Anyone considering this one?  Best Buy has it for $39.99 this week.

I've got my hands full with NASCAR 09, March Madness 08, NBA Live 08, MX vs ATV, and NCAA Football 09 will be out next week. I haven't even had a chance to play GRAW 2 lately.

I really wanted to get Civilization Revolution, but not sure I wanted to spend another $60 right now with NCAA coming out next week.  I thought the price of this one was enticing, and the gameplay different enough from anything else I have, and may check it out.  I will probably wait for some user reviews first, however.

I really enjoyed the Civ demo.

Too much button mashing for me. I might give it a rent.

I saw it being played in my local Gamestop today and I have to admit, it "looks" pretty.  I was watching a swimming event and I had to do a doubletake to make sure it wasn't video footage of the real thing.  It did seem like the same old button mashing prevelant in earlier incarnations of Olympic video games.

That being said, I bought Civ Revolutions.
