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.
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.
Conclusion: In 1994 I spent many an hour on the original because of its addictiveness and the "just one more turn" hook it had. This new release has tried to stay with the original and obviously now has stunning graphics using the Civ4 engine. Disappointing from the original because certain units and buildings have been omitted. Plus the turn time is very short indeed. These can be changed with the various mods out there but the game should of been perfect from the start.
Conclusion: I played the original Colonization back in the days and though it was a great game. I also love Civilization IV so I bought this game as soon as it was available, thinking that the mix of two wonderful worlds could not go wrong. This new version of Colonization, however, does not live up to my expectations.
Conclusion: Do people say that any version of civ 4 is the best ever? IT GOES TOO QUICKLY INTO THE MODERN TIMES! trying to mount a considerable bronze-age war is impossible as it can drag into 1000 years before a real victory made. civ 3 was a pinicle that not enough people recognise! i bought just the first part, and downloaded the demo's for the rest and im glad, as i didnt waste money on a boring awful-looking version of a strat game.
