Civilization Revolution 2 Now Available for Android

How many 4X strategy games can you name on the Android platform (or iOS)? Not a lot, I am sure. This is a genre that is sorely lacking in my opinion (almost as bad as old school, first person dungeon crawlers). 2K Games have now added one more 4X strategy title to the extremely short ... Read More»
