DS version

has anyone played the DS version yet? Any impressions from anyone? The concept of Civ on a portable is a great idea.  I really hope its not a watered down version.

We bought both the PS3 and the DS versions of Civ: Revolution.  Both play exactly the same.  The DS version is obviously missing a lot of animation, and the civilopedia is either missing or hard to find (I haven't found it), but the game play is identical.

And addicting.

Our DS has basically turned into a Civ machine, is what I'm trying to say.

That's good to hear. I was wondering if the DS version was worth getting.

Does the DS version have single cart play for multiplayer? 

That would be great

I think there's a trailer up on IGN, so far it looks pretty impressive.

I hadn't heard it was on the DS.  Civilization was one of the first PC games I ever played.  Aww.

It was also one of my first PC games that i played long ago. I got excited to hear their was going to be a portable version.

The small screen and limited controls make some things a bit harder in the DS version, like managing your army stacks, but it's still quite playable. It also has better post-game statistics and a replay feature, which the bigger versions don't have at all. An incredibly addicting game on all platforms.
