The New New World - Civ 4: Colonization Reviewed

My write-up of the official remake of one of my all-time favourite strategy games is in the current issue of PC Gamer UK, and now also on the magic internet. While a solid and largely faithful remake, the game wasn't quite what I was hoping it would be, so I'm expecting outraged folk to shout at me and email a death threat or two because I didn't score it 98% any day now.

Here's a quote for the road:

Life is good to old Kingy. He's fine whether or not he gets my money, and there's not a damned thing I can do about it. He's the bully at school you can't touch because he's the headmaster's son, the seedy politician who never quite gets thrown out of office because his wife is friends with the Prime Minister's wife. He's unstoppable.
