Sid Meier may be an old-timer in the game-development community, but that doesn't mean he's afraid to kick some ass. In his slightly more streamlined, more cartoony PS3, Xbox 360, and DS versions of his legendary strategy series Civilization, he's leaving subtle behind and going for all-out war. The proof? Now military troops can earn new powers as they level up; they can gain powerful offensive and defensive bonuses; and they can even do a Voltron impersonation and join together to form super "army" units. "If you can figure out the right way to do it," says Civilization Revolution producer Jason Bergman, "You can get ridiculously powerful units. That's what Sid wanted...because it's fun. He didn't want all these small, incremental bonuses [for combat] like in Civ 4."
