Hieno peli!

Mielettömän koukuttava peli, suosittelen kaikille strategiapeleistä pitäville!

Ainut ongelma on ollut satunnaisesti rakeutuva ruutu. Vika kuitenkin poistuu aina pelin uudelleenkäynnistämisellä.


Toimii Airilla, mutta ei toimi Macbook prolla vaan väittää että ""Civilization IV" is damaged and can't be opened. Delete "Civilization IV" and download it again from the App Store.""

Sama "korruptoinut" paketti kuitenkin toimii Airilla… joten jotain mätää on.


I'm torn how to rate this. I've tried installing it time and time again on my Macbook Air, but all I get is a message that this game is damaged, should be moved into the trash and reinstalled. I've tried that several times, but to no avail. The Colonization game behaves in the same manner. Both are old favourites of mine and I was looking forward to playing them on my notbook.

I installed the same games from the same App Store installation on my desktop Mac Pro and they start fine and seem to work. I don't like how the game "hijacks" the cursor when played windowed.

As I cannot play the game at all on my notbook, I cannot give a higher rating.
