Das Gamer Writes:
"After four hours of drool-inducing play of Sid Meier's Civilization: Revolution, on the bus back to NYC, even the 5000-year-old mummy sitting next to me was interested in what was happening on the two little screens under my thumbs. "Does it really take over five years for your soldiers to just cross two squares of desert land?" she asked. "Yes," I told her, "I chose George W. Bush as my leader." She frowned at me then turned away and continued to rot in her fifteen dollar seat.
Ok, so I was just playing with her. You cannot choose Dubya as your fearless dictator, and unlike American voters he can't be forced on you either by way of hanging chads and the good people of Florida. But you can choose from such luminaries as Ghengis Khan, Alexander The Great, Mao and more, to lead you to victory in Firaxis and 2K's successful strategic gem.
The developers did an excellent job cramming every detail they could into the DS version, unfortunately not the handy Civlopedia or the cool aquatic pastel look of its console brethren, but this shouldn't count against this title since it provides all the same entertainment value as you race through eras which disappear at a rapid pace."
