PC Gamer has printed its World Exclusive Civilization V review - and the Sid Meier game has fared very well.
In fact, it's knocked it out of the park - with an excellent score of 93 per cent.
PC Gamer said that Civilization V isn't necessarily better than Civilization IV, but describes that kind of achievement as "almost impossible".
"This is more of an equal that exists in parallel, offering a fresh and invigorating style of play with more emphasis on combat".
The mag said that Civilization V has been given a graphical update but it's so much more as well:
"It's a whole new world with a whole new set of rich, intricate rules to master. It's also impossible for a strategy fan to resist picking up...or to quit."
