Summary: This is the best complete copy of Civilization 3 & 4 available. Installs entire game onto system, no need to keep the disc in drive to play. It is much more stable than the original release (civ 4 crashed constantly on windows 7). Play multiplayer online or on your own local area network. Best of all, no DRM (Digital Restriction Management)! No online activations, no steam, no codes, no nonsense.
Summary: Tried running the installer from the CD, but my CD drive was making a lot of loud and unusual noises. Instead I opened up the CD in windows explorer and copied all the files to my hard drive (CD was a lot quieter and happier), and ran the installers from my hard drive. Both installs loading correctly on Win 7 64bit and both seem to run correctly. Not sure what resolution Civ3 is at (no options to change), but it fills my 1600x900 screen. Purchased from TnsDeals..
Summary: Exactly what the doctor ordered for those bored days. Only thing missing is being able to play "Play the World" stand alone, but other than that I LOVE Civ 3 and I even play Colonization a bit here and there.
Summary: I love this collection! Civilization is a great game on it's own, and it's nice to have all the expansions built-in. In addition, it also comes with the game Colonization, which allows players to colonize a "new world" and deal with trade, taxes, and Indian attacks. These games are great for the casual player, the intense strategist, or even schoolchildren. Players can modify the settings to make the games fast or slow, easy or hard.
