This disc is a godsend for fans of Avalon Hill's board game Advanced Civilization who have a difficult time convincing 5 to 8 friends to spend all day playing a game. The advanced artificial intelligence is remarkably good, and will challenge even an experienced player, especially one who chooses a difficult starting position. The interface is serviceable, but inexplicably does not accept keyboard commands. After a while having to click for every action gets pretty tedious. And the soundtrack, while not offensive, is pretty forgettable. However, these warts are offset by the chance to play a full 8-player version of one of the best games of the past 20 years at your leisure. Plus, the system keeps track of scores on a running basis, thus relieving you of the bookkeeping that can creep into the final stages of the board game. Well worth buying for Advanced Civilization junkies.
This is a faithful adaption of the classic Avalon Hill board game. This is a game of trade and empire building. Warfare takes a backseat in this one. One negative aspect is the lack of keyboard shortcuts, so be prepared for a lot of clicking!
Despite that, it's an enjoyable strategy game with the AI giving any human opponent a run for his 'goods'!
