Like the iPhone version, but with better graphics.

Summary: Great Game! It's not very complex like "Civilization 5," but it works nicely on Xbox Live if you're playing with your friends. It's much like the iOS version of the game, but with better graphics.
Summary: I've been a fan of the "Civilization" series for over 20 years, practically since the very beginning. "Civilization Revolution," by necessity as a console game, isn't nearly as involved in terms of micro-management as the computer versions, but that doesn't mean this game is any less enjoyable. There are still cities to be built, science to be discovered, wonders to be constructed, and, of course, enemies to be vanquished.
Summary: My first Civilization game was a long time ago and it had features that the new versions lack to their detriment. The biggest thing I miss and one of the fun features of the original was the opportunity to choose how many "enemies" you would face and what size world you wanted to play in. Lacking those features, this game holds fairly true to the original concept.
Summary: If you are looking for a game of strategy and do not want your computer monopolized, then this game for Xbox 360 is a good buy. It is interesting to play with 16 different civilizations, great maps, and minimal violence (civs fighting each other as civilizations are prone to do). Graduated difficulties make the game more challenging and my grandson, who is less than 12, plays this without getting discouraged or frustrated.
