Next month the Civilization franchise is getting a makeover with Civilization Revolution. The console games could be described as scaled-back versions of the classic PC game, streamlined for accessibility and more action. The Nintendo DS game can be described as even further scaled back, offering society building on a small scale. Portable gamers will be getting a closer, more zoomed-in view of the world. Without the ability to zoom out and view the entire playing area, Civ Rev DS can feel claustrophobic.
