One of the best turn based 4x strategy games out there. Civilization V is vastly improved by the expansions Gods & Kings and Brave New World so I would reccommend picking those up if you are considering Civilization V. This game is great at allowing you to expand your civilizations through any way possible whether it be by war, diplomacy, or your economy. The game doesn't stale as you head into the late game because of the World Congress and Idealogies you are able to pick up once you get closer to the Atomic Era. Idealogies does a great job of creating rivals and allies as you align with the people you share Idealogies with.
This game is relatively easy to run and can be accessible to most poeple. The multiplayer is fun if you can find friends to play with as it is more interesting playing with people you known. There are some faults with multiplayer as the game will often reload itself for no apparent reason.
Overall great game and is a must own for anyone that enjoes 4x strategy games.
