5.0 out of 5 stars THE ALPHA & OMEGA OF Turn-Based Stategy GAMES! Jan. 6 2011
By NeuroSplicer HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In 1999, in the wake of the the huge success of Civilization 2 Sid Meier & Brian Reynolds released a logical sequel: a colonization ship, Unity, is launched from Earth on the path to self-destruction. An inboard malfunction and assassination of the captain divides the colonists into several competing factions. Planetfall is carried out under emergency pods - and clearly not according to the plan. And the fun begins...

The environment on planet Chiron is not very friendly. Not only do ground tiles need to be terraformed before put to use, but the native lifeforms are not terribly friendly either. Of course the real threats will always come not from beasts but from fellow humans. From technophiles and warmongers to religious zealots and Ludditic environmentalists, you will have enough choices to find your favorite faction.

This is one of the best 4x-TBS games ever produced (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit & eXterminate) and no amount of somewhat dated graphics can reduce its gameplay qualities. The tech-tree is rich, the units well designed and the improvements perfectly balanced. This one of those timeless games that prove how bad an idea Limited Installations truly is!

I must have being looking for years to find the expansion to the original game (Alien Crossfire) at a reasonable price. This bargain-priced package includes both - and it is DRM free!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! June 9 2013

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Like a previous reviewer, it took me years to track down a copy of Alien Crossfire. I always enjoyed Alpha Centauri, but the elusive expansion pack had me stymied. Delivery was on time and the game has a new dynamic to it. Very enjoyable. Can't beat the price!

1.0 out of 5 stars Great game, with a lazy re-release... Feb. 27 2014
This game is legendary so my review is not on the game but the pathetic attempt at a re-release, easily displayed by the fact that the game is still separated into two cds when the minimal amount of data could go on one. The game doesn't work on Windows 7 despite hours of trying different methods(I'm able to get my friends original copy to work however so this is solely SoldOut Games issue). It strikes me as strange that they would shaft the current version of windows without at the very least state that it doesn't work thus saving me money by buying a game I can't play. If you don't have windows 7 should be fine but if you do try and find an original release copy of the game...
