I'll help. Call in sick, and then give me updates/reviews about the game.

So far: Wow.

The interface is so, so much cleaner and less cluttered than previous games. I've used the mouse the entire time even though I was so used to using the keyboard. I also like the notifications on the right side, and the way everything is presented. Graphics are beautiful.

Gold plays a much more pivotal role. You have to buy tiles to expand your borders, rather than normal growth via culture.

No more religion. Everything is done via "Social Policy" - which is kind of like the tech tree, you adopt certain policies which restrict you from adopting others, and you have prerequisites for others.

Combat - love it. No more stacking units. If a unit requires a special resource, you can only build one of those units if you only have one of that resource. Once you discover optics your units can "embark" - move on water!? WTF? They are useless in water though, so you have to be careful. It seems they are doing this to get rid of transport units...which I like.

Luxury resources - only 1 benefits you. Any others past that, you should just trade them.

City states - kind of annoying so far, but somewhat beneficial.

Haven't gotten in to diplomacy much yet, only have 1 bordering civilization, and he's behaved.

Currently in the Medieval era (Ancient, Classical, Medieval), so i'll have more to report later.

Ok - I was wrong, your borders DO expand when they gain enough culture, it is just slower than previous games.

All Civ leaders have different bonuses.

I started out on Chieftain - it is extremely easy like previous games.

From what I read, the AI doesn't necessarily get better on higher levels, but units have more hit points, research faster, etc...pretty much like the previous games.

I'm wondering about the "game length."

I always played CIV3 on conquest, and even playing 2 or 3 hours a night would have games that sometimes lasted for months before conquering the world.

Is it like that or more like the 2-5 hour quick games that you saw out of IV on the PS3?...
