    Civ 4 complete or Civ 5

    Welcome to the Civilization Fanatics Forums, cav57. I would go with Civilization IV: The Complete Edition. You can get it pretty cheap now (GamersGate sells it for $24.95) and you shouldn't have any problem getting it to play on your laptop.

    Dislike the direction CIV5 is taking? Tell us how you'd do it!

    what if they will release Civ V on consoles?

    Who here remembers MoM's Wraiths?

    I never used the Wraiths exploit or chose Death Magic when I played Master of Magic. MoM is my favorite game of all time. I wish there would be an new release of the game that mainly updates the graphics without changing the basic game by "reimagining" it. Incidentally, if anyone is...

    Are you sticking with civ4?

    My sentiments exactly, binhthuy. I bought a new PC last week and installed Civilization IV: The Complete Edition on it. It looks like I'll be playing Civ4 for a long time--at least until Civ6 comes out.

    Civilization 5 Steamworks questions/concerns for inclusion in the FAQ

    Considering the hatred many gamers have for SecuROM, an endorsement by SecuROM for ANYTHING connected with PC gaming ought--at the very least--to arouse some distrust among gamers.
