Summary: I'm a big fan of the Civilization series and the old Colonization from 1994. I played it for hours and hours at a time and still do. Unfortunately this updadted version is not as good as the original. The game play is slow, it is too difficult at the various levels and the overall feel is very different from the first one.
Summary: i did not enjoy it at all, i thought it would be more "sims" like in graphics and action. It is actually very slow,tedious and boring. the graphics are not that good and the tutorial is useless. don't waste your money on this one.
Summary: Buyer beware - the product description does not describe some important aspects of the game: This game secretly installs copy-protection software called SecuROM which can cause many problems for your computer, some of which are: 1. When installing the game the user is not informed that SecuROM is being installed. 2. SecuROM denies administrators full access to their PC, and blocks the administrator from editing certain parts of the registry. 3.
Summary: I'm a big fan for all the Civilization Games but this one really let me down. The game seams pointless to me. They want you to colonize the New World but time runs out before you can even get started. I like conflict and taking over other civ's and in this game these thing take a back seat. I'm sorry. I put it away and maybe some day I'll try again.
Summary: I can't belief what reviews I am seeing here - are we talking about the same game? As I am a fan of the old colonization, I was thrilled to see it come back to life, though under the Civ4 cover. I even pre-ordered it to have right from the start. Since I do not own Civilization4, I have no way of comparing the two games and can not draw from experience from Civ4.
Summary: William Kerney wrote a pretty definitive negative review for Amazon for this title, just look his up, he's dead on. I just want to add my voice and vote to the naysayers of this game: Don't believe the Civ fans, this game stinks. I've played all the Civ titles over the last 20 or so years, and this is the only Civ game in the series that just doesn't work.
Summary: I am a big fan of the Civilization series.. including CIV IV, but this game is a big disappointment.. started out fun (a different twist) with the micromanagement and trading with the home country. But.. the game ends too quick, there's no incentive to build a productive colony (if you do, you'll lose).. Previous reviewers hit this on the nose. Maybe, if the game didn't end so quick...
Summary: You know, I have always enjoyed Sid games, all the way back to the C-64 days. Absolutely loved Pirates. Now comes Colonization, love the old version and tought I could get into this one. Prices are fixed, the indian know how much stuff sells for and what the purchace prices are in the empire and do not give you a fair shake at all. I don't see how a person could win at this game. Now for the really horrible part, SecuRom!!!
