PS3 Game of the Month: Civilization Revolution
Why IGN Picked It: There's something cool about taking Abe Lincoln head to head with Napoleon, and that's exactly what this game does. You choose your leader and then begin building a society from nothing. You'll choose what kind of units to build, defend your city, and what the people study, which leads to advancements in your village such as catapults. You can enter into treaties with neighboring nations and then break them when your army is strong enough to dominate. Basically, this game scratches the itch we all have to rule with an iron fist.
