Now granted, “classy” isn’t the first word that pops into my mind when I see little metal men — in fact, it would probably be one of the last descriptors to come up — but look at that slick art for the box/book/CD covers. I can picture an aged gentleman smoking a pipe by the fireplace while eying it thoughtfully.
When Civilization V journeys to retail outlets on September 21, you’ll have the opportunity to get the $99.99 version in North America. Quite a jump in price, isn’t it? This is what the extra cash gets you:
- 5 metal figurines by Reaper Miniatures
- A 2-disc CD soundtrack
- A behind-the-scenes DVD (oh joy!)
- Most importantly, a 176-page hardcover art book
I for one will be respectfully passing on it. I dig Civilization, just not that much. Where do you stand?
