Tried demo, didn't convince me to buy it. It's actually weird why I don't like this game. I like strategy games alot in general and total wars for example, are one of my favourite games ever. Civ just doesn't work for me :/

See there are two schools here. I on my part can't enjoy Total War for long. Civ is more my type of Strategy.
Anyhow TW is realtime and Civ is turnbased, so not really comparable.

Actually, TW is turn based also, and usually I just auto resolve battles, unless it is really tight and I suspect I lose if I auto resolve  ;).

I still try to give this another go...

ajappat: tiny map, quick speed and 3 AI = not the real civ experience. You'll want at least 10 AI ( I always went with 18) on at least a large map, with marathon (or whatever it's called these days) speed. Then you get the real civ experience.

Played the demo and kind of liked it. Will probably buy it when it gets bit cheaper.

No luck for me, the demo crashes immediately after double clicking on the icon.

Same thing for me. I guess I won't be getting this game either :-\

Didn't work for me on IV, I doubt it will on V.

Oh god Civ 5 is pure evil... I was sick today and since being stuck at home left me alone with my PC and the shiny Civ5 box there was just so much I could do... and so I fired it up around 10am when I felt better, clicked the first end of turn button und then... well just now I started to feel hungry and so I looked at the watch and... oh my, I lost 7 hours to the game and didn't notice it.


Anyhow I love liberating city states and sponsoring wars by contributing units and money. ^^

Oh no, Civ 5 released today -> brother bought it -> I didn't know it was Steam game (no, seriously didn't) -> can be installed on one pc only (well ok, on one steam account) -> I have to buy myself a own copy -> not buying

Seriously, this game realllllly dissapointed me :( Maybe because I didn't read enough about it, this information must be old as heck but I just realised this.... Well I'll just spend my moneys one something else, nuff said.

And it's just not possible to borrow your brother's Steam account every now and then? I mean, it looks like you were going to play with the same copy anyway?

Yeah ville, just install your brothers steam account on your pc, then install the game and run it in offline mode. That way both of you can play at the same time.
