Civilization V Philippines
Sleepless days will start now :)

Firaxis has done it again with the release of its latest masterpiece, Civilization V. It is one of the most addicting games ever made for the PC platform. You'll literally "live" in front of your computer for days while playing this game; pausing only for the occasional toilet break and an hour of sleep (maybe less). Once I even experienced a sort of time-lapse because of this game. I knew I started on a Friday night but the next time I looked at the time, it was Sunday morning. O.o

Civilization 5 Combat System
Civilization V is a turn-based strategy game wherein your objective is to transform a small group of uncivilized barbarians to a large and powerful nation that would stand the test of time. You're the unquestionable ruler of a civilization. It's up to you to make decisions regarding politics, culture, religion, military, science, finance, and growth. Not to mention diplomacy (or the lack of it) with other civilizations. I admit there's a bit of a learning curve but once you get the basics down, the game will engage you in such a way that you will find it difficult to stop. You may think "I have to build this last tank" or "I have to race for that resource" and keep delaying hitting that quit button. ^_^

Firaxis has made a lot of graphical improvements within the game. Compared with the last versions of the game, this is the most beautiful Civilization game ever created. They also introduced the "hex grid" in this version allowing for a more strategic combat system. I could go on and on about everything good this game has to offer but I highly recommend you pick up a copy right now and see for yourself. It doesn't have any age limitation (anybody can play) or a high system requirement. Got at least Windows XP with 2Gb memory and a dedicated 256mb graphics card? You've got it covered.

The game shines either you choose to play alone or with a group of friends. It's a no-brainer choice; this is a must-have game. Enjoy the launch trailer below. ^__^
