Is Pirates any good? How is the gameplay (strategy or adventure/action oriented?)?

I have waited a full year for Civilization to finally go on sale, best news ever. (Now if only Square Enix would lower Final Fantasy III). Thanks for posting, goiMot!

Civ Rev is watered down micro compared to PC counterpart. There is a lite/trail version for you to try.

Kind of disappointed they dropped updating Civ Rev. As far as I've heard, it doesn't even have retina display ._. very disappointing.

Ridiculously buggy and laggy, especially on our 2nd gens. Updates to fix these problems were rolled out extremely slowly (and even still, some newer devices still have some problems as seen in App Store reviews), and some of the more major bugs still have not been fixed (crashes after finishing games occasionally without saving the game result, numbers on jerseys don't change when you change a line, and more).

For .99, I guess it's a decent buy as there are no other real hockey sims in the App Store, but considering you have a 2nd gen, don't expect too much bang out of your buck. Even if it's only a buck.

About Civ. Rev. HD I saw a lot of comments about how crashy it is... Is that really the case ? I have an iPad 2, maybe it's an iPad 1 problem only... 'Cause I'm really interested in the game.
