Civilization IV ScreenshotCivilization IV ScreenshotIn what is great news to those of us who have been Civilization (Civilisation for our European friends) fans since the beginning (around 1991, originals on various computer and videogame platforms), or even those who have just gotten into Civilization with the relatively recent release of IV, 2K is releasing an intriguing box set that compiles nearly every Civilization game released to date, including IV (though not the new expansion, Warlords), as well as several bonuses, including a card game and book. While a list price of $69.99 seems like a bit much, we'll no doubt be able to find it for less at retail, and truth be told, even at full list I have to say it's worth it, even if I own most of what's already on there (and even the Civilization board game!), and then some. Frankly, each and every one of these games can hook you for hours on end, providing true, limitless play value.

To me, these are the perfect games, the "desert island" games, where if you were just given a choice of one game, this would be it. Every game is unique and there are countless ways to reach a conclusion, be it world conquest, reaching space first, being elected world leader, etc. (of course it also depends on game version on what options you have).

Here is the official press release (by the way, Meier is presently redoing "Railroads" as well; will "Colonization" be far behind?):

Civilization IV

I was genuinely impressed with Civ IV, though I hadn't played the earlier games. It definitely is one of the more dynamic strategy games, and the constant acquisition of new types of units allow (or force) you to constantly adapt your strategies. I spent countless days playing the game last year. At first I thought this was definitely a "desert island" game too, but after I'd played through several campaigns I got tired of it and moved on. The thrill of a game like this is really in learning rules and strategies, and getting to see all the different types of units from all the eras. Although a game like this offers far more replayability than most games, there is a limit.

I might not feel this way if the game wasn't so technically off. It's very unstable, and crashed repeatedly on my PC. There's a version out for the Mac, but from what I hear, it's also unstable. It's extremely frustrating to lose an hour of gameplay to a random crash, and it's also a pain to have to save the game so much. Once you get a big enough game going, forget it. You'll be lucky to last 10 minutes before a crash.

However, I'm already eager to see what Civ V will look like! Hopefully they'll get that memory leak fixed!

It's a shame that that

It's a shame that that happened to you, Matt. I've had no issues on my rig (XP PC), though I could have just been lucky. To some, the pinnacle of the series is still II, so I recommend you check that out if at all possible, though you must always keep in mind that each version has significant differences from an options/strategy /AI standpoint.

I first played Civ I when a

I first played Civ I when a friend showed me a copy on my birthday, then later played Civ II a good bit at a friend's house. I purchased Civ III while I was in college, since Civ IV wouldn't run on my old PC, and was kind of dissapointed they didn't change the gameplay too much; Civ IV has a lot of major changes to the interface and gameplay from what I understand.

This is a bit expensive for a compilation, although perhaps the inclusion of Civ IV and its expansion up the price a bit? The making of book sounds very interesting, though...

Civ 1 and 2

I played Civ 1 and 2 years ago and was a must-have on trips away from home on the laptop. I never had any problems playing on all different Pentium x machines or on the cheesy laptop work issued to us that had integrated graphics.

In the past couple of years though I've gone to Empire Earth as the go-to during travel. Now that Civ IV is out I'll have to give it a try. Although, I'll have to check the minimum PC specs first as mine is not state-of-the-art.

Empire Earth

I don't know much about this title, though I've often seen it on the shelf. Do you think it's better than Civ?

I just got a copy of Civ 2, and I'm really looking forward to trying it out. I'm about 3/4 the way through Broken Sword 3 now, though, and I want to finish that game before moving on to something else. ;-)

Empire Earth

It's in the same class as the CIV series, but plays heavy on the strategy side with command of tons of different human and mechanical units. It slants a bit more toward the conquering of nearby neighbors versus being ruler of the world. If you sit back and just try and build up your areas, the neighbors will do you in. In the Civ series you could sit back and build to your hearts content and not have to worry "to much" whether your neighbors would attack you. Empire Earth is alot like the Command and Conquer series. To me it's more intense than Civ, but in a different way.

Civ 4 Criticism

Hm, well I'll definitely keep my eye on the bargain bin for a reasonaly priced copy of it, forcefield. Thanks for the tip!

You know, one thing I forgot to mention earlier about Civ IV that bugged me was how each leader only got one special unit. Once the era was up for that unit, everything else was the same for all the cultures. Seemed like the Indian civs got a big advantage because their special unit (a fast worker) was useful throughout the game, whereas others (say, a redcoat) was only good for one era.

I think it's kinda dumb that all the civilizations start to look the same the closer you get to modern times. Granted, there is a lot of technology crossover in real life, but I daresay Bangalore looks a lot different than New York City. I haven't played the earlier Civ games yet, but I'm wondering if there problem is there, too.

I mean, when I think about what the Aztec civilization would've looked like if it had conquered the Europeans and made it into modern times--well, somehow I don't think it'd be the spitting image of the US.
