What Gamespot Users have to say about Civilization II

  • Review Score:10

    An instant classic since my sister's boyfriend brought it over all those years ago...

    Civilization 2 joins a very select group of games that I find to be classic. Tetris, Pac-Man, Final Fantasy, and now Civilization 2. I've spent hours, conquering random maps, exploring uncharted new lands, and crushing ... Read Full Review

    The sequel to Civilizations One

    The second game to the Civilizations line of video games brings many new benefits that have not been seen in the game prior to this one. The biggest upgrade would have to be the graphics to the game as they are much bet... Read Full Review

    Ultimate Addictive Game

    I'm STILL playing it after all these years. Simple yet highly addictive. I like better than Civ 3 which seems to have fairness issues in single player mode. This is the best in the series & THE STANDARD for all turned ba... Read Full Review

    A timeless addictive classic!! It is a solid sequel within the Civ Series.

    You would never think that a turn-based strategy game would be so addictive! But after the first Civilization, it seemed that Sid Meier knew what he was doing. With Civ II sporting the same attributes as the first, it ... Read Full Review

    Addictive, easy to play, hard to play truly well. Superb!

    When I first played this game on my uncle's Windows 95 at the tender age of 4 this game amazed me. I was unfamiliar with the original Civilization, and so it took me a while to get the swing of it, under careful supervi... Read Full Review

    Strategy gaming at its best! Clear your calendar...

    Civilization II was the first game in the series for me. I actually found it at a local thrift store for $2. Being a fan of strategy games since a child, I couldn't wait to get home and try this out. I played 9 hours str... Read Full Review

    Freakin' Awesome Game That Is Still Fun Today

    When I got Civ 3, there were two copies of this game in the box. I figured I'd play Civ 2 then Civ 3 so I could enjoy both and I ended up liking Civ 2 more. You can spend hours upon hours trying different strategies ... Read Full Review

    This classic is still fun to play today. It should go down in the annals of gaming history as the greatest ever!

    I'll give an uncharacteristic overall summary style review, as this game is 10 years old at the writing of this review. Few games have stood the test of time like Civilization II has. The customization, the scenarios... Read Full Review
