personally, I like Civ V sooooo much better than IV, so for me this would be a total no-brainer.  That said, apparently, I'm in the minority, as most people I've mentioned that to think I"m completely mental.

I say 'go for it' - it's a fantastic game that does a great job of carrying on the Civ name.

Where can you buy Civ5 for $4?
Regardless of how good a PC game may be it will always have its detractors and no matter how bad a PC game may be it will always have its fans.

Get it! I wholly agree with the above. Also, there are some fun mods for it.

If you're Steam adverse, I'd check just to make sure that the Amazon doesn't require it.  I have a feeling that it does since IIRC CIV V is a Steamworks game.

It does. All copies of Civ V require Steam, AFAIK.

FASCIST!

That's the answer to 28 down of the crossword you are doing, "seven-letter word for a member of a repressive regime." (Shamelessly stolen from Hot Fuzz, one of the greatest movies ever)
