Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is the newest in a series of strategy games in a genre called “4X”, which stands for explore, expand, exploit, exterminate. It makes one sound a bit like a Dalek, frankly. Civilization IV builds on the successes of Civilization V in so many ways, so in our regular review fashion, grab your nukes and meet me down on the battlefield.
Europa Universalis IV from Paradox Interactive is the latest instalment of the grand strategy series, and adds many huge improvements to an already impressive game. I try my hand at world conquest to see if this is the game that makes kings, or the kind that makes kings turn in their graves.
