Civilization fans can enjoy a quick console game with lots of challenge and fun.
The technology tree is nicely done with plenty of options to choose from, although there are a few technologies that, when discovered, can catapult you to a domination victory with ease. This could be balanced better, but overall, it is still a good challenge, especially trying to win in another manner.
The online play, although I haven't played it a lot, has been fun and enjoyable when I have played. The ability to play a match online with friends is a very nice touch and the ranked matches leaves unending hours of game play for all.
It is a game well worth picking up for anyone who enjoys the Civilization line of games.
