This is a real shame... I own the GoG version, but it's shit and won't play so basically copyright is probably stopping me having a working version of the game. Fuck you GoG!

Figures that some jerkwads would "Buy" the rights to this game and sell it to keep it out of the hands of people who actually bought it when it was new. I wonder if they do actually buy the rights to old games or do they just charge for pirating software.

Sid was cranking out so many "sims" in those days everyone was expecting "Sid Meier's Trash Collecting Sim" or "Sid Meier's Bum On The Streets Sim" any day.

SSSS 2012-10-28 1 point DOS version

Still a great game! Please remake this game MICROPROSE!

Thank you very much for this. :D
Playing this game again is like meeting an old friend.

Collock 2012-04-21 1 point DOS version

Better than the remake done a few years ago as a standalone on the Civ Iv engine to me other than Alpah Centaury this is still the most fund Sid Meier game to replay.

Licurg 2012-04-12 1 point DOS version
