1) Utterly terrible game. Like, broken-on-release, patched-months-later terrible. Some of the mods help a lot (The Authentic Colonization is very good, and some of the mods that build off it as well), but...not a good game.Nomad said:You mean like the one they made in 2008 [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civilization_IV:_Colonization]?The Gentleman said:This strikes me as a game that could use a modern reboot.
2) Both the original and the remake are pretty socially disgusting. A game based on colonial conquest whitewashing to the degree that both the original and the remake do is really terrible. A game set in the American colonial period that doesn't mention slavery? Unconscionable. ("But but but it'd make people mad"--good. Make them mad. Make them think.)
