Version 1.3.6
Review by ipickert

One of the best strategy games of all time - Up until the release of Civilizaton V, Civilization IV was one of the best strategy games on the market. This sequel improves in every way on the sucess of that game, and surpasses it. The visuals are improved, the combat system, city management, diplomacy, you name it, everything just feels more polished easier to use. One of my favorite things about Civilization is also the way that it makes learning about history incredibly fun, and Civilization V is no exception. There is a lot to learn about the different cultures that are represented here, and a lot to learn in the different scenarios that are available in the DLC. In summary, buying this game should be a no brainer, it is a great addition to the series and a great game.

Review by IamNoOne50

WARNING: Not Worth It - Civilization V is a great game, however it receieves a healthy boost in playability when all the expansion packs are a factor. That being said, do NOT purchase this game on the app store. If everything is purchased from the app store it will cost the player upwards of 77$ and the player will not have the option to connect with players online. If you want a good price and internet play then you should purchase the game anywhere else. Personally I recommend steam seeing as the game in its ENTIRETY will only cost 50$ and will allow players to connect with the internet. Furthermore, the app store version of the game is not steam compatible. To sum things up, Apple is charging you an unfair price for a landlocked version of a game well enjoyed with others.

Review by janacb

Constant Crashing - I love this game! Unfortunately the app constantly crashes for no reason and I lose all my progress. It gets worse as more of the map is revealed. The game is almost unplayable at this point which is a shame. If paying $90 for a game you can’t finish sounds appealing to you, then by all means download and enjoy. I find it a little too frustrating and wish I didn’t buy the game and the expansions. Boo.

Review by staygold512

Freezing on Intel HD 3000 equipped Macs - Cons: I would have preferred to rated this higher, but I am unable to play with my son at all. He is using a Mac mini with Intel HD Graphics 3000 and has constent freezing with the game, only option is to Hard Shutdown Mac, force quit does not work. Tried the Terrian Tessellation setting with no resolve. Known issue with developer. Pros: on my iMac with HD 5000 chipset the game works fine and I have only had App freeze once or twice out of many hours of play. Great game, lots of details to dive into. I only wish me and my son could play together

Crashes, Don’t waste your time on the appstore, buy from steam. - I didn’t have a problem at all with civ5 until this update, I would have took people’s advice, and not updated to this version, but there was that app store crash that forced me and millions of other people to reinstall their apps to get them to work again. Fixed minor bugs, my arse! I can’t believe I’m giving civ a bad review. Nice game, don’t waste your time redownloading from the appstore after every mistake made by apple. Buy this on steam, it’s easier, and because they have a sale on this every couple of months, it’ll most likely be cheaper too. Everyone told me to buy steam, and I didn’t listen. What the hell was I thinking?!

Review by RinkRat22 - 360 live

Great Game, but still crashes after everyone has about 5-10 cities. (you need to reboot to fix) - EDIT: I would really like this built for xbox one. The game seems to have an extremely inefficient way of computing, it always crashes during processing other teams turns. I’ve had this game since the year it came out and its been crashing since the beginning, its appalling that they still havent fixed these problems or found alternative solutions to the problem.. Maybe if they used internet processing to help offload some of the heavy lifting this game needs they could do it, but its still a broken game. The good reviews here maybe true, but they probably are reviewing the game before meeting a lot of the problems this game has, or they have the latest and greatest hardware. They game play is unlike any civ game youve played before. Be ready for change. If youre new to Civ it is a great game to learn, my brother learned Civ 5 without a problem with no previous experience in strategy games believe it or not. He plays on a new iMac, so it works fine for him. The game has a lot more depth than any of the previous games, but its also easier to understand. The game isn’t bad, except for crashes. It is different though, so if you can’t deal with change in the gameplay from previous generations, don’t buy it until you can open your mind to new concepts. Bottom line: If you have a very new system with lots of power, this game is maybe worth a try. Maybe see if you can find source online to compare your computer with this game to make sure it works, cause the minimum reqs will still freeze on you. If you don’t have the latest and greatest computer and know it sometimes struggles with other games, don’t even bother with this one. It’ll be a waste of your money, cause youll play it once, and once it fails you won’t really want to pick it up again until you have a computer to actually play it which (could be) years before you will actually be able to play this game all the way through. Another solution is to just set it to autosave every turn. The game plays off a seed every turn so all the results (if you do the same thing) will come to the same thing even if the game crashed. The seed is in the last save you have so you can pick up on the turn you left off at the crash, maybe play a few more turns before it crashes again. It is A LOT OF WORK and probably not going to keep up with it for much longer. I wish they’d atleast make it crash to the desktop so I wouldnt have to force reboot everytime it happens. Can’t be good for my computer. Cheers.
