Beware

by Mark on 9/23/2010

This isn't what I paid for, I don't mean the game, the game is fine, but with this version of Civilization you now have to register with Steam to even install the game. It's funny how they didn't mention that in any advertisement, maybe because they knew some of us wouldn't buy it? It's this kind of underhandedness that gives companies a bad reputation, it's unfortunate that the Sid Meier's franchise decided to engage in such a deceptive business practice. For $50 I shouldn't have to prove I'm not stealing. Read More

Not your father's CIV

by Rich on 10/8/2010

This is not CIV IV, only better. There are enough differences to make this a different, but still good, game. Hex grid, 1 unit-per-tile, and city-states are the major changes. The worst part is the requirement for a Steam account. My recommendation is that once the game is validated with Steam, set Steam to offline mode. That way you can still play the game even if the Steam servers are overloaded and not responding (which happens more often than it should). Go online only when updates are available in order to fetch them. In summary, the game is good but they should have not gone with Steam. Read More
