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: I got this game a few days ago I like it alot but it does get boring to a degree.If you ever played the board game risk this is risk into a video game.It is a cool fun strategy game that makes you think.My buddy's wife plays it on xbox360 and is how I got into the game from watching her play it.The game is alot different from 360 in gameplay.I wish they would have put the level of the armies or navy's of enemies you fight against like on 360 as well as seeing you cities...
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 is alright. The gameplay is good, it kind of reminds me of age of Empires a bit. The sound effects are ok, not really the best in my opinion. The graphics on this game suck, but then again, you cant get the graphic of the computer versions on a handheld like a DS so it's kinda understandable, but I still feel like they couldve tried harder to make it better.
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.
A must buy that will leave you wanting and disappointed.

Summary: Civilization for the DS is a throwback to the days of CivII with an added Nintendo flare. Interesting and fun, but nothing more. For starters, the AI is all over. For example, I attacked a pike man with a tank that had naval power bonus and was defeated by the pike man. Apart from the AI and a short game play (I beat the game in the easiest level in under 3hrs) the game, although a bit “cartoonish”, will entertain. The interface is easy to learn and very intuitive.
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.
