Civilization or also known as Sid Meier’s Civilization is a popular 4X Grand Strategy video game by MPS Labs. The objective of the game is to build a whole new Empire in the era of 4000 BC, expand the Empire, and slowly move from the Ancient Era to the Modern Times. Initially developed as a PC video game that could only be run on DOS, Civilization has undergone loads of extensive revisions, and it ported to more platforms over time including Windows, Mac, Amiga, Atari ST, Super NES, Sega Saturn, PlayStation, and N-Gage and now the game is available in multiple versions as well. With a Turn-based gameplay, Civilization offers both Single and Multiplayer gameplay modes and allows the players to take on the role of the Ruler of the Civilization. The players get tasked to start off the building process with one or two Settlement units, grow them up using all of the available resources and compete against two to six other Civilizations. To outsmart the other Civilizations, the Ruler must use the element of Micromanagement and complete various tasks such as Exploration, Warfare, and Diplomacy, and make decisions about the settlements of new Cities, and about all the requirements to build them. Barbarian attacks on the settlements is a really big issue and to resolve this issue, the players will have to find ways to eliminate the threat. In the beginning, the game allows the players to select any ancient race to continue with and offers choices such as Mongols, Romans, Americans, Aztecs and allows the players to lead the tribes as a famous historical figure. With a colossal historical scope of the game that begins from 4000 BC, before the great Bronze Age and lasts through the Space Age in 2100 AD, Civilization is one huge Grand Strategy video game that allows the players to immerse themselves in the gameplay deeply and enjoy it.
