There's a saying at Firaxis - "it's never Civilization if Ghandi doesn't threaten you with a nuke". We got to check out Civilization 5 at GDC last week, and fans of the old school will be pleased to note that it's looking like it captures the spirit of the previous games, while at the same time adding some interesting new features that offer a new take in terms of gameplay.

We were treated to a 15 minute presentation showing off some of the features at a pretty high level; the game is looking really nice even at this pre-alpha stage and I for one definitely can't wait to see how it progresses. Take a look at our Civilization 5 preview for more details.

Nice writeup trog. I have to say that this is the game I'm most looking forward to this year. Absolutely love the civ series.

Can't wait to burn many hours on this. Looks great, nice preview.

The no stacking's going to really shake things up.

The more I think about it the more I like the no stacking thing, I never really found civ battles engaging beyond "will my stack defending this square outlast their stack of attacking units? jesus nooo my tank"

nailed it. civ 4 was epic in every way except for the combat system imo.

jesus nooo my tank


I didn't play Civ4 much (played a lot of Civ Revolution on the Iphone though) but I'm looking forward to getting into this. Combat system over-haul sounds good.

Actually now I'm seeing this as waves of units trying to push against each other, trying to hold the line. Sounds even more awesome.

Spent most of my senior years at high school playing Civ II on Deity. Love the civ series.

Been playing since Civ2 back in high school and I'm still giving Civ4 a good thrashing!
Hexes are long overdue which will hopefully give the game a more natural feel.

Perhaps I should hibernate this winter in preparation for sleepless nights ahead ...

Have they fixed phalanx vs tank yet?
Posted 11:24am 20/3/10
My elite phalanx will pwn your tanks. What you don't know is that in the future the phalanx managed to gather up some C4.
