Civilization Revolution





Civilization Revolution 


Civilization Revolution on the Nintendo DS is a pretty neat hand held version of Civ. It does have a few problems, which the WMG will get into later in this review. The player gets to pick one major world leader from time, and grow a civilization from the stone age on forward. Build cities, fortify them, build roads, troops, wonders, buildings, etc. The Nintendo DS really moves the action along quickly, and in the easier difficulty levels the computer is extremely guilable. The WMG made peace treaties when it was convenient, and then would break them and easily conquer the computer’s capitals. Not really sure what the computer was doing during all its turns. The harder settings do present more of a challenge.

The map screen, and the fighting screens are the two major screens the player will see (editor: aside from the building screen). The map screen has small graphics that are not very impressive. The fighting screens are larger, but they lack in detail. The violence shows one side doing an attack and the other side falling. There is little way to tell if progress is being made on say a fortified city. The WMG threw a lot of troops at Ghandi until finally taking him out.

The music is cool in Civilization Revolution for the DS. The sounds fit the theme of this game, and feel majestic a lot of the time. The sounds are scaled down from the Personal Computer (PC) roots of this series. Not giving in to negotiation demands really gets the blood pumping since war is what comes right after.

If you are looking for a hand held version of the Civ series, then Civilization Revolution is right up your alley. There is a ton of replay in this game, and with a lot of secrets you can be kept busy.

Troop movement is simple enough, and Civilization Revolution is intelligent enough to move to the next troop. The WMG’s best advice is to make armies (three of the same troop on the same space) as quickly as possible. This makes conquering other areas simple as pie. The military path is the easiest to success, however the gold or culture paths are much more satisfying. The WMG had fun playing Civilization Revolution, although it felt a little short.

Civilization Revolution can fit so many different styles of player that it is a great game to see on the Nintendo DS. Sequels would be greatly appreciated especially on the Playstation Portable (PSP). The lesson on civilization progression is a fascinating one to learn. Good job 2K Games.
