    You may wish to rethink your thread title.

    Can't help reading that as Civ V scording 9 out of 20. :D
    It doesn't help that the date's written in reverse order to a lot of the world's own convention.

    I think that site itself is having problems. I just read the review and can't load or refresh the page. It'll likely sort itself out in a few.

    I reported my thread to see if a mod can change the date in the title for better multinational consideration.

    Have you ever seen a review with a top score of 20?The only ones I have seen is just 10 or 100.To me that should have told you he was referring to the date :p ;)

    Actually x/20 reviews happen fairly often in european sites (french ones at least). My heart skipped a beat when I read the title :)

    That's so true! :lol::lol::lol:

    Anyway, things look promising so far. Biggest problem seems to be that the AI is not good at tactics.

    Do you suspect that it's the "cleanest" because they want to leave open the possibility of bringing it to the console?

    Any way it looks like bombers can be loaded on to aircraft carriers.

    Lol. Rofl.

    They say it is the most complex game Civ game ever, and you look for a single word in the same sentence and try to make it say that the game has been simplified for the console market?

    I can't even begin to describe what is wrong with that thought process. Stop looking for evidence to back up your theory - look at the evidence and then make your theory


    Sheeesh.

    strictly speaking, you should create a hypothesis and then test its validity with neutral techniques

    looking for evidence to back up and theory and looking for a theory based on the evidence both lead to bias
