Anyone bought this yet?
Got my paws on it today...though my bank account will not like me for it mind...but aye, I'm having quite a bit of fun with it so far, some nice new touches indeed ^.^
Though has anyone tried the online play on it yet?
I haven't gotten to try it yet, what's changed? What's better/worse?
From what I've gathered so far, the ability to view your cities and the building has been taken out, but instead you can zoom right in, and see them from the actual map.
You can also zoom right out, into birds eye view.
A new picture seems to be religion. Certain techs grant you certain religions, and if you are the first to discover one of those techs, you are the founder of what ever religion is tied to it.
Your nation can also be influenced by other religions, and a city can also have multiple religions.
The amount of governments has also increased I think, and the battles between units have become animated, though I think you can turn that off if you wish.
A nice little feature for units too is the promotion feature, where if a unit or units gain lots of victories, you can increase certain stats, I.E Str, defence, withdrawal etc etc.
Another thing I like is the workers also have some more options. For example you can build cottages near the cities, which as the cities grow, they turn into Hamlets, then Villages then fianlly Towns, which I think increases the citys productivity.
That all I can think of for now, but if you liked Civ 3, I would recommend Civ 4.
