I'm something of a newbie to CIV3, although I've played quite a few games. I don't delve into the technical issues of gameplay all that much. I was recently wondering, however, if people have a general preference for occupying enemy cities or razing them. I'm playing as Egypt on a nice "huge" map. I'm settled between Rome and Greece. If I don't attack them and reduce them, they will crush me eventually. So I must strike them first (one at a time, of course). I'm uncertain whether I should attempt to occupy and settle conquered cities or simply raze them. Your thoughts and advice will be appreciated. Thanks.
