I am addicted to the PC version of this game and spent days at a time playing the hardest levels. The many levels on the PC game provide a gamer at every level challenges, even frustrations. This new civilization for the PS3's of the world must have been designed for 5 year olds. Every game I played, I was done in less then an hour. There is no strategy in this version. Just build and conquer. The cartoon graphics lead me to believe that a child was the focus here. I looked forward to this release for months and have been very disappointed.
I can't say enough about the PC version of this game. Sid designed a game that is my favorite of all time, but this PS3 version is just awful. I feel like Winnie the Pooh is going to pop up at any time and tell me to attack piglet. Games of Madden take longer then this "strategy" game.

Easy controls, as far as I can tell. I have played the demo version on my PS3 enough times to think a rental of this game is the least you can do. I have this game in my list just until I can afford to buy it. I will buy it ASAP, But, I had to get another game on the PC "Spore" pre-ordered Download version first and foremost. I LOVE strategy games! This game is so good I bought all 3 versions on the PC civ4,civ warlords,&Beyond the sword. I am very excited about Colonization coming out soon!! I loved thaat game when it came out in the early 90's it made me fail a few classes in elementary. I couldn't get enough of any of Sid Meier's games he IS a Game God, all things he makes work and sell like gold. This game is no different, yes it has a more saturated color palette but it does work because on a 1080p HDTV it matters. Most colors tend to fade the larger the screen. I insist anyone to get this game it is Game of the year for Strategy games on the PS3/XB360 (I don't own a 360 so I'm only guessing it's as good as the PS3 one) GET THIS GAME!! 10 out of 10 5 stars!!!
