*gaming - sorry, couldn't resist.

very nice deal on Civilisation V, sucks for anyone who's just bought it on Steam!

LOL sorry for the typo did not see that thanks

Hot from me, great price.

Thankfully I received an email about this from Green Man Gaming earlier in the week before it was reduced on steam as I would have gone for that.

Great price for a very under-rated game.

Very nice price!

I got this on Monday and have been playing it a fair bit. While it's fun, it's very buggy, slow and in many ways inferior to Civ 4.

Price - at present you can't beat it for Civ 5

Game - same as Retrofrooze, buggy, need a supercomputer to deal with the graphics and for me not as engrossing as Civ 4, which you can pick up for much less than £10.90

Retrofooze

it's very buggy, slow and in many ways inferior to Civ 4.



Buggy doesn't begin to cover it. The AI combat just doesn't work, so war is ridiculously uncompetitive.

This is just appalling at the moment. In fact some of the 8 patches released since launch have actually introduced bugs that weren't even there before.

The ideas behind Civ 5 were nice (1 unit/tile, fewer & more important cities), but the implementation is just flipping awful. Avoid.

Cool deal. By that I mean hot!
However I'm probably going to happily play Civ IV instead and wait for the CivV complete edition somewhere down the line.

I wasn't going to post this as i thought that the site wasn't allowed, but I think that it was Yawma coming to think of it.

Great deal, I hope they don't run out of keys, need to spend some of my credit on there!

Does anyone know if you have to install their "capsule" client, or if they just give you the serial number to activate directly into steam? Surely the latter as it's a Steam-only game?

I've got enough game downloaders on this computer, could do without having another one!

Thanks

I think that you will just need the key. I have mount and blade on there, and I can see the key on the site. I f the same is with Civ just copy it into steam like normal. I should be able to tell you at midnight as I'm doing a civ 4 all nighter with my brother and mates and getting civ 5 at midnight.

Also does anyone know if it is 50% off current price or 50% off the rrp price on site(£24.99)?

I was wondering this as the RRP is 39.99 for this game will they just reduce it to 20 quid? hopefully he has inside info and it will be available for a tenner.

no they send you a key and you go onto steam to add it and download the game well its what i did for the football one they had for £14 or there abouts

almost bought it off steam earlier.... thanks heat added

updated the price still a good deal thanks all

Sly , they've done it 50% off the rrp not the £22 they have had it at for ages.

will still get it though.

It is just a key, no need for their capsule thing, though I find it quicker than Steam most of the time.

Still a good deal, thanks scooter! And thanks for confirming about the key, A.Fudge!

thanks eggy claw i have put the update on the main post

Boo..., my laptop doesn't want to run this - stupid 8400M GT!!
Still, can't be all bad if it's inferior to Civ IV.

This should be scorching hot!

Original Poster

it may get there in the end

I'll vote hot for the price, but civ V wasn't a patch on civ iv. I also hate steam with a passion. The scumbags prevent me from selling on my games 2nd hand. I bought Civ V, hated it, and now I'm stuck with it. What [email protected]@rds!

only 2 1/2 to go

Looks live they've pulled it early as page error has been listed despite 2 hours left on the clock countdown.
