Civ 4. It is still deep, but is more accessible to new gamers. Plus, it is 75% off, while 3 is 25% off.

Get 3. The game is still reasonably accessible and has a lot more to offer in the long run. Civ4 is just candy floss.

I have played both a lot, and I recommend Civ 4. It is more complex, but I reckon the tutorial and game hints in the game make it easy to learn, and that complexity makes the game more realistic, and more satisfying if you prefer that sort of thing. ;)

Civ 4 also looks much more beautiful, at least to me. :D

You can download demos of each, or at least look at some screenshots and written reviews, and/or youtube video reviews and youtube videos of gameplay. ;) I mean, that way you could get a better idea of what you'd like to buy. :D

Get Civ 4. Civ 3 does not come with a tutorial.

Civ 4 is the better game, only get 3 if you don't have a 3d card.

If your machine can run 4, get it, if not get 3.

Get either but get 4 if you wanna play Online cause theres only 1 port to forward as opposed to the 101 ports c3c requires :)
