PALGN writes: Sid Meier is a name that has been synonymous with PC gaming for over two decades. In particular, his Civilization series that debuted in 1991 has been well-known for its "just one more turn" addictive gameplay. However, the Sid Meier's Civilization brand seems to be undergoing a renaissance, with the development team at Firaxis taking up the challenge of replicating a legendary PC strategy game on the Xbox 360, PS3 and surprisingly, the Nintendo DS. 2K Games recently gave us the chance to check out the multiplayer in Sid Meier's Civilization: Revolution.
The word is that Civilization: Revolution has been completely built from scratch for the consoles, in order to make best use of the platforms. Just as you did on the PC, your general aim is to try and become the ruler of the world, by establishing a leading civilization. You start off at the dawn of man and work your way through historical periods, until you potentially end up waging a space age war. Along the way, you'll discover various technologies, go head-to-head with various historical leaders and build your empire. But you already knew that, right?
