I love Civilization. I bought the original a week after it was out. I spent entire vacations playing it only. I upgraded to Civ 2 and played it even more. I am absolutely adicted to this game.
Then I bought Test of Time.
And I was severely disappointed.
The graphics make the game next to impossible to play. Plains look like deserts, forests are indisinguishable, units are blurry, and so on. The familiar flashing unit it replaced by four yellow lines around the base of a unit, so it takes several moments simply to distinguish which unit you are using. The city interface is more difficult to use, plain and simple. The layout and interface are confusing. The whole game is simply a dark indisinguishable mess, a far cry from the brightly colored, easily distinguished graphics of civilization and civ 2.
This game really does have so much promise conceptually. Its a shame its next to impossible toplay. For those of you who really want the next generation of Civ games, get Activision's Civilization- Call to Power, a game that blows this piece of @#$%^ out of the water any day.

What is this, then? It's a rip-off of a wonderful game; the technology trees make no sense, the graphics are horrible, and it adds nearly nothing to Civilization II in terms of gameplay. In many superficial aspects, the designers tried to make a complete break from Civilization II; however, they tried to do so while making as few changes to the underlying engine as possible. The result is a somewhat muddled mess.
Graphics first. The graphics engine, in fact the entire game engine, is virtually the same as that for Civilization II. This is an engine that was made in 1996; made, essentially, for 640x480 resolution, and it suffers greatly. This isn't helped by the poor quality of the graphics.
The learning curve can be difficult, to say the least. Many of the games have multiple worlds, each with their own separate terrain types, none of whose effects can be easily learned. In Civilization II, the task of remembering which terrain type does what is reasonably simple, since terrain types correspond to terrain in real life: there are mountains, hills, grasslands, plains, rivers, swamps, tundra, deserts, and glaciers. Imagine trying to remember that many terrain types for each of four different worlds, without being able to refer to real life. What sort of effects do you think metallic hydrogen would produce? Without the terrain chart and the technology tree poster, things rapidly become ridiculous.
This was a game made without Sid Meier or Brian Reynolds, and it shows; though there is some promise to the concept, the execution seems to have consisted of taking the buildings, units, and technology of Civ II and scrambling it all up; it's Civilization II with new names for everything.

Hello. My name is Alex, and I'm a Civ addict.
Ever since the late, great Microprose released Sid Meier's Civilization, I have turned on my PC, plopped myself down on my chair and played countless hours...nay, eons....with at least three versions of this very popular and highly addictive "god game."
We all know this game by heart, otherwise we would not be attending CivAnon today. However, I'd like to make a few comments about this Hasbro Interactive version's virtues and vices.
What I like:
1. The new animated graphics. Sure, the old icons were good for their time, but I love watching and hearing my units fight in Animated mode.
2. Multiplayer capabilities were first introduced in one of the two versions I haven't owned (CivNet), and when playing against the computer gets boring, a human adversary is most welcome. The "hot seat" option is the way I've played it, since I am rarely online to play in the MSN Game Zone.
What I hate:
1. I'm not keen on the Fantasy or SF scenarios. Sure, they may be attractive to serious players who like those genres, but I am more fond of the 1996 Microprose version of Civ II and its historical scenarios.
2. Save/Load. This option DOESN'T work. Maybe I got unlucky and got stuck with a bad disc, but whenever I want to save a game and load it for a more time-efficient method of playing, all I get is really lousy graphics...like a corrupted version of the final Civ II release by Microprose but worse. There are lines of code on my screen and everything looks like a beta testing screen. Yuck. So if I play this game, it takes several hours (at best) and in one sitting. This makes everyone -- my girlfriend included -- very, very unhappy.
I still don't own Civ III, so this version will have to be in my library of games till the price comes down.

The graphics are poor at best, they are slightly better than the original Civ. Microprose have tried to improve them and failed. Game play on my very fast system is slow, and not really a lot of improvements to the game. The move from Civ to CivII was great. However this version lets down the gaming series.
After a while you will get use to the poor graphics and play it, but you'll be thinking about Civ II.
