They should really have called this game Civ Revolutions 2,One word to describe Civ 5 perfectly: simplification. Or maybe: disappointment.
They should really have called this game Civ Revolutions 2, because that is how it plays like.
As a long term Civfanatic I played every Civgame since Civ I, and I can't help but feel terribly disappointed by Firaxis newest game. Although, after the bad Colo game I saw it coming.
The Major flaws imho: hexagon tiles that look weird, the one unit / one tile - rule - come on, as if that is realistic...it complicates a lot of things to the point where I feel bothered playing this game, it's a real bummer. The compulsory Steam - love it or hate it. Also there are too few Civs in vanilla but this can be fixed, as well as the missing wonder movies.
The half baked civic system isn't worth mentioning.
Imho one should wait 1-2 years til the modders fixed the game to a point where it is playable.… Expand
