There was a short thread about it a while ago here:viewtopic.php?f=170&t=316768&hilit=revolution
I don't know much about the game but from that thread it seems to be a slimmed down version of Civ 4 apparently. If you're not familiar with the Civ games and want to give it a try it's probably worth it but if you play games on your computer and your system can handle it just get Civ 4.
It's one of my all-time favorite games and has pretty much ruined any other strategy/war game for me I think. The depth in the the PC version is unbelievable. Still if the console version can even approach the PC version it's probably still worth it. Especially if you have never tried the Civ franchise before.
