For me, I hated that the game forced you to build a few megacities instead of a lot of smaller towns like I like to play. With civ 3 there was a lot more land so there were differing strategies with your expansion, in civ 4, you are highly punished for being an expansionist civ. Plus there wasn't enough land to go around in civ4. Most games I played I was having a hard time getting ten cities in my territory and every city above 5-6 was getting so ridic. expensive. It also made armies smaller and lame. Combine that with defensive bonuses in cities and I had a very frustrating civ4 experience. O nice... my whole army couldn't take his capital? ok I quit.
