I always enjoyed the original box to Civ, with the egyptian sarcophagus (*ch. spl.) beneath the city, but never played it.
I have corrected this error and can now safely say its better than Mega Lo Mania and Populous 2, and similarly ace as whichever one of the Caesar's was good. And Settlers 2. Thanks.
But Civ IV's the best.
I'm in the middle of an epic 18 Civ domination game right now actually - me, Montezuma, and Catherine have mopped up the smaller civs and are now circling each other carefully...
work on my shit PC?
and can you get it for mac?
If it's 3/4 years old then it probably will, but only small games, really slowly, and with lowest graphics.
I've got a pretty beefy machine and it struggles with any games with more than 6 civs in. It's amazing how shit the engine is, really. Every patch that comes out seems to make it run better, though.
I love the Earth map. I controlled both South and North America at one point as the Americans, and then had a massive world war with the Chinese over South East Asia and Australasia. It was so much fun.
it's amazing. i've been playing it for ten years or so now, if you look around the internets hard enough you can probably find some crappy scenarios i made when i was 16-ish :D
he's about 10 years old. He's been playing it non stop and has told my dad that "oh my gosh, I'm so happy that I could almost cry".
i actually owned this on the Playstation, fucking addicted i was, too. then i made Alpha Centauri my first PC game, and so on and so forth
Civ 3 was a disappointment, but Civ 4 was great
i love these kinds of strategy games :D
