Discover the New World and fulfill your Manifest Destiny!
The New World lies before you with all its peril, promise, and infinite possibility: your colonists anxiously follow you to shore and the treasures of an entire continent await you. But beware of your enemies! Angry natives and rival powers can encroach upon your territory. You'll have to overcome your foes with superior military strategy and wily diplomacy. Only then can you launch your revolution and declare your independence.
Players control either English, French, Dutch, or Spanish colonists in the New World. This New World can be the historically accurate Americas (North and South) or a randomly generated world with varying resources and challenges. Overseeing economic, military, and political growth, you strive to establish independence from the mother country while competing with other colonies for control of the New World.
Plant a foothold in the New World and establish your independence in Sid Meier’s Colonization!

Colonization is a great game: requiring stealth of thought, micromanagement, and the ability to think several moves ahead before acting.
Difficult to start with, even more difficult to master, but so, so satisfying when you get it right, and start getting your colonies self-sufficient and edge ever closer to revolution.
Woo-hoo! Got all the way through without mentioning Civilization. *DOH*.

While the graphics on this game may be dated, as one would expect of many GOG games, the game mechanics behind those graphics is not at all dated. This is a very solid game that can easily satisfy you night after night. Value for money, at the price GOG has this game now, you would be hard pressed to find better.
I spent months with this game when it was first released. I haveread more gone back to it on a few occasions over the years to re-experience it. If you have not yet experienced it, and you are the sort who enjoys deep strategy games, by all means buy this game.
