A border skirmish is about to go downhill

Lead a nation from prehistoric to modern times and beyond in the freshest take on the 4X genre in recent memory.

There are several ways to win the game, from being the highest ranking nation after the time runs out, to complete military conquest of the randomly generated map. In a major innovation from the previous games, Civ V is divided into hexagons instead of cubes, which radically improves one’s ability to maneuver around the map. Stockpiling units in an effort to win through sheer force has become less effective, making smart tactical choices more important than ever. Of course, the inevitable diplomacy is still here, and the AI opponents are more unpredictable than ever.

Everything you’ve ever loved about the series is present in Civilization V, unless you were an spying or religious fanatic, in which case I recommend getting the expansion. Regardless of your minor gameplay preferences though, you owe it to yourself to play this masterpiece.
