I was thinking on my way home from work just now how I'd sort of like to spend some money I got for my birthday on Civ IV. I've never played any of the Civ games, so I had looked (earlier) for a demo to see if I like it and see how well it will run on my computer. Got home to see that a demo was released today. Downloading now...
I already have the full game, so no demo for me!
how does it run???
It runs smoothly. After I downloaded the update it ran better, so definitely grab that if you want the game. Plus, it looks very nice and plays very nicely.
8 hours until the download's done... Lot of downloaders, I guess.
Boy... I've tried hard to avoid this one for all kinds of reasons, but it looks too good to pass on.
Beautiful graphics, nice looking revisions...
it's a great game but runs pretty badly on a macbook. I want a new imac...
Best waste of time out there
Bought the game when it came out - lots of fun?
Did you grab the update?
Are you not torrenting it? 45 minutes till it's done, started five minutes ago
Hasn't this game been out for a little while now? or is it new ?
It's been out for months on the PC side, maybe a month or so for Macs.
Eleven months for PC, four for Macs.
Don't play it! You'll sit down and then 20 hours later at 6am you'll feel horrible.
Anyway, Civ IV is a lot better than Civ III, but still.
(when I played the full PC version) I was almost able to build nukes in the 14th century though.... those turns just take so long at that point.
Yay, instead of 8 hours only 8 days with the torrent
the 1.61A patch? That's what I have. It brings the game from "unplayable" to "sluggish." If there's a newer patch, point me towards it!!
is it still turnbased?
I really like that I can run it at full rez (2560x1920). The characters are IMMENSE.
I'm still struggling with the interface a bit. I'm so used to micromanaging the cities, that I have preferences on what improvements are made. In this case, it seems like some of Alpha Centauri was brought into the mix regarding worker automation.
Still, getting to see the wake of boats moving, the waves on the shore, the animations all look so sweet.
Glad the demo was only a 100 turns.
I forgot how addictive that game is. I could say "one more turn" until I passed out.
Funny... mine went from 'sluggish' to 'decent' and I have a quarter of the RAM you do.
I've played a couple of games on the PC version. It is as fun as it is addictive... and that means A LOT. It is purposefully uninstalled now, for the sake of passing all my courses. Check out the Addiction Trailer:
It's not that far fetched, and pretty funny too .
Of course. Why would they want to change that aspect of the game?
Has anyone tried this on any Mac with less than the recommended specs? Downloading now to give it a shot, but wondering what I can expect.
I just installed this demo on my Mac Pro. But the graphics is totally corrupted. The intro, menus, and the characters in the game work fine, but the terrain is totally screwed up and mainly black with a few coloured dots here and there. Anyone got an idea what could be up?
