The CIV series is certainly not for everyone, I myself have played CIV 3 and 4, I liked CIV 4 but it's very demanding in terms of multi-tasking, and I'm not referring to computer hardware here, I'm referring to us the players, it's turn-based so we need to think about everything in our growing empire each and every single turn, or else just one little thing you forgot about will inevitably have repercussions for dozens of turns to follow, and they're usually negative ones, and you end up re-starting the campaign again, that's how it went for me anyway.

To be honest I don't think I'll bother with CIV 5, it really is a huge time sink.

I played the very first one in either in 1992 or 1993..while in college. I missed a few days lectures because I found it so addictive

I will be looking forward this installment of the series having missed out for a few years and prior versions

I loved Civ 4, and it looks like this one is going to be even better. I can't wait to see it in action!

It's has heavy military elements, but it's not RTS. Turn-based battles, lots of city-building, diplomacy, trade, tech, etc.
