Empire building in your spare time
November 03, 1999

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.

 
 
 
 
 
Very Good Adaptation of the Board game
December 16, 2001

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'!
