This is the kind of Civ I have always dreamed, about, and hope for. The boring, tedious micromanagement has always been a major flaw that is almost a game ruiner for me in Civ games. Another great thing is it is on a console. I was unable to play Civ 4 because my PC is crap. Yea I know people are complaining it is dumbed down, but anything is better then boring, tedious micromanagement. Also they said there will be larger maps you can unlock after you finish the game. So people don't have to worry about the game not being epic enough.
