After Civ V was out for a while, it seemed that everyone was complaining about how the AI was god-awful and that in most ways, it’s an inferior game to Civ IV: Beyond the Sword.
Has the game improved much since then? I know that Beyond the Sword was a glorious addition to Civ IV that included a lot of re-balancing and tweaking to a lot of the core content. I’ve heard many people declare that all of the post-release updates culminating in BtS was what pushed Civ IV into becoming a legitimately great game.
Has Civ V received a similar treatment? If not, is there something on the horizon that has the potential to be its version of BtS?
I’d love to get into Civ V, but I’m honestly still happy with Civ IV whenever I need the epic strategy fix, so I’m in no rush. I’d rather wait when Civ V has matured to its full potential first.
