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: 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: 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: If you like strategy games and you have a DS, then Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution is a must have. Though it takes a while to understand the controls and the working of the game in the DS, once you get the hang of it, the play becomes self-intuitive. As someone mentioned, there is very little micromanagement in the game but it still has enough things going for it to keep it interesting.

Summary: This game is suited better for teens and adults. The concept of the game involves starting off with a colony and trying to accomplish one of three things (they can be concurrent): Conquering 4 Capital Cities (Domination), Achieving Technological Advances (Technological), Economic milestones, or Creating the Wonders of the World (Cultural).
Summary: This is the first and, to date, only game I have for the DS. I like it a lot. It's a scaled-down version of the console game, although it's mainly due to graphics. The actual gameplay seems to be fairly similar, although I've spent far less time on this than I have on the PS3 version. If you're a Civ addict, you'll want to pick this up. It's the only portable version (at least that I'm aware of - no PSP version yet), and it makes good use of the two screens on the DS.
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 remarkably playable on the tiny DS screens. I'm a Civ junkie and love this game. It's not quite as addictive as the full versions, but still quite engaging and entertaining. I expected it to have fewer features and be less complex than the computer versions of Civ. Happily it's not as watered down as I had expected!
