Sigh. While I was crushing Louis XIV and the French, Asoka and the Indians beat me to Alpha Centauri. How disappointing.

Bummer!

How many hours does a single game take on Civ 4 for PC?

This one was 19 hours, but I spent a lot of time not actually playing, or working on strategy. The one previous (that I won pretty handily with a tech victory) took 8. I've had one that took 2 or 3, but that was a duel, and I took him out before either of us had reached the middle ages.

Def. a much more in depth game than the console version. I think the game lasts a couple of hours or so. I think the main thing that contribute to this are smaller worlds and less rival civilizations (4). I need to work on my civ skills a little bit and then I am going to hit the online. The faster paced style should make it perfect for an evening online match against 3 other friends.

hmm... If you weren't actually playing or working on a strategy what were you doing?

Just having the laptop sitting open while I made dinner or watched TV or something.

I've been VERY curious about how this game would play on a console. I've been a huge fan of the series since Civ2 came out. I still play IV on my PC. I sure would like to try it before dumping $60 though. I don't play console games much at all.

Have you tried the Civ IV expansions? I'm trying to decide if they're worth it.

Yep...bought both. They can usually be found pretty darn cheap, so I always buy the expansions.

I'm downloading Revolution right now to give it a play, If the demo is good then I'll purchase the game.
