I'm not a big gamer, and don't even know what most of them you guys talk about actually "are".....but Count me in for a seat of Civ IV......III was pretty cool.

The civ franchise is awesome. I can still spend hours playing the first one.

Civ II was the best ... i loved the challenge of trying to balance out the research/tech tree etc.

they jacked around with the research tree in civ III and i didn't like it as much. They also completely changed the diplomatic part of the game in Civ III which sucked. :(


it will be interesting see which way they go in IV

I liked the culture feature in Civ III. That was its big "selling" point. There is only so much you can do in Civ II though...

I played a little of Civ3 and it's pretty addicting. I just could never understand how computer's "cavalry" with muskets and swords could defeat my "tanks".

The guys in the tanks were laughing so hard that the enemy was able to get close enough to enter the tank?

I've had a modern armor fall to a pikeman before. Doesn't happen often.

Hopefully they fixed that nonsense shit in the new one.

One tank could be used to conquer the whole f*cking world during the mideval times, I don't care how many burning rocks and arrows you shoot at it.

I doubt that. It would run out of ammo!

No, I'm saying if you were able to produce modern (or even WWII) tanks during the medieval times (like in Civ3), all you would need would be one tank to take care of the whole world.

Tanks are kinda weak in Civ 3. I always thought they should have higher defense. But after you get Modern Armor, its no contest. Whoever gets to that first can obliterate the enemies.

I haven't played Civ three at all. I heard that you have to plan for more situations. I remember in Civ 1 I would lose a battleship to a phalanx every once in while. I am not familiar with the diplomatic aspect of Civ 3 but I always felt that the diplomatic options were rather limiting.

I felt III's diplomatic options were limited as well, but still better than II or I's. In III you can form an alliance, have a right of passage, mutual protection pact, and of course trade agreements. War and peace is pretty straight forward.

One of my main qualms with Civ 3 and prior Civ's was the only way you could be very successful was to expand like CRAZY early on. My main concern in the stone age was to build cities and road networks, and I really didn't concentrate on much else.

Supposedly "Expansionism is on life support" with Civ IV, which encourages BETTER cities, rather than MORE cities.

I can't wait.

What about WWI tanks?

What about Civil war era attempts at armored vehicles?

Just because the game says you have a tank doesn't mean you have a WWII capable tank.

Between this and Black & White 2, I'll be wasting a lot of time.

In that case it did. And even then, pikemen from the middle ages shouldn't be able to defend against WWI tanks.
