    Oh yes most definitely.Especially since 3 will have no multiplay at first release.I imagine it will be all 3 for a bit.If it sucks..well I still have Civ2:).If its good..well...there are still lots of scenarios being made for civ2.I will be playing civ2 in one form another for pretty much the rest of my gaming life I beleive.Many years and many dollars were spent looking for a game like civ2.Now that I finally found it....you need to work hard to get me to forget about it.

    If it is as good as it looks....then no. How could anyone???

    Except for multiplayer. At least until Civ 3 MP is released.

    Definitely play Civ II, despite its known issues.
    The computer requirements, and simplicity, will be less than civ III, yet the graphics will be acceptable for decades. The graphics of games like Civ I and Empire (text graphics!) really are almost unusable by current and future yardsticks. Even some arcade games of 20+ years ago still fulfill their nich against newcomers.

    So, yes to Civ II. Complex, but not overwhelming. Low machine requirements, and good speed. :goodjob:

    I wish they would let me have the Civ II source code to repair the major deficiencies after Civ III is released, as a public service to all, LOL! ;)

    Rarely, I think. I just don't think it will compare to 3. Stuff that pisses me off while playing 2 will hopefully cease to exist (6 barbarians on a trireme :mad: for one.)

    But I could be wrong (a first :D)

    I doubt you will see this in Civ3. Barbs will have encampmensts in Civ3. This probably means they no longer use ships. :slay:

    Thats funny.

    I will still play Civ 2 for awhile longer because I have to wait for it to come out in England and also Civ 2 is a great game to play online because the taskbar still shows up so I can still talk to other people etc.

    Another thing is that Civ2, unlike CTP2 does not like sporadicallycrashing...This means I have to regularily save the game and if this happens in Civ 3 then I will be annoyed. My comp should be able to handle it but onlyy just.

    Sure, I'll still play Civ2. I don't really see what's so bad about that. Sheesh, I still play Civ1 from time to time.

    I will still play civ ii, why not? it's a amazing game.
    The only reason I don't still play Civ i is that the CD is corrupted.

    Nothing better than a game of civ2-well besides that u perverts. Anyways ive played civ2 since it came out-i am a true fan and will never toss it in a dark place after civ3 comes out. Every weekend my friends and i get together on the zone and play a game -its a tradition---and somebody gotta keep it going:D
