The Civ IV x-pak demo is nice, but I would want to go back to a little earlier time frame for a start position—which I'm sure the actual game allows, right? It's a little pricey atm as well since I would also have to get the main game. Would it be better as well as cheaper to start earlier in the series, say Civ II or III, or is IV a really big improvement?
