  • “A great distillation of the Railway Tycoon concept. It’s very addictive.” – Total PC Gaming 8/10
  • “Why is it such fun? It’s to do with the immediacy of feedback, and the simple, almost toy-like feel of building your tracks. Creating your first railway is simply a matter of clicking from a section of previously laid track and its end-point. The game will automatically fill in the rest: raising bridges over valleys and rivers, or making cuttings and tunnels through mountains or hills.” – PC Gamer
  • “What you first think is a jolly little model railroad simulator is revealed to be something much more vicious. It’s a financial free-for-all. Like no other business game, this emphasises competition.” – PC Gamer

Despite what it looks like on the box, Sid Meier’s Sim Golf isn’t the latest game to attempt to faithfully recreate the sport of golf. Instead, the idea this time is to build and manage your own golf course, designing your own holes and attempting to attract the major tournaments in the process.

Taking its lead from the simple interface of games such as Theme Park, Sid Meier’s Sim Golf is very easy to get to grips with, courtesy of intuitive controls and a helpful tutorial mode. You can choose to set your golf club up in one of 16 locations across the globe, and thanks to an inheritance from your late Uncle, you’ve got limited funding to help you get things going. Naturally enough, you’ll start small, building up and expanding as you get more successful, and it’ll take some time until you can finish building the 18th, at which point you can try and attract tournaments whilst constructing a new course elsewhere in the world.

Admittedly, the premise may not initially generate excitement, but credit where credit’s due, for this is a challenging, enjoyable strategy game that never leaves you bewildered, yet still presents quite a job to start generating profit. The lack of an overall objective beyond that won’t endear it to those who like a predefined goal to achieve, and the laid-back gameplay style may similarly leave some players cold. Yet there are so many intricate little challenges to the game, particularly when attempting to construct the best holes you can, that it’s an easy way to lose track of time and relax for a couple of hours. An ideal next step for fans of Tycoon-style games.–Simon Brew

The third instalment in Meier’s signature series offers all the outstanding gameplay featured in the first two games while including new features and refinements that keep the series fresh and engaging.

Civilization III offers 16 playable civilizations and each has its own strengths and bonuses. The game begins in the year 4000 BC when your civilization is nothing more than a primitive tribe, and each turn progresses the game forward in time.

You manage growth, military production, city development, diplomacy, and scientific research as your civilization grows from a single village to several towns to a continent-spanning metropolitan sprawl. The fun is in deciding whether to research writing or the wheel, whether to build a musketeer to take out an encroaching enemy pikeman or direct your city to work on the culturally significant Sistine Chapel.

There are five ways to win the game, ranging from wiping out the other civilizations with military power to defeating them through cultural dominance, which is one of several new victory conditions.

Fans of Meier’s other turn-based games will find the same addictive gameplay present in Civilization III. Building off the gameplay are several new additions, specifically the new cultural rating and the new resource management options. The other big change is that you must collect raw materials in order to build certain units.

For example, oil and rubber are required to build modern units, and if those resources aren’t within your territory, you’ll need to negotiate with other civilizations for them. And because the game’s negotiation process is very deep and involved, you may find yourself cut off from key raw materials if you’re at odds with other civilizations, which, in turn, will weaken you militarily.

There are a few minor issues with the game, most notably with unit imbalances and the tedious endgame, which can drag on forever. These are minor problems, however, and don’t detract from the overall experience. Fans of Sid Meier’s other games, or anyone looking for a fun and challenging gaming experience, owe it to themselves to pick up Civilization III. –P. Meyer

Sid Meier's Pirates (PC) Game Review


Sid Meier’s Pirates (PC) Game Review
Rating: 4
An easy recommend for those who want a game they can make progress in when tight on time or the casual gamer. It’s bright, gorgeous to look at, accessible, has a well suited soundtrack and decent interface and control system – the only downside is that after the first 10 or so hours it may appear to lack some depth. Having said that, for a sandbox game it’s got a good variety of things (even if they aren’t overly complicated) moreso than a lot of other games that claim that label. Overall, good fun without a hint of frustration (always welcome).
