When it was first created in 1990, the original Civilization instantly set the standard and defined a new genre of empire-building strategy games. Still recognized as one of the greatest games of all time, Civilization was an addictive blend of building, exploration, discovery and conquest. Players matched wits against some of history's greatest leaders as they strove to build the ultimate civilization that would ultimately stand the test of time.

That legacy of excitement and conquest continues with Civilization III: Complete, featuring the updated and enhanced multiplayer expansion pack Civilization III: Play the World, as well as all of the great new Civs, Scenarios, and Features from Civilization III: Conquests! Among the numerous enhancements include new interactions, alliances and realistic artificial intelligence responses that put players in the middle of negotiations, trade systems and diplomatic actions. Also new is an advanced trade system to manage resources, trade routes and spread of technology, as well as improved combat options that provide finer levels of control for enhanced war-making capabilities.

New Technologies, Wonders Of The World and Great People expand the scope of the game, while new elements of Culture, Nationality and the Arts help players plan a new peaceful pathway to victory. The game also includes a new active world generator for more realistic maps and organic terrain features, as well as the most detailed and beautiful art, animation and sound ever found in the genre. With the easier-to-use interface, you'll experience streamlined management and better control as you navigate through the levels.

Civilization III: Play the World Features
In addition to the multiplayer modes that include turn-based and simultaneous game types, appearing for the first time in a Civilization game is a turn-less mode. You can ace off against the best Civilization players worldwide with fast-paced multiplayer games like Elimination, Domination, Regicide and Capture the Flag. Also included are eight new Civilizations, featuring new leaders including Genghis Khan Temujin, King Hannibal, Queen Isabella and King Brennus, as well as all new units that will challenge your diplomatic and combat skills. An enhanced scenario editor, including new unit and tile sets, lets you construct a scenario from any time period. You can also strengthen your empire with new map features, like outposts, airfields and radar towers, new guerilla and medieval infantry units, and new wonders and city improvements. An updated interface improvements allow for more efficient management, and a dazzling new opening cinematic and combat animations bring your civilization world to life like never before.

Civilization III: Conquest Features
With Conquest, the operative word is "more." You get seven more powerful civilizations, from the innovative Sumerians to the mystical Mayans. More units lets you use Trebuchets to batter down the enemy's walls, or Sumerian Enkidu Warriors to quickly gain military dominance. More technical features give you the tools to map the world using satellites. But beware, there are also more dangers, such as volcanoes and other disasters. Best of all, there are many more improvements to the game, including improvements to the AI, Combat System, Interface, Rally Points, Governors, Leaders, Unit-Stacks, and even Game Balance.

All told, Civilization III: Complete is a game of epic proportions, the ultimate 3-in-1 box set that will give you endless hours of addictive entertainment.
