As is usual with Civ series games, Civilization V is highly addictive and have very high replay value. The vanilla game is pretty good on it's own, but it is with the expansion packs that this game really shines. One of the distinctive features is the introduction of fully animated leaders whose responses to your visits, trade offers, etc. reflect your state of diplomatic relationship with them. Unlike earlier titles, combat and movement are now hex based, and only one combat and/or non-combat unit may remain in one tile at a time. The soundtrack is amazing, with each civilization and region having their separate war, peace and ambient music, giving a welcome sense of uniqueness to each playthrough. Overall, this game needs to be experienced by anyone who is even remotely interested in strategy games.

The Complete Edition includes everything related to gameplay that has been released and then some:

* Vanilla version
* Gods and Kings expansion
* Brave New World expansion
* All map packs
* All scenario packs
* All civilizations
* Soundtrack (Vanilla, GnK, BNW)
* A Behind the Scenes video

In addition to these, a foldout Tech Tree included inside the box is a nice bonus. However, a printed manual is missing, which may or may not be an issue for you. The digital version of the manual is included in the DVD although it only covers the vanilla game; the extended manual including the new features introduced by Gods and Kings and Brave New World can be downloaded from Steam.

Being distributed exclusively through Steam, activation is necessary, and an update of just under 1 GB needs to be downloaded before the game can be launched for the first time. After that it can be played offline if one so desires as with any other steam game. For those who are not aware, it is possible to backup game files using the steam client; so, it might be prudent to create a backup of the full installation for those who are on a limited data connection and/or don't want to download the updates all over again upon re-installation.
