Ok, I've played two games, the first was a time victory. I figured I didn't deserve a movie for that. But then I won a space victory! A Civ space victory is the most important achievement in PC gaming! I want fireworks! I want a parade! Why does Civ ONE still have the most satisfying victory movie?? The game's design, for a vanilla unexpanded Civ, is nearly a masterpiece. Well done! Every gameplay choice is meaningful and fun. But... I have to say the presentation is a little dull. Giant Death Robots are fun and they help some except the game is over before you get to use them. I'm still waiting for that version of civ that has a better 'history of the world' replay than Civ1, a better victory movie than Civ1, and better wonder movies than Civ2, all in one ultimate Civ. I even miss being able to construct the worlds ugliest palace. It's such a no brainer to go all out with these things, all it takes is a tiny bit of creativity and some funding. It would be so worth it!
