Conclusion: All in all, Revolution is a worthy addition to the 360 roster. It’s fun, addictive, and easy to play. It may be a but hollow compared to the previous games, but it’s right at home on the consoles. Newcomers will find it easy to get into, and addictive to play, whilst old hands might need a little adapting to get used to the lack of micro-management. Either way, Meier’s done it again.
Conclusion: As I’ve said before, I’ve been in the game industry a long time, yet never really took the time to play a Civ game before this, but CivRev is showing me in quantity what I’ve missed. And, in fact, my immersion in the gameplay experience is a good part of why this review is going up a bit later than planned. I often had a tough time pulling myself away from the playing to write this up.
Conclusion: Civilization Revolution is a blessing in disguise. If you were second guessing yourself about buying another Civilization game on a console then you better get ready to shell out the cash. This is a fun game that you can pick up and play whenever you’d like. Online play is great and as of now we are promised downloadable content. Revolution marks the return of the Civilization series to the consoles in a whole new way.
Excerpt: Civilization Revolution , like its PC kin, is a turn-based, empire building simulator with a heavy emphasis on warfare and backroom politics. You choose your starting nation, each with its own unique units and abilities, and start upon the long journey of building up a successful civilization from a single city. Along the way you’ll expand your empire, cultivate great thinkers, research technology, amass gold, and stomp out the competition.

Conclusion: If you're looking for something new to play and its cheap by all means but remember my motto "Always rent it first". This prevents controller abuse.
