NOT compatible with Windows 7 Profession and NVIDIA GForce graphics

Marilyn Armstrong, Amazon
14 February 2015
  • Summary: Civ III would not display properly (or run at all) on my Alienware gaming laptop. Definitely a graphics conflict. I think the graphics are too old and too low resolution for this machine. CIV IV will run, but the audio hisses and locks the machine. The ONLY thing that has ever caused this machine to lock up. These are not games for a high end, high res gaming computer. Ironically, they probably would run better on an older -- or just lower resolution -- machine.

Does not include non-Conqests .exe files

  • Summary: Bought this as an alternative to Steam in the hopes that a physical CD would include the vanilla and PTW executables, since I don't like Conquests. Nope.

This used to be a great series of games

Murph, Amazon
23 November 2014
  • Summary: This used to be a great series of games. However since STEAM has gotten involved, you cannot play off line, I cannot take my game with me in the car on long trips when the wife drives, no creative cheat codes, and if STEAM does not condescend to allow you to access YOUR game, you are out of luck. The game seems "buggier" with STEAM, The only reason it does not get one star, is that I did it to myself, I ordered it, I downloaded it and regrettably I paid for it.

Glitchy

Jennifer Hur, Amazon
31 March 2014
  • Summary: I LOVE Civ 4, always have. I bought the mac download version a while ago but it suddenly became glitchy - all the links and buttons began to say FUNCTION_GAMEPLAY_KEY instead and I simply couldn't continue. Tried to re-download it but it didn't help.

Step down from Civ III

Andrew Arnold, Amazon
22 February 2014
  • Summary: I wanted to like this game, but it just didn't stand up next to Civ III. It seemed to favor graphical sophistication over depth of strategy.

Need key disk to run

Kevin Murphy, Amazon

  • Summary: I dislike having to put the CD in a drive to play a game, especially very long games like these. Makes it hard to multitask.

Limited Compatibility - Understand before purchasing

Gregory, Amazon
3 September 2013
  • Summary: This add on for Civ 4 only works with the Steam purchased version of Civ 4. I purchased the Mac download of the Civ 4 game from Amazon and purchased this add on. The add on will not work unless you 1) Have or create a Steam account and 2) buy the Steam version of Civ 4 ($19.99) as of this writing. This should be explained better in the product description. Two stars not for the game quality, but for the distribution restrictions/requirements.
