Boney earns reprieve – Crown of Glory patched

August 9th, 2005 by Troy Goodfellow · No Comments · Uncategorized

Crown of Glory (reviewed here a few days ago) has been patched. You can get the patch from the downloads section of the game info on Matrix Games’s site. The patch description is not especially helpful (lots of general errors are mentioned) and there is a reference to an “occasional PBEM save issue” but nothing else related to the MP game.

That said, I will certainly try Crown of Glory again. As I mentioned in the review, this is a game targeted at me. As disappointed as I was in the execution, I am going to give it a lot of time before the inevitable uninstall – inevitable not because it is bad, but because there is too little room on my hard drive.

One of the great virtues of blogging is that I can update my review if necessary. My discussion of Paradox’s beta patching process served as a mini-review revisiting my original perception of the game. In print, reviewing games after every major patch would waste of time and space, not to mention readers’ patience. Even online, reviews are rarely re-examined in light of new material.

Of course, I won’t do this for every game and every patch. (Another great virtue of blogging is that no one can tell me what to write). But I will give Crown of Glory another serious play session once my schedule allows.
