Reviews and Problems with Civilization IV: Colonization

Don't Buy Colonisation
18 June 2009
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.
Shame they didn't go the extra mile - read 3 stars

Summary: Update: 3 stars now the game works! I previously reviewed that I couldn't get the game to work. Well, I returned it and the new one works fine. I had high expectations for the game being a huge Civilisation, Alpha Centauri and original colonization fan.
Summary: Maybe I'm completely stupid (though I've spent years playing Civs 2-4, Alpha Centauri etc.) but I find this game ridiculously, unenjoyably hard, and basically not a lot of fun. I've only actually completed two games out of about ten played and in both cases was conclusively wiped out by the finale:...
Summary: As someone who has played CIV IV probably once a week since it came out, I am very disappointed with this. Deeply tedious and unengaging, with very limited options. The makers of CIV IV have disappeared up thier own self-regard with this one...
Summary: This game contains the nefarious copy protection SecuROM. I refuse to be treated as a criminal when I pay for a product. The game is unopened in my shelf, and will not be played. Take2 can take 5 and shove it.
Summary: Le jeu ne peut pas démarrer car il détecte un émulateur dans l'ordinateur. Après plusieurs recherches sur internet (sites, forum, ...), pas de solution trouvée. Très mécontent de l'achat sur Amazone.
