    Just picked it up on Friday July 11 and I can not put it down. I really liked the demo so I went and picked it up. Now my wife is hooked, and I forsee some controller wars. If you Risk or sim games like The Sims I recommend this. I am not a big RTS fan but this game is tons of fun. IGN has a better review if you want to read more about the game. I just wanted to take a poll and see how many people bought the game and will be playing online?

    I liked the demo and thought it did a really good job of distilling the PC Civ experience down to something palatable for consoles. But I'm not buying the game, because I have to be veeeeeeery careful in rationing out my Civilization playtime, or I will spend days in front of it, ignoring sleep and hunger. I already have and still play Civ 4, and that is good enough for me.

    must avoid it, if anything that makes me skip breakfast, lunch and even supper, this game will be it.

    I was really disapointed in the DS version of the game. Succeeding in just about anything was -way- to easy.

    I played the demo, and it's very well done for a console version of a classic series.

    But that said, I don't have the money to buy games right now. What I used to spend getting a game or two every month has now gone to paying for gasoline for the car. So right now it's only the "most anticipated" games I'll be buying until gas prices start becoming reasonable again.

    Saving up now for my Sept. purchases of Spore and Force Unleashed.

    I have never played a Civ game, downloaded the demo and really liked it. It's a really good demo, nice and long so you get a good taste of it. I want to play the full game but can wait until the price comes down a bit and or I can get it used for a few bucks off.

    I have it for the 360 and I love it. It's been quite a while since I stayed up to 3 AM just to play a game (until now).

    No PSP version FTL - the one handheld it would be perfect on.

    Because PSP rules compared to the DS, obviously. I could give a shit about touch controls; I want better graphics and more content with this game.

    Sadly, I will probably buy the DS version, since I have no choice.

    If PSP and DS had a fist fight, PSP would win on principle alone. And then still beat the shit out of the DS because it's so much more badass. And it doesn't like to be touched. DS is gay.
