Summary: If you like the game. As i do... you like the game.. period. It's just quick entertainment for me. So nothing to important. Regarding the product... as a download... the download worked smooth but i use W8 and it's not the best platform for this game... you will definitely experience some glitches, errors... or odd stuff.... still be able to play and enjoy it..
Summary: Many good, if old games, in one package. One nice feature is that you don't have to leave the disk in your dvd drive after you install and when you want to play the game. My favorite is Beyond the Sword, which is a much richer game than Civ4 or Warlords. It is a lovely strategy game with many different modes of winning.
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.
