Sid Meier’s Civilization IV: Colonization – discover a New World

Sid Meier’s Civilization IV: Colonization is a remake of the 1994 turn-based strategy game Sid Meier’s Colonization. Players control settlers from one of four European nations, Spain, England, France, or the Netherlands, that are trying to conquer/colonize the New World in the period between 1492–1792. The final goal of each player is to build up their colonies and a standing army, then declare independence from their mother country and defeat the military force that the King sends to crush the rebellion. In order to build and expand their cities, players must balance negotiations with several separate groups: the natives of the Americas, colonists from the player’s home country, and other colonists from the old world. Players may also recruit founding fathers to join their cause — each with a specific bonus that helps them throughout the game.

Civilization IV: Colonization Reviews:

8.3 Total Score

A perfect remake of a true strategy classic. The few things Firaxis changed are sensible and functional. Colonization is brilliant, not just for the way that it successfully captures the fun and feel of one of a classic PC game, but also for the way that it brings that design into a new era. The classic gameplay is mostly untouched, so all the grumpy old gamers will feel right at home.
