Comment: Ever since the first game that was released in 1991, the Civilization series have constantly developed a relatively simple turn-based strategy formulation. Create the foundations of cities, arranging infrastructure, preserve the community and renovate the military.

It always starts the same way. You are a settler, a man with a pointed stick in the middle of an unexplored world. The goal is to get through an either peaceful or less peaceful way, from the Stone Age to the modern times, while defeating pagan opponents. A battle that can take either a military, diplomatic or scientific form. A history lesson in game format.

So far, it is as it usually is in Civilization V. The playing field, however, now consists of hexagons and not squares as before. But the real difference in moving around in hexagons instead of squares is minimal. It gives us, however, certain strategic options when it comes to placing your warriors and distance units for an attack.

You can of course win in Civilization V by having a superior culture. This depends on what you focus on. If you have more food, you will get a larger population and much science provides access to multiple technologies. However, it has its limitations to aim for a cultural nation.

They have also done more to make Civilization V's various nations more different. The Russians, for example, produce a lot more and get a better exchange of certain raw materials, and the Japanese fight at full strength, even if its soldiers are injured.

Civilization has never been one of the strategy genre's big names - the kind of games that almost requires an education to understand. The series has always had a board game's immediacy. It says, however much that an encyclopedia has become a fixture in the series and over time the game series became larger and larger. It has made it easier to lose control when you're in a game round is forced to keep track of your empire spread over three continents. I myself have often let the computer take care of the little things in previous games, while I concentrated on the fun.

It's here that Civilization V, brilliantly takes place on the stage. "I simplify the series, without losing depth", the game would say if it could talk. "I'm doing this in two ways: by serving information more interesting and attractive and by making your actions more meaningful."

In Civilization V, you have fewer units to move around. Every action is therefore more significant. This is evident in the game's new combat system. Each square on the board has only room for one military unit. The location and layout of your army is far more important than size. It provides a welcome strategic depth to the game's combat system, unlike in previous games where it often ended up with two large stacks of units that tried to overthrow each other. Most of the time periods also have units which all have their respective weaknesses. So you create preferably a mixed army, so your cavalry will not be destroyed completely if the adversary has some spear fighters in reserve.

It is good that the base game in Civilization V is as alluring as it is the only one included. The interesting historical scenarios and playful modifications who peppered the previous games are namely gone. The scenarios are now bonuses for those who pre-booked the game, and it leaves a bad taste in your mouth when developers speculate that publish them later as downloadable content.

Finally, the music, arranged by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra also have a positive comment. Again, we are bombarded by classical music, but the quality this time is unusually high. Pieces with different tempos played depending on whether you are at war or not, and the various pieces are woven seamlessly into each other, so you can indulge in dreams of Victorian queens and misty war marches.

Easily accessible, but big, describes Civilization V quite well. It could be accused of losing the depth in the pursuit of clarity and simplicity, but I see it more as the series has been streamlined to bring out the essence and fun. Civilization Series latest strategy symposium is more relevant than ever.

Comment: This was a very fun game, but not very fun in the beginning though. It's a bit hard to learn how to play this game, that's why I didn't like this game in the beginning. I was about to quit, but decided to play a bit more. And once I had learned how to play the game completely, it got very addictive and was very fun. A game I can recommend even though it might be hard to learn to play.
