"For all Linux gamers with a few hundred spare hours on
their hands, Loki's port of Alpha Centauri has arrived just in
time. And, as a bonus, Loki has fixed some bugs still present in
the game's Windows version."
"Life on a brand new planet isn't what you expected it to be.
Humanity may have avoided Earth's destruction, but when the
Starship Unity arrives in the Alpha Centauri system after millennia
of human civilization on Earth, we bring our politics along so we
can squabble over land, resources, and ideologies on a new planet
(simply called Planet). This is the setting of the classic game
Civilization's official sequel, Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri (SMAC),
brought to the Linux community by powerhouse Loki Software."
"Sid Meier brings the familiar elements of Civilization
(published for Windows by Firaxis Games) to a new level in the
sequel. The familiar turn-by-turn strategy game in which you
transform a simple civilization of farmers into one of spacefaring
adventurers is still present. However, there are totally new
scientific advances, technologies, and secret projects that fit
nicely into the new story line."
"Loki's port of Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri Planetary Pack
includes both the original Alpha Centauri game and the special
Alien Crossfire scenario addition. Unlike many other games'
scenario option packs, which focus very little on plot and simply
change unit types or add new factions, Alien Crossfire actually has
a believable plot, as well as new technologies and goals. It does
feel like you're getting two games in one package."
