Complete edition of Civilization 5 is more like "proper" and "definitive" version of it, mostly because you have many features back from previous game, like religion for starters, because without those the game felt incredibly empty. Expansions give a lot more depth for this game, without them it's just nice looking game with solid music, but no substance. While Civilization IV is still best in the series, Complete Edition of 5 is pretty close to its excellence. If you want to pick this game up, then go straight for Complete edition, because vanilla version might disappoint you and turn off of this game, which would be a shame, because 5 is actually pretty good with add-ons.
Since childhood I have played a lot of strategy games, but Civilization is probably the best of them. This is my first game in this series, I played it 8 hours a day, 7 days a week. Just this game is addictive. It offers a lot of faction, chance of victory, development. Each nation has its own attributes, units and wonders. Our goal is to achieve victory against other states and it is up to us whether we use our strength, diplomacy or science to achieve victory. The game also offers multiplayer mode so you will not get bored too quickly
Civilization V starts with your settlers founding your first city. From there on, your civilization will grow and expand by your command. As the game progresses you will meet other civilizations, and you will start trading, and getting involved in international politics. The ultimate goal is to get your civ to defeat all other civs. This can be done in multiple ways. You can win with a Military, Science, Cultural, Diplomatic or Time victory. This is the best game of the franchise. I've spent rougly 180 hours in this game (only 80 hours on the steam version), and I think I have seen all of what Civ V has to offer. If you ever loved any strategy game, I think you should try Civilization V. It is simply the best 4X and best turn-based game out there. The game is very cheap on sales, so if you're hesitating, just get it on sale. If you're buying this you should get the complete bundle with all DLC packs, because the expansions are great.
Having played every Civ game since Civ 1, I've seen the franchise expand into something that is truly the heart of gaming. With Gods & Kings and Brave New World the game has evolved into a full fledged game that you can play as either a peaceful explorer or a warmonger. I enjoy Space RTS themes but I don't think I'll find Stellaris or Gal Civ ever as fleshed out as Civ V has become. This is currently as good as 4x gets.
This game is the best Civilization games I have ever played with, not counting Civ VI, since I haven't played that yet. With so many scenarios, mods, civs, and units, this game will still be fun even after months of playing. The AI isn't the best but still fun to interact, since their personality can be randomized and all. All in all, this game is just great.
