Description: Civilization has the widest scope of any strategy game up to this point. Your eventual goal is to become the dominant civilization in the world, either by wiping out everybody else, or being the first to get a space ship to Alpha Centauri. The first step is to find a site for your first city - ideally, find a combination of grassland, hills and rivers. Once you have this you can develop military units and buildings.

" Ahh, the first Civilization game. So many fond memories of, "just one more turn" with this one. I remember well the first summer I had this game, and inserting the 5 1/4 floppies into the PC, and just being mesmerized by the game. Going back to it, I found the graphics more than a bit dated, but the game is still just as fun today as it was back then. Of course, I often turn to Civ IV instead today, but once in a while, it is good to relive the old days. Manufacturer: MicroProse Platform: PC "

" I can't say enough about the value of this game, both in terms of gameplay but also in terms of a genre launching title. The graphics on this game are a bit dated today, and the gameplay has been improved in the second installment, and further expanded and improved after. But the experience and effect of this first title is undeniable.

Official Civilization series (29 games items)

"1999 - 'Build an Empire to stand the test of time' - what an appropriate tagline, both for 'Civilization' as well as its future legacy. No other game has given us so much replay value, thanks to it's ultra-addictive 'one-more-turn' gameplay, random map generator, and 15 separate game AI's all competing against your civilization. It's shocking to think that Microprose management didn't believe in this game and wanted Sid Meier to concentrate on flight simulators and other projects. Even at rele"
