I previously played the original Civilization (in DosBox) up to this year prior to getting Civ Rev. I have found it to be reasonably deep without taking a month+ for each game. Can take from 2 hours to one week depending upon difficulty level without too much micro-management (e.g. Roads are simply purchased rather a built a section at a time). Plenty of minor power-ups to keep the interest going. It is easy to dip into for 10+ minutes at a time. My only gripes are; 1. there is no overview Map even though the Replay shows exactly what I would have liked in mid-game 2. Random Maps do not allow for any customization and are all very similar i.e. cannot do a small islands scenario or a large continent one just the middle ground 3. No Wii version only PS3 and XBox360 neither of which I own. Finally, I enjoyed it enough to buy a second one to allow for multi-player games.
