Summary: I quite enjoy this one and go back to it often just to kill time. On low-mid difficulty it becomes quite easy to make it through a session in little time. It becomes a little repetitive after a while and replay will slow down a bit but for a portable version I think it hits the mark.
Summary: I got this game a few weeks ago after watching my buddy's wife play it on xbox360.It is a fun strategy game similar to the game risk.It is challenging too.There are different levels of difficulty to choose from.
Summary: Good miniature version of the Civ franchise. No dissapointments in gameplay, other than the fact that this is a bit scaled down in comparison to the computer versions. I really like the strategy turn-based gameplay in this. The interface is okay. The only reason I have it ranked as a four is because the graphics are a little lacking at times and it is sometimes hard to quickly manage your empire.
Summary: Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution is a fun game, I will not lie. Its got a great choice of civilizations to play as and very fun game play. The trophies are a nice touch, but don't add much addiction to collect them all. I began the game on the easiest difficulty and easily mastered it, then I moved on to Warlord and got a little more challenging and so on.
Summary: classic civilization, "just one more turn" doesnt do it justice....its good fun, reminds me of some the the classic civ played on a pc, havent tried the wi fi yet but i can barely wait. i think this game in general is better on a big screen vs a portable....i like the big overview to keep better tabs on what is going on....and the tech tree is easier to decipher on a big screen as well, not so much back and forth, if you are going for a specific route/technology.
Summary: As a huge Civilization Fan, I was thrilled to see that it was coming out for the DS. Since receiving it, I have already spent many hours playing this game over and over again. Although it is not as elaborate as CIV IV, it makes good use of the DS and the dual screens. It really reminded me of the original Civilization from back in the 80's, but of course with much better graphics.
Summary: This game is fun, its kills time. I might have waited until it was cheaper but I dont regret buying it. The game is very low in graphics as well as units and buildings. They hand picked one unit from each era for each type, ie one horseback, one defense, one offense, one catapult type. This is fine, as it keeps it simple, good for stacking armies. What I dislike the most about this game is that it doesn't allow custom games which is how I normally play on the PC.
Simplified version of Civ, but still fun and addictive

Summary: I'm loving the game so far, but you should know this is sort of a "Civ light" implementation. A lot of the micromanagement has been pulled from the DS version, leaving you to focus largely on producing units and buildings, researching tech, and combat. You won't spend as much time fine tuning city needs and resources, and land improvements are automated. Roads between cities are bought all at once instead of built one square at a time by workers, for example.
