Great Game That Has A Lot Of Educational Value!!!

A Great Strategy Game That Definitely Does Not Deserve 3 In Violence. The Only Violence There Is Are Toy Swords Waving And Toy Guns Firing From Far Away. How Can This Be 1 Violence Star Off From Thousands Of PG-13 Movies And Have The Same Amount For Half Of Them. For Example In Star Wars 3 A Character Is Burned In Lava, Shocked With Lighting, Kills Children And It Is Not Animated. Does That Seem As Bad As Animated Small Swords Waving And People Falling From Far Away. Ridiculous Do NOT Presume That Common Sense Media Is Accurate On Their Ratings Ever.

The best in strategy and history for kids!

Fantastic playability over and over again and a great intro to strategy games on and off the screen. Historical figures, places, objects, technologies and landmarks are great conversation starters to get kids engaged in history off the screen, too.

Best Civ. Game for DS

No question here, this is an amazing Sim game. The computer versions are better, of course, but for the portable DS, this is the one to buy! It is challenging enough to keep adults entertained, and the easiest mode is accessible to older kids.
