I haven't played since Civ II, perhaps I should give this one a look. It's not that I thought the previous were crummy, just never got around to them.

Wanted: Alpha Centauri 2

This.

I loved Alpha Centauri so much. The addition of a great science-fiction storyline that informed the strategy was just awesome. I played that game for years, even when I was supposed to be writing a play, the subject of my first article at the Escapist -> http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/issues/issue_13/86-Alpha-Centauri

Hey Brian Reynolds, stop messing around with that damn frontier and make Alpha Centauri 2!

I'll admit, thi

Oh My GAWD what a LAME review

Honestly, If I took your words and put it on top of a Vanilla Civ 1 video, It would still be absolutely true..

What IS it about the game that makes it better than any civ before it? Why should I wanna play this any more than civ 4, 3, or even 2.. from your review I'm getting exactly the same game.

YAWN

You said 'gawd'. I can't take you seriously. :P

But seriously, the preview goes over city states, the new civic system, etc. It's just all done in-character. There are several straight-up previews all across the internet, look 'em up. :)

Personally, I thought this was a good preview. I'm kind of embarrassed to say that this sort of thing is running through my mind every time I play Civ.

I'll admit, that kind of thing did go through my head,... When I played CIV 1!

The weirdest part is, I have the Press release, but wanted to see what other people were going to say about it before I wrote my own review, Besides the Hex Grid system, I can't notice any worthwhile difference between 4 and 5.
