I love playing the game; its the best Civilization yet. But playing over the Steam network slows the game down to a mind numbing crawl. In most cases it takes 5-10 minutes to get through NPC turns and then by the time your done with all your activities you've blown through 20 minutes per turn.

Do yourself a favor, go somewhere to get the disc, you'll enjoy the game a lot more.

1st id like to point out this game is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Awesome graphics, HOURS upon HOURS of game play, and In-Depth game play I might add. The interface is very sleek compared to Civi 4 or any of the other Civis for that matter. The AL is alittle clunky however the Vanilla enhanced mod, Along with a few others cleans this up quite nicely. If you've been playing Civi 4 for years like I have youll really enjoy what Civi 5 has to offer (With mods). I only say with Mods cause Civi 5's interface does leave out a few information screens that Civi 4 players maybe use to using alot. So cause it needs a few Mods to be the best I give it a 9 :P

Now I have no idea what these review before me are saying about "Theres no download link" or "Had to wait a whole day to contact support." As soon as I bought the game it provided me with a game key and Gave me STEP by STEP instructions where and how to download the game. Which was fairly easy if you READ the instructions. The only inconvenience I can see is if you dont have Steam currently on your computer for this is where you will be told to download the game from. However, if your buying this game your most likely a gamer so you most likely already have it.

Anywayz, GREAT game for the Price. I totally feel like i just stole this game for free to be honest.
