I always want to try & get into the Sid Meier stuff -- Civilization, Colonization, etc., etc. -- but they always look to complicated for a dope like me. lol But this looks like I can *finally* be able to experience what everyone's always talked about. This looks professionally made & I can't believe that it's *free*! lol A MUST DOWNLOAD.

Without a doubt, the best version of Colonization ever. Wish there was more music, since what's there is great! Animated land tiles (crashing waves, etc) would be nice, too. But overall very true to the original and FREE! Way to go!
