    One of the best strategy games of all time.

    I have been playing Civ 3 for over ten years now. I still play it. In my opinion it has to go down as one of the greatest strategy games of all time. It is the spiritual as well as literal successor to Civ 2 - still a lo... Read Full Review

    The King of all turn based strategy games

    This is just one of those games that you can spend hours playing without realizing that football season has come and gone. It does absolutely nothing poorly. It's a very well put together game with a charming visual styl... Read Full Review

    Great game that balances all aspects. By far the best in the Civilization series.

    This is an old game, but the graphics were great for the time, and semi-decent today. Yes, I selected difficult, but it's supposed to be. I'm a huge fan of PC strategy games, and this is one of my favs. Unfortunately, I ... Read Full Review

    Civilization III is one of those games in a series that really highlights everything that people love about it. Graphics: Good for its time, although time has not been so good to it in return. But the look is clean, a... Read Full Review

    This superb time-waster will evoke every conceivable human emotion in you, and you will enjoy every minute of it!

    Civilization III somehow continues to be insanely addictive and immensely enjoyable, despite the fact that it looks like a Facebook flash game. Once you get into this game, it will keep you planted in your chair; clickin... Read Full Review

    Civilization 3 Review

    From the beginning to the end, the overall feel of Civilization III is of a polished, well constructed, attention to detail game. The interface of this game goes along with it's overall theme very well, but can be hard t... Read Full Review

    Addicting anti-Alzheimer's game typical of all of Sid Meier's games!

    I have played the entire Civilization series since II and this is by far the most enjoyable to me even out-classing the fourth edition. It is by far my post played game and I am a person who bores very easily of a game ... Read Full Review

    BEST GAME IN SERIES!!!

    Civilization 3 is a great game, then couple that along with the two other packs and HOURS of Addicting gameplay, you got a winner. Civ is a game where you choose a civ from history, but make your own history. Are you a d... Read Full Review
