In case you’ve been missing out on the latest and greatest Civilization game, you should check out Civilization Revolution. It’s been out for a week and its a lot of fun. Keep in mind I’m a bit biased, having done some coding work on it, but still it may be the best creative work of all time in this and any parallel universe.
In all seriousness, the game really does a nice job of moving all that civ goodness to consoles. Its still got that “just one more turn” feeling that makes the series so compelling. Keep in mind that the main man Sid Meier was at the helm, so you know its good.
