    Everyone knows the best form of DRM is a tech tree poster and a massive manual.

    The only problem i have with Civ is that i end up always playing one strategy. All peace until muskets appear, war for a hundred years, give up - sign peace treaty.. wait for marines to appear and then war again to the end. Perhaps this time i'll learn out to eke out the best from my cities.

    I tend to go:

    - Determinded to play peacefully and win via peaceful means
    - Expand as much as I can
    - Build up my army in case of attack
    - Realise I'm really powerful and I might as well start a war
    - Realise I'm not as powerful as I thought I was and regret starting war
    - Make peace
    - Win space race

    Yeah. Same here, although I often make a cultural victory rather than a space race. Still not got the hang of wars in Civ IV after all these years. I usually win them, one at a time, but fall so far behind the peaceful nations that I might as well quit if the peace negotiations fail.

    I always tend to be as peaceful as I can in Civ but it generally goes horribly wrong at some point. I have to say to my favourite bit of a Civ game is actually exploring the map and building the first few cities.

    I'm rather intrigued by the idea of a streamlined Civ.

    My tactic is expand early and fast, building out lying cities and fortifying them for control. Then building lots of cities to bulk up the production and population. Make cities as clean as possible. Be in second place... wait till 95th turn then launch about 65 nukes in to the country in first place in score, knocking them down to 6th place. Then just hold off the attacks of everyone else who retaliates.

    Super excited for this, got into 4 pretty late so some of the stuff in there felt a little old when I got to it, will be nice to experience the game as it's released and supported.

    That is pointless. It's always been far more efficient to take over already existing enemy cities and use their resources. Your utopian peace-lovers always get their asses kicked, because a few modern cities are useless against the hordes of unwashed medieval warriors.

    Yes! Yes! YES!

    Can't wait!

    @UL - I'm similar, I love being the hermit, building up my civ and acquiring those around me by overtaking with culture.

    What's so important about it being a serious game anyway? And what do we mean by serious?

    It's seriously good, which is all I care about.

    The iPhone doesn't support Quicktime? Maybe a direct link works.
