Summary: I play the original Colonization on the Amiga years ago. I've also play all the Civilizations from 1 to 4 and loved every edition. So you would expect that I would have been right at home with this one.
Summary: I'm a great fan of Civ, which I've been playing since Civ2 came out. I've enjoyed Civ4 and all the expansion packs. One of the pleasures of Civ has been that the games have only been released when ready - tested and bug-free. Colonisation is an exception.
Summary: This game is superior to the original in a lot ways, but in others it is not. However, there are mods available for the single player game which make it brilliant, such as the mod age of discovery 2. The multiplayer is good and hopefully will be modded soon by the community.
Summary: I loved the original Colonisation and was afraid that this version would bear no resemblance. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was very similar, but with much better graphics. I got lost in this game for several hours, which shows how much I enjoyed it.
new Colonisation - pretty good, heart warming. Sort of

Summary: I enjoyed this, it reminded me of the original Colonisation which i played for hours on end. And this is good fun, entertaining and I found it oddly hard even on easier levels. But then i'm not too good at Civ either! Definately worth a play if you can get it cheap!
Summary: Very entertaining game, very challenging and requires lots of micro-management, but right up my street. Haven't managed to sucessfully shake off the shackles of my oppressive european rulers yet, but getting closer!
