    Firaxis has just released the finalized Colonization Box Cover artwork, exclusively to Civfanatics and Apolyton.

    Why EU version has 12+ years old recommended and US only 10+ y.o. ?

    American kids are born and bred into a culture of gun violence, so it's no big deal over here. :lol:

    Because Colonization is a recognized game property in the states, and not in Europe?

    Yes, and chances are those PCs are not able to run the game to begin with.

    It seems to me like artwork that was 'dumbed down' to make it look fun to people who like action games. In general, I don't like how Firaxis has been trying to dumb down the games, including by making Civ games have fun cartoony graphics. Its not about me wanting some geekish game like Europa Universalis or anything, I think its completely patronizing to the public; I think people have better taste than this, and the people who are attracted to this kind of cover won't play Civilization to begin with.

    Forget the box art. Where is the rumored free download of the original game? I'm cheap and greedy.

    My thought exactly. What's this supposed to be: "D-Day 1492"? The box art for the original game was nice.
