You must all be young pups then! I got it for my first computer, a 386 when I was 12!
Goodness! I had no idea so many Civ "fans" hadn't played Colonization. It was a GREAT game. I can't wait to make my Master Sugar Planter and Rum Distiller economies again.
Having read more about the original Colonization i now know why i never heard about it, i was still in the military and spent more time drinking, roleplaying and chasing the girls than anything else. At least it wasn't down to an age related memory lapse
I have it right now, if you look hard enough you can find it for free online (although I had the original game back in the mid-90s, I got it when I was in 6th grade).
I have never played it, I did play Civ I & III only a few times, Civ II & IV I played a lot
It was before my time. I got my first computer in 1997, and started playing Civ2 (and HoMM2) that same year.
I played it and loved it. You have a treat awaiting you, if, as seems clear, they have done away with some clunky features in the original game.
I still play the original "Colonization from time to time, despite the clunkiness. By the way, I do hope they keep at least some of the original music.
I have played FreeCol.
Colo was one of my favourite games its time and i played it for hours.
I really love to see a new version of it and i hope it will be as great as the old one was when it came out. I'm sure it's more than a civ4 mod only.
I'm just waiting for the next version of Alpha Centauri & Crossfire, which were also fantasic games with an awesome depth, theres a civ4 mod for it (Planetfall) but afaik it's not finished yet and can't reach SMAC at this time.
I've played it quite a lot, a long time ago....
I never played it. I wasn't even aware of it at the time.
I am looking forward to owning and playing it now.
I didn't get in to Civ until Civ II was out, so this will be a new experience for me.
I've played it. A great game, though marred by micromanagement.
OK I am feeling old now, but this re-release has gotten me excited again for this game. I remeber playing Civ 1 when it first came out and Colonization was a great extension of the "just one more turn" from Sid. Just to let you know how much fun it is I still play it on an old DOS based machine I have. Some of the best games ever made are the older ones Railroad tycoon, Master of Orion, and of course Civ and Colonization. I just hope it is as good or close to the original. Then perhaps I can retire my DOS machine and get rid of those damn 5 1/4 discs.
i have played it but that was ages ago)
but still prefer civ.
gah now I really feel old. I can remember playing Colonization and Civ 1 and Simcity 1 and Railroad Tycoon for days when I was younger
Well i don't think i have, i remember years ago playing some game about colonizing the new world but i don't think it was it. I am excited about this though.
Nah we were the pioneers. Can't believe how few people in here played this... Would have expected that there would be a lot more.
You not alone though, I also played all those games on my old old machines. Must be on my 2nd or 4rd pc or so. First "computer" had no HD a oh so tiny memory, 5,25 discs and a tiny black and green monitor. Also it cost way more then a grade A gaming machine does now That was only 22 years back or so... what were you guys doing?
Maybe you played: Conquest of the New World? http://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/conquest-of-the-new-world-deluxe-edition Was a decent game, but not nearly as good as Colonization though imo.
I remember reading reviews of Civ1 and Colonisation, but was extremely underwhelmed. I was big into Dune 2 at the time and thought it was the game to end all games, why take a step backwards into turnbased?
Eventually a friend prevailed on me to try Civ2 and i've never been longer than a month or so without some form of civ ever since.
That I played, enjoyed it lot at the time, I liked the combat especially.
