Possibly the greatest game of it's genre,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri Complete (PC) (CD-ROM)
Where do I start...
The underlying narrative and the world itself manages to be familiar yet alien at the same time. The game mechanics are spot-on. The unit design process is brilliant. The factions genuinely play differently. The higher difficulty levels balance challenge with playability, and creates a fantastically addictive "Just One More Turn..." 3am time sink.
The first time you drop a planet buster? Priceless.
So good, I bought it twice (after I lost the original media)
