Game changer

ER, Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: I have been playing CIV since version 1. CIV 5 is the best. One thing about The Brave New World – it significantly changes the game. The game is more difficult, more complicated, and a bit slower. But in the end, it’s still CIV 5 – a great game.

Waste of Money from a MAC Perspective

Christopher Ross, Amazon
19 April 2014
  • Summary: Should have read the reviews first. If you have a MAC, it is okay to download! You just need to make sure you have a "Steam" account set up to run your game. It's a pain but that's how my sim city download is for Origin.

More of the same but not as much fun.

Mark P., Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: I turned off the barbarians because they were more numerous than before. But as soon as your happiness level falls below -10 there they are. Many more than in previous versions when you had to reach -20. I hate that because it takes the fun out of the game for me. I play without city states and no science, political or cultural victories. The good thing is those things haven't changed. You can still turn all that stuff off.

It's OK.

Matt Murdoc, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: I guess it's a good addition to the Civ line. I've played them all, dating back to CIV 1, which was 14MB and came on 4 separate flopping disks and my dad yelled at me because his computer's entire hard drive had 25MB of space. The AI is just as stupid as it has always been. Trading is a joke, as is their combat smarts. However, the hex tiles are a welcome improvement, as is the ranged combat. All in all a good, fun game.

A simple game for fun

George Lansky, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: First what I like.....The graphics are fantastic. Now what I don't really like... The game play is bland. There is nor "strategy" involved in the game. It is still enjoyable to play, you do not have build massive armies and conquer your neighbors, you can explore and build your empire. There are many factors that you cannot control, but you can adjust for (e.g., type of construction and research). It is a great game to just play and build an empire.

Ok, but not as good as Civ 3

iasoccermom, Bestbuy

  • Summary: It's a decent game, but has a larger learning curve than what I remember of Civ. 3. It seems to move slower and is harder to navigate.
  • Pros: graphics

Steam punk

C. D. Zuff, Amazon
21 November 2013
  • Summary: The game is alright. I rather like Civ IV better. Every iteration seems to increase a lot of unnecessary graphics. This one is over the top. Rule changes are interesting. It doesn't actually feel like Civilization any more. That said, the horrible aspect of it is that Aspyr evidently thinks they are going to get a lot more customers are willing to pay around $100 for the "entire" game. Fat chance. And one star off for having to run this through the wretched steam.

I preferred CIV 4

Kyle, Amazon
26 October 2013
  • Summary: While the game is still good I preferred CIV 4. I also had game crashing issues every time I played online with friends when I never had issues with other games.
