    Top Ten PC games of all time.

    One of the most enthralling games ever released for the PC. Vast improvements were made from the first Civilization. More civilizations, units, wonders, and much, much smoother gameplay. It has bee...

    I feel like a true Imperatrix.

    Simply great, I love this game, the difference with other is the reality of it. The time lime, the movements by squares...all that gives a charm some kind of true strategy to it, not like other game...

    It's impossible to think in a turn-based strategy game and forget Civilization II. It's the best. No more. No less.

    It's impossible to think in a turn-based strategy game and forget Civilization II. It's undoubtedly the best in the genre, and even many years after its release there are lots of fans still playing. ...

    A must play game. Hallmark for its genre.

    By the time we already have Civilization IV available and also willing to play the first expansion - Warlords - I prompted myself to drop a review about a previous version. Civilization II was a hug...

    The best of the lot. Better than Civ III and IV.

    Civ2 hit close to perfection 10 years ago. The gameplay was complex enough yet remained accessible. Oh they could use some management improvements like the ability to group units or improve the AI...

    A wonderfully addictive game with many compelling features. A great way to get started on the strategy genre.

    Rated on July 25, 2012 by KalevD

    To start; Civilization II was the first "modern" PC game I ever owned. I saw a demo of the game on display in a local computer store so I gave it a try. I was only about 11 years old and by the time m...

    The Greatest Game of All Time

    Rated on August 16, 2006 by JimmyMcNitties

    Civilization II out of any game out there, has consumed most of my time and energy, and in reflection, I would do it again in a heartbeat. I have played easily over 2000+hours over a 5 + year period a...

    A true classic. Has aged very well.

    Rated on November 26, 2009 by GunSmith1_basic

    This game is incredible. As you build, explore, and conquer you will find that the game plays like a chess, only much more free-form, loose, and with so many factors and variability that gives the ga...

    Civ II has without a doubt, the most addictive gameplay of any game out there.

    Rated on August 27, 2006 by Seraphim591

    I just stopped playing Civ IV a few hours back, and switched to Civ II. Want to know why? Read ahead. Civilization II isn't just any game, it was a classic the minute it came out, and it still is one...
