As the sequel to the original game in the series, Sid Meier's Civilization II offers a wide ranging upgrade with a multitude of enhancements and improvements. High resolution graphics complement an isometric view of the game world as the player is given the opportunity to expand his or her civilization to include a host of new Wonders of the World and updated technology.
The range of weaponry now runs the gamut from early times with archers and elephants to modern warfare's latest developments such as the Stealth fighter and AEGIS cruisers. The game's diplomacy module has been enhanced and becomes a much larger factor in Sid Meier's Civilization II than it was in the first game.
A new Deity Level is available to test those who feel they've mastered gameplay in the original. Exploration, economics, knowledge and conquest are the major aspects that mesh together to challenge players in this turn-based strategy game. Customization options include size of the world, landmass, land form, climate, temperature, age of the civilization, four barbarian activity choices and six difficulty levels.
Differences between the original title and Sid Meier's Civilization II focus on new combat techniques, hit points and firepower, restoration of units (combat is no longer an all-or-nothing proposition), new units, new production concepts (e.g., waste), enhanced and realistic terrain features, upgraded government and diplomacy aspects, city improvements and espionage. ~ Michael L.
