Levels, as typically know them, don't exist in Civilization V. Selecting single-player mode opens a map with your desired civilization settings. However, the I/O workload for generating a map looks very similar to what we saw in Crysis 2 because most of the operations are 128 KB sequential read accesses at a queue depth of one.
But Civilization V is a turn-based strategy game. It’s not a first-person shooter, which is why it's also far less graphically-intensive than Crysis 2. The amount of data being read reflects this, as the system loads fewer textures and less game data.
