    Sounds like it will be a deep and satisfying game like Civilization 5. ;)

    Civilization 5: The phone-y Civ. Lol

    Anyway, it's only a matter of time before the console version is announced. Baby steps.

    a phone version doesn't do much for me, but iPad could be interesting...assuming it's not totally dumbed down

    Why all the hate, who knows, maybe they actually figured out ways of optimizing it to run like something similar to strategic view and this isn't just some bogus super dubbed down phone game.

    However "Based on the award-winning" doesn't have me too optimistic.

    A smart-phone is way more powerful, and has a better display, than the computers we used to play the first civ on.

    Yes. It's award-winning. 2K spent a lot of money bribing reviewers. This+intro movie > gameplay budget:lol:

    Whatever. Everyone's a critic, right? My wife plays civ rev on her phone while playing hotseat with me, so she's excited.

    And Civ 5 is awesome. Seriously, the way some of you talk, you would think you single-handedly coded Diablo 2. Sheesh.

    Well, fortunately the "strategic" aspect of this version can't be reduced any further without getting legal problems from the farmville developers :lol:

    And if they manage to port it for iOS and Co. without any loss I would buy it! A real civ for handhelds would be great, unlike these "jelly bear - games" (Civ Rev and this *censored* real-time-facebook thingy)

    Settlers of Catan (Siedler von Catan, dunno the exact translation) also works pretty fine as app, so why not a civ ... :goodjob:

    Comeon there must be still a bit of room at the top for another MMO FBS game (FBS = faceroll based strategy)

    The Farmville equivalent is CivWorld, I presume ;)

    But I wouldn't mind Civ5 coming to the phone :)
    It's probably nicer than Civ-game I have on my phone now, FreeCiv

    I quoted that mostly because it says "based on" which to me just means they bought the rights to tack on the CiV name on something and god knows what we will actually get...

    Metacritic has it saying they sold over 9 million copies and 90% critic review score out of 70 critics that reviewed it when it was much buggier than it currently is now... If they bribed people to give it good reviews, they bribed A LOT of people.

    I find it kinda' difficult to imagine how Civ could actually be Civ and still run on a phone.

    Yeah, I know Dual core, 1GB RAM smartphones are not all that rare, but considering how much horsepower Civ5 needs, I wonder how much can actually be done on a phone. Not to mention a 4" screen does not sound appealing to play a Civ game on.

    9 million copies?

    Where are they getting that information from?

    That's the cumulative number for the entire series, not Civ 5.

    I vaguely remember "7 million" as the pre-launch publicity number for Civ 1-4, and "4 million" as Civ 4 and her daughters. So that would make the lesser Civ as a 2 million seller, or about half of the prior entry.

    Civ Rev 2 on the Android/iPhone (only simpler)....wonderful.

    EDIT: the only way I can see the total number as being that large is if all expansions, and maybe DLCs, count as separate sales.

    Personally I don't find it hard to believe that CiV outsold it's other sisters. I find it even easier to believe that it's been a hell of a lot more profitable than CIV(digital distribution is an entirely new beast). Neither of these numbers reflect the quality of the game.
