Personally, I actually prefer 5; I think the changes in game mechanics are generally very positive.
Either way, if you feel strongly about previous installments of the series I'd advise trying the demo first and gauging the changes in game mechanics that way.
If you're new to the series you can't really go wrong with Civ 5, it's a solid game overall. Just be aware it's relatively taxing, you need at least a mid range PC to play it properly.
