Game torrents are a really good way to get viruses from my personal experience. I know a lot of people who have ****ed up their computer from game torrents and emulators.

Just buy Civ 4 if you want a civ game for cheap.

Depends where you download from and how many people have gotten the same file. Just read any comments posted on the torrents. If no one is bitching about it and it has been snatched tons of times, it's safe. I don't think I've ever gotten a virus from downloading a game.

Not sure about Civ 5 since I actually bought it (first PC game I've bought since High Heat Baseball 2002!) but usually when you unzip the files, it will be an .iso file that you need to mount with a program like Daemon Tools. Then there will be a crack folder on the mounted "disc" that you'll need to copy over some files from.

It isn't a guarantee it will have a virus, but from my anecdotal experience the rate of viruses in games is significantly higher then those in movies or music.

Regarding you problem you probably need to use something like DAEMON Tools Lite. it lets you play games without the CD.

Edit for Batz: I've only downloaded one game torrent + a few roms and it was fine for me, I'm talking about in general. Most of my friends have gotten viruses from downloading a bunch of torrents or roms.

Just play it on your own risk. And if you can really afford the game, buy it, help developers in make more great games in the future.

The crack on the setup file may not be compatible with your version of windows. If you have 7 pro try installing and playing in different compatibility modes.

I think this is it. I always go to setup and then it says that it isnt compatible and switches my color scheme to windows 7 basic.

how do you install and play different compatibility modes?

Right click the game icon, go to compatibility and then you'll have a list of compatibility modes. Look at the link you downloaded the torrent to see if it says anything about what modes it plays in.

Edit:

It should look like this: (sorry about breaking the screen)

LoL you can't get a virus if you use a decent torrent site

Download the games son. 60 euro's for a damn game is fking ridiculous. I would buy every fking game if it was 20 euro's a piece. But 60? Pay 60 for a game that i maybe won't like?

No son. It's their fault for piracy not ours.

Don't listen to the people, like Qwyijibobojobbo said, I've downloaded hundreds of games and I've never had a virus. Read the comments. Someone most likely posted a more in depth installation process.
