    Civ4 is a great game I give it:

    - 4 out of 5 for Single player
    - 5 out of 5 for Multiplayer

    The expansion appears to focus on Military aspects of the game which will make the expansion worth buying IMO!!

    Get the 1.61 patch. The black terrain is a known problem with the initial release. I think it was an ATI problem... not too sure, but it doesn't matter, as it was fixed.

    If absolutely everything is black apart from your units then it's possible your graphics card is the problem (check out the tech support forum here for more info on what's required and general help).

    But if you can see a little ground beneath your people's feet (perhaps grassland, hills or a few trees, a nearby coast, river or lake perhaps) then this is perfectly normal! Basically your people know nothing about the world apart from the immediate environment they find themselves in - you need to go out and explore, push back the darkness, and find out about the land you live on. You may well find yourself restricted to an island or continent and it will take many years to research sailing and build ships so you can go off and explore the 'unknown' parts of the world overseas. It's fun! :D
