    hey ision,

    this is not a coment on any one of your reviews but on all your reviews. they have been a great help to all us that read the forums. they are very very well written and a valuable contribution to all civ players. anytime i see any thread in the forums that was written by ision i always read it and print out a copy. ision’s advice has helped me move up in level many times and made me a much better player.

    thank you for the reviews and all the other articles !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Make one for Iroquois! Great civ in my opinion. The combination of argicultural and commercial makes for a great early and late civ. Mounted Warrior is great as well, cheap, fast, and strong.

    I'm a fan of the French (*sigh* -- I just like the industrius/commercial combination along with their UU which is rather convinent because if I get into a war in the late middle ages/early industrial age I'll have a golden age when I'm building railroads and factories).

    Anyways Ision are you going to be doing a review of them?

    Where are my manners? Thanks for the previous reviews (on edit).

    Ision! Great work! :goodjob:
    I read only the Egyptians review (I've tried them), and it's exact!

    There are many civs to write about, but there are two kinds of HoF scoring -
    by conquest or milking. (I'm a conquest HoFmer until I finish it..)

    In tiny/small maps, it is conquest.
    There is almost only one civilization to use for this, so it is extremely important!..

    AZTEC!!!!!

    Please think about them if you're gonna continue writing anything of importance.. ;)

    In any case, have a good daynight.

    I would write one for you... but I in no way have the experience required to write about a civ from AA through MA. Great work though; keep it up :).

    The link to the review of the English is missing in the first post.

    http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=87994

    The articles are really great work and I'm always looking forward to the next.They inspired me more than once to try out a civ (again)...

    It would be good to have a link to a sample game for each review. There are plenty of SGs that you could choose from.

    For example, for Portugal, definitely AG3. :)

    I have an idea: Add a list of the civs not reviewed right now, too. So that people can see immediately what is missing.

    A civs done - civs to do list

    Perhaps someone says, I am such an expert Russia player, they do not have a review, let's see if this review is good enough in Ision's eyes.
