Civilization 4 Be a Part of History

ablegamers.com
27 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Ok, I am not a hard-core gamer but I am addicted to this game. Civilization IV makes plenty of great changes and additions to just about every aspect of the hazardously habit-forming strategy blueprint that famed designer Sid Meier and his talented team have made famous the world over, from combat and diplomacy to research and production. This game is a fundamental reinvention of the franchise.

Sid Meier's Civilization IV: Colonization Review

GameSpot
3 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Civilization IV is a grand strategy game in which you build an empire that spans every epoch of human society. Civilization IV: Colonization takes a much narrower approach, challenging you to found a city in the New World, grow it into an economically viable colony, and then forge a new nation by declaring independence and defeating the king's armies. However, don't mistake lack of breadth for lack of depth.
  • Pros: Makes producing and trading commodities fun, You'll plumb new strategic depths on each playthrough, Sweeps you up in revolutionary spirit, Stirring musical score
  • Cons: Narrow focus makes each playthrough feel familiar, Diverging from standard course is possible, not practical, Trade route interface is not user-friendly

Sid Meier’s Civilization IV

Thunderbolt Games
15 November 2005
  • Excerpt: I generally try to avoid playing the Civilization series. It isn’t that the games aren’t good, it’s just they’re so damn addictive and since no game is ever the same as the last, you’re incredibly willing to keep playing for just one more turn, which ends up being about thirty turns, or sixty turns, or ninety turns, and by then, your paper’s due or you’ve stayed up too late and you’re going to be exhausted the next day.

Gameplanet
19 October 2006
  • Excerpt: Civilization is the pinnacle of strategy games and any expansion is all about adding gloss and polish to what is already a great game. Any fan of the series can be well pleased with this expansion and the new opportunities to conquer the world.
  • Pros: Six new civilizations to play and some of the best scenarios we have seen in the series so far.
  • Cons: Some minor graphics bugs.

Sid Meier's Civilization 4: Colonization

bestgamer.ru
4 March 2013
  • Summary: « Sid Meier's Civilization 4: Colonization » - это независимая игра в рамках официального дополнения (или, может, модификации?). Как и все проекты Firaxis Games - со своей глубиной и долей шарма. Другое дело, что сие развлечение отпускает так же быстро, как и увлекает. После пары-тройки партий « Колонизация » всё же надоест, разнообразия ей явно не хватает.

Sid Meier's Civilization 4: Colonization

Stopgame
26 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Из пяти слов, составляющих название игры, суть заключена в последнем. Имя носила старая (1994 г.) и некогда весьма популярная экономическая стратегия , о которой до последнего времени помнили только самые преданные фанаты. , как оказалось, тоже держала игру в памяти, а недавно выпустила ее ремейк под видом дополнения к четвертой .
  • Pros: удачное сочетание экономической и глобальной стратегии; симпатичная графика.
  • Cons: незначительные различия доступных для игры наций; надоедающий со временем микроконтроль.

Sid Meier's Civilization 4: Coloniz...

AG
15 October 2008
  • Summary: Не затасканная в сиквелах концепция Colonization по-прежнему заставляет просиживать за компьютером ночи напролет. К сожалению, она не подходит для недель беспрерывной игры — несмотря на увлекательный и оригинальный геймплей, «передозировка» однообразных действий утомит любого игрока. Зато редкие яркие партии — ее конек.
