Civilization IV: Colonization
8 June 2012
Excerpt: Anyone who has ever played a Civilization game knows how addictive these can be. And with good right, they’re beautiful games with incredibly deep gameplay that can keep you occupied for a couple of years even (just read some of the great reviews on Civ4!).
Excerpt: There’s an M60 machinegunner on the floor above me that’s ruining my team’s kill/death ratio. I’m carrying a sniper rifle, so storming up the stairs (which might be mined with tripwire explosives) into close-quarters combat won’t end well.
Excerpt: Breach Review Publisher: Atomic Games Platform: PC , Xbox 360 UK Price (as reviewed): £9.99 Inc. VAT US Price (as reviewed): $19.99 Exc. Tax Breach is not a very good game.

Video Games Reloaded
30 October 2008
Conclusion: Being an expansion pack, Colonization offers quite a lot to the table and will impress fans and newcomers alike with a new interface that’s easy to use. It may be getting a bit old and dated now, but it’s still a solid game that any strategy fan will love.
