This game. This bloody game. This game has.. it.. it means so very much to me. I still have the original deluxe box set from 2001. This game has taught me about history, military command, creativity, humbleness, frustration and so much more. I cannot begin to imagine the true hours I have off of steam. Over a thousand, surely by now.

This game brought me and my new stepfather together almost 15 years ago. This game shaped my brain and how I see the world and history. I have made and submitted maps to the Civfanatics forums, contributed to full overhaul mods, and spent countless hours making faithful recreations of real geography in the glorious editor. All the Civilization games that came after pale in comparison.

This game was probably more of a parent and guide than my parents. Taught me about cooperation and systematic destruction of the god forsaken Aztecs.

A true 10/10, if you have the time to sit down for a 16 hour slugfest on Sid difficulty. From the music to the graphics to the civilopedia to all the content out there made lovingly by loving fans, this game has captivated me like no other in my entire life. The online community might be a little lacking these days, but the AI, in my opinion, does just fine. I cannot express enough how thoroughly I have and still do enjoy this game.

From humble beginnings, this game has risen to stand the test of time. I will play it until the very day that I die. Hats off, gents. A masterpiece reigns.

It's the year 2000.
All the remaining civilizations have nuclear weapons, and my civilization is caught in a massive war with the French.
I can tell they're about ready to take my capital, so I want to make peace with them.

This is the game that started my love of the Civilization series, and strategy games in general. I have fond memories sitting down and spending hours playing this game, even though I didn't fully understand it's mechanics at the time. As I grew older, this was my favorite game for a number of years. This game holds it's own in just about every key aspect, even compared to the newer installments of the Civilization series. Online multiplayer? You bet! Unique mechanics and smart AI for it's age? Yup! Good graphics for a game made in 2001? Heck yes! The replay value of this game makes even Civ 5 blush. I've been playing this game since 2006, and I still never get bored of it. Every scenario pans out differently, and no two games are ever quite the same. Even to this day, I prefer this over Civ 5. Maybe it's the nostalgia talking, but this is definitely my favorite Civ game of the lot.

8/10 - Old as ♥♥♥♥, but still amazing

This game has so much detail and strategy. The graphics have held up as well. You can grab this for a cheap price and play for weeks. So many options and choices.

Worth $15
