User Reviews

  • A simple, but very playable open source remake of the brilliant Sid Meier's Colonization. Many thanks to the developers for continously making it better to play!

  • Odd, I bought Sid Meyers 5 after learning this, and find I like Freecol a lot better. It's still difficult for me, and yes it takes time. Turning off the feature that animates what other nations are doing each turn speeds things up a bit, but as the game goes on and there are more in each nation to animate it still takes a while. Love the game, would like to see continued development. Disappointed to minor extent that the latest (11.06?) version doesn't continue to allow new members of Congress until candidate run out, would love to see some history changers available (earn irrefutable support from Indian tribes by recapturing their land and returning it to them after foreign countries have reduced it? Perhaps establish permanent diplomatic relations with the other countries, including trade routes? I don't know, but should be possibilities ...)

  • it's the best strategy game that i have played. i play it since 2014

  • Always loved the classic Sid Meier's Colonization game, and FreeCol takes it to a whole new level, with a great system for modding, you it's easy to expand the game to try different nations and functionality. Endless hours of fun!

  • When new version Freecol?
