All the new ideas and mechanics are very interesting but what is the point if AI's don't make use of them ? Deity / Trajan : build legions and siege towers and take any city you want, no need to bother with anything else in the game : techs, social policy, happiness, money, diplomacy, culture, religion : all these don't matter. AI's never do anything that make any sense, just send stupid messages, where is the challenge ? A great strategy game for patzers, as it is. All the professional reviewers ranked it from very good to great, game of the year ?! These people are not serious or not honest, they should keep reviewing shooters or RPG's and keep away from strategy games.
