As fans of the PC franchise, PALGN was a little bit skeptical about Sid Meier's Civilization: Revolution to begin with. After all, how do you take something so successful with a mouse and keyboard and then translate it adequately onto a different platform with a different audience? When it comes down to it, they probably couldn't think of a better way to do these things than how they've been achieved in Civilization: Revolution.
There are flaws, sure; the combat is basic, veterans might not be happy with the simplified gameplay and despite all the helpful hints, some people will still be concerned about the mere fact that the game requires some serious thought to progress, rather than just an itchy trigger finger. Make no mistake, though; this is easily the most successful RTS game that has been released on a console before, and it continues the Civilization tradition of being one of the most addictive games we've experienced. If you have an interest in the franchise or genre at all, then this is a worthy purchase - for fans of the series and newcomers alike.
