I normally don’t add the publishers pitch to my reviews because usually they are overblown statements that end up disappointing. However this pitch is pretty accurate, apart from one subject. I will go into it in a bit.
Sid Meier has been heralded as “the father of computer gaming”. Developing games since the early 1980′s, Sid Meier is best known for his work on the turn-based strategy simulation of epic proportions: Civilization. Other works include Pirates!, Railroad Tycoon, and my personal favourite, Alpha Centauri.
