Well the demo was fun

by Jamie on 7/31/2008

The first three levels of difficulty are still pretty easy, but at the third, you know the AI doesn't have the same rules as you. They produce units at impossible rates, yet when you take the cities, there's nothing built in them. Creating 3 archer units in a turn when there's only a granary? Impossible. The AI can declare war on you by demanding something, but you can't do the same back. The game starts out VERY slow and by the end is very tedious, managing 30 cities. There's is a lot of graphic lag. The graphics stink, but the ps3 can't handle them? I'd recommend renting it, but wish I hadn't paid $60 for it. Read More

Water Down Version of Civilization

on 3/18/2009

Well I was very displeased with the fact that Sid Mieir took out all the good stuff in playing Civilization 4, this was a completely waterdown version of the game, as if it was targeted for little kids, I mean What the heck? Civ 4 was way better and I am really disappointed in PS3 and Sid Meier, to say the least bit. Very unhappy. Read More
