The CIVILIZATION REVOLUTION iPhone app (there's a different one for iPad) is less graphically spectacular than the console version of the same game, but it's still an incredibly deep and immersive experience in which you can conquer the world via war, technology, or culture. The iPhone's small screen makes it a bit more difficult to keep track of a global empire, but this isn't a quick pick-up-and-play game to begin with. Approach it with the right amount of patience and focus and you'll get the full historical simulation experience. Civilization Revolution is such a big game that it's a difficult one to translate into a mobile app, but the job was done remarkably well.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
