"What's great about Colonization is its modding support; Players will have limitless options for modifying the game to suit their needs. Firaxis will ship the game with modding tools including a map editor using XML and Python. So you'll have all the tools at your fingertips and enjoy messing with the game. Visually, the game looks pretty good…although a bit dated; I think it's time for a next-gen look for the series, one with DX10 visuals and all the trimmings.
Being an expansion pack, Colonization offers quite a lot to the table and will impress fans and newcomers alike with a new interface that's easy to use. It may be getting a bit old and dated now, but it's still a solid game that any strategy fan will love."
