I am on here trying to read some good reviews. So far I am reading poor reviews, or just fan boys saying CiV rocks and is the best without explanations. Maybe everyone is too busy playing CiV so can't comment on it right now. I have played the demo. I am not thrilled it took me so long to get the demo working on my laptop. Yes I know I am at minimum specs, but still, I shouldn't have to take this long to get it to work. So I have a few questions first of all, and second of all, sell the game to me. What do you find fun and why. If something is bad, please explain why as well. Just saying it sucks, or the game is the best dosn't explain anything. 1) For one thing I do not like, I turn Steam off, and then I start the demo, and then Steam starts. Does the full version does this as well? I thought this game can be played without Steam. 2) For people who are playing with minimum specs, can you play the game on large or huge maps? How are the inbetween turns in the mid and late stages of the game? 3) Please feel free to make any comments you want about the game, good or bad. But please give an explanation as to why. If it rocks, why does it rock. If it sucks why does it suck? What features are great, what features are no good? I am not soldfrom playing the demo. I am shocked at how little to no "This is the greatest game ever" threads. I am surprised how very little "this game is good" threads. So if you are going to post in this thread please be respectful, and explain why this is good and why you like or love this game. If you do not like it or hate it, please explain yourself as well. From what I read, I will base my purchase or lack of purchase from reading your comments. Thanks ahead of time for participating in this thread.
