    If you like the sound track, just buy it off Amazon.

    Civ players are supposed to be smarter than normal FPS and RTS players. Hey, at least this isn’t a $200 collector’s edition for a bad FPS game.

    The question should have been "Are you a Civ fan, and an idiot?".


    That's way too much extra cost, for way too little.

    I might buy it for my collection of Civ games, it will stand as a monument to the time I could have spent studying, learning a language or raising children.

    Instead I enjoyed my life. :)

    I'd buy Monopoly special edition over this. I'm sure someone will rip the soundtracks on the web... (¬_¬)
