5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Game, Excellent Deal November 24, 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Civilization 4 is an excellent game, especially with the expansion packs. Everyone who enjoys strategy, empire building, city/nation management, etc. will love this game. It has it's flaws (most of these are opinions, however) such as culture identifying national borders (Berlin has been overwhelmed by the culture of Paris and has joined my Empire MWAHAHAHA!) but these do not detract from the gameplay value and the never-ending replayability. The game is tons of fun to play multiplayer as well.

However, be warned about this Complete Edition. The copy comes with version 3.13 of BTS of which several new updates have been released, however the Complete Edition is not compatible with the auto-updater found in game. There are two ways around this: A) modify your installation directory when installing the game [read the comments if you have issues with this] or B)manually install all updates.

[Update] - For those curious, this version does NOT contain Colonization which is contained in the new American Complete Edition. Civ IV: Colonization is a stand-alone game and not an expansion to Civ IV.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do NOT Buy This Version. It is the DRMed Version. June 22, 2009

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Do not purchase this version. its the DRMed version and you can't copy/backup the game -- you need to have the CD in to play it.

Buy the version with the red banner across the top (which also says "The Complete Edition". It is DRM Free.

Edit: The no DRM version is here: http://www.amazon.com/Sid-Meiers-Civilization-IV-Complete-Pc/dp/B0026EGO3A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1290940687&sr=8-1

The other version is now an extra $20, (though that wasn't the case when I bought it).

Also, from comments, "If you upgrade to the latest patch of Beyond the Sword, the DRM is removed." Thanks to Dave Macrae.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best games of all time March 27, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There are a few games that, no matter what shiny new technology comes along, will always remain on top for decades to come. Civilization IV with its expansions are just one such game.

I got the original Civ IV as a bonus game with a graphics card. Had no idea how good the game actually was. I hungrily snatched up Warlords, which was a great expansion. By the Sword offered less impressive new content, but tweaked and adjusted the rules and features to as close as perfection gets.

It's hard to say what makes Civilization so enthralling, but I think it's the desperate wars and tensions which so closely mimic real world events and scenarios. I recall a couple of weeks playing a real earth map every night, sweating in fear for all humanity what would happen if the cold war between my freedom-loving Greeks and the fascist Indian Empire erupted into open conflict or worse, nuclear annihilation. I recall the sheer indignant anger when launching total war against Roosevelt and his bloodthirsty Americans after being stabbed in the back yet again, our oil supplies sabotaged as an opening assault on our borders and OUR VERY WAY OF LIFE. The ensuing World War ate up a week of my time. The game is incredibly immersing.

I'm guessing good mechanics are at the core of Civ IV's awesomeness. The game runs smoothly and in a balanced fashion, no small task when mimicking the complexity of human progress. Unlike most strategy games, comebacks and unexpected rising stars are not unheard of, as being on top means being on every one's hit list. Being low on the score list doesn't mean certain doom just as being on top is no security.

The details are remarkable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Civ IV Complete July 12, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Well, I think we all know how awesome this game is. If it weren't for the fact that I could not find my second copy of BTS, (cause the first had data errors from years of hard use)I would have not needed to buy this version. However, with all three games (vanilla, warlords, and bts) all on the same disc, it makes it a heck of a lot easier to install on my new machine. Also, considering I was able to find it on Amazon for $18 saved me anywhere from $20-$30. Fast, easy shipping was an added feature for no additional cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars I sleep 4 hours a day again October 30, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I will start by saying that I didn't play any of the previous Civ games, and got this one failing to find any games that are like Master of Magic and are worth mentioning; that is, I have no gripes about how they removed this and changed that from the previous one (I will probably have 'em once I get to Civ 5 :)).
The game is amazingly entertaining, the only disappointing aspect being the lack of tactical combat (overall stack-based combat with defender choice seems "unfair" - in no case you can use your army size as a definitive advantage to route the enemy), but I guess that's the game rules.
I think I didn't have these "it's only 4am, just one more turn and I'm off to sleep" moments since I was 19. Every play is entertaining and I haven't even yet played half of the custom scenarios.
The game is also seems amazingly bug-free compared to several other games I played just before.
Totally awesome experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps my kids occupied for hours! October 31, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My daughter (age 11) had asked for Sid Meiers Civilization 5 after seeing ads for it. After reading the reviews I elected to purchase Civilization IV instead. She (and my other children both older and younger) LOVE the game. They discuss strategy, laugh about historical inconsistencies and have a blast.
It's interesting which children take a militaristic approach and which elect diplomacy. I would highly recommend it as a Christmas gift for computer savvy children over 10.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of the Series
This is the absolute best among the series. I continue to play this regularly. The UK import has no difference between the off the shelf versions in the US.

Very good game, runs perfectly, builds nicely on the past in the series. Excellent replayability. I've probably gotten 100+ hours of fun so far out of this.
