Ok, I made an account just to be able to list this. The good part: *Nice colours *Good immersion *Simple enough and yet fun *Less city micro managing (this is what's been keeping me from the PC-line). The bad part: *Why are they even allowed to call that poor slip of paper a manual? I want something that an help me, not something pointing to the ingame civilopedia. If I didn't find it there, why the *beep* do you think I'm looking here? (This goes for all console games unfortunately). E.g: If I've never seen a desert tile, how do I tell one apart from for example a plains tile? *Special units without special stats/abilities? Then why on earth include them? Shouldn't be bragging about them on the cover anyhow. *Stupid, stupid AI. All act like their in a team against you. Which would be fine if they were, but they're not! *No world overview, in either map or zoom. Now I've played games with a steep learning curve like Hearts of Iron 2 and such so I don't mind a game that takes a little time to get into but this lousy manual sure is my biggest gripe on the game. It feels like I have to spend time trying to figure out boring details rather than winning stratagems. (Still new to the game). I like still it and I don't see that changing in the near future but I hope that developers listen to fan base before making sequel. There are a lot of good ideas around here.
