Default Civ 5 or Settlers 7

Have been playing Cityville on FB (I know, I know!) and it's revived my interest in RTS if nothing else. Was tossing up between Civ 5 and Settlers 7 and wondered if anyone could give me an extremely basic run down of the differences (I know I'm asking alot ) Settlers 7 is on sale today on steam, but don't want to buy it if it will frustrate the hell out of me or if Civ 5 is way better.

Any advice is greatly appreciated

I have been loving Civ 5 since launch but then I have loved every Civ since 1.

Settlers 7 is more like CityVille than Civ 5.

Civ 5 seems more turn based, where Sett 7 is all in real time (ie the game doesn't stop for you to perform your turn).

I too am toying with buying Settlers, really liked the demo.

PS - PM me your name if you want another CityVille neighbour, I'm currently 38 and normally play daily.

Yeah I'm downloading the settlers 7 demo now. Was playing Civ 5 demo last night and, although the game itself looks pretty sweet the turn base was annoying for me.
I'll see how Settlers go.

At the moment I am not able to get the demo for settlers. I've tried 3 sites (all ones I trust) and the file is corrupt. Little annoying. But the more I look into it the more I think this is more the type of game i'm looking for.

I love the settlers, got it and 2 addon packs. The 1 issue i have with it is the ai is too quick on the technology and trading research, i.e they seem to start on it while your still building basic buildings, leaving you without the option of attempting to beat them to it
