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. It seems designed to make the game easier to pick up and play and to shorten the length of a game--I played a couple of random maps through to winning, and both games ran between 2-3 hours.

The graphics are a little crude, which is surprising considering how nice some other recent DS titles look and how well-designed the full version of Civ now looks. (As of July 10th, 2008, Amazon is showing the PC/console version of the game in the screencaps above, so don't be fooled.) I don't mind the cartoon look of the characters, but the pixellated edges and dull blue top screen image between turns looks less than stellar. That would never make me NOT play this game, though, ha ha.

In general, the DS version feels like it's something between Age of Empires for the DS and the console/PC version of Civ.

As a long time Civ player (all the way back to Civ I), I can say that this title is indeed the true Civ experience. Everything you loved about the original seems to be here and it is greatly simplified. It has to be simplified really as the DS system is not as capable as a full blown PC is. The maps seem a tad small to me, meaning you bump into other civilizations faster than you might otherwise, but overall the look and feel of Civ is in there. This will be great for people who love Civ4 and travel a lot, or simply just want to relax in the back yard and test their empire building skills. Well done Sid Meier!

Really just a perfect little handheld strategy game...Graphics are weak, even by DS standards, but does it really matter? This game is perfect for on the go type playing, which makes it a perfect fit for the DS...its turn based, so you can shut it down on the fly, and then open it up hours later, and easily be able to take the time to "remeber where you were" before making a move. It simply just fits very well.

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. Its allways snaking continents with some islands. You also don't have workers, which is good and bad, you just pay for a road from one city to the next. Expect to have fewer cities than your used to as well, I guess this is to help the game move faster.

Its a good game, but doesn't touch the last PC version. I have yet to see Revolution on another system, perhaps I will have different opinions about those.

Pros: A well paced game, very appropriate for DS, replay value is very high, appropriate for all skill levels.

Cons: Play ends after so many turns, the historical stuff is cringe worthy, minor touch screen issues.

This is probably one of the best titles available on the Nintendo DS. I've played it several times -- the replay value is very high because each time you play it, it is a different experience. There are four different ways of winning. You can win a Cultural Victory by obtaining a certain number Great Person, Wonders of the World, and converted enemy cities, a Technological Victory by obtaining a certain number of technologies, an Economic Victory by obtaining a certain amount of gold, or a Domination Victory by capturing enemy capitals. There is a lot of strategy involved in which civilization you choose to be as well because the different civilizations have different advantages. One civilization might start the game with a cathedral, giving them a cultural advantage, while another might start with stronger warriors, giving them a military advantage. You can also play scenarios in which the game works differently -- for example a scenario in which barbarians are more aggressive or a scenario in which naval battles play a larger part. The diversity of ways to play is probably this game's biggest advantage.

The game is a bit simplified from larger console versions, but this works well for a DS game. Playing through a campaign typically last a couple of hours which means that you can pick up the game a play it in an afternoon. The graphics aren't high end, but they serve their purpose well. The menus all work well making micro-managing your civilization a breeze.

This is my favorite game for the Nintendo DS of the six or seven that I own. It's quick, easy to understand, takes a little bit of strategy, and has some variety so that every game is not the same (although it is repetitious).
Each civilization has differences, so you'll want to try them all. There are four different ways to win the game, and of course, you'll want to try them all.
I also own the PS3 version, but all the extra animation and graphics on that version really don't add anything to the game-play, and only slow it down.
When my baby was only a few months old, I would have to sit with him to get him to sleep. This game was perfect for that because, unlike action games, it's turn-based and I could put it down to tend to him and then come right back without messing up my game.
True, the graphics are nothing special, but the map is clear, the icons are clear, and they don't get in the way. Truthfully, I play it with the sound off (even when I'm not sitting with the baby), so I can't comment on the sounds (assuming it makes them).
It has several difficulty levels so you can have a mindless, easy game or a challenge. There are also special scenarios or down-loadable games to try.
I'm a 38 year old gamer from the Atari 2600 days, and I like it!
