Summary: Wow a chick writing a review for CIV 5!!!! So will be clear in a few words. The guys are right to complain about the lack of some cool features of the past versions, like trading maps, techs etc. To me the worst of all is the inability to stack units! It's a nightmare. However, I still love this game and still spend hours on it. Me and hubby seat besides each other with the two macs and have fun together. IT is still very worthy!
Not all that bad...(version tested for Mac, English edition)

Summary: I have read the reviews before buying the game and was surprised to see so many negative reviews. Reviews are obviously inherently subjective. To me, it appears that Civ V received so low ratings because most Civ fans are used to a certain (and increasing) level of complexity and challenge in this shrinking genre of turn-based strategy games. System used Latest MacBook Pro, i7 processor, 4 GB ram, 512 graphics. Snow Leopard operating system.
Summary: I have been a big Civ fan since the early days - so was naturally keen to get this latest incarnation. However, I was very annoyed to find that once I had opened the plastic wrapper, inserted the disc, and opened the readme file - that to get the game to work, I was obliged to open a Steam account first. I didn't want Steam, and wouldn't have bought the game had I known. I have tried the game, but it freezes during busy times - such as bank holidays.
