Any fellow 360/PS3 gamers going to grab up this game?

I played the demo and it is pretty fun!

It reminds me of the original Civilization that my friend use to have... He had it on like four or five 5 1/4" floppy disks... I use to go over and play it all the time.

Anyway, more info and screenshots here:

Been playing Civ IV a lot on the PC. It's a lot of fun. I'm curious to see what people who have played Civ IV think about the console version.

From what I understand the console version is a little 'watered down' compared to the recent PC verisons... A little less micro-managing needed and the games can be completed in much less time.

While I generally like the idea of having more in depth and drawn out games like on the PC version, the slightly more laid back and faster-paced console version sounds like a blast.

I haven't played a game on a PC in YEARS, I really prefer to sit on my couch with a big screen TV and a nice AXIOM surround sound system \:\)

FYI- game is in stores today

I've got this urge to try it. I've never really been one for this type of game (I don't like planning and thinking), but I want to try something different.

St. Pat, if you have xbox 360 and xbox live just download the demo from the market place.

That doesn't sound like much fun. I've been thinking of even more aspects they could add to the game--such as merchant ships instead of mysteriously just having trade between nations. It would be a blast to set up a naval blockade. That would help me against the French right now, since other nations keep selling them technology... how am I supposed to crush them into a paste with my Tanks if they keep getting to upgrade?

No Xbox Live. Never really wanted to pay for it.

I really dig the wireless capability of the PS3. I've never been one for on-line gaming, though. I don't want the rest of the world to know how bad I am at video games. You'd think all these years of playing would eventually pay off?

Have you tried attacking them with deodorant sticks?



Yes, that was a tasteless joke. No intent to offend anyone.
