Added the price to the title.
#2
Was just about to fix it, thanks.

Great game, great price.

Check your PC specs - needs a lot of HDD and a good spec graphics card.
Also need a Steam account, which is a pain without a decent broadband connection.

Agreed. I'm less enthusiastic about the game than I was though (bought at launch). The AI doesn't handle amphibious strategic attacks well and the promised multiplayer campaign still hasn't materialized.

Nothing wrong with Steam, many more advantages than disadvantages if you ask me.
#6
Suprised this runs ok on my Laptop with only a 128mb dedicated graphics card.

It is below the minimum spec by far.

Saying that, it's a good game but CIV 4: Beyond the Sword will always be better.

The real time battles are good, particularly the naval battles but yeah, I'd rather be playing Civilization.

But at this price...worth a punt.
#7
AVOID - complete rip off imo.
Even on a decent spec machine it crashes randomly. this is very well documented throughout the internet and to top it off, because of the ridiculous steam account nonsense you cant even sell it on!
Only £10 for a good reason.
:x

Sitting at 90% on Metacritic also ive have played the game loads amd had no crashes, the game has been patched a couple of times so alot of glitches prolly have been ironed out.

Agreed that there are advantages in having automatic updates, but the disadvantages are that it requires a fast and reliable broadband connection. If your connection is slow and flaky, which mine is, it can, quite frankly, be a complete pain.

E.g. for ETW when I installed the game, I had to leave it running overnight to get the initial setup installed via Steam (why bother providing a disk?). I went to play it the following night and, with wonderful timing, there was an update which then took the second night to download and install.

Now, if you can point me to any controls which allow you to manage and schedule Steam updates, I would be prepared to reconsider my dislike, but currently I'm not a fan.

Yeah, I couldn't play for 2 days at launch (I had pre-ordered a disc copy) because the authentication servers were unavailable (sadly not my first experience like this). Steam really irks me. I can see how people find it convenient, but when I buy a game that has a physical copy, I want to just sit down and get started.
#11
Good deal :thumbsup:, I'd been waiting on this to drop.

I've always quite liked using steam but I can see why it might be a pain if you have a slow connection.

Sounds like you need to get better broadband.
But if you right-click a game, go Properties / Updates, you can turn off auto updates.
#13
can someone please give me a definitive answer... i REALLY am tempted by this game,but don't want to be forced into Steam unless it really is worth it

it screwed up an old computer i had and i've managed to avoid it since so far (steam is the reason i own orange box on PS3 despite having Half-life 2 on PC... (man i love that game but hate the steam app)

Thanks for the pointer - I'll try it.

Sounds like you need to get better broadband.

But that it were that easy

BT cabled our area 'on the cheap' (that's according to a BT engineer). Instead of going house - cabinet - exchange it goes house - cabinet - cabinet - exchange. I.e. they piggy-backed off another cabinet rather than connecting directly to the exchange.

Currently to get better broadband I would need to move house. Gov't specified min std of 2Mbps - yes please.
