    Get Civilization III instead or even settle for Civilization II if you're short on cash.

    Rated on December 03, 2004 by afratnikov

    I was waiting for Civilization III to come out so, being a fan of Civilization II, I got this game to pass the time -- it ended up being a big mistake. It is probably not as bad a game as i rated it: ...

    CTP incorporated many revolutionary ideas. What other game lets you build orbiting space cities?

    Rated on August 03, 2007 by jodamn

    Civilization: Call to Power was revolutionary for its time. Not everyone fully appreciated the new playing mechanics, and the interface can be far from intuitive in places. However, CTP clearly overco...

    A new method of world domination.

    Rated on November 11, 2005 by excaliburblade

    I've almost always had Civilization and I never got Civilization II, but I did get this game. The difference between Call to Power and Civilization is a tremendous difference. The graphics have improv...

    one of the best in the series.

    Rated on March 26, 2006 by Achilles438

    This is one of the true reasons that I like the series of civilization. This was the first civilization game that I played, and I was immediately hooked on this game. The strategy is the part that I...

    This was the first Civilization game i played and it was the best. I think Civ 4 was dull compared with CTP.

    Rated on December 17, 2006 by Hallasnicov

    I think this is the best strategy game i ever tried, it has an awesome game-play. There are so many opportunities in this game. You can just keep playing and playing forever, and every time it's total...

    Far better then the mainstream Civ games, but sadly underappreciated.

    Rated on February 02, 2007 by Phaje

    This was the first Civilization game I ever played, and after having played every other one (aside from the first) I have to say it is the best, by far. I actually bought the other Civ games because I...
