Disappointing Remake

E. Lehmann, Amazon
21 February 2011
  • 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.

This game secretly installs malware

Ferdinand, Amazon
6 May 2009
  • 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.

Nice game - Sucky DRM (SecuRom)

Rhonda Drummond "Koga Kitsune", Amazon
12 November 2008
  • 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!!!

Pointless

Jesse W. Morris, Amazon
31 October 2008
  • 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.

Very disappointed

C. Murphy, Amazon
18 October 2008
  • 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...

So close but so far away

Chris Nibley "mr. fahrenheit", Amazon
10 October 2008
  • Summary: I really like this period of history and was excited to have an interactive experience with which to live out some fantasies of living on the wild frontier, but this game took all the fun out of it and while it has so much potential, I gave up playing it after 3 days because I found myself more frustrated at what it wasn't than entertained by what it was. My biggest problem with it are the restrictions. You have to play this game the way that Sid Meier wants you too.

Deeply Flawed Game Mechanics

William Kerney, Amazon
7 October 2008
  • Summary: As a disclaimer, I love Civ IV, and have loved every game Sid Meier has done to date, including the original Colonization. So it's actually quite painful for me to give this game such a dismal rating. In a nutshell, the game is horrendously flawed. When you start playing it (and this is where I think most people are reviewing the game), it appears to actually be quite fun - you develop an economy, trade with Indians, make heaps of money, expand inland, build huge trade...
