I am downloading to see if compatible with Lion.
This is not a review, but I should comment that the 73mb referred to above is a bit shy of the actual demo download of 461 mb.

and it would be nice if the Special Instructions for purchased downloads were more clear regarding the _two_ Civ IV downloads along with the expansion packs

This game rocks, but Aspsyr support is innexistant. I had to contact twice MacUpdate Support for a non-working CD-key. Aspsyr did not even reply to MacUpdate Support, I was in cc: of their email.

When I reinstalled the game, after I downgraded back to Snow Leopard(since Lion is a piece os crap), my CD-key was invalid. It looks like you can only install it once, and then the CD-key does not work anymore. This is the kind of DRM that makes you go the pirates way...

The Support button to contact Aspsyr support redirect you to a blank 404 error page also. The game is good, but the publisher of the Mac version is crap. I bought it on Windows and have been playing ever since via BootCamp.

Funny thing, there's no activation or CD-Key for the Windows version...

I had the same problem, and contacted Aspyr regarding this back in July last year. They were prompt in their responses and, when I had exhausted all their troubleshooting measures, they sent me out the full Civ4: Gold DVD free of charge. Sorry to hear your experience wasn't as satisfying.
FYI: on the down side, the DVD they sent me has SecuROM DRM that requires the disc always be in the drive, which isn't great for portability, or for playing Civ4 on my new optical drive-less Mac mini. Swings and roundabouts, I guess. A third-party no CD patch is available that swings things back in the legitimate purchaser's favour, however :)

In general it works well. I have not seen any crashes.

But after some time (usual several hours) the graphics seems to get mixed up. Saving the game, stopping and starting the application again is a workaround that always works.

I have been playing Civilization since the original version was released for the Amiga in the early 90's. This is without a doubt the most established and creative franchise for strategy simulation games for the PC. Civ 4 was a bit of a learning curve for me, it offered complexities that were far more challenging than any of the previous versions. Those complexities and improvements kept the game fresh and insanely addictive for almost 4 years. I still play this, my sad MacBook Pro won't cut it for the newest version Civ5. But I am not complaining, this game still reveals new tricks, advancements and challenges for me. Be careful, this game will become insanely addictive once you master how to engage in combat.

According to Aspyr, Quicktime 7.6 broke the Civ App. If you want the replacement app, download it here: http://support.aspyr.com/index.php?x=&mod_id=2&root=239target=&id=599

I've played now for several hours and no problems.

Cheers.

Was stoked to see this, thinking it meant a patch, as my 1.74 crashes too much! But cannot find a patch just a monster demo. Doh!

There's a typo in the link on the page for the 1.74 patch download; they misspelled a word as 'patcches'. Delete the extra 'c', or just download it from: http://downloads2.macgamefiles.com/files/aspyr/patches/Civ4_1.74.dmg

Graphics fail to work properly on my Mac Pro (dual 2.66 w/ NVIDIA 7300GT). I tried all the different graphics settings in the game, yet there isn't any background showing up during game play. In other words, the characters appear to be standing in space--nothing but black.

Once you download the .dmg file, double-click it to mount the drive on the desktop. Open the drive and you should get a window with the installer file. Drag this installer file to where the game is installed and THEN run the installer. You will still get an error and need to click OTHER to locate the file, but this time it should recognize the game file and you should be able to click on it. Then the patch should should install and work without any problems.

Purchased in the MacUpdate spring 2011 Promo bundle.
The serial provided isn't working for me.
"You have entered an invalid serial number."

Did anyone have any luck with this?

I have two new Mac Macbook Pro and Imac running 10.4.11

I had this game using native resolution and it kept crashing on both computers.

I reinstalled the game at the root level and not in the applications folder. I dropped the resolution to 1024x768. I installed both patches after the game and the expansion pack was installed.I left auto save on just in case it crashed again. I turned off the opening movie in the ini file.

I am now playing the game and it has not crashed. Aspyr tech support was totally useless. The game needs some more revisions to allow it to run in native resolution.
