Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution

The game is a good transfer from the PC to console, however as everybody else stated it is rather short and a few of the great options are missing.

It was fun to play on a console especially with the graphics but i couldn't find my self attracted to it as i was with the PC version.

good to rent - not to buy - bottom line!

Perfect blend of strategy and education

Strategy and diplomacy have never become combined in a game as well as Sid Meier's Civilization: Revolution. Real world warfare and international relations are combined with educational features in the Sid Meier "Civilopedia," teaching users history, and how to change it. Ever wondered what Ghandi would be like if he waged war? Even wondered if Napoleon or Genghis Khan could be peaceful? Well in Sid Meier's Civilization: Revolution you can be many world leaders ranging from Shaka Zulu of Zimbabwe or Cleopatra of Egypt. Other great leaders include Abraham Lincoln, Queen Elizabeth, Catherine the Great, Alexander the Great, and Caesar to name a few. This game will take you on a historic adventure where you will lead your nation to four different victories. Domination, where you capture four opposing nation's capital cities, space, where you are the first nation to reach the planet alpha centauri, culture, where you are the first nation to build the united nations, and monetary, where you are the first nation to build the world bank. This game is perfect.

ok well not exactly 20 minutes to run through the game but this game is insanely quick- i finished it twice in one night and ive never played this before - the game flow, graphics etc are cool but if your looking for something that is going to last like oblivion your not going to find it here - big disappointment on the time it takes to go through the game- i was hoping to get to the 21st centery and beyond but the entire game / world was over by the early 40's

its a pass
