When we first kicked things off we noticed right away that the streamlined interface was an intuitive system; we easily shot straight into the natural flow of the game. Things go much faster in Civilization Revolution as compared to the traditional PC games as a lot of commands have been simplified. For example, workers are not controlled individually and automatically carry out preset commands. This is good as it cuts out tedious and repetitious actions within turns and lets you focus more on moving military units and defending your empire.
All in all, the PS3 version played very well. PC gamers who love the Civilization series will definitely want to give this console iteration a try. It is quite a different game in a traditional sense, but that just points out the series is growing, and the game is a new and innovative experience. Also, we've been told that a demo for the PSN should hit before the game's release, so there's no reason not to give it a go.
Stay tuned. We'll have a brand new interview with Civilization series creator, Sid Meier, for you later this week.
