There is nothing bad to be said about this entry of the series. The music is great, graphics are nice, and gameplay is as addicting and deep as it should be. This series is very well known to be time consuming, and it couldn't be more true with this one. While colonization is more of a stand-alone game that is good, but many love to hate, IV with expansions is excellent, well thought-out game with no weak points at all. If you wanted to start playing this series, this is a really good starting point, especially for discounted price.
Civ IV was the first in the series that I played. I was 14 and couldn't exactly get a handle nor could I obtain the patience for the level of depth and calculation here. I've recently gone back after adoring Civ V and it's still great. It's just as deep as Civ V, though not as streamlined. It definitely looks worse, but it is more than half a decade older. Th+is game really provides a never-ending amount of detail and enjoyment. I still love Civ V more, but this one deserves all the praise it got upon release.
Civ 4, man I loved this game. I came from Civ2 onward, playing each release and expansion. Each game would come with multiple late night games against a friend. I would always lose, of course, but I'd make him earn it. But anyway, this is the pinnacle of the Civ games for me. I squeed a little bit the first time I saw inflation as a thing you needed to worry about. I think, anyway, I don't know, it was always just a number that kept going up. I absolutely loved religions, founding as many as I could and spreading them like a virus. Civ4 also improved on some of the ideas from Civ3, the main one I liked was the idea of borders. Anyone who has played Civ2 knows the frustration of trying to wipe a civ off the map, only to discover they've plopped a city smack dab in the middle of your empire. Civ3 gave you borders, but anybody could freely pass through them. Civ4 got it right. Also, culture as another form of warfare was always my favorite. Great Artists culture bombing, forcing a culture flip on an enemy city, or maybe just a centuries long border dispute over a key resource. Basically, I loved this game, still do.
Have you heard of all the fuss that people make about Civilization 4 but have no idea what it is or not sure how it's different from other "Build your empire" games? Well look no further cause Sid Meier's Civilization 4 brings an in depth realistic experience to players that will make you understand the meaning of what a real Civilization is! Civilization 4 is so realistic in both the mechanics of the game and graphics that it will seem like you're actually living in it. But that's only what the base game provides! The complete pack includes 3 DLC's to enhance the gaming experience to anyone who just wants "One-more-turn" in this game. Love the franchise and wish to show your support? Choose Civilization 4 complete and feel the difference!
Civilization IV is part of the Sid Mier's Civilization series and was created in 2005 and was a big hit during its days. This pack includes all of the DLC's that you can possibly get and if you compare this to Civilization V, I would say that the gameplay isn't that big of a difference when you look towards how engrossed you can get into the game. Even though there are slight differences in Civ 4, There is a mystical power behind the game that makes you want to continue playing without knowing whats attracting you.
