With Revolution, the legendary Sid Meier put together the most streamlined and accessible iteration of the digital crack-cocaine that he passes off as an innocent turn-based strategy/sim series. Cutting the length and complexity of the PC versions brought this to the console and portables in a huge way, getting an entirely new crowd hooked and paving the way for the strategy genre's future. You, too, can be a sim geek!

This game will crush your life. Stay far, far away if you know what's good for you.
