I dont know if im alone having recognized this, but Civ 2 hasnt the same "map-feeling" as Civ 1. In Civ 2 it feels like everything is more near to each other than in Civ 1. And the enemies seems to reach you faster and in a more brutal way. In Civ 1 you can hide in a corner of the world and it can take up to 3000 years before you meet another civ. Also Colonization has that map-feeling. You have plenty of time to develop your colonies before enemies or indians attack you. I think Civ 3 had a better map-feeling, but de later versions just suck in that matter. What do you think?
