These screenshots look great- I really liked the intro in CTP1 (but the one in Civ2 sucked- it held almost no relevence to anything).
Looking at the fact that there are four ages shown (ancient, medieval, modern and futuristic) are these all the ages in the game? (In CTP1 I couldn't see the point in the 2 seperate 'genetic' and 'diamond' ages as I couldn't see much of a difference between the two.)
I hope the wonder movies are good in CTP2 (like in CTP1)- BUT NOT THE SAME ONES! I noticed from some screenshots that some of the wonders are the same in CTP2 but I hope they make some nice new movies for us).
