Title: Call to Power II
Release Date: 20 Oct, 2000
Why no Call to Power. CtP2 sucks. :-(. Game does not work. It gives black screen with no video and just voice playing and it is not reacting to anything. I requested a refund.. Bought game worked for awhile, then stopped. Waste of money.. This game came out in 2000. I've played it in 2017. This is the best civilization\/4X game I've ever played, even after so many years. I just don't know how to describe it, it has this weird magic that drew me in and enslaved me, cannot even stop thinking about this game when I'm not playing.. I played this game many, many years ago and was stoked to find it on steam. Now, if I could only get it to work. ;(. Got it to launch, seen the intro video, but then the main menu was just a black screen could hear the music and what not, even with changing it to XP service pack 3 and run as admin still the same black main menu screen, had to give up and ask for a refund, really wanted to try it because I loved the first one, "Civilization: Call to Power" if only someone could remake these games so they are compatable with newer OS's and updated graphics because I don't think people use anything below 1080p now days, just a bunch of boxes on the screen if I had got it to work. So having not played it at all I can not recommend this game with a yes or no, just that it may not work unless you use an outdated OS or know how to fix the issues.
P.S. Making me pick yes or no, so no for that fact that I could not play it, but I would like to if a fix comes along.. The Steam version is the GOG version. I know this because there is file named GOG, and the GOG forums report all of the same problems. It runs the same as the disc version except the music is no longer on a disc in CD track format, but in a folder as OGG files. Therefore the music will not work in game. An external player is required. The original disc would even work in a CD player, for example you could play the music in a car. The music is an original orchestral soundtrack, and it is quite good but short, because of limited space on a 700 MB CD.
Music aside, the Steam and the disc versions work perfectly fine on Windows 10 and 125 hz polling rate for me. I had problems with lag and crashes at any other polling rate with both Razer and Steelseries mice. I've also played the game on Windows XP and older and the polling rate was not an issue there.
Call to Power 2 is the second and final Civilization competitor (clone) made by a very different Activision than the one that merged with Blizzard. In fact this very game almost bankrupted Activision, and it shows. The game was released content unfinished, it is very buggy for its time, support was quickly dropped, and the development team was dissolved. However, some developers on their own time helped the Apolyton community try to understand and modify the promising game. A long time after, and yet a long time ago, a much healthier Activision released the source code, but as it was stripped of all comments, perhaps the full potential of the game has never been realized. Nonetheless it allowed hard coded bugs to be fixed, the benefits of which can be found in the Apolyton Edition, which maintains the game content as released, with UI improvements. Since the source code was released so late, and then so much time was required to put it to use, many high quality mods never saw the benefit of these finishing touches.
Gameplay is actually very different from the Civilization games. Compared, Call to Power 2 is far more streamlined with constant and smooth progression through the ages. Without worker units, gameplay is macromanagement compared to Firaxis' micromanagement. The tech tree and in-game guide called the "Great Library" is where this game really shines. It is much more mature and realistic than the later Civilization games.
