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.

I thought this would be like the old Civilization game; it is not. I guess it doesn't have enough memory or something but it jumps around and seems to do a lot of the playing for you.

HASH(0xa7299b10) out of 5 stars Simplified version of Civ, but still fun and addictive July 10 2008
By Chris - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0xa7299f18) out of 5 stars Civ still rocks, even on the small screen! July 9 2008
By Social Exodus - Published on Amazon.com
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!

HASH(0xa740615c) out of 5 stars Bought this after PS3 version, like it better July 11 2008
By robin b - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0xa7299f90) out of 5 stars Its okay, but it wont replace my Beyond The Sword Aug. 8 2008
By Steve - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0xa70ac330) out of 5 stars Fun to play again and again Feb. 21 2009
By J. B. Pritchard - Published on Amazon.com
Pros: A well paced game, very appropriate for DS, replay value is very high, appropriate for all skill levels.

Cons: Play ends after so many turns, the historical stuff is cringe worthy, minor touch screen issues.

This is probably one of the best titles available on the Nintendo DS. I've played it several times -- the replay value is very high because each time you play it, it is a different experience. There are four different ways of winning. You can win a Cultural Victory by obtaining a certain number Great Person, Wonders of the World, and converted enemy cities, a Technological Victory by obtaining a certain number of technologies, an Economic Victory by obtaining a certain amount of gold, or a Domination Victory by capturing enemy capitals. There is a lot of strategy involved in which civilization you choose to be as well because the different civilizations have different advantages. One civilization might start the game with a cathedral, giving them a cultural advantage, while another might start with stronger warriors, giving them a military advantage. You can also play scenarios in which the game works differently -- for example a scenario in which barbarians are more aggressive or a scenario in which naval battles play a larger part. The diversity of ways to play is probably this game's biggest advantage.

The game is a bit simplified from larger console versions, but this works well for a DS game. Playing through a campaign typically last a couple of hours which means that you can pick up the game a play it in an afternoon. The graphics aren't high end, but they serve their purpose well. The menus all work well making micro-managing your civilization a breeze.

Occasionally, tapping on the touch screen isn't as precise as I'd like it, causing my troops to move in ways that I don't want them to move, but this doesn't happen often. I have to admit, that my inner historian cringes when Chicago is sitting right next to London and Gandhi is talking to Alexander the Great, but I can see why they made the game this way and the attributes that are given to each civilization actually make sense.

This game's biggest problem is that if you haven't won in a certain number of turns, the game just ends. I do not know why the game is made this way because given enough time, someone would invariably win. It is very annoying to be playing and planning and then be told that the game will end in 5 turns.

Still, this is a fun, complex game that can be played over and over again. 5- stars.
