You should consider that because you don't think the two resemble each other - other people might think so.

In my mind, both games are quite similar in terms of overall design and core gameplay.

They're both grand strategy games with a historical flavor. They're both 4X games sharing a boatload of features - including diplomacy, warfare, research, espionage, trade, and so on.

EU is real-time with pause and is extremely abstract - and Civ 5 is turn-based and much less abstract. I would consider those the most vital differences.

In any case - when I go looking for a multiplayer grand strategy 4X game with a historical flavor - I prefer Civ 5 to EU, after the latest expansion and patch.

Is that really so hard to understand? Strange.
