Gale - "This has been an interesting game to review for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I haven’t played the original game and have no experience whatsoever with the series. Secondly, I’m not much of a fan of Civilization, nor of the games that are inspired by this monolithian franchise. I was struggling with basics at first, only to see my efforts worthwhile later down the road. It has been a fairly decent romp, and I was introduced to a game that I will certainly occasionally be returning to. If you’re a fan of the genre, feel free to add 10% to the final score"
