I'm fan of xcom series, but have been too busy playing CIV 4 these few weeks to try that demo. CIV is scary, you lose your track of time completely with it. Luckily game can show you clock and you can set alarms to stop you from playing. Really bad case of "one more turn".
Thanks for the tip about the demo. You're playing Civ IV rather than V? I have to say I *really* liked the move to hexes in Civ V, and I didn't notice any significant steps backwards from Civ IV. Are you playing on an older machine, or do you actually prefer Civ IV?
