Game Review

Civilization II, or simply Civ2, is the second chapter of the most famous turn-based strategy video game ever created: Sid Meier's Civilization.

The game's objective is to "Build an empire to stand the test of time". This second chapter, build natively for Windows, runs perfectly on modern computers.

Note: this game has been tested on Windows 10 and it works. Just launch "civ2.exe" contained in the "Civilization 2" folder. The first time you lauch it, it's possible that you will be asked to install Direct Play. Just confirm and wait until Direct Play it's installed, after that, the game will work.

Oct 2020 update: We just added an additional version that includes videos. Just download the archive and follow the instructions on README.TXT to install the codes required to see the videos.

@svtsnake With the game running, try to insert the CD in the computer and then choose "Pick Music" from the menu of the game.

Awesome, awesome, awesome game. I was going to build a Win7 rig to run this game but could not pull off installing win7 on a m.2 nvme.
Anyways, awesome game. Is there a way I can play music? I have the cd version of the game and can put the music into a folder. Just need to know how to get music playing.

For Mac OS 64bit user (Catalina and later). To play the game you need to use a windows emulator and run the windows version. I'm using PlayOnMac. There's a trick to it. You need to "install" using the civ2.exe file, and it will give you an error message. Before you click on anything else on PlayOnMac, move the entire game folder to the "dosdevices>c/" folder that PlayOnMac created on your user folder when "installing" the civ2.exe file. After this, continue the procedure on PlayOnMac and select the civ2.exe file as a shortcut.

The patch worked for downloading the game but I cant see any of the units on the map. Theyre all literally invisible. How can i fix this?

Works for me on Windows 10 - made my day. It doesn't have all that background music that I loved, but has all the other audio and a nice stroll down memory lane of over a decade ago. I will make a donation, thanks!

I love this game. I miss the advisors short video clips, but otherwise the game works fine. Except that today I realized that, while you can win the game fine and it will give you the ending statistics, no problem; if you lose, that is, if your civilization is wiped out, the lose ending is a cinematic that will never run, so the game hangs. I'm pretty sure this is a problem only because the cinematics are not working, not for advisors, not for wonders built, and now, not for losing the game. If you don't lose, no problem!

I just wanted to say thank you. I loved this game as a kid, and was really disappointed when I realized modern windows couldn't support it. It's awesome of you to share this so others can enjoy it.
