"Average, personally disappointed"
2 stars"

I'm a huge fan of the Civ series and nearly wet my pants with excitement upon hearing that Civ was coming to the console… er, again (have CivII on psx). I eagerly anticipated some Civ-esque length battles and micro managing every detail of every city and it's drones… bwahahaha! Even “hands-on” previews couldn't deter me from getting this game.

Sometimes blind faith can equal stupidly spending some hard earned cash on something as fun as having a dirty wet rag thrown in your face. This game felt more like a prequel to the Civ series than an extension of it. The core elements are there but gone is the “just-one-more-turn” factor. It seems to have been designed for people who can't sit still for long periods of time as victory comes pretty quick – even on the harder modes. I've played this game for a total of 9 hours over 3 days (trying to drag out some campaigns), and now I feel like shelving it. Some casual gamers or newbies to Civ may enjoy it longer than I, but I wished now I had waited for the demo on PSN.

"Not as challenging as previous CIV games."
2 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I was pretty excited to get my hands on this game and maybe that's why I felt a little let down by it in the end.

Most of the Civ games I have played involve some sort of strategy although with this game I found myself clicking about two buttons and just watching my Cities overflow. There was no management aspect and I felt as though the game was designed for much younger players. It wasn't really focused building a Civilization. I played the game through multiple times on all the difficulty levels and the longest game I had was a mere 4 hours.

It's a great game to kill a few hours but it's not something I'd recommend for a serious gamer or a fan of the series.

"Fun while it lasts"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I haven't ever owned a Civilization game before, and when I played this it was fun and very addictive. However I quickly ran out of different things to try and do. Also due to the reletively short length of matches it became repetitive.

If you have never played a game like this before, Civilization Revolution is a very good place to start. However if you think you are a veteren, Civilization Revolution's PC brothers might be more suitible.
