Excerpt: "You can even create canals, such as the Panama Canal or Suez Canal. Canals are minor aspect as there are so few, but can be a major win for those who control it. The only drawback is that the creation of canals are late-game goals, and not something mid-game. The reason this is a bit disappointing, is that you don’t get to spend much time relishing in the advantages it brings, making it feel like an afterthought. But is pretty cool seeing these appear on the map."
