the epic game Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution is coming this 8th july.......
well if u not heared or played on pc donot worry...... its comppetly redesined for console.The basics are still the same: You play as an up-and-coming empire builder looking to extend your influence across the world. And, as in previous Civilization entries, you'll have a number of ways to win the game. There's the military solution, where you bully your neighbors through sheer strength; economic victory, where you price your competitors out of the picture; cultural, where the city with the most advanced culture comes out on top; and the space race, where the first society that makes it into space declares ultimate victory. As you progress through the game, your various units will improve as you go along. The small phalanx of soldiers we saw in the beginning improved to veterans after just their first battle. Though you initiate battles manually, the actual combat will be hands-off and feature a ton of animations from the different combatants. Finding success on the battlefield, or elsewhere in the game, will result in you earning upgrades for your different units. For the soldiers, it could mean upgrading them to scouts, or giving them an infiltration upgrade (essentially turning them into ninja soldiers and granting them a 100 percent bonus when attacking a city), or giving them the ability to heal themselves when on the battlefield. In addition to individual upgrades, three soldier units can combine to form an army that is stronger than the sum of its parts. Also, any upgrades held by the individual soldiers will carry on for the army that is composed of those soldiers. If these different gameplay aspects of Revolution seem like a typical Civilization game to you, its look and feel most likely will not. Graphically, the game will feature big, bright characters and units that have an almost cartoonish feel to them. Though you'll probably engage in plenty of battles in the game, they all have a sort of lighthearted appeal to them that will ensure the game is family friendly. The different societies in the game will all have their own look and feel--including unique architecture for buildings and costumes for units. As you progress through the game, you'll be occasionally met with luminaries from other empires as well as your many advisors that will give you tips on how to progress, or advise you of new opportunities. These have their own look and feel too--from the sultry, sexy Cleopatra to the bow-tied science advisor, and even Napoleon himself. These characters have fun animations all their own--one of our favorites was watching as our military advisor came onscreen to shove luminaries such as Cleopatra or Napoleon out of the way in order to offer his tactical advice.
In addition to a vigorous single-player campaign, Civilization Revolution will feature some robust multiplayer options including ranked games for up to four players (including four-player free for all, 1-on-1 duels, or 2-on-2 team matches), as well as leaderboards and support for video chat. One of Meier's ideas for multiplayer was a game of the week, where players can compete in a scenario and post their high score online. Following the discovery of nuclear fission in 1934, it took more than a decade to develop nuclear weapons. In Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution, it took us only two hours.
That said, it's a long, hard road to becoming the word's first nuclear superpower in Revolution, which is the first Civilization game developed exclusively for consoles (and the Nintendo DS) since Civilization II way back on the original PlayStation. For the first time we got our hands on the PlayStation 3 version and we can safely say the content is identical to the Xbox 360 version. For our civilization, we selected Abraham Lincoln to grow a tiny village by the name of Washington into a modern metropolis, a home of progressive thinkers, a bastion of learning, and a military stronghold armed to the teeth with intercontinental ballistic missiles. Global thermonuclear war, anyone?
he road to victory is simple: accumulate 20,000 gold pieces and build the World Bank for an economic victory; attract 20 great people from history to your banner for a cultural victory; or construct several wonders of the world for another type of cultural victory. However, the quickest route is to wipe your enemies from the face of the Earth to earn a bloody domination victory. You can probably guess which route we chose to take.
Early on, our American f
, our American force met the Mongols, led by Genghis Khan. We stumbled upon his bumbling civilization in only the first few turns, so you can immediately see how quickly the game moves. We offered Khan an olive branch; the Americans are infinitely stronger when they reach the industrial age and start churning out unfathomable amounts of resources faster than you can say cotton gin. Soon we ran into Gandhi and his Indian civilization. The capital city of Delhi was poorly defended, so we opted to overrun it in just a few turns, and we couldn't help but smile at the irony of peace with the warmonger Genghis Khan and war with the peaceful Gandhi. Such is life in Civilization Revolution.
Turns passed. America spread its wings as it's known to do, sending settlers into the far reaches of the map to make the land its own, a sort of virtual manifest destiny. By building libraries and focusing on science, our civilization quickly reached the modern era. The Americans receive a triple production bonus once factories are built, and Lincoln made sure that there was ample work for everyone. Meanwhile, a group of settlers discovered the French Empire in a far corner of the map, led by Napoleon. By this time we had already betrayed Genghis Khan, using rocket-powered artillery units to completely overrun his medieval cavalry units. Only Napoleon remained, but we offered him peace so we could continue on the road to nuclear power, which would assure complete victory. To curb any expansion attempts by the French, we stationed troops at their borders so no settlers could pass. As such, only Paris and Rouen remained.
More turns passed. After we researched literacy, mathematics, and advanced flight, Wilbur Wright joined our cause and helped us to develop flying fortresses. By this time American government had evolved from authoritarian despotism to democracy, and the power of the people does not allow government to attack without provocation. Nevertheless, as much respect as we have for democracy, we didn't build flying fortresses to just look at them. Lincoln quickly proclaimed emancipation from the people and reverted to despotism, a tumultuous switch that resulted in one turn of anarchy, which we didn't even notice other than a hollow rioting sound effect. In the next turn, we ordered the bombers over an army of French archers and watched in glee as their arrows bounced harmlessly off of our hulls, at which point we sentenced them to oblivion.
To his credit, Napoleon sensed defeat and offered olive branches after each turn, hoping for peace. Our submarines and battleships were parked just off of the French coast, and things looked bleak. Meanwhile, our research of atomic theory and nuclear power was complete, and Washington built the world's first atomic weapon. Lincoln took aim at Rouen, and fired.
The skies turned black. The earth shook and Rouen was permanently erased from history, leaving behind nothing more than a radioactive black crater in the ground. Lincoln ordered his units full-speed ahead, and tanks rolled through downtown Paris like it was 1940. Utterly defeated, Napoleon surrendered and America reigned supreme as the lone power in the universe.
So yes, nuclear victory is as enjoyable as ever in Civilization Revolution. One concern we have is that the single-player game is only a randomly generated map on which you compete against four other civilizations. We would have liked to see an epic mode with all 16 civilizations duking it out at once on a realistic map of Earth, but at least there are several challenging scenarios to play through in addition to online multiplayer with a total of five players. And with 16 civilizations, each with its own bonuses and special units, you can bet that there is always a reason to take just one more turn. thats contain most of it look for it......overload out
