  • Excerpt: "This game was one of the first I played on the PC. At the time when this came out I didnt own a PC and spent days round at my neighbours house "borrowing" his PC so I could play the game. A very simple game but highly addictive. A game you will want to spend hours on and when your not on it you will be thinking about it! The graphics are not the games strong point, but to say this game is about 10 years old what do you expect. At the time of ...
  • Pros: Totally Addictive
  • Cons: getting on a bit now

  • Excerpt: "...is also responsible for the Civilization and Railroad Tycoon ranges. Before i start with this review, i should probably say now that this will contain no technical computer lingo-i will freely admit that i am a stereotypical female who doesnt understand all the technical 'requirements' etc for a game, but these will all be displayed on the box when you buy it, so i neednt comment really.....(feeble excuse i know). What i hope to give in this opinion ...
  • Pros: Each new game has a slightly different scenario

  • Excerpt: "The first thing you notice about this game is it's low level of graphics and sound. It's true: they are very clunky and poor. But then again, the game fits on a floppy or two - which is very different to the games of today! Underneath the very dated exterior there is an absolutely monsterously addictive game beneath. It's such fun: the colours are bright and the history is quite accurate (if a little hard to the British). In fact, I found the game ...
  • Pros: great fun, good historical concept
  • Cons: very dated graphics .  .  .  but not a fatal problem !

Zoom in on Civ

booknet, Ciao
15 November 2000
  • Excerpt: "I picked up Colonization fairly cheaply in a two pack with Civilisation, and I must say it was more than worth the price I paid. Think about when you are playing Civ, and click on a city, you see a little map in one corner. You can click on the map to move the production areas - instead of working on the water and producing food, you can work the mountains and mine ore. Do you know what I am talking about? Well, Colonization is effectively playing ...
  • Pros: Fun, addictive
  • Cons: Poor graphics and sound, but good for it's time .

  • Excerpt: "...levels. Thus, Colonization prolongs traditions Civilization and on a level of an intention is excreted in a number of games of a similar direction. And nevertheless, succumbs much from them in dynamics. If the implementators have increased a volume of the game, have improved to the schedule, have added visual effects and animation, the game became considerably attractive. The sound effects are designed maximum - cart go on roads, the natives cry how ...
  • Pros: Music

Another Great Sid Meier Game

Muckell, Ciao
5 August 2000
  • Excerpt: "The first time i played this it was on the Amiga 600 (those were the days). Until the other day when i saw it in the budget section for the PC i'd forgot all about it. But, boy am i addicted to it now! The idea of the game is to discover the New World you choose your nationality (England, Spain, France). Along the same lines as the great Civilisation you build your colony and persue to expand building new sites expanding old. Training people with ...
  • Pros: Cheap price, great gameplay, so addictive

  • Excerpt: "I bought this game as a budget title and was greatly surprised at just how entertaining it is. Designed on a similar basis as civilizations it is more or less reconstructing the colonization of the americas. In 2D format, the game is entertainig as well as versatile as there are a number of different scenarios to choose from and each game can last for months . It is not difficult to pick up the plot and is just a great way to spend some spare time ...
  • Pros: good and entertaining
  • Cons: None to mention

You have to build colonies and settle the continent while trading and fighting with the Native Tribes (Incas, Aztecs, Sioux, Arawak etc) and not forgetting the rival Europeans (The other three countries that you didn't ...
