What Gamespot Users have to say about Sid Meier's Civilization III

  • Rating:4.3

    Could have been good, but ends up being another crappy strategy game

    I bought this game with fairly high expectations. Everyone said it was a great game and Gamespot gave it a 9.2. Things get bad from the start. Gameplay is tedious and all too often your cities fall in anarchy, making th... Read Full Review

    For its time, absolutely brilliant. Still a landmark strategy game.

    I love this game. If you measured my favorite games by sheer playing time, this would measure up as one of my most loved, if not my all-time favorite. Sometimes you don't want action, you want to think a little more. ... Read Full Review

    The Civilization series is back again with another excellent game that just improves the turn-based RPG type of game. In Civilization III like previous Civilization games you pick a major civilization such as the USA, F... Read Full Review

    The 3rd game in a powerful RTS series

    I'm not a big fan of RTS's, but this game is still fun. Not much has changed from past Civilization's, but it got a graphics up grade along with a few other to make this game different. The Game play is nothing new fr... Read Full Review

    This game is far beyond Civilization IV which is only rated by its damn stupid graphics...

    This is a game, that brings unlimited addiction to some, beside confusion and bore to others, although IV has improved graphics and maths, it can't really seem to get a player addicted as much. I have spent over 200 hou... Read Full Review

    So sleep is optional now.

    If you've never played this type of game, I advice you not to because it will literally suck the time out of your life. I picked this game up and I have been addicted to it ever since. It is such a challenging game but o... Read Full Review

    Will eat your life.

    Civ III will eat weeks or possibly months of your life, weeks or months that you can’t get back, so proceed with caution. This is just one of those games that you can spend hours playing without realizing that football s... Read Full Review

    Addicting, yet so very frustrating.

    This is one of those games that you are either good at or plainly outloud suck at. When you start to play it, you will become absolutly addicted. And it is not a bad thing if you are, because this game is really, really ... Read Full Review
