Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Civilization IV is an AMAZING game! So much variety in game play, so much replay value and fun, and no "game rules/bugs" that hurt the game in any way (at least that I have found). So when the Warlords expansion stated it made changes in game play, most notably the addition of the new warlord special person, new gameplay options like vassal states, new buildings, changed leader characteristics, I was a bit worried. However, these changes managed to make an already great game even better, if anything just to add something fresh to the mix and get you playing this amazing game again.

However, if money is tight it may be hard to swallow the $30 price tag. If thats the case, I highly recommend you wait until the next expansion pack "Beyond the sword" is released. It will contain the same gameplay updates as warlords. The only thing missing will be the warlord scenarios, which are good, in no way worth $30 on their own, especially when users create their own free scenarios that are just as fun! The scheduled release for BTS is late July on the PC, but who knows how long it will take to be ported to the mac. If you are willing to wait, you will be rewarded, as you will get a TON of content for $30. Had I know about this before I purchased, I probably would have held off.

However, that being said, I LOVE Civilization IV and the warlords expansion. Best game on the mac by FAR, and is one of those games (unlike massive online games, etc) that let you take as much time as you want for each turn, and more importantly BETWEEN turns. You can actually have a life outside of Civilization, and it will be ready for you when you get home. Great game!

4.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Joy to Play! March 13, 2007

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased Civ IV for my nephew at Christmas and we had so much fun playing together and separate, when I can get him off of it, that I decided to go for the expansion. We still enjoy playing the hot seat together as well as separately conquering the game.

This new installment adds some more features and characters to it. Which equates to more fun. New leaders add another bit of that fun spice to the game. Graphics are awesome. We use an iMac and love the way the whole thing looks. We have watched all of the "wonders" videos and still find that we like to re-watch them every time we play.

For people who enjoy strategy games this is a must as far as expansion packs go. If you don't have Civ IV yet get it and enjoy it.

I gave this game 4 stars for the fact that there is always room to expand.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great game but terrible programming February 17, 2008
Platform for Display:Mac
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Civ IV is a a lot of fun. Similar to old PC games like Master of Magic.
Unfortunately, the Mac version is moderately buggy. Let me count the ways:

1) Audio glitches. Occasionally an old sound will seemingly 'stay in the buffer' as an annoying buzz for several minutes.

2) Video. After playing for a few hours some of the terrain improvements turn completely black. Restarting the game works for this one.

3) Video. After a few hours it gets slow and the video glitches. The menus become partially unreadable. Restarting also works here and there is no noticeable corruption of the autosave files.

4) Complete Crash. Several times I have had my whole machine lock up when playing in full screen mode. Its interesting in that its not a complete freeze, but instead the mouse slows down to 1/100 of its normal speed. However, I am unable to exit the game at this point and am forced to Hold Down the Power Button !!! to hardware restart. This is atrocious and the only program I know of that actually crashes the OS.

I have a 2.4 GHz iMac Intel Duo with 2 GB of RAM and running Tiger.

4.0 out of 5 stars Civ 4 compared to Civ 3 September 14, 2007
Platform for Display:Mac|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have never been good at math, but I am good at following the numbers. Civ 1,2, and 3 were good in one regard, it was easy to follow and understand the relationship with production and income and stuff like this. However I find it hard to follow Civ 4. Maybe I haven't played it often enough to grasp it. Half of the time I bang out wonders for the sake of keeping them from the other players when I can. Most of the time I do not grasp what the wonder is doing exactly. For the most part I am reflecting on what it did in Civ two and three.

It is a good game overall. But the heavy changes to the game make it a little confusing at times. A few of the changes I do like, but over all I feel they changed too much from the others.

The things I do like are:
* When you put a unit on automatic it tends to accomplish what I wanted it to do a little better than older versions.
* I like that mountains block travel altogether so you can use it as an impassable wall when making a map.
* Combat is a little fairer; I remember times in Civ 3 when a barbarian will kill an army of 4 modern tanks with a club.

The things I do not like are:
* The city info screen does not provide as much useful info as it did in Civ 3.
* The change in the graphics are cool but a pain in the @$$ to get use to. It provides the game with a whole different feel.
* The game does quit out from time to time. I'm a Mac Tech on a new Intel 24" iMac and I haven't figured out why. (Note: in a 8 hour session I would expect it to unexpectedly quit at least one time but the auto save prevents me from louse the game.)
* After a wile of running I need to quit the game and reload because it slows down. After I reload the game it runs a lot smoother.
