Normally I might not link to my work on other sites here, but in this case I think it’s warranted.
Those of you who follow me on twitter or the like are probably aware that I’ve spent the last two weeks with my head so far up Civ V’s arse that I probably wouldn’t have noticed if an asteroid were about to hit us and Morgan Freeman had become the US President.
Unlike a ‘normal’ review we decided that Civ V really needed the fine-toothed-comb treatment. So, the epic (3200 word) in-depth review was done in a rather different format – it’s got a sort of panel-show back-and-forth style between myself and Joab Gilroy as we discuss every aspect of Civ V we can.
The review is up now at GameArena. Check it out!
Oh, and for those who read my article about the cartoony style of strategy games intruding where it’s not wanted? Not an issue with Civ V. Hell, the leaders even talk in their native language, with subtitles down the bottom. Colour me very, very pleased.
