I am looking to buy Sid Meier's Civilization 5 but I don't have a reliable internet connection, so how can I play offline?


You can purchase Civ 5 on steam and play in offline mode. Steam will automatically put you in offline mode if an internet connection is not available.

    Game should be started at least once though, while the internet connection is working. This also enables achievements in offline mode, but 2K Games are a bit bitchy about offline mode sometimes when they have never been started at least once. And one should also go deliberatly in offline mode while online. That ensures it works. – user28015 Jul 17 '13 at 16:56
