    I'm occasionally tempted -- the extra polish of Firaxis-made civs is a pleasant touch, as is the assurance that they'll be readily updated when new patches roll out. But as of now, I've bought nothing. I have zero interest in paying for new maps: in that category, there is nothing Firaxis can do that the Civilization community cannot. My psychological price barrier for new civs -- accepting that I'm paying for the scenarios, compatibility and graphical polish Firaxis adds more than I am the civs themselves -- is $1.99 (or $3.99 for the Inca/Spain pack); if they go on sale for that price or less, I shall splurge, but until then, the cost is just too high, especially considering the balance concerns I have with some of them.

    Not yet. I have Babylon from Digital Deluxe, but haven't bought any of the actual piecemeal DLC. When it one day goes on sale at Steam/Direct2Drive I'll probably pick it up, but it's a little pricey in my opinion. And definitely not picking up the map packs, which are completely overpriced.

    Yea, though I am not going to feed their lame money bags with my cash until
    they fix the game and make an EXPANSION. I was willing to spend money
    on the spanish, inca, and even Babylon, but some lame country like polynesia?
    Not a chance!

    I've bought the civ DLCs. Perhaps somewhat overpriced though.

    I still don't see why buy more content for a game whose original content is broken.

    What???? :lol:

    I'm guessing you don't like Civ V, so here's a suggestion, when you are offered optional DLC, do not buy. :goodjob:

    I refuse to pay for extra content before the core game is finished.

    :goodjob: Good advice:D

    I really wanted to like it. I think it will be great as a multiplayer game or a mod one day.

    On the bright side, the patch downloads forced me to modernize my router, which makes me happy, now that I have it.:king:

    I did by the DLC... all of them, and I will continue to do so. I think the days of expansion packs are coming to an end and we will all see DLC take its place. You see it with online console games already and I think the same will go for PC gaming. Now, as to whether or not that's a good thing or a bad thing, I don't know... we'll have to wait to find that out. But, I just enjoy playing Civ V too much to pass up purchasing the DLC. I have enjoyed the new civilizations that have been released via the DLC and I have enjoyed the scenarios thus far. Of course, I just purchased the Polynesia DLC today so I'll have to play them a little bit before I can say if I like them or not. Otherwise, I'd say get used to DLC being released this way because I think we are going to see a lot more of it.

    I bought the civ packs (Babylon, Spain & Inca, Polynesia) last night. I've not played them a lot yet, so no judgements on how they are, but my first game with Babylon is very nice so far.

    I am obviously not going to buy the map packs. 3 euro's for a simple map seems ridiculous to me.
