Review by Game Hippo:“Freeciv is an impressive, detailed clone of civilization. It offers online play via servers but is not designed for single player games (although there are servers for this purpose and local games are possible if you make a server). In Freeciv, your goal is to gradually build up your civilization by learning new technology, by building improvements on your city, and by insuring that your citizens are happy. This game has a very steep learning curve, possibly with an exception for those accustomed to Civilization. This game may run a little slow on older machines. It allows users to connect to a special gaming server to make finding opponents very easy.“
