No religion, very good idea from Civ IV scrapped , this definetly for minus.
Hmm... If they take less attention on graphic, sounds and music (I can buy Civ 5 even, if it be created in preffered by me 2D graphic) and more to gameplay, historical correctness (so no Pikemen upgrated to Musketmen anymore, lol) and balance, unlike today developers I see success here.

I'm excited about it and I don't think it will fail at all. As all I'm about to speculate on is based off 2 screenshots, they seem to have struck a balance between new gameplay elements and keeping what made civ, civ. So in this respect it won't just be civ 4 but remade, yet it also won't be a strange and foreign game for people who know the series.
I think weaver makes a good point too

The few doesn't make money for the company it needs to sell alot and be successful.
Though the removal of religion is a bit of a downer as it's played a huge part in history if not shaped most if it
Exactly. Jihad, Crusades, ethics, development of science, national identify of ancient nations (Copts, Assyrians, to name a few)... Deleting of religions is fail, very big fail. I always thinking that in Civ 5 they add denominations (Orthodox, Shia, etc.) and more importance for religions (i always miss Monks in Civ IV, not only regular Clergy) .

Maybe they replaced it with some other mechanic? I don't know.
I think sects may be one detail too far it wouldb great though ur own civilisation splitting up if u can't keep the religious element happy. U should be able to pander/neglect the religious elite too.
Omg sects should be great element xD. But only ancient and mediŠval, cause now "political corretness" names was used (NRM lol, but whole people know what sects I mean) .
Arians, Iconoclasts, Manicheans, Monophysites, Gnostics, Bogomilists, Rosicrusians, to name a few heretics and sects in Europe.

NO! Nonnononooono! OF COURSE they make enough money to be successful: otherwise, how come we are on the 5th game? DUMBING DOWN CIV WILL NOT BRING ANY GOOD TO THE FRANCHISE, since us hardcore fans won't like it (I hated the Civ Rev demo) and most people who don't already play civ aren't interested in turn-based, management games at all, so dumbing things down won't bring more people at all.

Civilization V FTW!
I think we should keep in mind that certain aspects of the game may not be reintroduced until an expansion pack. So even if there is not religion in vanilla civ5, I'll cross my fingers for it in an expansion pack.
