I tried updating the video drivers and changing the account name, since many reported that having accentuated characters in it (é, è, ö, ä...) caused the crash.

Sounds like a reasonable start. What does the error window say?

It's the typical "Program has encountered a problem and needs to be shut down"  message.

I'm puzzled as to what to do since 2k forums have so many topics on related bugs and so many crazy solutions that worked for some but not for me.

Hmm sorry, I'm at a loss here as well.
Could it be your Graphic's drivers being outdated?

Played some MP tonight and all i can say is that im dissapoint. I couldnt see the save button so i had to press Ctrl+S to save the game and even worse was that MP doesnt have animations of the leaders nor movement so it seemed like they would be teleporting from place to place  :-\

Wait, you wanted to save a running multiplayer game or at the end? Doesn't it offer you that choice once you quit it?
The missing movement animations is odd, did you check your settings, there is a button where you can switch them off to save time.

Things like that make CIV so damn amazing, every time you start a new game you never know what's gonna happen

So true.
I love the little stories that might unfold during gaming. I for example had a really peaceful run only having to fend off Arctic pirates which attacked my trade routes with cruisers now and then, but still enjoyed giving the city states my covert support by supplying them with weapons while the British tried really hard to expand against them. (to bad that you can't gift A-Bombs and Planes....^^ )

I wouldn't say it's just for fans. I believe there is a market out there with enough people who don't need games that play as if they are on ecstasy.

Hey, I play Silent Hunter as well! I ain't no graphics whore :P

I just think a couple of factions and basicly more of the same is not enough anymore, but I guess if it plays like a CIV2 in HD all is well. Most of the current buyers probably weren't even born then.

Played the demo until it told me it was over, thank god it did. I would have never stopped if that had been the full game.

Ramses and me were like: Wazzup bitches, I got the motherfucking chariot with shooting arrows! And then Bismarck and Alexander got pissed because I raped two city-states in one second (Rio and Brussels)

And Copenhagen was being overrun by barbarians, those silly Danes were like: omfg lol wtf thank you Ramses for your über chariots and I was like: no prob I'ma gonna go plunder Germany through Rome, wanna come KKTHXBBQl8r

And then the demo ended

Thank god

Tried the demo once more, got a chance to try Darius and his Persia

Bloody England and their Queen started to fuck things up by buying every damn city-state in range

I made friends by acting like a fire department, only difference is that they call me when
they find a barbarian camp :D

EDIT: And also, damn this game runs good! My laptop is anything but fresh and god knows I have had problems with some new games for some time

Game is awsome
I dont know how it got such bad reviews on Amazon.
It misses some things like adjusting science rate etc but the rest is solid.
And combat pwns. No more can Knights kill my Helicopter gunships!
