Civilization Revolutions

Postby JTWood » Sat Nov 24, 2007 6:25 pm

Anyone heard anything about the console version of Civ other than what's in this page?

The comments make it sound like it will be dumbed down for console play, but I don't see anything in the preview (same link) that shows any of the game play. You guys know how the game play will work?

It looks to be a "blitz" version of Civ. City control is stripped down, the maps are much smaller, and more cartoony feel to the characters and battles.

Thanks, Tav.

What hasn't been brought along is a lot of the micromanagement that tends to turn PC Civilization games into epic marathons.

That's all I needed to hear. No, thank you. :-t

A dumbed down version is completely missing the point of what makes Civ such a great game.
