"Civilization II isn't just the original game with a Super
VGA graphical makeover. It achieves what few game successors have been able to
do: maintain the core product while adding enough new elements to create a new
challenge. It offers new unit types, terrains, resources, facilities,
advancements, and Wonders of the World, including pyramids that allow you to
change your type of government at will."
PC Games, June 1996
"Civ II is a turn-based game of exploration, commerce,
balance, and conquest. You discover the world as you settle it, gathering new
resources and growing your population. You can have as few as three or as many
as seven other civilizations compete against your strategic might. You select
opponents from a pool of 21 adversaries with varying attitudes and styles of
play. You can choose to create alliances with opponents or declare war.
Establish trade routes, send out spies, and steal technologies. There's no
single route to success. "
"Civilization II is a considerable achievement,
significantly improving a very complex classic without losing the flavor of the
original. At a time when so many airhead games with motion-picture visuals are
hitting the streets, newcomers and veterans alike will welcome Civ II's
imagination, depth, and fun. Civilization II is a must have."
PC Gamer, July 1996
"Diplomacy is far more sophisticated in Civ II. Rather than
simply being at peace or at war, you can now make cease-fire agreements or
strategic alliances. Once diplomacy fails to yield results, players will find a
new, more complex combat system that makes warfare much more realistic. Each
unit has a number of hit points based on their tech level and strength, as well
as a firepower factor."
"Of course the most visible changes lie in the slick, new
Windows interface, graphics, video, and sound. Video has been added in the form
of silly advisers and neat, little mini-movies that herald the construction of
each new Wonder of the World."
