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. I am glad I have it but it is not one of my favorites.
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. But the DS version is lacking even for that. It's fun and the entire Civ Rev game is there but it really needs a graphics overhaul to be made fun...
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. I have only played once or twice because of this and I feel let down.
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. I would recommend this game if you dont mind the poor graphics and just want a portable version of this awesome game.
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: Loved all the games on the PC so thought id check out the ds version. Fun and has a lot of good features but there is quite a bit missing. If youve played the PC version then this is a much watered down version and a lot faster. Still fun but lack of in depth features makes it a little repetative.
Summary: I was a big fan of the PS3 version of the game as well as the PC games so I wanted a portable copy to play on the move. While the gameplay is very similar to the PS3 version, the graphics and feeling of immersion leave much to be desired. I didn't have overly high expectations since the DS doesn't have the same capabilities as the PS3 or a PC, but it does feel as if the game *could* be better.
Summary: I've always loved the PC versions of this game and thought i'd give this a go as i have a DS that normally just collects dust and i thought i'd try to get some use out of it with a game that i love. I think the biggest problem with this game for me, is how quickly you can get through a game. It used to take me months to play all the way though on the PC, on the DS you can complete a whole game in about 3-4 hours.
A Revolutionary version of Civilization hits the DS
8 August 2009
Excerpt: Sid Meier's classic Civilization game is brilliant on the DS. It is quite different though - it doesn't offer you all the same options you get when you play it on the PC (or even Amiga!) but it is still very good. Do give it some time. For those totally unfamiliar with the game, this is a board game style game a little like Risk. You start with an unknown world and a couple of characters and you start building one or two towns.
Pros: Addictive classic strategy game for the DS
Cons: Not quite as many options as even version 2 on the PC
