Postcard Review: Droppin’ bombs Gandhi style

"Mohandas Gandhi is an asshole.

Who would have thought that a man known for peace would go to war because I claimed some land close to his? Is a batch of iron really worth the death and tax on two nations, Gandhi?

Well, even if historically inaccurate (Oda Nobunaga did not, in fact, drop an atomic bomb on Alexander the Great’s empire), Civilization V encompasses the life and possible death of your chosen civilization. The fight for land and resources can reach intense climaxes, whether you’re fighting with tanks or sword-and-board medieval knights. Even vying for diplomatic control or racing for the space age can wind up in atomic bombs being dropped and armies amassing on boarders. Each game is different every time."

- Lowell Bell (Civilization V, PC)
