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.

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...

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.

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 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.

Running 10.5.5 on a 2.4GHz MBP. Clean install of Civ IV crashes on launch even with 1.74 patch.

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!

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. Jan 6, 2008

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.

Reviews I've read on the Web state that people have had no problems running this game on the MacBook. When I download the 1.61 v11864 version I get complete graphics corruption in-game. I've turned all the graphics to their lowest settings, and to medium settings with no luck. Can any MacBook owners get this demo to work? Me: MacBook OS 10.4.7 2 GB RAM 2 GHz CoreDuo

Even with the patch, this game brings my G5 (1.8GHz single) to its knees. Don't try this game unless you have a lot of patience.

Had high hopes for this update but the sound issues are still there along with a some new strange clicking sounds. Game still runs slowly on dual processor G5 with RAM to spare.
