Civilization (1991)



Incompatible with Windows Vista 64-bit SP1.


Compatible with Windows Vista 32-bit SP1. See Install Notes


Sid Meier's Civilization is a turn-based strategy computer game created by Sid Meier for MicroProse in 1991. The game's objective is"...to build an empire that would stand the test of time". The game begins in 4000 BC, and the players attempt to expand and develop their empires through the ages until modern and near-future times. It is also known simply as Civilization, or abbreviated to Civ or Civ I.

Game Information
Civilization is a turn-based single-player computer game. The player takes on the role of the ruler of a civilization starting with only one or two Settler units. The player attempts to build an empire in competition with between two and six other civilizations. The game requires a fair amount of micromanagement (although less than any of the simulation games).

Along with the larger tasks of exploration, war and diplomacy, the player has to make decisions about where to build new cities, which improvements or units to build in each city, which advances in knowledge should be sought (and at what rate), and how to transform the land surrounding the cities for maximum benefit. From time to time the player's towns may be harassed by barbarians, units with no specific nationality and no named leader. These threats only come from unclaimed land or sea, so that over time there are fewer and fewer places barbarians will emanate from.

Civilization II (1996)






Untested See Install Notes


Sid Meier's Civilization II, a.k.a. Civ II, is a turn-based strategy computer game designed by Brian Reynolds, Douglas Caspian-Kaufman and Jeff Briggs. Although it is a sequel to Sid Meier's Civilization, neither Sid Meier nor Bruce Shelley were involved in its development. Civilization II was first released in 1996 for the PC and later ported to the Sony PlayStation.

Game Information
Civilization II is similar to the first Civilization, with some changes to the units, civilizations, additional wonders, tile "specials" and technologies. The graphics (greatly improved with clickable links and movable windows) were changed from a top-down view to an isometric representation. The Artificial Intelligence, or AI, was improved upon as well, including the elimination of most random events (such as the situation where Wonders of the World were built spontaneously in the original Civilization) by now making the computer player go through the same production requirements as the human player.

Civilization II Multiplayer Gold Edition (1996)



Compatible with Windows Vista 64-bit SP1.


Later, the original game was re-released as Civilization II: Multiplayer Gold Edition, which bundled both prior expansion packs (Fantastic Worlds) and added options for networked and hotseat play, and features tweaked AI. However, all of the music tracks that were in the original release of Civilization II have been removed - only some of the "new" ones remain. The tweaked AI is also perpetually unfriendly, rendering most diplomatic functions useless.

Civilization II Test of Time (1999)



Compatible with Windows Vista 64-bit SP1.


Civilization II: Test of Time, released in 1999, is a turn-based strategy game similar to the best selling game Civilization II. Test of Time's central innovation was the addition of multiple maps and the inclusion of two campaigns concerning science fiction and fantasy themes.

Game Information
Test of Time included an exact replica of the old Civilization II campaign, with only a few minor changes. Cosmetically, however, it looked quite different, with all-new art and animated units. Test of Time also offered the option to undertake the Extended Original campaign, which was identical to the Original except that the "pink" slot for a civilization was occupied by aliens on Alpha Centauri. When one built the Alpha Centauri spaceship, instead of ending the game, it unlocked a secondary tech tree and allowed the player to battle the Centaurians.

Civilization Call to Power (1999)



Compatible with Windows Vista 64-bit SP1.


Civilization: Call to Power (CivCTP) is a PC turn-based strategy game developed by Activision as a successor to the extremely successful Civilization computer game by Sid Meier.

Game Information
Part of this series of highly successful turn-based strategy games, this is Activision's follow-up to the original Civilization. The game incorporates numerous modifications over the earlier game, with improved graphics and interface. The game covers the whole period of human civilization from 4000 BC to beyond the present and it is possible to take your civilization into space. There is a large choice of historically-based races to choose from or you can create your own. The multi-player mode enables games via LAN to Net connection.

Call to Power 2 (2000)



Compatible with Windows Vista 64-bit SP1.


Call to Power II (CTP2) is a PC turn-based strategy game released by Activision as a sequel to Civilization: Call to Power, which was, in turn, a game similar to the Civilization computer game by Sid Meier. The game could not have "Civilization" in its title because the word is trademarked by the makers of the original Civilization series.[1] In October 2003, Activision released the source code, enabling the Apolyton gaming community to debug, improve, and add new features.

Game Information
Call to Power II (CTP2) had a number of differences from the previous Civilization: Call to Power (CTP). Many reviewers and players criticised CTP for its interface, which prompted a complete redesign of the user interface in CTP2. Overall, the CTP2 interface is largely considered cleaner and easier to use, although not without its shortcomings, many of which were caused by programming bugs.

CTP2 also included several gameplay differences. Maximum army size was increased, some balance adjustments were made to avoid the balance problems from the original CTP (for example, Ships of the Line were so powerful in CTP that getting them first could mean winning the game), and the economic system in CTP2 was reworked so that controlling good terrain became more profitable. Another difference in CTP2 is that the player can receive bonuses for certain achievements, if s/he is the first to do the action (recapturing a city, sailing around the world, etc).

The diplomacy model in CTP2 is a major improvement over CTP diplomacy, with more agreements available for negotiation. Players could, for example, ask the AI controlled civilizations to stop researching some technology, or to reduce their nuclear weapons arsenal.

Space colonization and the space layer were removed from CTP2, along with the "Alien Life Project" victory condition. Another victory condition was introduced, which required the player to cover most of the planet's territory with Gaia sensors and build the Gaia controller wonder, winning the game.

Civilization III (2001)



Compatible with Windows Vista 64-bit SP1.


Sid Meier's Civilization III is a turn-based strategy computer game by Firaxis Games, the sequel to Sid Meier's Civilization II and followed by Civilization IV. Also called Civ 3 or Civ III for short, the game is the third generation of the original Civilization. The game offers highly evolved gameplay in terms of both mechanics and strategy. Unlike the original game, Civ III was not designed by Sid Meier, but by Jeff Briggs, a game designer, and Soren Johnson, a game programmer.

Game Information
Civilization III, like the other Civilization games, is based around building an empire, from the ground up, beginning at start of recorded history and continuing beyond the current modern day. The player's civilization is centered around a core of cities that provide the resources necessary to grow the player's cities, construct city improvements, wonders, and units, and advance the player's technological development. The player must balance a good infrastructure, resources, diplomatic and trading skills, technological advancement, city and empire management, culture, and military power to succeed.

Civilization III Play the World (2002)



Compatible with Windows Vista 64-bit SP1.


Civilization III: Play the World, released in 2002, is the first expansion pack for the award winning game Civilization III. Play the World added more civilizations, a new multiplayer feature, new Wonders of the World, new units and new game modes, including: elimination, regicide, and capture the flag.

Game Information
One of the major features of Play the World was a turnless game mode, a new concept never used in the previous versions of the Civilization series. The game mode allowed a sort of mixture between turn based and real time gameplay. Although the concept was good on paper, it never actually worked very well and many online players experienced Out of sync issues along with others. Little support from Firaxis and the sundry other issues resulted in the game mode not returning in Civ IV.

Civilization III Conquests (2003)



Compatible with Windows Vista 64-bit SP1.


Civilization III: Conquests is the second and final expansion for the award-winning and best-selling computer game Civilization III. It was published in 2003. This expansion added seven new civilizations to the game, and including the eight civilizations from Play the World this brings the total number of playable civilizations up to thirty-one (the maximum supported by the game). The new civilizations are the Byzantines, the Dutch, the Hittites, the Incans, the Mayans, the Portuguese and the Sumerians. In addition to these playable civilizations, graphics for the Austrians are present in the editor so one can replace an existing civilization.

Game Information
Two new special traits are added in this pack: seafaring and agricultural. The new civilizations take advantage of these new traits (e.g. the Sumerians are Scientific and Agricultural), and the old civilizations are changed to more appropriate ones (e.g. the English have been changed from Expansionist and Commercial to Seafaring and Commercial).

New governments have also been added to the game, Feudalism and Fascism, and new Wonders of the World such as the Statue of Zeusand the Mausoleum of Mausollos. Four new bonus resources have been included, two of which provide food bonuses to previously unprofitable terrain. Oases can now be found in deserts, tropical fruit in jungles, sugar on plains and hills, and tobacco on grasslands and hills. In addition, two new types of terrain have been added. These are marshes and volcanoes. Players cannot construct cities on marshes, and cannot improve volcanoes in any way. Like jungles and flood plains, cities that have at least 1 citizen working a marsh may succumb to disease. Volcanoes may periodically erupt, destroying all improvements and cities and killing any units in some or all adjacent squares.

The centerpiece of this expansion pack, however, was the inclusion of scenarios, intended for multiplayer gaming. Unlike the main ("epic") game, these scenarios took much less time to play, and focused on a specific period in history. Scenarios included in this expansion were Mesopotamia, the Rise of Rome, the Fall of Rome, the Middle Ages in Europe, Mesoamerica, the Age of Discovery, the Napoleonic Wars, the Sengoku period in Japan, and the Pacific Theatre of World War II.

Civilization IV (2005)



Compatible with Windows Vista 64-bit SP1.


Sid Meier's Civilization IV (Civilization 4 or Civ4) is a turn-based strategy computer game released in 2005 and developed by lead designer Soren Johnson under the direction of Sid Meier and Meier's studio Firaxis Games. It is the fourth instalment of the Civilization series. Civilization IV was released between October 25 and November 4, 2005 in North America, Europe, and Australia. The game's first expansion, Warlords, was released on July 24, 2006 in the United States and July 28, 2006 in the European Union. A second expansion, Beyond, was released worldwide between July 18 and July 30, 2007. As of March 26, 2008, Civilization IV has sold 3 million copies according to Take-Two Interactive.

Game Information
Civilization IV is a turn-based game in which the player builds an empire from very limited initial resources. All standard full-length games begin in 4000 BC with a settler who builds a single city. From there, the player expands an empire while contending with rival nations, using the geography, developing infrastructure, and encouraging scientific and cultural progress. By default, players can win the game by accomplishing one of five goals: conquering all other civilizations, controlling the majority of the world's land and population, being the first to land a colonizing ship on Alpha Centauri, increasing the Culture ratings of three different cities to "legendary" levels, or by being declared "World Leader" by winning a popularity election through the United Nations. If the game's clock runs out (by default in the year 2050 AD) with none of these goals fulfilled by any nation, the nation with the highest score is declared the winner.

Civilization IV Colonization (2008)



Compatible with Windows Vista 64-bit SP1.


Civilization IV: Colonization is a remake, using the Civilization IV engine, of the 1994 PC 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 time period between 14921792. 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.

Game Information
In order to build and expand their cities, players must balance negotiations with several separate groups: the natives of North America, 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. The player influences the direction of his colony through his choices in diplomacy, recruitment, and city management. Additional colonists come from Europe, or can result from population increases (after food surpluses exceed a preset level).

Economics and trade come into play when the player makes finished goods and sells them in Europe, or trades with the natives (for other goods or gold). By harvesting natural resources (see table below), skilled craftsmen can convert them into finished goods for sale or trade. Additionally, silver can be mined for direct trade, and ore can be mined to turn into tools (which can also be converted into guns). Skilled craftsmen produce twice as much as regular workers, and specialist buildings can be built to increase overall production as well.

Colonization (1995)



Incompatible with Windows Vista 64-bit SP1.


Compatible with Windows Vista 32-bit SP1.


Colonization is a computer game by Brian Reynolds and Sid Meier released by Microprose in 1994. It is a turn-based strategy game themed on the early European colonization of the New World, starting in 1492 and lasting until 1850. It was originally released for DOS, and later ported to Windows (1995), the Amiga (1995) and Macintosh (1995).

Game Information
Colonization is much like a more developed version of Sid Meier's previous game Civilization (1991) in visual design and handling, but the two have marked differences in gameplay. Instead of forging a nation from nothing, the player manages the cross-Atlantic expansion of an established one in the service of the Crown. As the colonies become more self-sufficient their subservience shifts from boon towards bane, and to win the player must ultimately declare independence and defeat the Royal Expeditionary Force in war.

Alpha Centauri (1999)



Compatible with Windows Vista 64-bit SP1.


Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri (sometimes abbreviated to SMAC or Alpha Centauri) is a 4X turn-based strategic computer game created by Brian Reynolds and Sid Meier under the auspices of Firaxis Games in 1999. It is based on a fictional attempt by human beings to colonize a planet in the Alpha Centauri star system. It picks up where Meier and Reynolds' earlier titles, Civilization I and Civilization II, left off. An expansion pack called Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire (aka SMACX or just SMAX) was also released. Although popular with gamers, the game never reached the heights of success of the Civilization games.

Game Information
Within the game, the player assumes the role of one of the seven faction leaders and attempts to expand their colony and achieve victory. Players engage themselves in a race against the other factions, and are free to adopt any number of strategies in pursuit of their goal. Scientific discoveries within the game determine what technologies are available to particular factions, which in turn determines what facilities and units they can build at their colony bases. Unlike Civilization I and Civilization III, Alpha Centauri allows the player to fully customize units.

Alpha Centauri is open-ended and has multiple, customizable parameters for victory. The player can choose to work toward a victory based on diplomacy, economics, conquest, or transcendence.

Alien Crossfire (1999)



Compatible with Windows Vista 64-bit SP1.


Sid Meier's Alien Crossfire, published in September 1999, is an expansion pack for Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, a turn-based strategic 4X computer game. It was designed by Timothy Train and other members of Firaxis Games. Alien Crossfire features seven new factions (two of which are non-human) and multiple new technologies. The game initially had a single production run. Combined with its highly customizable nature, Alien Crossfire thus became an extremely rare game. The CD itself can fetch over a 100 US on internet auction sites.

The editable nature of the game allows for a large degree of customization and has led to the creation of a number of mods and custom factions which other users can download to expand their gameplay. Several sites have sprung up to support and distribute these files.

EA included both Alpha Centauri and Alien Crossfire in some of its various collections of older computer games. The most common set described itself as a "laptop gamers" collection (it included the newest Tiger Woods game, in a production error).

Game Information
The main storyline element added to the game is the "alien crossfire" itself. The two alien Progenitor factions are locked in a civil war: one side, the Usurpers, wishes to exploit Manifold Six (the Progenitor name for Planet) for military purposes; the other side, the Caretakers, wishes to prevent this and leave the planet alone. Both factions sent ships to Manifold Six to settle the matter once and for all. Unfortunately for them (but probably fortunately for the human factions on Planet), the battle went badly for both sides and they ended up crash-landing on Planet. Lost in the crash are countless alien lives and virtually all of the alien research and technology. Their civil war continues, however, and both factions dream of the day that they can send for reinforcements and crush the other faction.

The Progenitors themselves resemble squid-like aliens, in general a Progenitor has two horns on its "nose" and two horns on each side of its bug-like mouth. The Caretakers have flesh-colored skin and black tentacles growing out of the side of their head, they are portrayed as being moralistic and accuse the Usurpers of destroying neighboring systems. The Usurpers have pale green skin and do not have tentacles growing out of the side of their heads they portray themselves as being liberal their leader states they have the "Courage to question" but it's quite obvious they're doing it out of sheer greed. Progenitor factions have the ability to always target research (human factions, by default, can only choose general research paths.) In addition, the Progenitors have a unique victory condition - by researching up the tech tree, they can eventually build a Resonance Communicator, allowing them to summon the bulk of their forces to Chiron, overwhelming all other factions.

Initially, Progenitors and humans cannot confer with each other - they must research the appropriate technology (Progenitor Psych for human factions, Social Psych for Progenitor factions) to understand how to communicate between the species. Also, Progenitor and human living requirements are radically different - when one species takes over a city of the other species, those residents that survive the conquest are forced out in Colony Pods. Since the two sides belong to different species, they are also able to commit atrocities, such as destroying bases and using nerve gas, against each other without fear of political repercussions. The only exception to this is the use of planet-busters since it affects Planet negatively.
