Ha, i love that!
Minimum processor requirement: Dual Core CPU.

No indication of speed whatsoever. Just ‘Dual Core’. Nice one guys! What does the game even need the other core for anyway? As far as i can remember Civ isn’t exactly a CPU intensive game. It’s turn based, the AI has p-l-e-n-t-y of time to calculate its algorithms.
