Alpha Centauri still surpasses all other Civ-type games.

Agreed, I can still spend hours and hours on this game trying to play different ways, although I always seem to try and get air power as soon as possible for exploration and protection, that and random personalitys for faction leaders so they aren't so predictable.

The best game of its type. If there were a HOF. This game should be inducted.

I think it would be great if somebody remade this game, with 2011 technology. Nice 3d models, seamless terrain, etc would make this game even better than it already is even though its out of date!

That and perhaps a worked over upgrade system for the units you produce. It could get a bit tiresome in the end constantly changing the design of your units because you researched ONE new component :)

Indeed. The game was amazing, but not flawless and a remake with some improvements would be awesome. :)

Yes... and axe the dependency on hotkeys. If there's one thing that Civ 5 did right, it was UI.
