    Woth It ?

    So I'm wondering what the consensus is here as to whether CIV V is worth it or not. Almost all of the opinions I see on Amazon are negative, but that seems to be mostly complaints about STEAM. I might be willing to deal with STEAM and give it a shot if I could get some serious opinions from some you who play it.

    I am currently playing IV.

    I have over a thousand hours on it and I still find new nuances to the game, not to mention I havent yet touched Mods or even played much of the very fun custom maps. I have no problem saying its the best strategy game I ever played, and Ive been playing them for some 20 years now.

    How much trouble was STEAM for you and getting to the point that you could play offline without a hassle ?

    Civ V is great for single player.
    Multi-player still has issues that will never get fixed.
    I gave up on Civ V a few months ago and haven't logged into STEAM in half a year, and when I finally uninstalled Steam, my account got hacked.

    I got about a dozen emails that looked like this:

    I had to create a support account and was able to get everything fixed by killing my account. So Civ V hit the trash.

    So, as far as STEAM games go.... I'm 1 and done.

    Ive never had a single problem with steam. When my wireless is off, I just start it on offline mode.

    Steam does not cause any issues.

    Civ5 is a very good game, it is certainly worth it, but after a few years I got bored and went back to Civ4.

    It is kinda worth it, but there are major drawbacks in comparison to older versions. The best game in the civ series so far is Civ 4, that's the one you want to buy even though it is older. My main opinion why is because of the stack limitation in civ 5 of one unit per tile but that's really just the beginning and only an analogy for the rest of the flaws, I guess they were trying to revamp the mechanics, but it was a major fail in my mind, even though some of the ideas in Civ 5 were great, like city bombarding and waiting for cities to evolve from colonies to become actual cities. Anyway, the point to takeaway is BUY CIV 4 and the expansions and then the Rise of mankind mod and you will be impressed, and if you aren't you have mental issues.

    Every syllable in this answer applies to me as well. I have also never had ANY problems with Steam, but I use a mac, so maybe that makes a difference.

    I actually prefer that units can't be stacked. More strategic thinking required, and it makes the game that much closer to a highly evolved chess game. I especially like the hexagonal board.

    IMHO if CIV 4 had long range units it would be my choice over Civ 5. Civ 5 now is fun up to the point where you get a city from "the enemy"
    due to his money issued ( or some thing else ). At that point I just quit and go back to "combat" only -- and if you set that at 6 it is a challenge.
