4.0 out of 5 stars Very Fun & Streamlined... As They Intended July 10, 2008
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Please take the 1-star review with a grain of salt.

Sure this isn't as complex as the standard PC-based games. However everyone who is even considering buying this game already knows that. Civ Rev is intended to be a scaled-back version of the PC games that gives console players the taste of strategy that is lacking from console games without burdening them with the massive time investment which those games require.

In Revolution you can gain a victory on the same day that you start playing if you play aggressively, and that's not really such a bad thing. Then turn around play as 1 of the many other great historic leaders. If you want a greater challenge, there are difficulty settings and the highest level is far from easy.

In short, the game is fun, looks good and has enough strategy to make it a thinking game without forcing you to clear your weekend plans entirely. Perhaps this was their way of dipping their toes in the console pool and if this game takes off there just may be more complex offerings in the future that are more in line with the PC versions. Until then, have fun and don't go to a Bruce Willis movie expecting it to be Citizen Cane, which is what the 1-star reviewer has essentially done.

4.0 out of 5 stars I came I saw I conquered.... Well sort of... July 29, 2008
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the type of game I have been waiting to hit the consoles for years. A good strategy game that is not bogged down with too much. Sid Meier has created a game that can get just about any gamer into strategy gaming.

Getting into Civilization Revolution is simple. When you are at the starting menu you can go to the play now option and get into a game quickly. There are five difficulty levels available which make this game available to any type of gamer. I found it best to start on the simplest level to get the gameplay down first. Now more experienced players will probably start at a more difficult level. In the single player setting you can also play the game of the week which is something new to the Civilization series. This setting allows you to play the same Civilization and map as everyone else. It's a good chance to hone your skills and compare yourself to other players. This game also has online play which allows you to take on others in building your civilization to the top. There are four different ways to win a game and most games will take you at least three hours no matter what difficulty level. The four ways to win are financial, cultural, domination, or technology(alpha centurai).

I have found that no matter how good I think I am at this game the style can change drastically from match to match. Just have many different maps and varied civilizations can change the difficulty drastically. Playing on the same difficulty level can have you dominating one time and then getting beat up another time. I have found that no matter what type of way you try to win the game it's always best to have your cities well fortified. When your civilization has become established I have found probably the only real negative.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but not as deep as other Civ games July 22, 2008
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I think of this game as "Civ Light". It lacks much of the depth of other Civ games, and seems designed to be easier and faster to play. Some examples: the map is very small, and you have no control over the map size or type. You no longer build roads square by square, but instead create them instantly (for large amounts of money) and only between cities. There are no railroads (roads now act much like railroads).

In terms of gameplay, because the map is so small, it tends to feel very crowded -- you'll run into multiple civilizations early on, not too far from where your own settlers begin. Often the whole map will have only one major continent. As a result, it's pretty much a scramble to grab as much of this meager territory as you can early in the game. Then, once you develop a single tank army (by building and combining three tanks), you can pretty much take any city with it, and just walk around the map mopping up. So there is definitely a difficult mid-game phase where you risk losing cities to attacks or culture, but after that there's a pretty long clean-up phase where your win is inevitable.

It's still fun, but as a more shallow game, the fun is likely to wear off a lot sooner than it would with the older, deeper versions of Civ. Still, even a shallow Civ is better than no Civ, so I'm happy to see that it's come to new game systems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing one thing July 10, 2008
By Carrie
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been playing Civilization since 1992 when it was available on my high school server for students to play during free time in our computer classes. We knew this new version of the game would be lacking a few things when we read the previews. There is one thing I was not aware would be missing when I purchased the game. The special victories (cultural, domination, economic, technology) have been available in the series for a while now. However, there has always been the ability to uncheck or disable these victories and continue game play. I was VERY disappointed to find that after only four hours of game play that I could not go on any further. This makes it very difficult to make it as far as discovering flight let alone participate in a space race. The lack of all other features is acceptible to me since I get the chance to play Civilization in HD widescreen for the first time (and with a joystick). It's just the fact that I am unable to play the game all the way to when I say I'm done that drives me to give my favorite game ever only four stars out of five. This will be the biggest flaw to be cautious of for long time fans of the game.

P.S. If I am wrong about this flaw and there is a way to turn off these special victories, somebody please let me know!
