Civilization for Windows

Microprose 1991
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 6/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

"Civilization" is definitely one of Sid Meier's masterpieces and surely one of the most famous games of all times. The game is far too complex to be reviewed in its entirety. For further explanations look into the very extensive help files and the Civilopedia which come with the game.


Civilization V

2K Games 2010
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

One of the most successful classics goes into its fifth incarnation. Sid Meier’s Civilization has not been matched yet… although there has only been one serious contender so far a couple of years ago – Call to Power. Will this unrivalled game in its fifth incarnation still be able to surprise us above new graphics?


Codename: Iceman

Sierra 1989
Genre: Adventure, Simulation
Rating: 4/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Codename: Iceman is a Sierra game published in 1989. It’s, unlike the Police Quest and Space Quest series for example, a standalone game, following the story of Naval Officer Johnny Westland. Something you could notice about the game is the fact it has got an upgrade if you look at the animations. Just like several other titles that have been published around the same time, Sierra games took a boost in their animations and overall visual aspect of the games.


Colonization

Microprose 1994
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC, Amiga (OCS/ECS)

Once upon a time, Sid Meier along with some other people created really innovative and fresh games. But then Civilization came! Even though it was (is!) a great game, it had one negative effect on the gaming industry: It made Sid Meier & company reusing the basic idea again and again.

System: PC

Crisis in the Kremlin

Spectrum Holobyte 1992
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In 1985, what would happen to the Sowjet Union was anything but clear. In 1992, when this game was released, the largest country ever had already ceased to exist. Mikhail Gorbachev's attempts to reform the state had ultimately failed – even though on a global scale, it had lead to an end of the cold war which had held the world in terror for decades. Though it might all have gone differently. Crisis in the Kremlin puts the player into the shoes of the new head of government in 1985, giving him complete freedom into which direction to lead the country: Will you also try to declare Perestroika (restructuring) and Glasnost (openness)? Will you go even further and pursue the nationalist ideas which, in the actual history, won out? Or will you even try to stabilize the traditional Sowjet system again instead?


Day of the Pharaoh

Chip / Rainbow Arts 1990
Genre: Strategy, Action
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: Atari ST
The pharaoh is dead – long live the pharaoh! If only we knew which one! Well, the player knows it should be him, obviously, being the real descendent of the old, murdered ruler. Unlike those pretenders to the throne. A real pity that this actual prince is stuck in some low social caste, unknown to the general public. So he needs to fight his way back up the social ladder to regain his rightful position.

Dictator

DKTronics 1983
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: C64

Since we were still talking about Saddam_Hussein_the_bad_dictator & George_Bush_the_good_pacifist & The_war_in_the_name_of_peace and all that, why don't we put up here a dictator sim. Yup, and a pretty darn addictive one.


Die Fugger 2

Sunflowers 1996
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Money and political power are often closely related. The family referenced in the title is one of the best known historical examples of this phenomenon. The members of that family don't actually appear in the game, though. It takes place a few levels below that instead. On a regional level, i.e. a member state of the former 'Holy Roman Empire', the player tries to gain political influence - just like the big idols.
