World domination comes to those who wait. As do other good things, like the console adaptation of Sid Meier’s turn-based Civilization series, aptly titled Civilization Revolution, as the latest offering departs from its PC-focused predecessor in two significant ways. First it’s quicker. Whereas a multiplayer round of Civilization IV could take eight, 12, even upwards of 20 hours before it reached a resolution, a match in Revolution only takes two or three. But that doesn’t mean the game’s been stripped of its depth. The 16 civilizations, four time periods, randomly generated small-ish maps featuring varied terrain and hosts of barbarians, and an assortment of Wonders and Great People, can make Revolution quite intimidating to new comers.
The Baylis Revolution is a hefty wind up portable media player / MP3 player that features video playback, a photo viewer, an FM radio, a voice recorder, a line input recorder, a text reader, expandable memory and a flashlight. Though its got a crank at the back, it doesn’t mean you can’t charge it using alternative methods, you can do this by charging through its usb port.
