I like many things about civ V, and overall I think it is a step in the right direction. My biggest rant is stability. Quite often I'll play for 30 or 40 turns with no problems, then I'll have a stall when leader or splash screen comes up and it forces a restart. If they could really work to iron out the stability that would be the thing. However, overall the hexes, 1UPT, social policies, civs, etc. are pretty fun.
