While waiting for some of the exciting new games to come out, I decided to pull this old favorite out - just to see if it's still as enjoyable as I remember it.... It's been quite some time since I last played this one (and a computer or two ago as well) but I must say this is still one of my old favs. If you're a fan of the Civilization Series and haven't picket this one up yet, do so, I highly recommend it. It's a got a pretty strong learning curve, but once you understand the basics - you'll be hooked. With great replay value (there are a number of different factions with differing agendas) It's an oldie - but still a goodie.
