Support won't get back to you and you have to download software to download this software. Complete ripoff.

The Mac versions of Civilization have never really been very Mac-like in their interface. Stability has been a problem in the past, but Civ V has been pretty stable. Civ V introduces new wrinkles, some of them are a bit strange, but I respect their intent to add more than just 'discovery', 'conflict' and 'resource planning' to the game. The problem is STEAM, which is a total piece of fertilizer! I will not buy any game that requires Steam, and I'm sick-and-tired of what feels like daily/weekly updates to something I didn't want in the first place.

With Civ 5, they've jumped the shark. I played every iteration of Civilization, and each one was exponentially better than the next. That was until Civ 5. They traded prettier colors for playability. If you're looking for the best game of this genre, go back to Civilization IV.

Why did this show up as updated? This release came out 10/15/13, and the latest OS X rev is actually 1.0.3.144.

If someone could help me... the game was working fine last year... Since mid feb (or was it March?) I am unable to play, whenever I start a game, I get the spinning wheel. I uninstalled everything, including steam, reinstalled, and I get a spinning wheel, on both saved games and new games. So at this point the game is 100% unusable for me. HELP!

Boring, to simple. If You need a true startegy game, please go back to CIV 4. This is to simple, to stupid. It's more like the CIv Revolution.

Placed Steam in applications folder. Opened it and immediately it started an "upgrade". When finished I had only a "Steam" menu in the Apple bar and nothing useable was contained therein. Quit Stem and re-opened. This time I got the same Steam menu in the Apple bar and a graphic message stating: "Failed to load steamui.dylib." Repeated procedure with same results. Frustration does not bode well for an 80 year old recovering from both a heart attack and 43 radiation treatments for prostate cancer. Can someone please clue me in or tell me the darn game isn't worth the hassle? My rating is because I don't have the software and I can't submit this thing without ratings.

How in the hell do I download this game without paying for it again? Any site that offers the Civ V download makes me pay for it FIRST. I already paid for it, and I have the code. What do I do?

I would review the game if MacUpdate provided a way to download it so I could try it out. The .5 rating really applies to MacUpdate, but it should really be a ZERO rating for MU.

I'm just bought it today via the MU bundle. Very annoying: no explication about the 'dowload' or the activation via Steam... I just received a serial number but no way to use it.

Civ 5 is a terrible disappointment. The voice over is awful, especially after Leonard Nimoy in Civ 4. The sound effects are awful. It is bloatware thru and thru, with no real improvements in diplomacy, which cd have been done much better. I'm back on Civ 4, waiting for Civ 6 in the forlorn hope they come to their senses!

One of my favorite games. Really addictive indeed. It's a simplified approach to the old versions, this for some are bad but for me it's even better because I also play Civ IV sometimes, both versions are great. The only drawbacks i see are: The Steam client it's a little awful on Mac (consuming resources), and it's very hungry with my videocard (9400M) even using only 2D map this game eats a lots of CPU and RAM (under Bootcamp and XP is even worse. WTF?). The gameplay is also a little boring by the fact of the notification pool. The DLC's are expensive in my opinion.

There really should be two different reviews and ratings for this. Civilization V is a great game and plays very well in single player. Of course it's always more enjoyable to play against a human opponent. (I've read that multilayer is simultaneous moves with each unit action having immediate effect, so it's almost like real time, a very different game.) But now that I am ready to try multilayer I find that the game requires an update. Update failed twice due to connection timeout. Steam now tries to download the whole game again, 4494 MB which, of course, fails every time due to connection timeout. When I bought the game I had to try to download it many times before finally succeeding. There does not seem to be any resume capability within STEAM so if your connection is not perfect for a long enough time period to get this downloaded it will start again at the beginning every time. I also find that STEAM is very slow to load and login. Now new behaviour from STEAM, it endlessly downloads an update and restarts only to download the same update again, etc. The update does not mention any fix for the first problem. Top stars for the game, zero stars for STEAM. Is there any way to get this game without STEAM?
