When people talk about Civ 5 being less than its predecessors, I think of poor AI, less cultural options, no religion/espionage, a greater focus on war, less diplomatic options and so on. City states were one of those things that sound great on paper but just don't work well IMO. It's not so much about having every individual feature of the previous games, it's more that what is there hasn't been executed that well.

I haven't played the expansion and don't really plan on getting it since the reviews seem to paint them as afterthoughts that don't really fix the underlying problems. I always found the AI in Civ 5 to be a bit of a joke, even on the harder difficulties you're just essentially fighting their bonuses as opposed to AI that is more difficult.

It's certainly not a bad game though, it was entertaining enough for awhile and I got my moneys worth. I just found it a tad shallow and not very challenging compared to Civ 4 (unit stacks not withstanding).
