Does anyone here play this on their Mac reguarly? If i was to get it and play online, would i be able to play people who are using the PC version?

Tho not sure, I would say no, you will not be able to play it with PC users. I'm only saying this due to my past experience with online Mac games and there is a large chance im wrong.

At the moment, no. Macsoft said they were doing a patch to enable Mac/PC networking, but it's been a while.

Mac and PC Civilization 4 gamers can play against each other. One of the best games out there too, in my humble little opinion.

I wish i saw this before i picked up AOE3. Isnt Civ a turn based game though? How well does that end up working out with a 4 on 4 or whatever? Do people get irritated with the waiting?

I emailed Macsoft in January no my disappointing purchase once I found out my girlfriend who has a Dell and I who have a MBP could not play. There response to my question (when can I play her) was "I will pass your concern on to the higher ups. At the time there is no Mac/PC networking and there has not been any development. Thank you"
