Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution
Stick to PC
If your like me then you will understand that this game is nothing like the Civilizations on the PC! I mean the game is longer, you get better units, the AI is smarter, the graphics are better, and there is way more Civilizations to choose from! So if you have played the ones on the PC and you think this might be good for you... think again because you will be disappointed with this game. Also this one has no add ons what so ever but all the ones on the PC have good Add ons and mods. So in my book this game is average. Don't get me wrong this game is fun... but it could have been so much better, look at Sims 3 for instance the transition from PC to Consoles was almost the same! (they could have left out some things) But this game seemed like a bad transition.
Great for new player, poor for Civilization Vet's
Civilization has been around a long time and has built up a high level of standards. I have been a fan of civilization for many years. When I heard they finally made the game playable on my X-Box 360 I was jumping for joy. After a search, since it was hard to locate a copy I purchased the game. The opening of the game is wonderful. I started my game with enthusiasm. Right away I noticed a difference. And since I am a long-time player I was disappointed. Many of the more subtle parts of the game are either reduced or removed altogether. You no longer choose what to do with your workers, you constantly have a war, if you want to change what each city is building you have to click into it each time unlike the prompt on the computer version. The game was entertaining although it took me 1/4 of the time the computer game takes me. If you are a seasoned and loyal Civilization player I recommend you stay with the computer version. If you are new to Civilization, you will enjoy the game, although when you are ready for the higher level of challenge, get it on the PC.
Do you ever wish you could rule the world, well civ rev gives you a chance to be top dog. Civ rev is the fennominal game of strategy, skill, luck, and risks. The storyline is unique every time and that is one of my favorite things about the game. The graphics are incredible, the sound is fantastic, and the challenge is the best. The other thing I'd like to mention is the variety of the rulers, it gives you lots of different ways to play civ rev. I do suggest to get used to each difficulty before advancing to the next. Every ruler has a unique skill to start with, for example, the Germans start with immediate upgrade for vet units, and the Russians start with the local map. In civ rev there are 4 ways to achieve victory, 1 way is domination, capture all enemy capitals, another way is technology, be the first to reach alpha centari, the other way is cultural, develop 15 great people or wonders and build the national wonders, the last way is economic get 20,000 and build the world bank. That was my review for the game Civilization Revolution and I hope you consider this review helpful and go and buy this game. :)
A Game That Will Stand The Test Of Time
Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution is a challenging, fast-paced, strategy game that will stand the test of time. It does not have a true story line, but has different scenarios to test a players ability, and give a new objective, or specify how one is to obtain world domination. There are many different civilization choices, with many colorful leaders. It's interesting, and recommended, to check out the civopedia (a very interesting guide to everything within the game, from different terrains, to units, and even inventions). The game itself is well rounded for any user, and has a wide range of difficulties, each fun trying to master. Overall I was very impressed with the game, and have become a little obsessed, trying to reach total domination with each of the four ways, and with each civilization, in each difficulty. I would defiantly recommend this game to anyone looking for a game to stand the test of time.
This is overall a pretty good game. Though I have played the full retail version yet (one of those signed-up-for-it and-was-busy-playing-something-else-when-it-came-out-games) the demo is awesome. While the graphics aren't great, you have to look at them and appreciate what they actually are; in this case, they are not realistic but rather cartoony. The sound is mediocre; it's probably the games weakest technical feature. It really annoyed the heck out of me when every time I did anything I got some weird music. The advisor's are another annoying aspect. They don't talk and they often block the words on the screen so you don't get the full message. The interface rocks; everything is quickly accessible at the click of a button or a flick of a thumbstick. I could continue to gripe or praise the tiny aspects of the game, but the would really just be petty. While it's not Sid Meir's best ever work, it should keep the gaming pop (especially turn based strategy fans) entertained for quite some time.
The game is an extrmeley fun strategy that to this day makes me wish I never let my cousin borrow it for a day. While the sound and the graphics aren't top notch, the game itself has the potential for hours of gameplay through different styles wit ha variety of leaders.
Addicting... Very Addicting.
I just bought this game Saturday, May 1 but i have already logged over 30 hours of play. I am not normally into RTS games, but my friends told me about it so i bought it. I instantly fell in love with it. The AIs get annoying after a while but it justs add to the challenge. I would mainly recommend this game to people who play on xbox live and have friends that will play this with you. That's what makes this game fun. Single player campaign is alright but i wouldn't recommend that as much as multiplayer. The nuke was a little dissapointing, even though it was extremely fun to use the first time, i was hoping that you would be able to build another nuke in a certain amount of turns, but it didnt happen. Thats all i have to say about this game, but only get it if you have 5-7 free hours to play one game of multiplayer. Its rewarding when you finish a game.
Lots of people are saying that they don't like this because it's not as good as other Real Time Strategy games. Personally, this is the only RTS I have ever played, and I loved it. I think if you are really into PC RTS games, this is not for you. But any of you who just want a new, fresh game should get it. It's very fun and is easy to Master. Using a Nuclear Bomb for the first time is very satisfying, and the fights are always different. This game is very easy to set up a Civilization and play, and the game has tons of replay time because each of the civilizations is different. When I finally got the game, I spent roughly 4 hours in one sitting playing it because, for an RTS, it is very fast paced. It's a challenge to simply conquer each Civilization, so each Civilization has its own strengths and weaknesses. This game is one of my all-time favorites. I only can wish for less graphical glitches and for a storyline of some sort that would make it more interesting.
A good review!
WOW! this game is my favorite of all my games! first of all the Ai isn`t good because all you ever get is threats from other countries wich gets very annoying. The graphics are ok and it`s very colourful and all the regions are square. The game is very educational to every body because it has an enclyclopedia (civilopedia). the replay value is incredible because every new game you start has a different Earth. In every new game you start off in 4,000 B.C with a bunch of nomads/settlers. You then use them to find a spot you like to build you capital city at. There are 16 different countries and each has their own abilities,perks,colours,emblems, and style cities.you can choose governments from communs to democracy and pick technologies to research from bronze working,mathematics, and space flight. evey game is different like you don`t know who you will be competing with or what the world will look like or who will win a certain war. this has been by fact the greatest strtegy game in the history of console gaming.
This game is one of the best!!!!!!!!!!
