Full of game crippling bugs !!!!! STILL
THE “BUG FIXES” UPDATE DID NOTHING, SEEMS TO EVEN MADE ALL THESE LISTED PROBLEMS WORSE !!!!!!! made more problems. now wuto end turn doesnt work. i give up on this game. most every single bug in this game relates to workers. after a certain point in the game. they just stop making upgrades completely and sit around the map at random points. STUCK until you return them to manual mode. they also travel the most danerous locations around the map over and over. constantly getting caught by barbarians. once returned to manual mode they need orders to do the same jobs over and over each turn until the one job is complete. they also seem to build an excessive ammount of trading posts leaving me people hungry in allot of cases or city growth stagnated. managing workers in a large empire quickly becomes overwelming and normally call it quits before finishing a game in frustration. without these bugs it would be a super fun and great day killer when its raining outside. hard to put down forget to eat kind of game. until the workers stop. well. working. one final complaint is the game has an auto attention that can really be very very annoying. if you are doing something with a unit it will just start switching you around the map on its own to what it thinks you should be doing. instead of allowing the tasks bubble to be clicked and get to each one in your own time. I HATE THIS AND WISH I COULD TURN IN OFF !!
Yikes! It sounds like an excessive war-mongering glitch that effects the workers. Hit up our support team asap so we can take a look: https://support.aspyr.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
A Deal Here?
There is a deal to be had here. I’ve played buggier versions of Civilization games on different platforms, and Aspyr support helped sort out whatever problems i had with this one. However, in terms of the cost, i’d say you’re better off going to find the game on the Steam marketplace. The complete Civ V experience involves the two 30$ expansion packs, Brave New World and Gods & Kings, neither of which are included here. So, essentially, to get the full experience, you would have to pay the initial 30$ for the Campaign edition, then another 60$ for the two major expansions. Steam bundles them occasionally for substantially less.
If you do feel like paying 90$ here, then i’d say go ahead and enjoy yourself. After two years i still find myself enthralled by this game. It’s a deep and meaningful experience that you don’t get in a lot of strategy games, or games in general, nowadays. Make sure your mac can run this game on the highest setting though. This is not a deal breaking condition, but it does look much nicer on the highest resolution.
All in all, there is a deal to be had here, especially if you’re only interested in the basic CIv V experience. But it’s up to you whether paying an extra 60$ for the full version is worth it.
I bought this game, played it a lot, and really enjoyed it. I run an old OS X because I have some expensive, but dated music software that cannot run on a more recent OS. When this game issued an updated, it made it impossible for me to access the game. It prompts me to update my OS, but as noted earlier, that would be an expensive change to make. I paid $30 for this game and it was essentially taken from me by the update. I doubt I will ever see my $30 or get my copy of the game back.
I suspect that the license agreement somehow gave them the right to alter my copy of the game even though it is on my own computer. There was a time when downloading software on your computer meant it was yours to control - sadly many license agreements seem to be shifting away from this. I could bother to read through the legal notice, complain to Apple or the developers of this game, and try to get my money back or somehow have my copy restored, but we all know that will never happen. I probably signed away any rights I had when I bought it and fighting it is not worth the effort for a $30 game. Nonetheless, I feel like I got screwed. I find it frustrating and think it is a dishonest business practice.
In the future, try not to swindle your customers. Even if the update that corrupted my copy was issued with good intentions, in practice it stole $30 from me.
