    Hi,

    I have been away from Civ 4 for a long time. I wanted to get back into it and I wasn't sure if I should get the Beyond the Sword or the new Colonization game?

    I tend to like complex strategy games which one of the games will be the best fit? I read mixed reviews on Colonization so I am not sure which game will be a bigger challange.

    Also, is there a Civ 5 or another version of Civilization on the horizon?

    Thanks.
    Mash

    Beyond the Sword, definitely.

    If you still want Colonization, wait until the first few patches come out, since it sucks right now according to the overwhelming majority of posters in the Civ4Col Forum.

    Nothing has been announced yet, though I suspect there will be a Civ 5 eventually. It's too much of a money maker for Take-Two to pass up. As for Civ 4 expansions, there won't be anymore. Firaxis has more or less stated they've done as much as they're going to do with it.
