I haven't read a single bad review for the game, so I don't know wtf Sungod is talking about, most reviews have to nitpick to really find something they don't like.As for the game itself I find it on par, if not better, than any other Civ game I've played (played Call to Power, Civ3,4). They simplified a lot of things from Civ 4 and the AI isn't quite as tactical, so experienced Civ players may long for a harder game, but just because they simplified a good amount of things doesn't mean the game is dumbed down. They've also made it far easier for newer players to pick up, tutorials are back and they are helpful, and nothing is so complicated you can't get the hang of it after a couple games.And yes, the new combat system is probably the highlight of the game, I find myself actually stopping and plotting out my moves like a game of chess as opposed to most other civ games where the strategy was stack and faceroll.TLDR- Civ 5 is probably the best game of the series to start playing with, give it a go I promise you'll be hooked :-)
