  • Summary: This sequel to Call to Power 1 adds more units and more features to the game but doesn't fix the almost gamebreaking flaws of the original (overpowered ranged units in army battles, overpowered special units), resulting in another average Civilization-inspired 4x game.

CTP and CIVIII

Cid de Toledo, Amazon
11 March 2005
  • Summary: CTP (call to power) will give you a long game filled with many many choices. I will compare CTP with CIVIII. These games are very similar. They are almost exactly the same in how a city is managed. Each city has the 20 nearest squares from which to draw resources for its livelyhood.

I bought Civ3 and went back to CTP2!

Mr Leroy Anderson, Amazon

  • Summary: Yes, this game is quite old now, however, I dig it out and play it every 3 months or so. I have also been able to get several friends into it... even recently! They didn't mind that the graphics look a bit out-dated, especially compared to the ("fisher-price" looking) Civilization 3.

*The* simulation game

William Springer, Amazon
1 January 2003
  • Summary: While this game is getting a bit old (and thus, cheaper :-)), it remains one of the best simulation games that I've played. Activision does have a nasty habit of rushing games out the door and then posting patches online (get the patch!) but CtP II features solid gameplay for hours of enjoyment.

CTP vs. Civ

Chris Trent, Amazon
5 June 2002
  • Summary: Starting caveat: I am originally a Civ player although I picked up CTP/CTP2 in lieu of CivIII. First of all, CTP2 is FAR superior to CTP. They definitely fixed alot of the balance problems. (Although they didn't get the trade mechanism figured out.) The game is incredibly deep.

OK game if you really can't wait for Civ 3

P. A. Cook, Amazon
2 June 2001
  • Summary: I bought this game with high expectations. I had ignored some less favourable reviews, because there are always some purists who complain about things being different from previous Civilization games. However, I was disappointed with this release.

This game is very fun!

Amazon
8 April 2001
  • Summary: I was really excited to get this game after I had beat CTP quite a few times. When I finally bought it I was very impressed about what Activision did in a short amount of time. The only big disappointment I had was the outer space part of the game being taken out.

Save your money for Civilization III

LJS, Amazon
22 January 2001
  • Summary: If you have not played Sid Meier's original Civilization or Civilization II (without the Call to Power in the title) then you do not know how good this game use to be. Civilization III is probably a few months away.

Seriously flawed-- If I could return this game, I would

Keith R. Hartman, Amazon
29 December 2000
  • Summary: Personally, I feel ripped off for having wasted money on this product. Like Call to Power 1, the game has some interesting features, particularly the variety of stealth units. However, the game suffers from a number of MAJOR PROBLEMS.
