is a strategy game. Strategy games are typically lacking in the graphics department. Civilization II
is no exception. The “gameboard” is a square based system, turned 45 degrees (Q*bert
-style). Mind you, as far as strategy games are concerned, Civilization II
is average. It does, however, excel in small outtakes from the gameplay. When your civilization discovers certain technologies, you are greeted by some nice looking graphics, and in some cases, video.
The soundtracks are rudimentary, but acceptable. You may wish to listen to a CD or the radio because the repeat on the soundtracks is fairly short, and the game goes on... and on...
