So is a game we’d want for the 360?
And what’s new in the franchise?
© 2010 Aaron Klein
You start with a tiny group of settlers and dreams of a global empire. How you get there is up to you. Do you grab pointy sticks and conquer your neighbors?
Do you rapidly expand to control strategic resources in the hillsides? Do you come to the aid of neighboring city states when they are being bullied by your rivals? Do you construct libraries and universities to learn the secrets of space travel?
In Civilization you chronicle the story of your own empire.
Civilization is known as a 4X game. The Xs stand for the general tactics used to win the game, namely to explore the map, expand to new territory, exploit raw materials and exterminate the opposition. Its turn-based gameplay emphasizes strategy over twitch reflexes.
