try multiplayer with her...It's unlikely, yes, but if you haven't tried, your dedication isn't good enough ;P

I could try..

It basically has everything CIV3 has, except for armies. Instead of armies every unit can now gain promotions.. That's good enough, believe me ;)

Great leaders have been revamped, and kick serious ass. YOu can now influence when / what type you get, so that's lovely as well.. :)

Micromanagement is absolutely diminished.. which is good for me.. :)

Oh, and it takes a lot more processing power / gfx card stuff to run it properly, so beware.. :)

There are quite a few good reviews mentioned on www.civfanatics.com . You might want to check those out :)

fucking hell, on prince level they always rape me in the last 50-100 turns (in warlords)
Damnit, whether I am score leader, or just gaining momentum, it happened this way in two conscutive games!
I can't afford to maintain a HUGE standing, modern army, when I am rushing through techs because I am recovering from some financial trouble I ran into from my sprawl-start :-(

Bump-ahoy!

I still have Civ 4 lying in a box somewhere with the shrink wrap still on it.

Get some skills, Rick, and learn how to open a box, Genome.

I'll have to correct my post - apparently I have opened it, I just never installed it.

Also, boxes aren't a problem for us Swedes - Land of IKEA, remember?

I played this game until I couldn't stand to look at it anymore.  Anyone know when Civ5 is coming out?  :P

Civ 4 was best Civ.
5 was worse than 3 and 6 didn't recover enough ground and went full DLC-tard.
