My Civilization V Experience
After much waiting I finally got Civ V so here's my review.
Graphics are not my primary concern but the visuals are pretty good, at least compared to previous civ games.
The audio is as great as ever, I especially like how the civilizations speak their native language. The music is excellent.
The biggest change from Civ IV is the combat system. In previous civilization games units could stack together on a single tile. Players could create "stacks of doom", or, massive unbeatable stacks of units. They proceeded to use these stacks to raze every city in their path.
In Civilization 5, military units can not stack on the same tile. This new feature, combined with the fact that ranged units can actually attack from multiple tiles away creates a much more strategic and satisfying game.
Players can tactically use features of the terrain such as choke points to hold off much larger military forces.
Overall I am very satisfied with this game and will post more Civ V strategy in the future
