Hi, My Name is Sid

OK, ok. I broke down and bought this over the weekend. On the face of it, it does not seem too bad. However, I have a couple of observations.

1) "Hi, my name is Sid". So Sid gets his face in the game and talks through the tutorial. Looks like he has put on a bit of weight so CivIII must have sold well. I understand that there is an Easter Egg in the game and at some point the animated Sid strips down to his underwear and dances the can-can.

2) You have to love the Firaxian arrogance that emerges sometimes. Look at the manual and turn to the credits. Composers - first up is Jeffrey L. Briggs, arch Firaxian, then some minor Firaxians and, finally, almost as an afterthought and bringing up the rear, a supporting cast of luminaries such as Allegri, Bach........ And they don't even get Christian names. I can always get a smile out of these guys.

Not true - Civ IV release is the event of the decade. Sid, Sid, Sid.

Sory RC, I'm too busy playing Sid Meier's World of Warcraft. I'll have check out SMC4 later this week.
