Pretty disappointed....played Civ 1 up to 4 then stepped away for a number of years. At Prince level, I find the computer AI is too smart by half...I guess the programmers think it is cool to have you almost ready for science victory and then have city after city breakout with partisans that cripple/destroy facilities....or in another game...have another civ a half a world away appear from the edges of the map and take out your cities with spaceports. I tried several games focused on combat....boring. Also, replacing building roads and railroads with trade route auto creation....why???? Guess I will check back in a couple of years. Not gonna play a game literally for hours and then have programmers get needlessly cute in the last hundred turns. Got bettah things to do.
