Thanks but no thanks!
It's got steadily worse and worse since Civ 2 as gameplay has been reduced to a minimum, the 'approved' path has become more and more proscriptive, the disapproved of military combat has gone from difficult to near impossible to profit from, and the Sid Meier in the title has become a symbol of that out of touch liberal tyranny that has left the real world in such an appalling mess! It's no longer a game ... just an extended lecture on the virtues of democracy, peace, and so-called green policies. If I want a diatribe like this I can get one for free at any political meeting. If Meier's so utterly convinced of his case then perhaps he should be financing the distribution of this latest propaganda piece himself. Oh that's right. Capitalism first, democracy second!
