    Crackers Don't Matter

    Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth

    Crackers Don't Matter

    Although I messed up my name here a long time ago on Gamespot, that does not necessarily mean that Beyond Earth is the same as Civ V (and it is not on the same ol' Earth) or that is that much worse than Alpha Centauri (p... Read Full Review

    The old game is a fantastic piece of gaming goodness, the new one not so great.

    XCOM: Enemy Unknown

    The old game is a fantastic piece of gaming goodness, the new one not so great.

    Now, don't get me wrong, for it is not the original game that came out by the Gollop Brothers back in the year 1994, but still it retains a sense of why computer games are written, although I wonder how they think nowada... Read Full Review

    Where is the I-Max computer theater monitor to play the game with, so I can spin around and around?

    Sins of a Solar Empire

    Where is the I-Max computer theater monitor to play the game with, so I can spin around and around?

    But really, I think it just is not as incremental as a true turn-based strategy game. That said, I think it is an evolutionary type of game, mainly since I still usually play turn-based games. I have my doubts if my comp... Read Full Review

    Lost Empire: Immortals

    A little trouble getting the game to start but a check on the forum at Paradox took care of the problem.

    After getting the game to start, I had no problems running the game. Run the 'setup.exe' program on the CD if you do. There are some required support files (programs) to put on your computer first, and I think just to ma... Read Full Review

    This game can be modded, and I am sure that it will be.

    Sid Meier's Civilization IV: Colonization

    This game can be modded, and I am sure that it will be.

    I think right now, that playing the game more will reveal more ways to better play the game. Myself I would take the turn rate and make it twice as long, right now. A few experts are going to have to come out of training... Read Full Review

    Mars is a bleak desolete planet that looks the same. Making a home there will not be easy.

    Okay finally got the game after the first disks were made wrong and told to take it back to the store. Yes, I know there is on-line gaming stores but here I am on Mars. You have to wear spacesuits and they are not well s... Read Full Review

    MOO3 is an spacealien artifact. First it was beamed into the head of the developer, forgotten, mixed-up, and finished.

    Okay, first get the 2CD version of the game so the patch 1.25 can be installed. Next get the Install Checker and check the game. Then go over to http://www.moo3.at/ and get a game play MOD that fixes the game or visit th... Read Full Review

    X-COM Apocalypse, and whoever is left. First there was the land, then the sea, now just a city. Great Game!

    X-COM Apocalypse is my favorite because although just a city, that is all that is left. it is one of the only games that still runs with faster computers better even though I only play the turn-based battles. First you g... Read Full Review

    There is just no place to be like good ol' Planet Earth, well maybe. Soon, you are leaving the vicinity of Planet Earth on that spaceship just to escape Planet Earth. You make it to Alpha Centauri, but along the way the ... Read Full Review

    When the old computer did not work with the ms-dos version, to the rescue -- the Collector's Edition.

    I bought the original game for ms-dos when it came out, and well, back then, differences in computers may make a game work or not. Later on I did get a old computer that worked better, than crash, crash, crash, back t... Read Full Review
