    If you're prepared to lose a small amount of your life, go ahead and get Civ II.

    The Good: Highly, highly addictive gameplay; Lots of cool wonders you'll be desperate to build before your opponents; Cool, complex combat system. The Bad: Graphics look bad even for 1996; Begins to wind down when you... Read Full Review
