    $14.99? Yeah, No Thanks

  • Sachin

    Would love to play this on my iPad but $14.99. -_-

      You have to realize and maybe I’m such a fan that I don’t really see it but All Civilazation games if not most of them run at 49.99 becuase they are PC based and yes while those have pretty much more detail into them. I can say that the ipad version is not that far behind. Also the price is better than some games that are priced at 19.99 or 24.99. The replay of this game is really high and trust me whn I say sometimes it gets addicting. But that’s just my point of view might go lower on price for the 4th of July but I don’t know.

        When civ5 was on sale you could get all the DLC and game for 16$, and it is cross platform too. Mac Linux and windows support.

    I’m a big Civ fan and I usually buy the games and DLCs as soon as they’re available but I doubt that this is gonna be worth that price. You could have bought Civ V with all the DLCs on steam for that price last week.

      R4 Just keep in mind this is the only Civilazation game available for play on a iPad or iPhone. Part one was pretty good although I had started to wonder about the graphics and here we are a newer version with more addons and better graphics at a higher price but at least not a freeon game.
