Reviewers Liked

  • Three varied factions; interesting turn-based world-domination mode
  • Strips away a lot of the bloat from the first two games

Reviewers Didn't Like

  • Inscrutable combat; frustrating AI; many game features not implemented well
  • Just three main civilization types, Overly simplistic worlddomination campaign mode, Ineffective AI, Mixedup units with some bizarre, unfunny specialties, Spectacularly annoying unitacknowledgment dialogue
