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 RTS genre. RTS 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 RTS haven to say the least!

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.

I laughed when I saw germany come up to me with one archer. then I relized inside that archer was 19 more archers that he had stacked up.

11/10 becuase sometimes all of your units turns into Elvis himself!

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.

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.

Where you're going... You need roads... Lots of roads... Roads everywhere... And stacks, lots of those... Stack your army high and lose them all to one caveman who is secretly a card counting, gambling professional.

I love Civilization and I started Playing at CIV IV with all expansions. I now also have CIV V and all expansions. I had Civ II on PS but didn't really get into it. I got Civ III just to go back and see how the older games played and to be honest I haven't spent much time, but it is interesting to say the least.

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.)
