Sid Meier's Civilization III
(hx) 06:38 AM CET - Dec,02 2001

Sid Meier's Civilization III is turn-based strategy game, third sequel to Civilization series  (Civilization 1991, Civilization II 1996) - one of the greatest strategy games ever. I don't believe you never heard about Sid Meier - creative genius behind some of the most critically acclaimed computer games such Civilization series, Alpha Centauri, SimGolf and Gettysburg. Well, doesn't really matter, because Civilization III is simply another highly addictive game from Firaxis which should absorb you even  if you're just a casual gamer. Civilization III puts you in control of  your own Civilization through the span of over 6,000 years. The game starts on an empty planet in 4000BC with just a mere settler, scout and worker. Now you must find a suitable spot to lay down your first city and begin your quest :) From this point, you're completely in charge of expansion, military and development, technologies development, city development, trading, diplomacy and finally the happiness of your folks. If you never played any Civilization (or Alpha Centauri), be sure to read manual first . The manual contains 235 pages - enjoy :P
Civilization III features : sixteen nations (Rome, Greece, Germany, China, Japan, India, Aztecs, Iroquois, Egypt, Babylon, Russia, America, France, Persia, Zululand or England) to choose from, diplomatic finesse, cultural domination, military prowess, new technologies, wonders of the world and great people, improved combat options, more interactions, alliances and realistic artificial intelligence responses, advanced trade system to manage resources, trade routes and spread of technology, the new AI which makes smart choices even at the easiest level, active world generator that creates more realistic maps, new elements of Culture, nationality and the Arts, detailed and beautiful art, animations and sound and easier-to-use interface and much more.
If you've ever played any of the Civilization games before including Alpha Centauri and want a better challenge, this is the game for you, if you don't then you really need to read the manual or the civilopedia and learn the new concepts. Once you do, this game is a lovely new advancement over the previous edition. Civilization III is definitely a great game which offer infinite possibilities and extreme replay value. Of course if you don't play/like turn-based strategies, simply skip this game like its predecessors :) For those who like Sid Meier's games is Civilization III a worthy upgrade.. I gave this game only 85% but if you are hard-core fan - it should be 95% for you :)

snd: 4/5 - pretty nice background music, ships are extremely loud at times, some repetitive sounds
gfx: 4/5 - better than in previous Civilization games, sharp artwork, unit animations are fluid&varied, force resolution 1024*768 (requires OpenGL)
playability: 5/5 - highly addictive, improved and easy to use interface, interesting new additions, excellent resource system, improved AI, high replay value, 235-page manual, active world generator, editor, minor bugs, no multiplayer
genre: turn-based strategy
release: October 2001
developer: Firaxis
publisher: Infogrames
Overall: 85%

There's no multiplayer, game aint worth buying if there's no multiplayer

I loved Civ2, which I bought, Civ3 I won't buy... to much the same, not enough new thrills....

The game had lots of improvements as a strategy game. Obviously, the above comments come from players who prefer single shooter or action games.

I love this game. Hardcore gamers and those who only play 3D online shit cannot find it in there minds to play this excellent strategy game. In can be slow paced for some, but it wil last and great deal longer.

This sux! obviously sid run out of money to make new inprovments to the game! it looks to much like good old Civilization 2: Call to power. Sorry, sid :O

This is the best game I played in my life, but there is a mistake in this part of the game, It's not appear the Spain civilization, one of the richest civilizations in history. I feel very bad about that, but I hope in next version will appear. I wish all people enjoy with this game.

Milosposted - Dec, 03 2001 - 22:05
Too little to build and not realistic some times too frustrating

Fredposted - Dec, 04 2001 - 03:08
I have been a civ player since the first game, this game is for the thinking strategist, if you want click em up shoot em up then don't buy this game if you want your empire building skills challenged then this is the game. I am annoyed with the programmers not liking the player get the edge

clerisyposted - Dec, 04 2001 - 07:51
Good game if you like civ's. But no mp come on!

Hernaniposted - Dec, 05 2001 - 11:14
How is it possible the game hasn't the spanish and the portuguese civilizations??? If it wasn´t those civilizations there would be no history!! I ain´t gonna buy just because of that! Why could not they keep the civilizations present in call to power??? Man.....

Nunoposted - Dec, 05 2001 - 11:16
Zululand???? Please.... where are the portuguese????????

HardCore CivGamerposted - Dec, 07 2001 - 20:15
First of all, Call To Power is NOT from Sid Meier but from Activision. The AI in CTP sucked big time, I liked the fact that there were lots of civs though. Civ3 is a good followup on Civ2 and Civ, and I've played about all turn-based strategies around. I also regret the fact you can't alter male/female nor your titles, and some more civs could be added. And as of the spanish and portugese, they didn't write that much history except of war, racism and conquest of the weak. Very good sequel.

Luigiposted - Dec, 09 2001 - 01:04
Civ III is very good. It would be great with a multiplayer option... I must add that the spanish and portugese history haven't more war and racism than other civs. However in south america the largest population is the original one; Isn't the same in north america. One with a minimum knowledge of the human history must accept that this two civs should be included in the game, with much others.

mposted - Dec, 09 2001 - 22:40
I've played Civilization since it first came out back in 91' I believe...To me, Civ1, Civ2, and Civ3 are all the same, each series just seems to have more options / more customizable / and alot better graphics...I have bought every single Civilization game Sid has created, and will continue to buy them, even if its just an upgrade...One of the funnest games ever, the ONLY thing I don't like about it...The "only" Cheats! Theres no cheat menu! Come on Sid ! Civilization 1 & 2 was so much fun because of cheats (also fun without), but its just fun advancing your technology so fast having a space shuttle, while the other civilizations are discovering the wheel! Also like some ppl said above, Multiplayer Action would be a total bonus, but even without the cheats and the Multiplayer ability, the game freakin rawks, I highly recommend this game to anyone who has played previous civ's...I'm a 3D Shoot 'em up gamer too...

Sharkposted - Dec, 10 2001 - 22:10
Being an arcade game and motor racing simulation game fan, this (Civ1 and Civ3) is one of the only strategy games that I thoroughly enjoy to play. More civilizations and some sort of multi-player version would be a real bonus.

Mantaposted - Dec, 12 2001 - 23:36
Seem like a lot here dont see beyond the graphics of the gasme.The subtle changes to gameplay have not been overlooked by REAL players of the game. Heres an example : The strategic resource..We now cannot advance without these resoures making trade or war more compelling.The diplomacy model is also well balanced and useful now.Come on lets get some real player comments here

BioH@zardposted - Dec, 14 2001 - 02:31
I never got around to play either of the first two Civ's, but I'm an Alpha Centauri/Alien Crossfire die-hard fan, and this game has me going!!! My first impression was the lack of things to build, until I realized that cultural developments kept me away from the better stuff... Indeed, there should have been several civilizations that weren't included (which I'm sure will be added in patches), but the main facet of the game is long-term strategy (based on your specific civilization's characteristics). Also, unique pieces are only slightly better than their counterparts, and have specific requirements to meet, so start fulfilling those requirements soon!! Like any strategy/simulation game this one requires plenty of patience, forward planning and a bit of innovation (using workers as part of a military campaign), but is worth the retail price! - Two joysticks up!!

Oscar Alhoposted - Dec, 14 2001 - 02:40
Just to correct some comments that say that the Portuguese and the Spanish are not essencial in a game like this, that just prooves that you don't know anything about history... Please just show me any other civilizations that divided the world in two! They were two of the greatest civilizations in a period of time and for a game like this, this is a MAJOR Fault!!!

cleaner interface, super sexy graphics and an overall more immersive experience than civ2, although the team did leave out things that are extremely annoying, not to mention the lack of multiplayer, and the bugs, what the hell is up with the bullshit out of the box? it seems their QA isn't quite up to par these days...

Unbleestposted - Dec, 20 2001 - 16:17
Great Game, of course the Multiplayer is missing, i played civ and civ 2, but civ 3 is the first civ that fascinated me, some nations are missing, and the pics of the leaders dont look good, but does a game like this need that?? i think not, the last game fascinating me so much was counter-strike!! Multiplayer will be released with a later patch, so why dont buy the game?? P.S. Spanish discovered America so why are they not essencial :

Andreposted - Dec, 22 2001 - 08:31
It the best strategy game I have ever played.Obviously those ppl ain't play this type of game but just came in and say it just sux,i can only say it a pity tat they missed such a great game! :)

Alexposted - Jan, 02 2002 - 17:11
This is The best Civ Evermade It is Dificult- the computer is clever(even at easy mode)and althought i play civ from the first game i find civ3 really chalenging and the way you manage your empire is fantastic.As an answer to friends from spain and portugese...they dont deserve to be in the game,spain and portugese empires were just a firework in human history and with no clear roots,and not the first who went in america others have been lots of years before them.....(Vickings,Greeks)

maloxmanposted - Jan, 04 2002 - 13:10
some of you guys don't know what the hell your talkin' about. If you expected it to be completely different, than you weren't looking for a great civilization game. I was dissapointed though, it needs a multiplayer mode and the other civilizations need to stop screwing me. I just wanna say, if you don't know what the hell your talking about, than don't waste my time and write anything.

Rarelinkposted - Jan, 05 2002 - 09:28
Some of you just need to face the facts. This is Civilization part 3, not a whole new game. Apparently, the lot of you were expecting a whole new game with a whole new interface and a whole new everything else. If that's the case, go buy Warcraft or Starcraft, or better yet, get over it. And obviously, when you say the game is too boring you are admitting to having the attention span of a corn flake. or a brick. Choose one, and be careful of what you say. We may mistake you for an idiot. Oh, too late. Contrary, the Civilization series has been consistent in almost all of its aspects. Part 3 has improvements- revamping the neogitations, diplomacy, technology advances, and so on. And I am sure that by now Sid and the crew are aware that not adding a multiplayer option was a mistake on their part. Still, they probably had their reasons for not doing so. Maybe Sid didn't add the Spanish and Portuguese civilizations into Civ. III because he felt that their powerful, almighty reputation wouldn't be conveyed correctly through such a tiny, meaningless Civilization PC game. Yeah, that's it. Actually, it was probably because the Portuguese, funded by the Spaniards, aided in the conquering and raping of the Indians in the Americas. Civilization rules. Bye.

Soren Johnsonposted - Jan, 06 2002 - 03:24
i would like to get rid of a few misconceptions. I worked on Civilization III, and it is not a game which you can just look at and say 'The graphics sucks, the game sucks'. I played civ1 and civ2 and i can honesty say part 3 is the best out of all of them. If you say this game sucks, then your iq is probably no higher than your age and you find quake a highly intelligent game filled with mind-bending puzzles. Also, for those who say there is no multiplayer, Civ3 will have multiplayer as an expansion pack. Due to time limits, there was not enough time to put it into the game, but the multiplayer has even more units and options than single player, and there will even be an option to turn off turn-based fighting, so you can play age of empires style.

Rarelinkposted - Jan, 06 2002 - 09:38
I like the part about "you find quake a highly intelligent game filled with mind-bending puzzles."
That's funny.

Thanks for the commentary, Soren. I agree- Civ. 3 is definetly the best out of the three. Remember part 1? Giant pixels, top view of map, cities and units represented by squares? Ah, the classics...

Civilization Rules. Bye.

Ju Juposted - Jan, 07 2002 - 18:43
This game is sharp. I'm an old school civ fan and this is far and away the best yet. The strategic and luxury resources, along with the advanced diplomacy force you to make some tough choices. You need luxury items from your neighbor to keep your people happy. Do you trade a strategic resource to get it? If you do, you strengthen your opponent. If you don't your people are pissed. Do you risk a war for it? If so it may bleed you dry. If you don't like this style of game, don't buy it. There are a ton of fps shoot em ups out there, go invest your $40 in one of them. As for the Spainish and Portuguese being lest out, who cares? It's a game boys, it's not Sid Mier's history of the world. They had to draw a line somewhere. If they didn't, there would be 150 civs. I could make an argument for Mongolia (they were not chinese). The huns overtook Rome, what about them? The fact that some noteworthy civs were left out does not matter. The game is still one of, if not the best available.

Nosferatuposted - Jan, 11 2002 - 10:27
This game rulezzzzzz all the way... This game is an example for all the other strategy games. There has been changed a lot since the first civ. Keep on doing the good job, Sid.

Gamer17posted - Jan, 11 2002 - 21:44
I thought this game was great, a brilliant sequel to Civ2, which before now I thought was the best Strategy game ever; Civ3 is of course better. I like the improved graphics and character animation. Once again shame about lack of multiplayer, and I thought that there could've been the option to choose gender. I also miss the Vikings and Mongolians, but, still, the better features make up for it. This game is one of the best.

Portugal, Spain, France, England and Netherlands were the empires that most affected the development of the world. They all must be in the game. I just want to show that portugal has enough element to be in this game:(I'm sorry if I'm writing something wrong, but I'm saying this by my head) -Just for you to know that the Portuguese, in fact were the first country in the world to abolish slavery. -Many inventions in sailing were made including being the first nation that the boats were able to sail against the wind. -Were a nation that trade with the chinese and japonese. The sucess was so great that Macau was a chinese tradepost with portuguese governemnt.(simillar to Hong Kong) -Vasco de Gama arrived in India (18 May 1498), and opened a new trading route between Europe and Asia. This small nation was the ruler of the Indian ocean for about 150 years and the Portuguese language was for more than 250 years the trading language (lingua franca) of the Asiatic coasts. -In 1386 an allience was established between Portugal and England. It's the longest alliance in world history. -The Treaty of Tordesillas of 1494, arranged by Pope Alexander VI, divided the unexplored world between Spain and Portugal. -A new constitution was writen in 1911 that changed monarchy to a republican government. I've forget many other historic facts but these ones are enough to enable Portugal to be on Civ3 right? Kind regards, Joao Tavares

Opus Kroakusposted - Jan, 18 2002 - 01:22
I've read all of the comments and the one thing that strikes me as hysterical is that the amount of space given to the beef that the Spanish and Portuguese haven't been included (yup I'm doing it too)....Having said that, the sound you are hearing is the rest of us not giving a damn about what a few egotistical Spaniards and Portuguese think. I have friends from both of those countries and they just laughed and laughed. Their comment, get a "life". I've played the game now for a week. I am a HUGE Civ II and Alpha Centauri fan, games I play to this day, so I was pretty excited when I started to play CivIII. At first I didn’t particularly like it but the more and more I got into it, the better it was. Sadly (not really), I am now completely hooked. Yes mp would be great, yes more civs would be great, and yes gender choice would be great. But all in all the game is GREAT! A big thanks to all those who take the time to write decent, thoughtful reviews, both positive and negative. To those who can’t seem to formulate a complete sentence, or thought...please rest assured that society will take pity on you and will find a roll for you, somewhere. And, try not to injure yourself attempting to compose a reply. I know all the swear words so I don’t think you can teach me anything new.

The Joshposted - Jan, 18 2002 - 22:59
Well, where the hell do I start? I suppose right off I should voice my support of most people who have previously posted on this board. There has been a lot of thought and opinion that certainly has reason to be reviewed. Of course, there are also a few fuckin' morons on here that should be bitch slapped right away. But anyway, back on with it... Civilization III is by far the most addicting game I've ever played. I just can't stop...if I win, I have to start again with another Civ. And of course, if I get screwed in a previous game, I find it fun to include that civ in my aspirations of world domination. I started out the Civ series at number II...and it was, at the time, one of the coolest games I'd ever played. Just the way it was organized and set was just that damn good. Of course, it had its problems. I hated the way diplomacy was handled, and thought the graphics could use a little bit of work. But those two things have been solved in this third installment, and I have to say that I am very impressed. The civilizations included in the game have been made more realistic, and more specific to their accomplishments. The civ types (Expansionist, scientific, religious, etc.) is a great way to tailor your own goals in world domination. Of course, there are the maximum number of civs to make any combination of those types available...which probably explains the lack of the Spanish, Vikings, Moguls, etc that people are complaining about. The Diplomacy feature I thought was absolutely one of the best features in the game. You can trade technologies, contacts, maps, and even demand gold or cities in the trade. And the resources/luxuries have been well done as well in a very complete system. I can only imagine what the fourth one will be like...but when it comes out, I will be the first in line to pick it up. I agree that it is unfortunate not to have the multiplayer, but I'm sure that it will come in time. My only complaints for this great game do not even come close to overweighing the things I like about it. The government system, although a good idea, I think should be improved a bit (with the production of units in cities). An example: My empire covered a continent, and I had not yet ventured out to sea to meet other civs. With every city heavily fortified, and many cultural things achieved, I had need to produce something of worth. I didn't want to waste time building more units, and when I set it to "Never", they were produced any way. Same with Naval units, as I prefer not to use the navy (it is really pointless). And if anything, they just produce workers. Workers of course are nice to have in abundance (if you can support all of them), but the game animation makes things go incredibly slow when you have too many of them. I usually let them automate, so they quickly take up the screen like an army of ants, and I'm forced to add them to city population when there are simply too many of them. I also agree with whoever mentioned above getting screwed all the time. The Civs will accept gifts from you and be gracious, but when you ask them to remove their forces, they instantly declare war and find the nearest unfortified city to annihilate. No matter how much you kiss their asses, they will eventually stab you in the back. Cleopatra is super bitch. As much as I love the Egyptians and their history, she's a conniving, vindictive bitch in this game. But I like that...they seem to have personality, even if your top ranked civ in everything still gets called puny and weak by lesser civs. Anyway, overall, I have to say that this game is one of the best out there for any platform. Grand Theft Auto, RPG's, Wrestling, Sports...all of these are great...and Civ III will certainly be leading the way in strategy gaming for quite some time. After reading the previous reviews, I just had to add my words in here...and maybe build some heat. I'd like to hear opinions of others...and I'll more than likely return to see how people react to this posting. Thanks for reading.

The civilization series has amazed me and has improved the ideas of gaming 4ever but i hav 2 admit im disappointed with civilization 3 ya it has good graphics and yes a great new diplomacy system but the whole damn game confuses me and takes 2 long 4 a turn 2 go by. the old ones were better simpler easier and dusnt make u feel like an idiot. im 1 who understands things quite easy(i may b canadien but i aints a stupeds ya hears A!!)i cant bleve even sid wood put his name on this...CRAP!!! i feel it cood hav been better by juss making it simpler and each day i try 2 find a new civilization game hoping i havent played them all. i downloaded this game and i felt i wasted my time and memory on this crap i prefer the simple yet more understanding versions like civ, civ2, civ call t power, civ call tp power 2 and civ alpha centauri these 1s are all great(havent downloaded civctp and civctp2 but am downloadin it) i hear great reviews from civ3 but i dont see it i barely get in the game b4 i get bord or get frustrated it feels like im getting less then what i payed 4 it(i payed shit all 4 it 2!)

I dont play alot of turn based games....I like first person shooter.....But I have to admit it, this game is very good. You can play it many different ways and the game never has the same outcome. I have drawers full of action, arcade, shooter and hunting...and some simulation...but I would have to say civ 3 is almost the best game I have....

Ruiposted - Nov, 20 2002 - 02:23
Play the world is out, and no Portuguese yet, i´m waiting for 10 years now, and i will keep waiting :( I like civilization very must, and who think that Portugal is not important think about magellean´s expedition wonder (fernao de magalhaes is Portuguese!!). I only wanted to say this, think about if your civilization, for example England were not in civ 3? (England is powerful because she steal Portuguese Empire with their pirates!!)

ragnarökposted - Feb, 23 2003 - 15:30
i really liked the new civ. i don't give a damn about portuguese and spanish friends, i admit that the game (as it appears) has no intention of picking up the 16 most influential civilizations of the world. i am definitely sure that many civilizations - presumably more civilized and influential than portuguese or spanish - were left out too and who cares. take out your radical nationalistic views and look at the game again: how are sfxs? graphics? bugs?

There is good reason for not including the Spanish and Portuguese in the game. First of all, no Spanish or Portuguese people will be playing this game any time soon (they are all too poor to buy computers, and last time i checked, you can't purchase computer games with food stamps.) I doubt they would want to play the game anyway, because they are always out mowing lawns and peddling stolen watches to tourists. The only item of value that Spanish and Portuguese people buy is the latest edition of Calvin Klein cologne, which theyuse routinely to mask the horrid odor created from a lack of hygiene. So to all the Spanish and Portuguese people who are mad that their country wasn't represented in this game, all I can say is this: go fuck yourself, and do it while taking a long, hot shower. P.S.--Civ3 is a great game
