Re: General Gaming Discussion
I think the only thing I don't really like about Civ V is the battles aren't as epic as Total War, but that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy them, nor do I think they should have them. But that's the only 'negative' I could find. As for the Naval battles, Civ V beats it thanks to it's simplicity. I love sending a huge fleet to destroy Cities that have been constructed near the ocean, easy pray.
As for the rest of it, I find it so addicting. I could spend countless hours just building my cities up so that they increase their production, culture, food etc.. Then maybe start thinking about building an army to take other a few countries. I also like how you can choose the size of the map, how the islands are constructing. The HUGE map that I started with has lasted me over 10 hours so far and I've only destroyed two countries. Still more to go.
It's definitely the most addicting game I've played for a while. Reminds me of Rome Total War when I would spend hours building my Empire up to over take the world.
