    I am a civ veteran and I just picked this game up. I do have to say it rocks. I've been reading the complaints on this forum about this game. All i have to say is HUH:confused:?

    There isn't a perfect game out there so stop nit picking at the poor things about this game. It is so much freaking fun!

    Just making a huge colony and managing the economy is enough for me to have oodles of fun! 3 chears for this game! :goodjob: :goodjob: :goodjob:

    What did he spam?

    I like the game a lot, too. Only differnce is, I had to tweak many hundreds of things in the XML files before I DID like it alot.

    Stll miss the old "Alarm" system with the Indian villages, though...

    The complaints come from those who expect better from Sid. Those of us who played the original Colonization are appalled at how bad this new version is in comparison. A good balance patch will fix a lot of issues but even then it won't be as good as the original game from 1994 imho.

    He's got 4 posts. How much could he have possibly spammed? :confused:

    Maybe at the time obsolete posted he created numerous 'love' threads that have been deleted by the Admins since then?

    Wouldn't that still count in his post total? At the time he posted it was actually his first post in this forum.

    Perhaps I can shed some light.

    It was my 1st post. He was upset at something and judged me harshly.

    Nit picking? This game is so broken, probably one of the worst games I ever played. Nothing makes any sense. Too bad that economy has nothing to do with "winning" the game, you don't any need economy at all...

    I know. I like the game too. I just got it Wednesday and have played it ever since. The only thing I wished was that the time frame was longer. It's only based over a few centuries so it's not as long. But, the way you play the game is wonderful! It's probably the game that you have to watch over the most out of the entire series. :)

    And, she was not spamming. The smilies just show her emotion towards the game. If she continued to smile, that would be smile spam which is 5 smiles and above. Just to let you know.

    This game is less complex than the Charlemagne expansion that came with BTS. It offers less gameplay alternatives and is briefer with a cheaper feel.

    Yet it cost £20.

    Some people just do not know when they have been had like sandwiches.

    Good grief. :confused:

    I've been a member here since 2002. And you can clearly see that I'm not a spammer. But I felt compelled to reply to this one.

    Why can't a guy have a positive comment for the game. As a long time Civ player, I like this game. And I like it for the economics and building up the cities.

    Yea, you don't need to, but you play the game the way you want to play the game. Out of maybe 30 starts I have only finished one game so far. That's because I'm trying to get a perfect economy going. That's the way "I" play.

    If I want to rush build and destroy an Army, I'll play Age of Empires.

    It's a good game, with, IMO some minor issues.....Big Deal.....
