Sid Meiers’ games have been around for a long time and have evolved and improved over the many years.

You start at the dawn of man, just mere cavemen who have just discovered fire and communicate with grunts. You live in caves, hunt, forage, discover fire and reproduce. It’s up to you to get from this primitive and rather embarrassing state, to the super power of the world, which has space technology and nukes at your disposal.
It’s your job to discover technology and keep your people safe from other tribes. You take on one of history’s greatest leaders and battle, negotiate and explore your way through the world. You can focus on economic power and peace - or my favourite - military might, where by you crush your opponents and take their lands for yourself. Any path is possible just as long as you continue to expand and improve your tribe.
When you first enter Sid Meier's Civilization you may be intimidated by the steep learning curve. There is so much to take in and do, but thankfully there is a comprehensive tutorial. It helps a great deal for those people playing it for the first time and experienced players can choose to skip it.
The musical score is great and the graphics are good. The expansion packs include The Warlords pack, which include new ways to win by military power, six new civilizations, ten new leaders and eight additional scenarios. Beyond The Sword pack includes, ten new civilizations, sixteen new leaders, eleven new scenarios and much more
So with this lot, you are certainly going to be kept busy up until Christmas, and at £4.99 you are definitely getting value for money!
