3. Civilization V
Yes civilization grows and so is the vervion. The Civilization V is the series of Civilization, ofcourse that’s obvious hehe. Let’s go on about the game.
The game was developed by the Firaxis Games company it was released in 2010 for both windows and Mac Os.
Ok so basically the game a complete strategy game in which the player that means you will be leading a civilization from the pre historic times and take them all the way in to the future on the generated map, what you will learn in the game apart from the strategy is that you have to win the wars by going through lots of research, diplomacy, exploration, rconomic developoment, and government and military conquest.
In the earlier series of the civilization the game was build on sqare tiles but this time it is different, this time its based on hexagonal squares. The combat system has been overhauled, removing stacking of military units and enabling cities to defend themselves by firing directly on nearby enemies. The game features community, modding, and multiplayer elements.
So the question is do you have the strategy to win the game?? to win the war?? if you are new to civilization then i will advice you to play the earlier versions first before playing the Civilization V, simply because the game play is not like other strategy games.
