  Better than Civ5

| | See all MrMatt0001's reviews (2)

I have played the series since Civ1. Recently purchased Civ5, but it doesn't live up to Civ4. Civ4 is simply the best turn based strategy game ever made.

  It does work!

| | See all JohnoF20's reviews (4)

Ignore other reviewers, it does work on both vista and 7 (with minor complications which are easily fixed if you simply type your problem into google, which is the easiest way to sort your problem) This game is a classic and really doesn't deserve reviewers to rate the game purely on if it works on their system? Forgive me if you think i'm wrong but this is not a review? Overall 90% game, and I look forward to civ 5.

It is an excellent game but, unfortunately, it has known yet unresolved compatibility issues and doesn't work on Windows Vista. Still waiting for solution...
*** I can confirm: NOW IT WORKS on all Win 32/64 platforms

i have this game and loved the series 10 years ago just brought this set and love it. i am fortunate enough to own 3 computers one has vista32bit one has vista 64 bit and the other is windows 7, this game runs hassle free on all 3 systems so no problem there.

  At this price.... no brainer

The finest strategy title on the PC, plus expansions... for a fiver... it's a steal. Even if you're not sure if you like the genre, well, it will cost you five english pounds to find out. For me, Civ 4 blends military conquest with diplomacy, religion, and history so finely, and without ever seeming daunting, that it ranks as one of the best games I've ever played.

Granted, twitchy FPS and RTS gamers will probably find it a little slow, and the graphics are just starting to look dated, but this game is the king of the mantra- just... one... more... turn...

  Fantastic

I've been playing the various incarnations of this wonderful game since 1991 on my old amiga *goes misty eyed in nostalgia* ..... ahem, sorry. The best turn based strategy game out there, and now for a fiver for all the expansions too, thats a bargain, highly recommended!

The graphics are obviously much better than previous Civilization games. Overall it's a good one and can be quite addictive! However it has too many rules to learn before you can actually start playing. May come off confusing for new users.

Complete pack with the best from Sid Meier's collection, I spent too many hours of the day playing this and after all this years I still love it and find it most addictive.. simply the best!
