$14.99 is very steep for an iOS game, even for an A+ title. I think I'll wait till it goes on sale!

Well, I don' have a problem with the price - if you ask me it's better that people get out of the habit of expecting iPad games to be super cheap, from the point of view of someone who wants console/PC quality games on them.

This game, however, looks pants. I couldn't stand the original, with its irritating graphical and audio style and simplified, boring gameplay. I can see they've kept at least one of those.

I really loved the original CivRev - I absolutely played it to death. I actually bought it twice - once for iPad, once for iPhone; that's how much I loved it.

This new version is total pants. It is the exact same game as the last version, wrapped in a new and very, very awkward to use 3D shell. The selection and movement interface is really awful - you never really know what your tap is going to do (am I going to select the unit I tap on, or is there some other unit selected that I can't see and I'm going to command them to trek across the world to here?). That makes it really slow and difficult to actually play the game.

At the same time, they haven't expanded at all on the limitations of the original CivRev. There are no new gameplay mechanics (like Religion) or more complex diplomacy options (like defensive pacts, alliances, or open borders), and you still can't destroy cities.

This is clearly just a new skin on the existing, very old game. The AI is exactly the same; it's just as predictable as before. Every civilisation you meet will declare war on you - no matter how far away you are (even if you have no borders or are totally inaccessible from their region), how much bigger or stronger you are. It gets tiring quickly, and CivRev players learn to avoid other civilisations very quickly. That still happens in this game.

In short: I am massively disappointed. This is a 3D skin update for the original, tired CivRev. It's actually been made a significantly worse game by the new control system. Save your money and buy the original - it's much more enjoyable.

Yeah these guys crying about the prices are pretty lame. This is a game Not an app. A game that would cost 60$ on a console. And You cann get it for a quarter of the price and multiplatform. Playable for the rest of your lives without needing any console .
