I found the game to be perfectly suited to the DS console. The majorityof the time you can play using the stylus alone, although my house mate is now also addicted, and he barely uses it. As the game is about how you play it and not spectacular graphics, it fits what you need to see on the map & city screens, allowing you to straight-forwardly get on with ruling the world.
The controls and menu systems I found to be simple and intutive, I barley looked at the instruction booklet, and the game itself is really good fun. I can't stop playing, and because it's different everytime, I keep trying to improve and better my previous games. It will played over and over, for a good while yet. It's not one that can be completed and discarded.
The resulting game is a mixed blessing. Coming as part of a rash of console versions, it arrives as a trimmed down version, with a number of expected features and controls automated or absent. Trading is barely there, micro-management of the land surrounding your cities happens automatically, as does taking a hand in the more social-engineering aspects of the original versions. Additionally, the game has been designed with the console-player in mind, assuming a shorter attention span, necessitating smaller, more crowded maps where confrontations are inevitable.
Smaller omissions irritate too, there doesn't seem to be a way to set up production queues, for example.
But the magic is still there somewhere, and it doesn't take long before the familiar addiction takes hold. Before you know it, hours will have passed as you punch the `next turn' button one-last-time-no-honestly. The trick to it is that this isn't Civilization, it's Civilization Revolutions, it works differently and should be treated as a new game. In its own terms, it is very successful, but you should be wary about comparing it with that other Civilization game you've probably played before, as its considerably different.
It's a shame, too, that the developers didn't make more of the DS's interface advantages.Read more ›
You would expect the DS version to be most easily controlled by the stylus too, and it is true that you can use the stylus throughout without even touching a face button, but the game often misreads your intentions, moving troops when you wanted to select someone else, choosing wrong options in dialogue, etc. The game is far easier to control by the pad and face buttons and much quicker too!
My biggest gripe with this game though is that once you are used to the early difficulty levels and you become lost in a void of frustration. The first four difficulty levels become far too easy, and the final difficulty level is impossibly hard.Read more ›
That being said, this game was far better than I expected. A mix between "age of empires" and "risk" is probably the best way to describe this game- you can choose to develop your civilisation via military might, trade, knowledge or culture, and you do so using a board game style "turn" system (which means you move all your pieces on your turn, and then wait for your opponents to move on theirs).
As a consequence of this you always want to stay on for "one more turn", and you will find yourself playing long into the night.
A great game.
