    $18.99 are they high?

      Must be. The first one was harry average and they have the audacity to charge a lobster for this?

      Go back to bed 2K. You're drunk.

      Yeah i enjoyed the first Civ Rev and still play it every so often and I think i paid $15 or so for it.

      But you're paying a premium, THEN they expect you to pay extra for a useless multiplayer mode and extra again for added content. The added content isn't just prettier stuff or extra civs, you're paying to unlock wonders and great people that otherwise sit there in the menu in game with a dollar sign on them. Like you earn a great person in game and it says "you got this great person for some reason, but you need to give us some more money before you can actually use him, he's going to sit over here and wait"

      I'd probably pay the $19 if I thought it was going to buy me the full game. Yeah nah I'll keep playing Civ Rev 1.

    Not really
    There was a quick "run through" with one of the devs, but there was no discussion of "impressions " or opinions at all

    Grabbed this last night for original iPad mini - Pretty horrified.

    1) The performance is just plain unacceptable. My fingers are aching from playing at the stuttering frame rate panning around the map. Pop up menus announce their arrival by freezing what you're doing for multiple seconds before they display. A hundred turns in I was started to dread playing more.

    2) The UI graphical issues are just plain bizarre. There is an awful artefacting present on all the UI, whatever has been done to get it running (barely) on older devices isn't good enough. The image quality of the 3D world itself is perfectly fine.

    3) The game itself has some really strange design. Simple things around selection and turn management are confusing to seasoned civ player on civ 4/5/rev, thats gotta be a worry.

    There is something oddly amateur feeling about it and especially the presentation. The buttons on the MAIN MENU have floating pixels left in the corners of the artwork's image file for God's sake. I can't help but wonder if 2K China were given a bunch of assets from the 2008 console edition and told to see what they could do with little guidance or input, something smells off about the whole thing.
