! Introduction !
Sid Meier’s Civilization V is a 4X turn-based strategy game developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K Games and Aspyr Media. The game was released on Microsoft Windows and macOS in 2010, and later on Linux in June 2014. It is the 5th installment in the Sid Meier’s Civilization franchise that has sold over nine million copies worldwide.
! Gameplay !
Civilization V is challenging and super fun, but it never gets repetitive or boring. You start of by leading a prehistoric civilization into the future with the help of research, exploration, diplomacy, and military conquest. You can choose from a total of 43 cultures and assume the role of its leader, where each one has two unique combat units and buildings. Over 6050 years, your small settlement must grow & achieve the victory conditions to win or survive until the end of the game turns, after which the civilization with most game points wins. The end victor is decided on many factors such as population, culture, and technological advancement.
Victory in the game can be attained by focusing on scientific research and building a spaceship to win the space race. Or you may focus on diplomacy and subdue other civilizations. Otherwise, world domination is possible, but other options are more straightforward than this. In the core gameplay, over the turns, the player has to manage civilian and military tasks. The civic duties include finding new cities, expanding, spreading religion, and building the most magnificent human-made wonders. On the other hand, the military can be used to raise an army & battle to take over other civilizations.
Civ V encourages tactical gameplay after they renovated its warfare mechanism. You cannot stack your troops into a single tile, unlike its precedents, thus allowing different types of strategies to face your enemy and allow flanking. Now each combat unit occupies one unique space; Therefore, unit positioning is very crucial in Civ V as it’ll require a bit of planning, although it might get tedious to move around each unit in a large force individually. Once you capture a city, you can place a puppet ruler who will rule in your stead, thus freeing you from governing it and focusing more on warfare.
Unlike previous games, the game now wholly divides the map into hexagonal tiles instead of squares, and not only cities defend themselves by firing at enemies, but also, the town expands one or two tiles at a time.
