    The Civilization: Revolution video game thread

    I have always been a big fan of the Civilization games, and I was simply thrilled this came out on the PS3. I reserved my copy at Gamestop, and picked it up today. I poured quite a few hours in the Civilization 2 game for the PS1, and hope this will be just as good if not better. I will let you all know how I am doing in the game, and hope there are others who also are fans of the Civilization series.

    Definitely interested to see what you think.

    I've been a huge fan of all of Sid Meier's games during the years.

    I play Civ IV on my Mac all the time and am totally addicted; let me know what you think, as I'm thinking of picking this up for PS3.

    I just finished my first game on Civilization 3. I started out on Chieftain level so I could get used to how this game works. There are 4 ways to win the game: Domination-achieve a military victory, Cultural- Collect 20 members of what are called Great People for your Civ and build the United Nations, Technological- send a spaceship to Alpha Centauri, and Economic-collect 20000 gold and build a World Bank. You can easily lose multiple hours if not days playing this game, and it has considerable replay value. I won the first game by achieving a Economic victory. You can also upgrade your military units and give them additional abilities.

    I've played the demo extensively for PS3 and expect my pre-order to arrive on Monday.

    It's basically Civ for people who want to play a game in 3 hours or less. The hard core Civ fanatics will no doubt be bored and a bit underwhelmed, but as a platform game, it succeeds quite well.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    I played the heck out of the demo on Xbox Live - and will be picking up the game this week along with NCAA Football.

    I agree with RMR - it's a thinned out version of the PC version, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
