This is a classic game that hasn't been surpassed ever

Summary: One small bug...in Scenario Creation mode, when the scenario is played, the fishing boats don't fish. And in Random Game mode, the human player cannot start at another age than the computer and have a little fun. And the programmers let the computer cheat by analyzing your home islands (or wherever you are) and entering at your weak points. But the invention of Priest Towers is still the best design feature ever on the Expansion Disk.
Summary: I bought this game almost 10 years ago for my old Window XP PC, and after so many years I decided to look it up and buy it for that Nostalgic feeling. First off I love the game though the graphics take a little getting used to since I am normally running Direct10x games with Graphics on Ultra-Max setting. Playing this game and seeing how much RTS games have improved since 10 years ago still mind boggles me.
Summary: I've played this game over and over again for years. I never get tired of it and prefer it to subsequent versions. Even without the expansion pack, this is one of my favorites. The game offers endless variety, which is why it can be played again with as much interest as the first time you try it. The varying difficulty levels should challenge anyone, while also giving those with less experience a chance to enjoy themselves.
Summary: I'm only 14 but my brother had this game. It's one of the funnest games I've ever played. I dont know what it is but you can sit there for hours endlesly playing (with a few bathroom breaks here and there)The game consists of of time zones. from prehistoric times to the future. You choose where to start and you compete with the computer to survive. you can keep playing the game until 1. you get tired of it 2. you run out of resources or 3. your computer crashes.
