5.0 out of 5 stars Can't put it down Feb. 20 2014
Verified Purchase
This game is just great, especially if you're into strategy and the Civilization series. It's basically like the regular Civilization games, but stripped down so you don't have to spend hours and hours tweaking your cities and other factors. Instead you can focus on the more fun aspects of expanding your empire, and war. Games typically take 4 or so hours.

The gameplay is seamless and very intuitive. There are a couple small glitches, but they don't affect the gameplay.
Graphics are basic, but don't detract from the game and definitely get the job done, and are good by DS standards.

For me the game was incredibly addicting, and I had a hard time getting on with the rest of my life for a week or so haha! Very replayable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simplified version of Civ, but still fun and addictive July 10 2008
By Chris Walters - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm loving the game so far, but you should know this is sort of a "Civ light" implementation. A lot of the micromanagement has been pulled from the DS version, leaving you to focus largely on producing units and buildings, researching tech, and combat. You won't spend as much time fine tuning city needs and resources, and land improvements are automated. Roads between cities are bought all at once instead of built one square at a time by workers, for example. It seems designed to make the game easier to pick up and play and to shorten the length of a game--I played a couple of random maps through to winning, and both games ran between 2-3 hours.

The graphics are a little crude, which is surprising considering how nice some other recent DS titles look and how well-designed the full version of Civ now looks. (As of July 10th, 2008, Amazon is showing the PC/console version of the game in the screencaps above, so don't be fooled.) I don't mind the cartoon look of the characters, but the pixellated edges and dull blue top screen image between turns looks less than stellar. That would never make me NOT play this game, though, ha ha.

In general, the DS version feels like it's something between Age of Empires for the DS and the console/PC version of Civ.

5.0 out of 5 stars Civ still rocks, even on the small screen! July 9 2008
By Siberian Khatru - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a long time Civ player (all the way back to Civ I), I can say that this title is indeed the true Civ experience. Everything you loved about the original seems to be here and it is greatly simplified. It has to be simplified really as the DS system is not as capable as a full blown PC is. The maps seem a tad small to me, meaning you bump into other civilizations faster than you might otherwise, but overall the look and feel of Civ is in there. This will be great for people who love Civ4 and travel a lot, or simply just want to relax in the back yard and test their empire building skills. Well done Sid Meier!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought this after PS3 version, like it better July 11 2008

Really just a perfect little handheld strategy game...Graphics are weak, even by DS standards, but does it really matter? This game is perfect for on the go type playing, which makes it a perfect fit for the DS...its turn based, so you can shut it down on the fly, and then open it up hours later, and easily be able to take the time to "remeber where you were" before making a move. It simply just fits very well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its okay, but it wont replace my Beyond The Sword Aug. 8 2008
By S. Carey - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is fun, its kills time. I might have waited until it was cheaper but I dont regret buying it.

The game is very low in graphics as well as units and buildings. They hand picked one unit from each era for each type, ie one horseback, one defense, one offense, one catapult type. This is fine, as it keeps it simple, good for stacking armies.

What I dislike the most about this game is that it doesn't allow custom games which is how I normally play on the PC. Its allways snaking continents with some islands. You also don't have workers, which is good and bad, you just pay for a road from one city to the next. Expect to have fewer cities than your used to as well, I guess this is to help the game move faster.

Its a good game, but doesn't touch the last PC version. I have yet to see Revolution on another system, perhaps I will have different opinions about those.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK game, but graphics are pretty bad... July 4 2009
By D. Torres - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a good DS version of the Civilization series. It has pretty much all the things that make these games fun. And although I was not expecting mind blowing graphics, they are still a bit dissapointing and I think the developers could have make a better job. I would recommend this game if you dont mind the poor graphics and just want a portable version of this awesome game.
