I should be way over min specs for this game: Phenom ll X4 2.8GHz 8GB DDR3 Win 7 Home SAPPHIRE 100284L Radeon HD 5750 1GB Right? But no. My first game I at least got up to the early Industrial before it started video crashing every couple of turns -- but at that point I had 10-15 real cities and another 10 puppets, plus a big world explored. I cranked down the video settings to minimum and was able to keep playing. Current game -- 350 BC and it's crashing every turn. I have 3 cities; I've only explored half the continent and only met 2 AIs. It's a small, small map, and I only put the video settings back to medium levels. This is ridiculous. Totally disappointing. I'd love to be debating IV vs V on the merits of the game -- so far, I am enjoying 1UPT and love ranged combat, don't love the opaque diplomacy -- but it's irrelevant because the f*$&#& thing crashes all the time. Sadly I will probably keep trying with minimum graphics -- but I shouldn't have to, and it means that either the QA on this was seriously lacking, or they ignored the QA just to put a broken game out.
