    Japanese are good tech, Aztecs/Zulu are good eco/dom.

    I'll second the Japanese, Aztec and Zulu. Check the deity strategy topic around.

    Mongols are really good for the early cities you get from barbarians. Get those keshiks out early.

    It's kinda true, though. Just trying different civs out and seeing how they do is pretty much 100% of the game.

    All the Civs are good. Try them all out until you find one you really like. They're all powerful but you need to know how to use them right. I think the Romans and Americans are the most powerful for noobs though.

    (i cant spell so plese bear with me)

    if your in arcapelago or continents and want a domination victory i would go for the english

    in pagia and domination victory i would go for the zulu or aztexs.

    if your on contenent or pagia and want an econimical victory go for the egyptians

    if your in arcapelago and want an econimcal victory go for the japanese.

    Nat, this is the Revolution section. Probably you are talking about BTS.

    Nah he's talking about Revolution, there's no economic victory in Civ IV, but why he's talking about maps like you have a choice I have no idea.
