If you've ver played any of the civilation games you'll know that this series is one of the most tried and true gameplay formulas out there. I'm mainly going to focus on the gameplay imrovements over the previous games here. One of the best parts about Civ 3 is the new borders system. Instead of having your borders based on a set amount around each city, it is generated by a new factor called you culture. Another great improvement are the resources and the trade system. In the trade system you can know trade just about anything for anything else. The resources have been completely overhauled. You now need certain tactical resources to produce different unit types, such as iron for swordsmen. This has been a pretty brief look at some of the things that I like about civ 3. If you want to know more check out the gamespot review. All you really need to know though is that this is one of the best games ever made. It will pull you ina and not let you go until you are done.
