"Will not run on AMD processor, but a great game."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Will not run on AMD processor, not sure if any other processors have the same problem. But previous experience of Alpha Centauri allows me to recommend this game to lovers of turn based strategy games. Like all Sid Meir games this is better than most of the competition for the time it was created. I remember being impressed by the graphics the first time I played it, better than Civ2, not as advanced as Civ3. It also uses many features from other games (like goodie huts) and adds new ones like the way you design, construct and upgrade the ships (which can be time consuming) The goodie huts can give you a big advantage, giving Techs, units or cash. Like Civilization 1 – 4, Colonization (original and Civ 4), Railroad Tycoon 1 & 2 this game is capable of long hours of game play that really fly past. A truly great game.

"I should have reads Daves Review at #2"
1 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Will not run on AMD processor. Not sure if it is the processor or Windows 7 but I have been unable to get the programme to run. It installs fine and the Menu comes up but when play is selected the screen goes blank and it shuts down.

*****Make sure you check your system before buying this******

"Absorbing gameplay"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I used to have a demo version of this many years ago which I loved, but now having the complete game I am enjoying it even more! Endless combinations of philosophies and resources mean this game is infinately re-playable and there is so much depth to the technologies that each faction develops you'll always discover something new.
