My initial review was just a single star.
Despite my MacBookPro spec far exceeding the game's minimum requirements, the game juddered to a virtual halt after an in-game Save & Reload.
Contacting Aspyr's Help-Desk, they asked for a System Report, and four hours (!) later they provided the solution.
THIS APPLIES TO ALL RECENT Hi-Spec MacBookPros and others having both on-chip AND discrete graphics cards.
Go into your system preferences>energy saver> and turn OFF the option for automatic graphic switching. This will enable only the Nvidia GTX 750 and not the Intel Iris Pro. Once you have turned off automatic graphic switching, relaunch the game.
[If anyone else decides the OSX/Download route, be aware Steam downloads both PC & Mac versions onto your computer. Unhelpfully, they don't clearly label the folders as Windows/Mac, and attempting to open the wrong one first generates an unhelpful error message.]
On to the game - the internet is awash with praise for Civ IV BTS. It's all true.
Steam have stopped supporting OSX Snow Leopard (which is listed on the product listing as compatible for this download) so therefore this download is NOT compatible with Snow Leopard either.
If it had been clearer on the product listing about the download being via Steam, then I would have known the game would be undownloadable because I had already done my research and knew that Steam doesn't maintain a Steam client for Snow Leopard anymore.
Steam's own listing for the product is £5 cheaper anyway!!!
As with all Mainstream Games it attracted the usual Premium price on initial release a few years back. Now some years have past, all the Version releases are available at Bucket Shop prices. If you are one of the few on The Planet who have never played Civilization Series before, go get this Complete edition, its a steal at this price - it represents Games that cost £Hundreds in total when they were first released. The game is as good as ever, the cheap price is because the mainstream Community already have it, if you don't, then run to buy it. A new Player to the Civ Series will download (literally) months, if not a couple of years of evolving game play before you put down the mouse with a WOW feeling.
The great Strength of the Civilisation Series has traditionally been the incredible game play, where you could use your brain, not get satisfaction from mere graphical whizbangs. They dropped the Ball with Civilisation V, and I suspect Sid is livid about it all (don't blame him, the guy cant be everywhere). With Civ V, the Corporate Money Men grabbed control and you can see their grubby fingerprints all over it.Read more ›
