Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution coming to new-gen consoles and handhelds

Take-Two has announced that strategic mastermind Sid Meier intends to embrace the playthings of our fairly uncivilized age and build Civilization Revolution, the designer's first "next generation" game. Scheduled for a Spring 2008 release on modern consoles and handheld platforms, the strategy game promises to build the widely appreciated Civilization gameplay "from the ground up" for consoles. According to the press release, that means "an all new accessible, visually immersive, and action-packed world" with a "streamlined time scale for quicker games, intense combat, and constant action." Yes, we checked twice to make sure we were reading the correct document.

It's also the game Sid Meier's always wanted to make, you know. "Civilization Revolution is the game I've always wanted to make!" he says. "We are excited to take advantage of the power of next generation consoles and the ingenuity of handhelds, to create a great and unique strategy game for newcomers to the series, as well as the millions of fans around the world who enjoy Civilization on the PC." Since the PC's Civilization almost seems like the shushing librarian compared to console gaming's heavily armed macho man, this "Revolution" faces quite a challenge in getting the two to shake hands and appeal to both sets of gamers. Mr. Meier had best prepare himself for an initial torrent of "it's being dumbed down" accusations.

You might choose to save those for your fellow player, as Civilization Revolution will support online multiplayer matches along with integrated video and voice chat. We can't wait to don togas and wave our scepters about as we crush the feeble armies of General H@xinat0rr 3K.

I can't wait for this game! Anyone else excited about this?

This is the first I've heard about it. I'm really going to have to work on losing my next 10 pounds - my reward is a Nintendo DS or Guitar Hero, so this may just be the incentive! (And Guitar Hero will have to wait for another 10 pounds to go away.)

I can't imagine it will be as detailed as the computer version.

But if it comes out for the Wii, it's just as well, seeing as our computer could not possibly manage the next standard Civ PC iteration, and all of its increased computing/video power demands.

Every time I see the title, I think of Dance Dance Revolution.  Will there be dancing and cool music.

I can't even think of buying a new game any time soon.  Lego Star Wars has me in its grip.

I'll take you up on that as soon as my kids have a clean bill of health.  They're both recovering from pink eye and now they have colds or something.  Our house is a mess right now.  Isaac was really dissapointed we couldn't go bowling, so we need to get together for that as well.
