researched everything. is that all? I mean they have removed a lot of stuff. there is no pollution (except if you use nukes), AI's act stupid, 5 artillery and one tank and you can take one city per turn, airplanes don't get shot down, city-states act stupid, buildings don't have bad effects (like unhealthiness or pollution). the coolest thing is that resources actually get used up (sometimes maybe a little too fast lol;-), I missed that in previous civ games (in civ 4 they rarely got used up, but it was never a real problem). It's okay that they change the game, but it seems like they changed it to a family-friendly game. I only play at level 3 (or maybe it is 4) though. does civilizations act more logic on higher levels, or does it only mean it takes longer to research, longer to build units/buildings and that it is harder to make gold? if that is all I might be ready to go back to civ 4 again. that is sad since I started to enjoy civ 5 the first 200-300 turns. I normally play marathon games, maybe that has something to do with it?
