First of all, as a few have said: THE DVD ISN'T THE GAME! All the DVD will do is install Steam, on which you have to set up a user account, then enter the verification code from inside the DVD case. You have to be connected to the internet throughout. There doesn't seem to be a way around this. Oh, and you don't even get a manual inside the DVD case – which is a HUGE let-down after Civ IV's massive, readable manual.

FOR NEW PLAYERS
Civilization has always been engaging, fun, interesting, and addictive in a good way. Strategy bods like me will love it especially. Civ V is a great entry into the franchise, and can be expanded with two separately purchased packs, Gods & Kings and Brave New World.

FOR EXISTING CIV PLAYERS
If you're used to Civ IV and Civ IV Beyond The Sword, Civ V will be a bit underwhelming. There's a big improvement in the quality of gameplay – you can't stack military units, for example, and the Social Policy choices make a nice change from the 'this one or this one' approach to Civics in Civ IV. Units can 'embark' once you've researched optics, and you don't even need to load them into a boat. And most importantly, as they've tried to implement in every Civ game since III, bigger is not better. You're significantly punished for raising a large empire. Oh, and city states are a great idea, filling the map out with pawns to help you accomplish your goals

But, there's not much to it. Players of even the original (vanilla) Civ IV may be disappointed in the lack of things to do. Diplomacy is very simple, but not straightforward. You may miss the detailed + and - ratings for leaders' opinions about you, and the AI is still not exactly rational.

This sucks! Why on earth do I have to be online to play a game? I purchased what I thought was a full DVD version only to have to be online to reach the Steam servers to be able to play. Even when I am online more than half the time I get a "Steam servers are too busy.. error code (53)" message.... this really sucks!

Don't bother with this version, they have done things to it which should not have been done and I got fed up with it after only a couple of days. Get Civ IV if you want the latest and best version which pretty well sticks to the original concept but with graphic improvements and a few fresh ideas.

I though that I am buying DVD with a game, while I just bought DVD with Steam installer and just got a code to download Civ5 from internet.

Even before he watched the kettle boil James Watt knew a thing or two about steam. Alas, after trying in vain to load this version of Sid Meier's iconic game I still know nothing about Steam -- the platform that takes over installation and sets alarm bells ringing in Windows Defender.There is nothing in the Amazon blurb to warn the unwary of this intrusion.

I know it wasn't the seller's fault, but the game was locked due to it had already been activated on steam and wasn't deactivated.

As a long time player of Civilization I'm aware that many people like many things about the game, hence it's long term appeal. For me it was the ability to stack armies and have the big battles, almost the D-Day moment as it were. There are different strategies associated with this including bringing up reserves and mobilisation all of which add a challenge. To remove that option has destroyed this game for me so will have to be content that Civ 4 was probably the last of the series. A real shame!
I must also agree that the Steam process has caused real problems so making its 'likeability' even harder to comprehend!
