Is Civ V easy to get into?

Easy enough to get into and there are a ton of guides on steam to read. Look up gameplay basics. They will give you some good starting ideas. Also madjinn on youtube has some really good advanced strategies https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCV36HP_m14ozVU0Q6kndAQA.

Very easy, despite how complex it might seem on the surface.

Civ V was my first. Very easy. People said it was dumbed down.

The biggest difference between Civ V and IV is the combat, which I much prefer in V. In IV you could stack as many units on one tile as you wanted and just steam roll with a "stack of doom", in V you are limited to one military unit and one civilian unit (Worker/Settler/Great Person) per tile.

Wars are much more interesting in V, having to consider troop placement bringing the correct units into position to maximize effectiveness, also cities without a military unit can defend themselves, unlike previously where you could just waltz in and take it. They do however seem to go on for longer because of this.

Other things such as strategic resources are limited, no more transports to move units across water, all land units can embark/enter ocean tiles after certain techs are researched, however they are defenseless and may need protection from ships, there are ranged units now, city states that will give you resources if you get them to like you and a bonus based on the type of city state it is, religion (if you have Gods and Kings) provides bonuses now instead of just being a money maker, caravan and cargo ship units for trade routes in Brave New World. Just scratching the surface here in differences.

Its the easiest one to get in to. It looks more streamlined and its pretty easy to access all the infos you need. It also has the One Unit Per Tile mechanic and your advisers would give you a lot of suggestions on something.

I bought it in the steam sale but cant play it properly because of the resolution. My PC is hooked up to a TV and when I change the resolution in the .ini file or whatever, it does nothing. :(

Did that with my old laptop and yeah you need a monitor since it does not display properly through HDMI.
