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.

JMack, Amazon

  • Summary: I would love to have tried out this game....but it is NOT compatible with MOUNTAIN LION. I'm receiving a refund as we speak. Just wanted to give the heads up. Do NOT purchase this product if you're working with MOUNTAIN LION.

Fun, but broken on powerpc (G4, G5)

Kikaimon, Amazon
28 July 2006
  • Summary: This *is* the best civilization game to date, Fraxis did a good job in making it both more realistic and playable. It's a great deal of fun! However, Aspyr did a very *poor* port of the game. While the windows version runs on machines 2+ years old, the mac version only runs on the *latest* hardware. Performance is slow and painful on an iMac G5 and worse on G4 machines. Aspyr needs to release a patch soon to fix this game.

1.61 patch is much better than the initial release, but still slow

Michael Hayden, Amazon
28 July 2006
  • Summary: Ignore the system requirements at your own risk, because this thing runs like a fat sow on any machine more than a few months old. On my iMac G5 bought just a year ago, it's effectively unplayable at even the lowest graphics settings -- and that's at only 2000 BC! I won't even attempt to see what it's like with a full, modern world. Very disappointing.
