Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Civilization 3 is a great game but it's not for everyone. It is akin to chess and Risk but much more complex than either.If developing a civilization from a single tribe to a modern superpower sounds like your cup of tea then you should already have this game. You manage all aspects of your chosen civilization: War, diplomacy, trade, etc... .This is a turn based game, slow paced and not action oriented. If your looking for great graphics this is not your game. I think an active imagination is essential to the enjoyment of this and maybe a fondness for history. Patience and much thought must be put into playing this and some people don't enjoy that for entertainment. Understandably I suppose.

Personally this is my favorite game ever. If I could only take one game with me into eternity this would be the one. The replay-ability on this game is phenomenal. I have been playing it regularly since it was first released. For me thats its greatest strength. In this age of jaded video gamers (including me) its truly something for a game to remain so intriguing no matter how many times you've played it. There is so much dept its staggering. However, most of that dept is below the surface and isn't really needed until you start playing on Emperor difficulty or above. After 3 years of playing this I am still learning new things.

One aspect of Civilization that you should be aware of is the modifications people have made for it online. This extends the replay value even more so. The Warhammer mod for this game is excellent. If you want a fantasy setting with elves and dragons etc.. The Rise and Rule mod makes this epic game all the more so by adding hundreds of new technologies and units. There are far to many good mods to address here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Civilization III is finally Complete! November 23, 2004
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Civilization III Complete is the entire set all in one thorough package.

Civilization III (called "Civ3" by most of its fans) is the best turn based sim game of its type available. So what if it's turn based? Real-Time Shooters (called RTS by their fans) often don't even give you a chance to think before someone sneaks up behind you, and you're a piece of burnt toast. That's no fun. A Turn Based game can give you a chance to review your options before making a decision.

Of the World Building games, Civilization 3 holds the crown of leader of the pack. If you play games like Settlers, Pharaoh, Caesar III, Tropico, or older versions of Civilization, you owe it to yourself to check out this great game.

If you don't yet own Civ3, this is the perfect present. It includes all three of the packages - the original Civ3, the "Play the World" edition which adds the multiplayer option (including online and even play-by-mail!), and the "Conquests" disc which adds new world leaders and many great scenarios. The option to install just one, just two or all three sets of data was a great touch.

But if you already have Civ3, it's probably cheaper to buy just the "Conquests" add-on disc because it also has the "Play the World" data in the same package.

Recommended for anyone who wants to see what it would be like to own the world. Highly recommended for "sim" fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars You Don't Need Civ4 August 21, 2006
By Kevbo
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
In late 2002, I took a second job at a major electronics retailer and decided to use my employee discount on what looked like a cool game: Civilization III. That game changed my life... in the gaming sense. It was everything I ever thought a computer game should be: turn-based strategy with multiple avenues to test my ego and self-promoted genius. Above all features of Civ3, however, my most favorite was the customization of the game through the map editor and the wonderful online resources of the Civ community. (I've downloaded more Civ3 files than MP3s.) This allowed me to express my self-proclaimed genius with new rules, technologies, and units (and all the accompanying chronologies and requisites) at my discretion. Nothing could get any better, I had thought.

When Civ4 was being talked about, however, I couldn't imagine on what grounds they could improve - except perhaps making the game even more customizable and thorough. Well, you've already read about the differing features of the game: less micro-management, more diplomatic and trade features, new technology trees, enhancing popular mechanics found in previous Civ titles, and of course, going 3D with it all.

When playing Civilization IV, you sense an overwhelming POTENTIAL to be a really great game. In my mind, that potential has not been fulfilled, and I hereby advise you to purchase Civ3 Complete instead and forego Civ4 if you haven't chosen so already.

5.0 out of 5 stars Without question the best PC strategy game ever. April 9, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you have the patience level of a 12 year old, then this is probably not the best game for you. However, if you see the depth of a game like chess and appreciate games that require concentration and don't rely on eye candy as their selling point, then by all means buy this game. Civilization III does not require a high end graphics card to play because of its turn-based format. The graphics are still good, but this means that people with a variety of computer setups should have no trouble running it.

This game is addictive to say the least. The most appealing part of the game is that there is more than one way to win. You can win the game without firing a single shot or participating in a single war. You can win by expanding your civilization's culture, or through diplomatic means. Of course, if you are a warmongerer, you can certainly conquer the world the old fashioned way by crushing your enemies.

I have played all the other strategy type games for PC, including Age of Empires, Pharoahs, etc. and this game without QUESTION leaves them all cold. The incredible level of depth makes it as enjoyable the hundredth time as the first time.
