Sid Meier's Civilization® V is the fifth offering in the multi-award winning Civilization strategy game series featuring the famous "just one more turn" addictive gameplay that has made it one of the greatest game series of all time.

The Flagship Turn-Based Strategy Game Returns

Become Ruler of the World by establishing and leading a civilization from the dawn of man into the space age: Wage war, conduct diplomacy, discover new technologies, go head-to-head with some of history's greatest leaders and build the most powerful empire the world has ever known.


    Jump right in and play at your own pace with an intuitive interface that eases new players into the game. Civ veterans will appreciate the depth, detail and control that are highlights of the series.
    Ultra realistic graphics showcase lush landscapes for you to explore, battle over and claim as your own. Art deco influences abound in the menus and icons in the most well-designed Civ ever developed.
    Compete with Civ players all over the world or locally in LAN matches, mod* the game in unprecedented ways, and install mods directly from an in-game community hub without ever leaving the game. Civilization V brings community to the forefront.
    Civilization V operates on many different systems, from high end DX11 desktops to many laptops. Enjoy unlimited installations on multiple PCs with your Steam account and take your Civ V experience with you everywhere you go.
    A new hex-based gameplay grid opens up exciting new combat and build strategies. City States become a new resource in your diplomatic battleground. An improved diplomacy system allows you to negotiate with fully interactive leaders. Custom music scores and orchestral recordings give Civ V the level of polish and quality you expect from the series.
    2K Games is donating a total of $250,000 to four education based charities, and users' choices will determine how the money is dispersed: simply select your choice from the pre-selected charities during the install process.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat game!

Pros: Civilization has always been a great series and Civ 5 is no exception!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: NewEgg took a while to actually email me my code. I got it after about an hour. I can't take an egg off for NewEgg's service, but it's something to be aware of.

On other sites I have gotten my codes after a couple of minutes, if not instantly.

5 out of 5 eggsignore negative post

Pros: Its civilization. Its a great game that simple. My main reason for this post is to clarify the negative review for the website 'hosting' this game. The online game code does not take you to some obscure website, its Steam. Steam, you know, like the biggest online PC gaming website ever, ever. That's all I wanted to say. It is not Jo's online gaming Scam Central, its Steam, and you can play the game offline by setting your status to offline. I think the reviewer just really didn't like the game, which is fine, but please at least give the name of the download site so other purchaser's don't think they are being ripped off by the download location.

Cons: None, I received my game code within a couple of minutes.

Other Thoughts: 6.00 is a great deal for this game. If you are hesitant about the online game code, don't be Steam is extremely reputable and a great place to buy PC games.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's Civilization

Pros: It's a good game that doesn't tarnish the Civilization brand.

Cons: It's not whatever your previous favorite version of Civ is.

Other Thoughts: Don't listen to the nerds and geeks that complain about this or that. The game is different than the past versions and is a good game. If you like the Civilization line and don't already have a favorite one that you can't deviate from then this is a good game for you.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't bother

Pros: None.

Cons: The "game code" version locks you into some lame online game site, an forces you to login to play your game, even if you will NEVER play online. Cannot run the game at all without this pointless service.

Game play is almost completely changed with new concepts like city states and paying gold to buy squares adjacent to your city?

I completely disagree with Vamphaery. This feels like a completely new game with little in common with Civ4. It neither deserves the Civilization name or loyalty. I won't buy another release in this lifetime, and feel completely ripped-off by this purchase.

After writing this review, I will be uninstalling and wiping all vestige of it from my system.

After d/ling it and the online game program, I was thinking I'd just buy the boxed version and forget the online service. After playing it, I'm just gonna delete all of it!

Don't waste your money. Enjoy Civ4!

Other Thoughts: Even the "fog of war" is lame. It looks like everywhere but where you are is completely covered by annoying big fluffy clouds! :(

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Game!

Pros: Graphics
Replayability - High

Cons: DLCs are expensive

Other Thoughts: Its a awesome game that involves a lot of strategy. Pick a nation and just play it, you will learn as you go. I suggest you choose Japan as your nation if this is your first time playing.
