    Here comes the next installment of the Civiliation franchise, this time with a whole lot less bongo, bongo, bongo.

    Is there any particular reason why this isn't called Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri 2? :unsure:

    This is erring dangerously close to "Civilisation: Hippie edition" for my liking. I am sure it will see me lose several hundred hours should I bother to play it but I am still not impressed.

    If that was the case, there would've been 100% more "IDS HABBEDING" in the title.

    I think I'll pass on this one. As award-winning as they may be, I just can't get into turn-based strategy games. As soon as there's anything possibly hostile on the map, all my efforts go into crushing it (my diplomacy goes as far as "surrender unconditionally") and if I forget to squeeze even ONE LITTLE THING out of every turn, it feels like a total failure.

    Perhaps if this actually WAS a sim city kind of game series... :unsure:

    sounds boring to me to get into this game, take control again, make the steps and turn next round, was pretty hard to get go moving and reveal the things, for a gamer.. what can be so realist if it's future having some game new to play, well, maybe there's some interesting news about it what game aspects might be to work, should be easy as the same like fill puzzle pieces with colours perhaps. i don't think i 'll make it far playing it, and don't plan to find a clan to go do much with it. the technoligy and architecture just don't impress me and i would'nt spend much slavery time of this factory product through out the serie, yuck disgusting:/ too many games played to really like it, more of it, whats'it gonna be like a simple board game or lose your mind of everything on display of all clues that the particles might give? Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri 2? it had a great lib. sure if you look at it that way, but well i think it just feels to get sucks again, don't wanna imagine myself alone spacing with it there out digging and placing the stuffs for a new hope

    I am already sold ...

    Love Civilization and having always exactly the same game remade with better graphic and slight enhancements gets boring even though I would still play it XD
    I always liked the expansion to the space in Call to Power the most ^^

    Yes there is, Electronic Arts owns the rights to the Alpha Centauri name, so Firaxis can't use it.

    So when you win the space race in Civilization games, this is what happens afterwards, methinks.

    I recall a few scenarios over the various games that start with that very scenario -- they played much the same but winning the space race was now not an option.

    late as USUAL we've all been discussing this for 2 days now over at civfanatics! :lol: IMO it juts looks like a mod of civ5.

    it plays exactly the same as civ 5 except your on an alien planet.

    Oooooh yes! Firaxis trying their hands on sci-fi again!
    I was hoping this would happen!
    I would've like to see some gameplay though, but I guess thats still to come :sleep:
