downgrading from civ5 to civ 4

#1 Posted by LukeSkywaka (20 posts) -

i just got civ5 yesterday and ive never been addictive to a game as much as that one, i played for atleast 8 hours sraight.

problem is im playing on a 2010 MacbookPro and its running pretty sluggish now that im deeper in the game and map has expanded VASTLY.

im thinking of getting civ4 instead since its older and my MBP should be able to handle those specs better.

will getting civ 4 too much of a downgrade?

Civ 4 has more content in it, it's just not as streamlined, if you like 5 you'll like 4.
