Still addicted to Civ IV. No doubt this game will be amazing to.
#2
It feels quite different...not convinced whether it's better or worse yet.
#3
Biggest fan in the World of Civ 4 Beyond the Sword (Thomas' Mod being my favourite mod).

Have been looking forward to Civ 5 for years though.

It seemed to get good reviews too.

However, now having played it, all I can say is.....it's an absolute disaster.

This is more like the heavily dumbed down Civ Revolutikn on the Xbox. They were so determined to make it 'accessible' to new players, they forgot about the loyal fans thR have been played Civ for decades.

They have changed way to much and taken too much out from Civ 4. Something Sid said he would never do.

Not to mention the game runs like a piece if crap as well. There are memory leaks all over the place. Think again about long games on big maps. That's another thing, games are now so short you lose all sense of epicness.

But hey, it has pretty graphics and a curvy interface! If you have never played Civ before I think this would still be a great game. However, for fans of Civ 4, I reckon you will hate this - there's just too much missing got simplicitys sake. No religion for example, no culture city flipping.

I'm sure it will get better over the years, as Civ 4 did, thY didn't have a great start either to be honest. But for now, Civ 4 Neyond the Sword with its thousands if mods is still the far superior game.

I was worried someone would say this because it looks massively different. I have a feeling it won't be as addictive as Civ 4. Probably just as well to be honest because I've lost countless hours playing Civ 4!

Hopefully the modders will soon sort it out. The vanilla version of Civ 4 is pretty appalling too, once you've played Rise of Mankind. With a bit of luck, the same applies here.
#6
I actually haven't played Rise of Mankind yet, I see there is even an expansion for it too (Rise of Mankind: New Dawn).

My favourite was End War, but then Thomas' War was just amazing.

I prefer the mods that 'expand' the game more than anything ie new units, civcs, tech, religions etc.

Will try Rise of Mankind too, it looks great.

These mods make CIV 4 like a brand new game, we don't need CIV 5 the way it is. As NykDigital said though, CIC 4 was very bad initially, so give it a few years and hopefully CIV 5 will be the game we all wanted it to be.

I only really enjoyed Civ IV after the expansions, especially Beyond The Sword. Having said that, at the moment, Civ IV + expansions & mods is the superior game. Civ 5 is more combat orientated (no need for transports/no stacking units and being able to buy units from the start). Civ 5 is not much more than a potentially great game in my opinion. Looking forward to mods/expansions.
