Civ 4 is a decent game with lots of technologies to discover and creations to...create. It's fun building up your civilization the first few times and learning the new technologies, but once you've discovered everything the game has to offer, it's just not really that much fun to play. I mean you can still have a good time seeing how quickly you can beat the computers ass but it just seems kind of pointless. This game is a lot better when you first get it, but if you're like me it will lose it's replay value after you've made all the discoveries and had a few thriving civilizations. It's still a really good game but it might not be worth the money unless you're like a hardcore Civ'er. It still gets a B but it would've gotten higher if maybe it took a little longer to beat.
