To answer this, i prefer a STRATEGY game to have STRATEGY behind it, not lets stack 100 units and go to town. Id prefer to have to move my units strategically. That in fact is WAY better in Civ 5. Civ 4 had alot of concepts in it left behind by 5 sure, but could they eventually come back? Yes. I enjoy this game much better then 4. Sure theres its issues, but every game has them. Stop being such a downer, and enjoy what you have.
