Sep 26, 2011I found this version of Civilization surprisingly entertaining and simple in short sessions, for better or for worse. I eventually traded it in because it just felt like a 'lite' version of any other Civ game, but if you're a person with not a lot of time or interest in all the depth of the main titles, this is the perfect alternative. My favorites were Civ IV & V on the PC so they are the basis of my comparison. I've been able to play both of those versions for hours and hours in a single sitting. Weeks have flown by playing huge maps against computer or player opponents. With Civ:Revolution, that would never happen.

Nov 28, 2010Civilisation is a very fun strategy game. Granted it's dumbed down from the PC version, granted it doesn't have the plethora of options that a heavy menu'd PC strategy game would have....but let's get this straight people , we are ps3 owners and in general dont demand RTS games that take 4 days to complete. One solid game can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours which is a fair amount of time. My one gripe is the multiple methods of victory , I think the idea is fantastic and works very well. I would however like to see some reward for alternate strategies. I find that some of the routes to victory are just not practical. A technoligical or cultural victory are infinately easier than a domination victory. Why the game makers didnt put in the multiple method and have domination only game modes only is a mystery. Indeed it would be a hark back to the old days of red alert in which kicking some ass was the only way to win. Overall a solid game which casual RTS players should embrace.… Full Review »
Jun 5, 2014Quick paced and enjoyable PS3 fun!
The problem with bringing games like Civilization to PS3 or Xbox is that you get something that's nothing like the original. The game is so streamlined I feel as if it should have been called something other than Civilization. I guess that's why that tacked on the "Revolution" bit =p… Full Review »
