Overhauled Interface
RTS style, intuitive interface allows you to manipulate units and cities with greater control and faster speed.

The best multiplayer Civ experience ever developed means hundreds of hours of gameplay for you and leaders across the world.

What's New:
Better performance on certain Macs (particularly G5's) that exhibited excessive CPU use in the original release. The game should no longer run dual CPU's to 100% capacity.
Some missing sounds will now play correctly. Other sounds may still be inaudible. A future official release of the Rev A patch will address those.
