    Where is the option: "neither"? Civ4 has run its course and I've already returned Civ5 for a refund, so I am interested in neither expansions.

    Did you know that in certain countries there are consumer protection laws concenrning refunds? Laws trump Steam's policies or whatever the EULA says.

    A new expansion for Civ4.

    Civ0.V has got its chance and failed.
    They should stop any working on it and directly move on to Civ6.

    I would buy a settler because you could always use an extra city.

    What a shame - people like you don't deserve a penny.

    Since Civ V is much more desperately in need of expansion/patches, I'll take the Civ V one.

    I am pretty sure he was lying. So don't worry about it. There are always people on forums claiming they returned the game, and in the few times I have seen them try and explin how they rarely have a plausible story.

    Having worked at various retailers and spent time in other countries, I can safely say that is not completely true.

    Whether an item gets returned is often completely dependent on who's working the returns desk, and on the accepted practices of the country you're in.

    Outside of the US, it's often possible to return things that wouldn't generally be returnable.

    European countries, in general, have far better consumer protection laws.

    I can't imagine a publisher doing that. They'd make more money off announcing a new expansion for Civ V, since you'd have to buy Civ V to play it.

    And realistically, the cost of getting a development team up to speed on Civ IV again would seem prohibitive to me.

    Make an expansion for cIV with better graphics, hexes and a number of game play changes like strategic resources and it would sell really, really well.

    I would definitely buy that.

    Provided there was a demo first and I would wait to see the reviews from unbiased people who played it first. (ie not game play reviewers)

    I choose neither.

    if in the civ5 expansion(s) they implement stuff that was already cooked up in previous civ versions im not paying a dime. I paid for every civ game and expansion so far like a good boy, and every one implemented new idea's and mechanics. I fear the next epansions will incorperate a lot of aspects from previous civ games, mostly 4, and that to me will feel like milking the cash cow just a wee bit too much.

    but maybe im just bitter right now hehe. I had high expectations, like most people, for this one.

    Depends on what the expansions would bring.
