The effects are nice at some points, but basic for the most part.. comparing this game to the PC version will leave much to be desired as far as playability. The game time is very short in the one player games, and a little too automated.
Sid Meier Does it again but on the 360, ps3 and Ds, this game is worth a rent or even buy it, because of its addictive gameplay and play as ancient civilizations and lead your people to the future of mankind while you wage war or keep the peace with other civilization's. There is 4 ways to win, Dominate the other civilizations, Win by having 20 great people or converted cities and a certain wonder to be built, Win through going up the technology tree and reach Alpha Centarui, and last by having the most money and build a certain wonder in order to win. Trust me on this one, this is a game you need patience and some thinking to dominate your foes, Also there is Multiplayer, Play 1v1 or 2v2 or just be by yourself and face other enemy's on FFA. Any who I'm done with this review and I'm going to play this Excellent game
