There's definitely room for improvement and, if Civ Rev proves a success, perhaps Firaxis will get the opportunity to refine the Civilisation console experience even more in follow up titles. For now though we're happy to dip in and out of this re-imagination of one of the greatest, most durable strategy games ever released, and have some innocent, no nonsense fun. Put that in your online FPS pipe and smoke it.

While Sid Meier has been quoted as saying that this is the Civilization game he always wanted to make, Revolution's got plenty of shortcomings, and the scope of its vision can sometimes outstrip its mechanics. That said, this is a really satisfying strategy game, and though it might be old hat for PC players, there are few experiences quite like it on consoles.

If you enjoyed Civilization on the PC and are worried that this version might feel stripped down, fear not. Although it does seem simpler at first, you'll soon realize that it's the same signature gameplay you know and love. If you haven't played a Civilization game before, you should get your hands on this worthy new entry in the Civilization canon.
