Totally Awesome Game=playing for 10 hours straight
I've been playing this game for 10 hours straight. What is it about Sid Meier's games that are so captivating? So much so I reinstalled Railroads and loaded up my old savegames from 2010. Ace Patrol is pretty worth it for the price.

10 consecutive hrs does not make a great game. I love Civ games but you need to play a few more thousand hrs before you start reviewing games.

Dude lighten up. It's obvious he enjoys the game if he played it for 10 hours, and no where did he state that this is a review.

And a few more thousand hours? You are out of your mind.

As far as the OP goes, yeah it's a delightful little game. Easy to play and very engaging. I love Sid Meier's light wargames like this and his American Civil War games.

Hey thanks for the support! For many Sid Meiers games 10 hours is just the beginning. Couldn't tell you how many combined hours I've spent on games like Pirates etc...

His title states that b/c he played the game for 10 hrs straight it is an awsome game. First of all I am glad that he can play it. I would highly recomend anyone thinking of buying this to hold off till a patch to fix their launch issue. Thousands of hors makes an awsome game. I have been gaming since before your mommy and daddy thought of conciving both of you, and I can easily kill 10-15 consecutive hrs in a bad game. Why cause I bought the damn game. Just ccause you have 10.2 hrs does not mean you should right a review that says this game is awsome cause you were able to keep your hamster spinning longer than 10 min on one thing.

I have 200+ hrs on Civ V alone and love sid games however this game has a low replayablity to it and still feels like I am playing the iOS version of it. Whish I would have spent my $10 on something with more bang for my buck and just played the free version of this on my cell phone.

Lastly, I am glad that Drake is able to make it clear on what you were trying to do cause I was all confused about what you were righting in the first place. Glad he put it all back down on "paper." If someone rights a blurb talking about if they like or dislikean item it is a review.Maybe this will help drake understand your post LT Jeff gives it 5of5 stars because he was able to play it for ten hrs straight.

Sharing an opinion isn't the same thing as a review. I love how you make assumptions about our age too. I'm old enough to remember when Space Invaders was a new thing.

Finally, if you want to be taken more seriously perhaps you should learn2spell.

So you played the iOS version. You see, a casual gamer like yourself who plays games on your phone, you miss the subtleties that real computer gamers achieve when a game is played on a "PC" or Personal Computer.

2nd..
Maybe you should have attended school instead of playing 1000+ hours of gaming. Maybe then you would know how to "WRITE" well and understand what I'm "righting".

I like how you assume everyone else is a 10 year old punk kid. Just because you play against children when you "game", doesn't mean everyone who posts on a PC Gaming forum is a kid. Maybe that's true on the Xbox and Playstation forums you frequent but here the crowd tends to be older.

My original intent was to reach out to other Sid Meier PC game fans and share my opinion.

Game is damn fun, no matter the hours you put it into or how much of a hardcore bad speller you are ;) With the current sale it's cheaper to get the PC version then the free version with all its dlc. It has some bugs and issues, but it's a solid fun game none the less. Quite addicted. Now to just get my kids to sleep so I can play more.

You dont have more than 300 hours on any steam game and yet you've used the recommend feature. I would tell you to eat your words but you've probably already choked on them.

Game is fun.

Reminds me of the era when games were about gameplay and not just an excercise in graphics fidelity.

Plenty of awesome films have provided me with less than two hours of entertainment. Gaming is no different. It's about the experience, not necessarily the number of hours spent on it.

There are plenty of great, critically acclaimed games which are over within 10 hours. That doesn't prohibit these games from being a fantastic and worthwhile experience.

I'm guessing you're just trolling, because surely nobody is enough of a simpleton to type stuff like this without his tongue in his cheek (or his head irremovably wedged up his colon).
