Hey board. I'm looking for a good turn based strategy game recommendation. Was going to get Civ 5 but saw the poor reviews. Should I get that or look at something else?

CIV 5 is excellent.

Definitely Civ 5, great game.

Also there's Crusader Kings 2 which is amazing, but it has a high learning curve. It becomes very rewarding if you take the time to learn it.

Same goes for Europa Universalis III. So good, yet it turns people off with its complexity.

Gamefly.com currently has Civ 5 on sale for 7.99 and it activates on steam. (it requires steamworks)

I think there is a demo you can try as well.

Id get the game of year edition cause the 8 million add ons get expensive at 3$ each especially with the Gods update to the game as well so...

I'm only fond of some of the oldy moldy turn-based games, but one of my all-time favorites was the original Fallout.

It's still a blast to play today. I highly recommend it if you haven't already tried it. It's certainly nothing like Civ 5 though, lol.

Age of Wonders 2 is great as well; I believe it's available on Steam now along with it's expansion.

How can anyone even talk about turn-based strategy without mentioning Master of Magic. It's the gold standard and it's still good. Get it from gog.com cheap, and the boards there are full of recommendations about tweaks with the graphics, help with game play, etc.
