The single greatest civilization title in the entire franchise, you would do yourself a disservice by not buying this and instead buying Civ 5 or Civ: Beyond Earth. Civilization IV, beyond the sword improved upon the already solid foundation of Civilization IV. Beyond the sword with its diverse number of nations, diverse technologies, and many new ways to win including such things as the early (ish) diplomatic victory of the Apolostic Palace wonder, where instead of just general popularity religious popularity and religious zeal was a key factor in your victory. On top of all this Civilization beyond the sword has an excellent mod called "Realism Invictus" being devolped to this day still for it that i have personally played and fell in love with.
in short summary, Civilization IV had great balanced gameplay, and while some civilizations had been and are better than others the random map scenarios help to balance things out and really i've never felt defeated just because of the civilization i was given, you can make any civilization work and the technology tree and the culture and the politics of the world you inhabit all flow together elegantly and never conflict with anything you wish to achieve with your civlization. Civilization Beyond the Sword fleshed out that elegant weaving of fabrics and made it a vibrant cloth, giving more technologies and more diverse civilizations adding more to the already great mixture. It gave you more of the civilization you wanted and deserved. Then the player-made contributions add the icing on top of the cake adding a new layer of depth and experience that continues to grow to do this day.
IF YOU ENJOY HISTORY EVEN SLIGHTLY, CIVILIZATION IV BEYOND THE SWORD IS THE GREATEST SELF-SERVICE YOU CAN DO FOR YOURSELF. IT IS A RTS AND HISTORICAL MASTERPIECE.
