Works on Windows 8
1 May 2014
Summary: This game is awesome! I easily got it to work on windows 8 and windows 8.1. These were not the pro or preview versions. After I installed it (recommended and agree with everything) I did not click on the disk icon. You will always get colonization if you click on the disk drive icon. Click on the OS (C:) drive icon. This is usually to the left of the disk drive icon. Next, click on the Program Files, or Program Files (x86) if you have the second one.
Summary: I'm not a gamer, nor am I highly computer literate. New Lenovo laptop with Windows 7; when I read that some people have to use patches - about which I'd be clueless - then I feared spending much on any Civilization game, but decided I could risk six bucks. Put disc in reader, and let Wizard do it's "Recommended" install, I wouldn't know how to do a "Custom" anyway, and crossed my fingers.
Summary: I returned to Civ IV after trying Civ V because of the vastly superior game play in the earlier version. Version V loses much of the functionality of the earlier versions and dramatically slows system speed.
Summary: This is one of my favorite games of all time and I still keep coming back to it after years. Great game design, diplomacy, and scenarios. The random events of the expansion are a bit annoying but add a dimension to the game that was not there before.
Summary: The version I bought came with Civ III and all of its expansions, Civ IV and all of its expansions, plus Colonization. People looking at this game probably already know about the same, so I just wanted to point out that this is a great value, even if it doesn't come with Civ III anymore.
