Props.

I played only Civ 3 - thought it was OK. Then again, I played Alpha Centauri before it, and thought it was absolutely awesome.

Actually I have friends in the US who were complaining of not being able to play it before some other people too. Not sure where it came out first.. it is pretty dumb though, in this day and age...

Stop looking at me! Look at me! Stop looking at me!
I have it. I am a Civ enthusiast, so it's not really the Civ for me.

They basically lobotomized the empire management aspects and improved the warfare aspects of it.

It plays much more like a war strategy game than a civilization planning game, which is, unfortunately, what I wanted.

It's not terrible by any means, its even kind of fun, but after your 4th or so game of warring, it start to feel like the same thing over again. Changing the target market makes me feel a bit mislead that it was called the direct successor to Civ 4.

I understand it gets more underwhelming the more you play.

after playing it for a decent chunk last night I have to agree, the further I went into it the more I was dissapointed. For me Civ 4 Beyond the Sword is the right balance of diplomacy, trade, research etc but this version seems too heavily combat based, I dont like the city states either, they dominate the map too much and constantly pester you.

Ill give it a week and then prolly go back to Civ4.
