Steam ruins games

While the game itself is awesome the fact you have to sign up to and use the steam program to play the game ruins the experience. Even though steam allows for an offline play setting it still creates issues with game play. The fact that nowhere on the packing does the game state you have to join steam before you can play it on your own PC offline is inexcusable. Due to this all people who purchased this game without the notice of having to sign up to some online site before being able to play should be refunded the cost of the game.

The best thing about this game is the beauty of it but it ends there. The game is slow with very predictable civs. With the 5th edition of this great franchise I was expecting better layouts of civs beginning with the number of leaders to the units inside and I was very disappointed with how few civs came with the original game. I am a diehard civ fan but will not waste my time purchasing expansions that should have come with the original.

This game has one problem; you have to install and upload this Steam thingamajig to play the whole game. The game will just freeze the game and have a pop-up saying 'please install Steam.'

Very disapionted that three days after recieving this game I have not been able to play it. I paid next day freight and once on this "Steam" website it needed another 15hours to down load the rest of the game... that was three days ago. I have contacted the "Support" many a times with no responce. I have a Broadband internet connection and it is still taking this long. I have owned every "Civ" game out there and cann't beleive that now they would put a game out there like this through a website that can not handle the traffic... Something needs to be done and soon...

This game does not meet the standard. It constantly freezes due to the fact that it is stored offsite on steam. You must install and use steam to play the game. You cannot create or modify the game in anyway except to download from steam. Steam will constantly download updates without your knowledge. Do not buy this game.

  • A. You can just play against the PC, that's what I do. However you need to install Steam and activate it via the internet.

  • A. If you like, you can play against the PC only. The only internet aspect that is required (if you bought the hard copy in the store) is that you verify your copy online. After that, you're not required to use internet at all.
