Lovers of the Original Civilization Games and Age of Empires Series Will Go Absolutely Crazy Over Civilization III Gold

Rated Game of the Year by more gaming magazines then I care to list, this game goes down as one of the best of all time.

  • "What makes Civ III such a great game is that, just like Civ II, it blends a simple start with a vast array of options and pulls them together into a detailed, compelling, and seamless gaming experience. This is one game that you can't afford to miss." - PC Gamer Magazine

You begin by choosing one of 16 different nations, each with its own special unit and societal strength (militarist, idustrial, scientific etc.). The nation you choose will affect the way you play the game as you seek to take advantage of its unique strengths. As you progress, you will have the advantage of trading with other civilizations, work out treaties, and go to war.

  • "If you play one turn-based game this life, play Civilization III." - GameSpy

Civilization III Involves More Than Just Simple Warmongering

You can win the game just as easily through cultural power and winning the space race. Defeating another nation can be difficult and a tremendous drain on your resources, just like real life.
