Idea what I was doing. I loved it.
I played this in school for social studies. I had the upper hand having played this before. I dominated everyone. I loved it.
I got it on steam. I played it for a day straight. I loved it still.

This game will last forever, however my love for this game is a mixture of honest nostalgia and fanstastic gameplay that does not ruin fond memories.

Get Civ 5, or 6 or whatever it's at, and leave me to play my civ 3.

Story: 7/10 (Very linear but thats ok. Historic.)
Gameplay: 9/10 (Repetitive sometimes.)
Presentation: 6/10 (Old, and not really great.)
Soundtrack: X/10 (Hmm?)
Replayability: 10/10 (Keeps me coming back.)
