5.0 out of 5 stars Steam is grand, July 5, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 2K Mega Pack [Download] (Software Download)
I bought this pack to upgrade my ordinary Civ 5 game, into the the Civ 5 GOTY edition. I had bought Civ 5 last year for half price. Civ 5 GOTY comes with enough DLC (overpriced IMHO) to pay for the 40 dollar price tag alone. Steam did not redownload the game for me, but rather took me on a 40 second downloading trip to nab the DLC to make up the filesize difference between Civ 5 and Civ 5 GOTY. Steam also added hot seat multiplayer and an increased difficulty patch to Civ 5.

I was impressed to see that all of Civ 4's expansions are included, as well.

There are two ways of downloading these games. One is by clicking the download button from the Amazon Games and Downloads Library. This will open a window to install the game without DRM (digital rights management.) (Thanks Amazon for listening to your customers!) The other method is to click the "add game" button on the bottom left of the Steam Library window, using the popular downloadable program called Steam. After agreeing on the Steam Subscriber agreement, Steam will ask for the product code. Copying and pasting the code listed in your Amazon Games and Downloads Library into the steam window will activate the game on the Steam network.

Games that are labeled with the words "game code" at the end of the title are all eligible for Steam Activation. Games that are labeled with "game download" may or may not be "Steam-powered" games. Civ Rome is not a Steam-powered game, but all the others are.
