If you're buying this game as a hard copy for the sole purpose of installing it without downloading it, DO NOT BOTHER!
For those who do not know, the default for all new Steam published games is for installation to occur via download. This is regardless of whether you have a disc or not. However, if you do happen to have a disc, there is no simple method of installing directly from said disc.
Now the reason I gave this 1 star is as follows: No matter which method of installing from the disc I tried, only 18% would install before it reverted to a 36 hour download. This is highly frustrating.
I do not have the time or bandwidth to install this game, let alone play it. I've been a huge supporter of the Civilization series since it's origin, but unfortunately current developers are making it unplayable.
Please note: I am not slating the game in any form. I have had no problems with any Civ game before this (all, up to and including Civ5 G&K), but this installation process has removed any hope of me playing the BNW add-on any time soon.
