    Yep, I gotta agree. They did a great job of balancing the existing formula with new and interesting features.

    10/10.

    A game that's unplayable isn't a game.

    Nice manual, shame about the software.

    Thanks for nothing Firaxis.

    'Magnifique' from France here. Great game! A few instabilities, but nothing a patch can't fix...Haven't lost so much sleep since my student years!

    Thank you Sid and all the team.
    A really good job and lots of flexibility to make the things that things that are merely 'very good' even better.

    Congratulations - I'll be buying Civ V when it comes out..

    As a previous poster already said, its a lot of little things-all together-which make this such a brilliant and addictive game, but some which immediately come to mind are-the multitude of terrain improvements and unit promotions means that players have a VAST number of choices to make in the game pretty much from the get-go (rather than the old Road, Mine, Farm routine); the diplomacy and religion systems really add a whole new exciting dimension to international relations; the ability of smaller nations to actually survive AND prosper is great; the unit-voices, music and voice-over by Leonard Nimoy may just be 'ear candy', but they really add to the immersiveness of the game. Oh and, trust me, if I didn't have to work 8 hours a day-you would probably never have heard me raving about this game either!

    Yours,
    Aussie_Lurker.
