The Edge Awards 2010
"Close your eyes and you hear the rattle of masts in a harbour, the rumble of construction, the clanking of metal - for the amount of information Civ V supplies sonically, it is a miracle that its ambience never becomes a cacophony. But this achievement is trumped by the score itself, which playfully reworks culturally appropriate instrumentation into recognisable mood cues for a modern musical idiom epitomising the series' ambition as an all-encompassing interactive trip through time."
