Deutsche Reviews

4Players online 90% Der dritte Teil bietet Euch altbewährtes, rundenbasiertes Strategiefutter - und zwar aus der Feinschmeckerabteilung. online 86% Dafür bietet 'Civilization III' mit seinen neuen, sinnvollen Features stundenlangen Spielspass. Andererseits fragt man sich, ob dieses Spiel nicht schon vor drei Jahren hätte erscheinen können, denn Fans von schmucker Grafik und bombastischem Sound sind hier definitiv falsch. Für alle anderen Rundenstrategen ist 'Civilization III' auf jeden Fall einen Kauf wert, die langen Winterabende sind gerettet.

PCGamesPortal online 90% Das Spiel hat wie alle 4 Vorgänger einen hohen Suchtfaktor und ist etwas für lange Nächte.
