Ripped-Off by a Steam Product Again - I'm an Idiot

Summary: The installation failed once, then completed. However, the game has never played successfully. Each time I try to start it I get a video error message. Uninstalling the game and re-installing just Civilization Gods and Kings works fine.
Summary: DO NOT BUY! FAILS 100% of the time! I tried it twice: bought (new) - "already used key" - returned - bought again - "already used key". Steam blames encryption third party. But I say, shame on Steam for enlisting an easily pirated encryption key
Summary: It's not just the download version that's having this problem. I got a new box copy, and also came up with the "already registered" error when I tried to activate it. I guess I'd say, don't even bother trying to buy this game anymore.
STEAM CODES DO NOT WORK, even for the physical disc version!

Summary: SO INCREDIBLY DISAPPOINTING. PLEASE AVOID. Even three years after the problems surfaces, Aspyr and Steam do not have a fix for the code issue. I bought a new version of the game in its original packaging for the soul purpose of avoiding the problems with the download.
Summary: Be very careful about any game that is connected to Steam. Bought a couple of games that were connected to Steam and after a few months I got a blocking message telling met that my ID was blocked. So I tried to contact Steam and for THREE months I go the runaround.
