    The DS did a great job of doing Age of Empires Age of Kings.

    Panzer Tactics looks to be a winner.

    I have Sim City DS which is graphically excellent.

    So I am confident Civilization will be great too.

    Couldn't care less if it comes out for PS3, X-Box-probably-broken or Wii though

    Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
    I didn't for a long time either.

      I'm going to get Panzer Tactics too. I'm always trying to wonder exactly what nations are in western allies.

      I think it's USA, Britain, and Belgium.

      I believe Civilization Revolution will turn out to be better than Age of Empires since there are 16 civilizations and the game will have different periods of time.

        Thus far, the ONLY place I have found the DS a problem, is with older persons being maxed out managing simultaneous multi control configurations for some games, or with some games, the graphics being what they are, limited by screen size.

        If you're all thumbs, or have poor vision, the DS has nothing to offer you hehe.

          Five civilizations and four ages seem like plenty to keep me occupied for a long time. I was home yesterday, so I played another game of Age of Empires on my wife's DS -- one of the tutorials. Great game, and I still have plenty to learn and experience. (I hate the way diagonally adjacent squares aren't considered adjacent, but I guess I'll get used to that. Wish they'd just used hexes instead.)

          I wasn't surprised to notice in the interview that Sid Meier cites improved animations as a big step forward in Civilization. But it made me groan with mild disgust. I couldn't care less about animations or other eye candy. If it's a good game, my imagination can fill in all the audio and video details.

              I saw the website and it looks awesome!
              It showed me every civ in the game, which I have been trying to find out since September.

                Well, it's here, and I just got my copy of the DS version and started playing last night.

                Frankly, I'm less than thrilled. It looks and feels like Civ alright, and there are some pretty cool new features too. But it's not customizable, and there's no strategic overview map. The graphics are so-so, and the interface is a little hard to get used to (so far it seems you need both the buttons and the stylus; I prefer to use just one or the other).

                On the plus side, I see some big improvements. Spies are back, in a better-than-ever way. Armies are easier to build and more plentiful. Ship capacity is unlimited. Diplomacy works better. And there's less micromanagement to fiddle with.

                Still, I doubt this will become a favorite of mine.

                  Been playing Civ Rev for about two weeks. Never the same game twice. Online play is "foul"; this game is a resource hog! Bandwidth and "Lag" is a major issue. Other then that the game is very enjoyable and has high replay value.

                    I have this on PS3 and I'd like to play with someone from the forums. I don't have a mic or keyboard. PM me or post if you'd like to play. I'm in Minnesota.
