From what ive read, the idea behind it is similar but itll be dumbed down quite a bit for the FB market.

I remember when it came out on the Amiga...... many wasted hours :)

Personally it looks awful, they've cartoon'd the graphics up and basically made it a farmville style game.

If they'd taken the play by email concept in Civ IV which was pretty popular and for some strange reason isn't in CiV V and made a proper version of the game in flash or sliverlight or even html5/css3/canvas which then was play by facebook for each turn I would be all over that.

Great for a FB game, really bad for die hard fans. Accept it is working out of a web browser so credit to how much they have achieved.

I have played it a couple times and it is not as addictive as I had hoped, the game is very social focused on gaining achievements and research etc, which I havent quite worked out to fully optimise.

Also I am still trying to start a fight with someone! But no idea where / how you go in to battle.
