Nerd alert...CIV 5 coming out on Sept 21...

I will have to clear my calendar...I still play Civ 4 way too much. Catherine of Russia RULES.

Only comp game I truly love.

Don't bother. If you're looking for a place to start with Civ, find Civ 2.

Civ 3 is a much better game than Civ 2, though. The diplomacy and cultural options make it much better. Civ 4 streamlined and expanded on the concepts that they introduced in Civ 3.

I'd be suprised if you could even find a version of Civ 1 that would work on a modern computer.

Civ 4 is the best Civ to date, and without a doubt, Civ 5 will make Civ 4 obsolete. Sid Meier doesn't jerk with his franchise.

BTW... Civ is not a sequential thing. They just keep improving the previous versions by adding new concepts and strategies to pursue (and of course, graphics).

If you're looking for an entry point Civ V is going to be just as good as any. Just play on the easy mode until you're ready to move up.

The bottom line for Civ: The game is easy to learn but difficult to master.

I was gathering that...

Still loved LOTR2 though.

Might have to give Civ 4 a look..


Is there somewhere online that everyone plays?

That's one franchise that I always wanted to, but never actually got down to playing.

If you ever feel retro, only play the first one.

I go retro quite often actually. I have Masters of Orion II on deck right now, but probably won't get to it until well after I'm done with Starcraft II and then Civ V.

Thanks Saul...I am looking forward to it as well. Removing the stacks of doom and playing only one unit per tile is going to change everything...I am thinking that an entirely new level of strategy is going to be warranted.

Agreed - I think it will make individuals units much more useful. I often did not produce certain units, especially ranged units, because it was easier and quicker just to produce a mass amount of foot soldiers (swordsman, rifleman, infantry, etc).
