"...Designed by the mighty Sid Meier, Alpha Centauri picks up where the original Civilization left off. In the original game, one way to win was to be the first to attain space flight and colonize the Alpha Centauri system.

"In the game of the same name, you begin by landing on a planet in the Alpha Centauri system, so the game has a serious science fiction edge to it. This may turn some people off, which is understandable, since science fiction isn't everyone's cup of leafy beverage."

"One thing I should point out is this game is not just a port of Alpha Centauri, but also a port of the expansion pack, Alien Crossfire. If you've never played the game before, I highly recommend you get used to playing Alpha Centauri before you try the expansion pack."
