PC Review: Sid Meier’s Civilization IV – Colonization

October 30, 2008 by · Comments Off on PC Review: Sid Meier’s Civilization IV – Colonization 

Is it worth colonizing this game?

Sid Meier’s Civilization IV: Colonization is the third offering in the award winning Civilization IV series. A re-imagining of the classic Colonization game Sid Meier created in 1994, Sid Meier’s Civilization IV: Colonization is a total conversion of the Civilization IV engine into a game experience in which players will lead a European nation on their quest to conquer and rule the New World. Players will be challenged to guide their people from the oppressive motherland, discover a New World, negotiate, trade and fight with both the natives and other nations as they acquire great power and fight for their freedom and independence.

I’m not the greatest at strategy-simulation games. I struggled with Black and White 2 and the past Civ titles, although Civ Revolution was great and I had a good time with it. Mainly because it was made for consoles that I was able to enjoy it and control it better than PC simulation games. So how can Civ IV Colonization tempt me over? Well, while it doesn’t do anything to change the formula, it’s a solid game that I thoroughly enjoyed playing. The main reason for that is that the game reminded me of Civ Revolution with its exploring, conversations, war and the like. I can now see why the series has been popular over the years; this expansion is also great because you don’t even need the original game to play it.
