I know you guys are going to jump all over this and call me a "troll", or this or that, but I don't care. This game is a watered down piece of garbage. It is a great combat strategy game, but that is only a minor province in what a good Civ game should be. I am so disappointed. I know it is only a video game, but the Civ series is probably my favourite of all time, and I feel like as a member of its core fan base, I have been betrayed to the demons of "accessibility" and "marketability" that are the coin phrases and staples of any modern game developer. These translate to watered down and shallow. That pretty much sums this game up. Sure, it is more complex than say, Halo, but this is CIV, and these games are supposed to be deep in many ways. Anyway, you are now free to respond and inform me of all the ways in which I am a troll. I don't care. This is my opinion. This game is HORRIBLE.
