Inside Mac Games (IMG) (May 18, 2010)
If you like strategy games or management games, Colonization will fill your needs. However, it is not for casual play. It requires a lot of effort to get into and through this game, even for veteran gamers. Depending on who you are, this is either a major detriment or bonus.

Ist Colonization bei all der Kritik denn überhaupt noch empfehlenswert? Auf jeden Fall! Denn irgendwie verzeiht man solchen Spielen solche Macken eher, als dies beispielsweise bei Shootern der Fall ist. Denn wie so oft schafft es auch Colonization die 300 Runden bis zum Unabhängigkeitskrieg wie im Fluge vergehen zu lassen und am Ende erneut den Entdeckergeist zu wecken. „Vielleicht versuche ich es noch einmal und mache dabei die Indianer einfach platt.“ Das funktioniert zumindest bei absoluten Genrefans perfekt. Gelegenheitstaktiker hingegen, welche Civilization IV bereits im Schrank haben, können auch gut ohne Colonization leben.

With its shallow gameplay and narrow focus, this game reminded me of a piece of educational software I played in middle school in which the goal was to teach you about the American Revolution. Except for Colonization’s improved graphics, they could be sisters. Managing trade can be an interesting aspect of game play—in fact, I wish trade was more of a factor in the main Civ game—but here it’s reduced to such a simplistic level that is never interesting. Pretty deadly, as that’s the main focus of the game. Considering how far simulations have come in the last two decades, Colonization comes off more like a mini-game in the scheme of something much grander.
