Can't just jump in and play!

Allyson Newell "Looking4trth", Amazon

  • Summary: A little more complicated than I am used to. After all, the purpose of a "game" is to "play" and distract yourself from unpleasantness around you.

Greatest game of all time, but Mac version not quite there

Karl Morgan "Karl J. Morgan, sci-fi and fanta..., Amazon
8 March 2014
  • Summary: First I must say that I've played the Civilization franchise since it first came out. I have loved each iteration, except Civilization 5. I had to use my wife's MacBook for a few weeks when my PC died, and I needed at least one game to play so I downloaded Civ 4. It is still the same incredible game, but the interface with my Mac left a lot to be desired.

Nice update to the Civ series for MAC

GarrettCampbell "Garrett", Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: I became addicted to Civ back when it was Civ I or II. I liked the simple interface. It didn't have too many bells and whistles because the hardware of those days usually couldn't handle it. What I dislike about the present version is the inability to turn off the animation. I would rather that a fighter or a settler or whoever would just appear in a space when I click on it. I seem to have to wait for the animation to take him across the squares.

Quite incomplete

TMW, Amazon
2 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this here because it's a bargain compared to other sites, but it turned out to need a lot of updates that didn't install very smoothly. If you really want to play Civ IV instead of V, just put the couple of extra bucks into buying it from another source where it's more complete and/or auto-updates.

Maybe it is not for me

Nguyen Khoi, Amazon
1 December 2013
  • Summary: I heard a lot of good things about this game, I gave it a try and was really disappointed. The game is not bad, but it is not good enough to keep me playing it for hours. I quit for the first 30 minutes. What I hate most is that it still requires a CD to play, while the other games I have at home do not (even a very old game like Warcraft 3 does not require me to put in my CD).

OK Game, not as good as other versions of Civ

Joseph T. Allen, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: Civ III - Call to Power has more interesting game play. The user interface on this game leaves something to be desired. Not a fan of the new combat math/algorythms, but a decent game in all. Shipping and all was excellent. The rating is for the game quality itself, no the vendor.

Solid game

  • Summary: Good game play, solid game but nothing special. I enjoy playing it. Better than Civ 3 or 5. I would buy it again.

Incompatible with Windows 8

  • Summary: The version I bought closed down after a few uses with Windows 8 and will not come back. I'm waiting for the right version. Okay while it lasted, though a bit slow.

Fun game, annoying support

S. Hinkle, Amazon
10 August 2008
  • Summary: I bought the Gold edition and the Beyond the Sword expansion pack and overall I think this game is excellent when you are playing it. I really have to say it is addictive and as long as you are happy with the game right out of the box and assuming you are not the type of person to read the manual anyway you will love it. Unfortunately it had a few shortcomings: - documentation claimed that the full manual was on disc 3 (Gold) but at least on mine it wasn't there.

Still can't top Civ II

J. Marsano "Gerade aus Brooklyn", Amazon
7 January 2008
  • Summary: Sure, in terms of graphical sophistication and rules, this latest Civ is the most impressive yet. But in terms of sheer escapist fantasy power, it doesn't hold a candle to Civ II. The problem with making things gorgeous to look at, especially at high resolution and in detail, is that the game slows down considerably. By the time you have invested 8 hours playing a round, and your little empire has grown, you want the game to proceed a snappy pace.
