This is where you will find lots of information on the Civilization II series, for the beginner, amateur and pro. To begin with, for those of you who are interested in submitting something of yours that you believe would be useful to CivII gamers such as yourself, please comment here.
Civilization II is the sequel to the classic game Civilization. In Civilization and its sequel, in the beginning you rule over a tiny, nomadic tribe. It is your task to bring this puny settler away from its primitive past to control an empire that spans the globe, hopefully sometimes launching a space craft to reach and colonize a nearby star. Of course, in the process you have to found cities, control diplomatic relation with other civilizations, research technology, create, train, and command a hopefully elite army, build wonders of the world, pave roads, plant farms, mine mines, lay fortresses, and plan your cities to become glittering marvels recongnized for millenia. We hope you will find this page useful in your journey to building the ultimate civilization.
You may ask, how is CivII different from the original? Well, Civ2 makes a great game better. Civ2 keeps all the aspects of the original, modernizes them, adds video and better graphics, and puts in some more technologies and aspects to the game. There are more diplomacy options, new wonders of the world such as Leonardo's Workshop, new units like Stealth Bomber and Paratrooper, and new city improvements like Coastal Fortress. If you liked Civ, you'll find this one just as addicting as the original.
Below are some information packages we have gathered from various resources, all together in one convienient place. With a click- and-easy download, you'll learn all the tools of the trade from all angles.
