I've been thinking, based on recent Civ4 history and lukewarm reviews, that it might be wise to hold off on Civ5 until it's been developed further and a major expansion shows up and results in "package pricing." Civ4 remains fun in the meantime, and it's probably reasonable to expect Civ5 will come down further in the next year, yeah?
You've got at least a few months before their next big sale (summer?)... but having a backlog of fun games to play purchased at a great price is a common condition many of us steam users must suffer .steam and others are sucking all the cash out of my wallet this year, bought like 5 games already, probably will buy another 5-6 before the sales end. when am i gonna find time to play them all!?
I thought the UI and polish was great! It was more the mechanics that were a little off for me, and the crashing/performance issues. They're releasing patches (or have already released them) to fix crashing and the transparency issues with diplomacy, though I haven't tried them out yet. It seemed to me like a great game that they released a couple of months before they should have.I'm a big CIV fan, but I don't think I would buy it for $40. I bought it for $50 and am not particularly happy with it. The UI is not half as polished as CIV4. I guess I had come to expect expert, best in class UI's and gaming experiences from the CIV franchise. CIV5 just isn't polished like the others. Simple stuff such as searching saved games by date and a transparent diplomacy system is missing. Regenerate map on first spawn? Gone. You have to return to the main menu to get a new map.
Got Crysis Maximum Edition for $10. Best deal for me so far. I was going to buy it the other day since the EA store on Steam had stuff on sale. Good thing I waited.
