If you like the sound track, just buy it off Amazon.

Civ players are supposed to be smarter than normal FPS and RTS players. Hey, at least this isn’t a $200 collector’s edition for a bad FPS game.

I might buy it for my collection of Civ games, it will stand as a monument to the time I could have spent studying, learning a language or raising children.

Instead I enjoyed my life. :)

I would pay the $100 if it didn't require the SteamWorks crap. As it stands, Civ IV is the last version I will purchase unless this changes!

SteamWorks is a great thing for the PC I was skeptical at first but now I use for most of my games. Anyways I don't think VALVe is a "crap" developer. Plus the sales there are amazing. Try it before you say it's bad.

I like Civ4, and Civ5 looks to be even better. Can't wait to stretch my HD 5670's DX11 capabilities with it! I'll be looking to buy Civ5 soon after it comes out, but I wouldn't pay extra for this special edition package.

Figurines are expensive, and they add alot of extra weight. I believe the cost is justified, and this is the version I will get. (and I will airbrush the figurines too because that is fun).

Infact, that would probably be something that would spur sales. Have a painting contest for the figurines, and the winners get something spiffy.

Ive played Civ since the beginning. I remember staying up all night playing Civ one all the time. Civ is dead. Its been basically the same since Civ 3 with nothing but a few graphics upgrades. Civ would be a power house if they would have taken civ 5 and attached it to a site like Facebook, built much large worlds and let say hundreds if not thousands of people play the game basics at one time (much like the facebook game kingdoms of Camelot if you have tried it).

It doesn't, but even if it did what irrational argument against it do you have? I've never heard one argument against steam that was actually true.

So you're suggesting that they take Civ, one of the best games of all time, and make it a facebook game? What the hell.

Oh, and this is definitely a game I'm waiting for. I won't be getting the special edition, but I've already got the standard one preordered through Steam.

Not the best way to sell a game, first you overcharge then you put a video that already has DRM problems, I hate to see what they have done to the game.
