Civilization Revolution

It's been a while since I've reviewed a game or even bought a new one but yesterday I purchased Civilization Revolution for Xbox 360. The game follows in the footsteps of past Civilization games, you control a nation and are responsible for expansion, technological advances, defense, politics and an array of other demographics for managing your civilization.

I've been a big fan of the Civilization (Civ) franchise since Civ 2 and was keen to discover how the game had made its transition from PC to console. Over the past year I've favored console games over PC games because of the ease of putting in a disk and playing a game over installing it on your PC.

Civilization Revolution is similar to Civ 4 for the PC however much of the micro management from Civ 4 has been removed, the pace of the game has been significantly increased mainly because technological discoveries happen a lot faster.
