re: Differences between Civ 4 and Civ 5(Posted by Haplochrom on 12/21/12 at 9:28 pm to jmarto1)
i bought civ 5 last steam sale and it blows. great graphics, but this whole diplomatic linear style doesnt mesh well. i liked the finer details and smaller controls of 4 better. its worth the hit in graphics to go back to 4.
i find that i dont care about replaying scenarios in 5.
I'll be honest, I'm not very good at the game. I don't know how the computer creates huge armies at the same time as having all the advancements for its cities. I wish I could find a Civ that is somewhere between a PC and console version. I like the one on xbox but it is too dumbed down for me. The PC is too much micro fricking managing for me.
Definitely get Nights. It makes the game play much more like 4 and fixes alot of 5s problems. I hated G&K vanilla but nights makes it infinitely better. You HAVE TO play aggressive though. Pick a victory path and stick to it. If you try to be a jack of all trades you'll never complete a game.
