Graphics 5 out of 10

The graphics leave much to be desired but once you lock horns with an evil Mongolian warmonger who is allied with the French, graphics become the least of your worries. Also there is nothing more satisfying than hearing the war cry of a freshly built nuclear arsenal ruthlessly raining down on an unforboding enemy.

Music and Sound 4 out of 10

The same 4 tracks keep repeating over and over, and you only get a change of music once per era. If it wasn't for the awesome nuclear missile sound I would have given it a two.

Game Challenge 8 out of 10

Depending on which skill level you chose-chieftain, warlord, prince, king, and empower (1-5 respectively), the challenge gets harder. However the simple dynamics of the computer allow it to think up little more strategy than BUILD UNIT AND SEND TO NEAREST THREAT. Nothing a human mind can't conquer.

Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10

Personally there is nothing more rewarding than to see a fledgling civilization rise from a single settler and conquer the world with the power of the atom. Then again it is similarly rewarding to see your civilization reach the stars with a well crafted shuttle.

Frustration

The computer has many unfair advantages that you don't such as: 1) Any unit of the computer can be a diplomat. 2) The computer players are "given" wonders. 3) The computer can produce an endless supply of settlers.

Replayability 10 out of 10

A different world every time, and always the situation where you stop and think "wow I did it!"or "oh no, I lost." Either way you will be thoroughly surprised every time.

Game Value 10 out of 10

When this game first came out it was 70.00. Now you can get it for 20.00. One things for sure when you first land your civ in the in-game anals of history, this game will surely join your anals of gaming classics.

Overall 9 out of 10

This game will have its moments were you want to take a sledge to it and it will have its times when you think that this game is simply well crafted and wonderful. While the graphics and sound could use some tweaking I guarantee that this game will keep you up late into the night with that one thought ringing ever-so clearly "one more turn...."
