hey everyone i was thinking about picking up civilization 5 i have never played them but i love rts but im looking for something new. starcraft 2 is too much where you cant even enjoy the game cause you get rushed in 2 minutes by some mlg guy. i love age of empires 2 but i feel like nothing has matched up to that. i heard that this is a really good civilization and i heard 4 was really good. thanks for any help
I love Civ 5. I tried, but couldn't get into Civ 4. The combat feels better with only 1 unit per tile (Civ 4 armies are dozens of units stacked on a single tile) and hex based movement. Civilizations feel more distinct in Civ 5 as well.
The franchise in on sale at steam today for a huge discount, so you could try both games very cheaply.
