"You may as well call him 'legendary', Sid Meier has been known for his famous work on the Civilization series, which gave PC gamers one of the most in-depth real-time strategy games to the market in an intuitive nature. With its new iteration, the series has turned to appealing to the larger crowd at hand instead of its PC group following that is has gathered over the years since the series debut in 1994. Never mind that Revolution looks like a Civ game all wrapped up in the Sims world. If that's what it takes to appeal to the younger generation and gaming world in general, then it is most certainly a welcome change. Although, followers might be turned off by this, once you step into its world, you certainly shouldn't have any trouble finding yourself at home again at least until Civilization V releases.
You have 16 civilizations to choose from as you begin to take on the world as Caesar (Rome), Abraham Lincoln (Americans), and Queen Elizabeth (English) among others. Once you establish your city and begin your journey, you'll notice the ease of the control scheme. It is mapped specifically towards your needs and gives you the most versatile experience possible. The only flaws in this aspect would be the camera, as once the screen gets busy and you decide to start expanding your empire, the camera will jerk around to its various positions to adjust to where your units are at the time. The single player campaign can take you anywhere from 3-5 hours to complete in its entirety. That may seem like a while, but once you get started you'll be celebrating your civilization victory before you know it."
