Don't be like me and buy this game as well as Civ 4, because it really doesn't add to much. There seems to be another level of polish, but in all honesty, if you are happy with Civ 3 or 4, I recommend that you don't buy this game. It is more of the same. Especially now, with Civ 5 out. If you have either 3 or 4 and want more Civ, buy 5 and get it's DLC; it's usually on sale and although it may take some getting used to, is IMO a much better Civ than this game is. Cheers!
