Summary: It is Civ for the DS. Except the maps are 1 civ and you. you get one city. It is super limited and very short. I have been a fan of the franchise forever but this was not worth my time to play. I bought it for along road trip and waiting in lines for the ferry.
Summary: A game with potential but falls short where it counts. The game looks gorgeous, sounds great, and the menus and interface are structured very well. The Civilopedia and Tech Planner are well constructed and intuitive and reports and database resources are plentiful.
Summary: I love the Civ franchise games and have been avidly playing it since Civ II. Civilization revolutions is actually a fun iteration of the game - I have it for the XBox. It lacks a lot of the depth of the game proper but that is to be expected since there is a more limited set of input options for it.
Summary: My son got this for his DS, and while it wasn't a bad game, we already have it for the PS3 and it only took him two days before he wanted to sell it and play the PS3 version. Not a bad game, but only a semi-decent version.

Summary: This game has the potential for a lot of fun except for the fact that after a set amount of time the game ends no matter where your at in it. I really wish there was a way to play the game for as long as I want with out have to start over again.
Summary: This is a good DS version of the Civilization series. It has pretty much all the things that make these games fun. And although I was not expecting mind blowing graphics, they are still a bit dissapointing and I think the developers could have make a better job.
Summary: As expected this is a nice condensed version of one the longest running strategy games the PC world has seen. It is fun and engaging but the Diplomatic aspect of Civ that some may enjoy is not quite as robust in this but it is a nice diversion and an enjoyable fun for a short time.
Summary: I ended up downloading the demo for the Xbox 360 and ended up turning it off after about 30 minutes. While I've played Civilization II through IV on the PC, the game felt too different, harder to control (when you're used to the NumPad, it's hard to switch to the thumbstick) and the city building...
