Summary: This product is not a legitimate copy of Civ 3. My PC tried to boot it and said the attached license key is invalid. Lucky it didn't cost too much. better off buying a new version of Civ at Best Buy.
Summary: Yes this game is amazing in every way shape and form however the product sold her is not what you see on the picture. I bought the origional civ 3 gold when it first came out and fell in love with it. Unfortionately due to age and overuse my discs needed replacing. So I came here and bought this. What you get is two cd's in a tiny case. Not the big box you see here.
Summary: Beautiful game, if you own a PC. After recently purchasing a MacBook, I decided that Civilization III was a must have for my new computer. After installing this game on my mac, I found out the provided serial number was invalid. Ratings: Aspyr-0 out of 10 Civilization III-9 out of 10 ASPYR STOLE MY GAME! I will probably torrent this game, as I purchased it legally, and was given a broken game.
Summary: I ordered the software and it came without a serial number and the software does not work. I have exchanged at least 4 e-mails with them and have still not been able to get it to work. I can only assume that the software that Amazon sold was a fraud. Very disappointing.
Summary: Ok, so in eager anticipation of the release of the third installment of the best, and most time consuming, game in computing history, I went ahead and did the logical thing: I dumped my girlfriend. It would have happened eventually I figured, the choice being the game or her and I figured I might as well make a clean break of it-lest it interfere with the countless months of fun that lay ahead. I eagerly installed the game.
Summary: While Civilization III *should* have been a significant update to the Civilization games, it is not. In short, it is a huge disappointment. If you already own Civilization II, stick with it--you'll be happy you did. And if you don't have any Civilization game yet, try to get a copy of Civilization II on Auctions first before you you actually give your money to Infogrames. The problems with Civilization III outweigh its advances: 1.
Summary: A great, classic game series has joined GTA in the moral sewer. I hope everyone will demand a replacement without this. If murder - even fantasy murder - can win a game, that game is not fit to sell. In contrast, Civ III had reached new moral heights for the series by capturing workers rather than executing them like many other games. I was a real fan since the original CIV. I never admired any nation that practised mass murder; why do they think any civilization would?

Summary: Rundenbasierte Strategiespiele sind Geschmackssache, ich wollte es aber ernsthaft ausprobieren und kann danach Folgendes sagen: Es gibt nirgendwo eine Anleitung oder ein Tutorial aus der für Anfänger erkennbar hervorgeht wie dieses Spiel überhaupt funktioniert. Strategiehinweise gibt es im Netz massenweise aber mit dem was auf diesen CDs mitgegeben wird ist man hoffnungslos verloren.
