Voted for V, but playing both. Have a Civ4 pbem game going.
Messing up isn't the issue. A general inability to make the game fly and have fun is my issue. For example:
At settler level in 2785BC a warrior costs 120 hammers which is 20 turns in my size 3 capital city. Just for comparison, the Great Library would take me 63 turns, so basically building 3 warriors in my current game is the hammer equivalent of building a Wonder. Now that just doesn't feel right in terms of balance!
I'm about to start another game - I think choosing marathon speed for the last one was an error
I took a break from Civ for the last 4-5 years. I owned all of the Civ Games 1-5 with all expansions and SMAC/X. After reading all these posts about how good IV wasI wish I would have spent more time on IV with expansions.
I'm playing V and I love the 1UT, Hex Map, the social policies, and newer graphics. Although I had to roll my nvidia drivers back to stop games crashes. The games seems slow even with quadcore, 4gb of ram, and a nvidia 8800gt. Even with the new features I like, the game does feel like it's missing something.
I will play 2-3 more games of V and if I still feel its lacking. I will give IV w/ BotS a couple of months then come back to V.
I voted for Civ5 due to these things:
1) 1 UPT
3) Better graphics
4) The animated leaders
I just feel that at the moment Civ5 is more interesting to play than Civ4.
