5.0 out of 5 stars If you loved Civ II, you have to try Civ V, November 23, 2012
This review is from: Sid Meier's Civilization V: Game of the Year Edition [Download] (Software Download)
I've been playing wargames since 1973. I played computer wargames whenever they started becoming available.

I never stopped playing Civ II, even through all the changes, updates, you name it. I always ended up coming back to Civ II, just because it was such a well done, and fun game.

I liked Civ V when it came out, and to me, it had much of the same feel as when I was playing Civ II for the first time, but with many improvements. It had some technical issues, however, at first, and for the size of game I usually play, it was unplayable to the end.

After some time passed (over a year I think) I went back and patched the game, and tried again. The technical issues were fixed. The game was not only playable, but as addicting as Civ ever was.

Now they have the Gods and Kings expansion, I was hesitant that they ruined a good thing...

Not a chance! I first tried out the expansion w/out the spies option. Just religion. Loved it. Religion adds yet another dimension to the rock-paper-scissors Civ equation, and even more fun and convolution to running your empire. Then I went ahead and added in the spies function, and love how they have changed their approach to spying. Absolutely awesome.

This is a fun, addicting game, at least for old-timers like me, who like a thinking, strategy, turn-based game. This game has finally ensured that my old Civ II, which I still love and respect, will end up sitting on the shelf forever.

Get it. Play it. Love it.
