actually i found the ideas about custom government types, scrapping of armies-time periods, culture system and introduction of religion pretty interesting i think this civ will be much closer to civ 2 than civ3broken_keyboard said:and I am very disappointed to note there seems to be very little conceptual innovation. Just a 3D engine added - big woop. Sometimes a 2D birds eye view is more practical for this sort of game. Very disappointing...
Yeah.. but as Steve Jobs would say, none of those things make you sh*t yourself.takao said:actually i found the ideas about custom government types, scrapping of armies-time periods, culture system and introduction of religion pretty interesting i think this civ will be much closer to civ 2 than civ3
Absolutely. I am willing to give it a shot first.~Shard~ said:Absolutely. I won't pass judgment on Civ IV until I know more about it, or play it, but I think it will be hard-pressed to top Civ II.
Yes, hopefully. After I played Civ III a few times, I actually started playing Civ II again. I wasn't a fan of Call to Power either.dmw007 said:Absolutely. I am willing to give it a shot first.
I was rather disappointed when I got Civ III, looks like Civ IV will improve on it though (hopefully ).
Correct, Firaxis used the same engine that was used in Pirates! (not Pirates of the Carribean) to make Civ IV.Zaid said:Just read something in another newsgroup about the fact the the 3D engine used my Civ IV has not been ported to the Mac. Apparently this is also the reason why Pirates of the Carribean has not been ported. Anyone know anything about this?
It was a very god game - I rank it second only behind Civ II as far as these games go, simply due to its "purity" as an excekllent game. Civ II is definitely in the top 5 of my all-time favorite games list though.Xenious said:AC is still my all time favorite!
Rise of Nations > Civ II > Civ IIIcubist said:I suggest you consider Rise of Nations as an alternative. It has many Civ concepts in it, and a better economic/diplomatic model than previous RTSs.
Ah Starcraft, don't get me started... One of my all-time favorite games along with Civ II actually. I cannot wait until SC2 comes out, but I fear it may be at least another year or two...dongmin said:Rise of Nations > Civ II > Civ III
in my opinion, but I'm rather a fan of real-time strategy games a la Starcraft/Warcraft. Screen shots of Civ IV looks kinda hokey. Are there any good real-time strategy-games on the PC you PC gamers can recommend? I just got a PC for work.
