if it rocks seriously, tell me :) i hope better than 4, it was too micro and too hard to actually make an empire

Unfortunately I will be missing out cos I don't use Steam.

Back to IV instead for me.

Not entirely sure I like the new combat though. Does it feel better or worse?

Honestly, I think Civ5 is a big disappointment. The AI and diplomacy are horrible. And it's very prone to crashing. Multiplayer is the biggest disappointment, though. Basically, it's a stripped down version of single-player, with no leaderheads or unit animations. Combat is a huge improvement but since the AI is so bad, it doesn't feel fair. I've played two games so far and have been able to take over entire continents with a total of 4 or 5 units. Especially easy since the AI is so willing to give you all of its cities for a peace treaty. I have lots of minor aesthetic complaints and interface complaints as well. You don't get a real sense of progress or where you stand in comparison to other civs. The music isn't as good as Civ4. I swear they play the same song over and over no matter what era you're in. I think I still prefer Civ4. I suggest trying the demo before you buy.
