It is annoying that they removed all the really great ideas incorporated into Civ IV Beyond the Sword. I was hoping Civ V would be so much more, but instead it was over simplified. The only thing I like about Civ V is the ranged attack. I only hope that someone will create an awesome Mod for this game, but then I read that even options for modding are more limited. It confuses my why they released a game that seems not ready for production and didn't even consider their loyal fanbase. All they needed to do was look at this civfanatics site to figure out what should be in Civ V. Better yet, why not hire on some of the modders from Civ IV who made the game so awesome.
