Is It Any Good?

Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

CivWorld is a polished game that retains much of the flavor and complexity of the original Civilization computer games while adding social features that encourage true teamwork rather than simply spamming Facebook friends' walls for items. Through in-game chat boards, players in a civilization can coordinate each nation's contributions in such a way as to maximize the civilization's overall prosperity. There are multiple goals to pursue on many different levels, and achievements are displayed on online leaderboards. There might be some privacy concerns since players are able to interact with people outside their circle of Facebook friends, but so far the community seems to be mature and capable of policing itself.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
