Civ V is much closer to Revolutions than Civ III. (Of note my Rev is on old (to THEM!) itouch, shouldn't be much different BUT...) Civ III is mad cap expansion and crush what is in the way of expansion... meanwhile your constantly trying to find ways to expand but always with one eye toward continued expansion. Civ V and lil bro Rev seem to have a... pacing, or timing built in. Also worth noting, I understand Civ Rev is the first of the series Sid put a hand to since Civ II, with not lot's there as more of a Brian Rynold's tout I hear.

Well as you probably know Civ rev has a quite cartoony feel, more so than other civ games, but civ 5 also has that same feel, personally, i like civ 5 for the amount of content

but civ 3 is a classic, its like comparing ac1 to ac3, or cod black ops 2, to cod 1

It's much older, and it feels like it. I however prefer the older Civs to the newer ones. there is alot more to keep track of on the micromanagement side than the newer ones. Personally, I tried Civ Rev on the xbox 360 but it just couldn't hold my interest when compared to Civ 2. Civ 3 Changed the dynamic from Civ 2 by quite a bit (for the better I think). Beware though the interfacing is totally old-school and feels clunky if you got used to Civ Rev it may be difficult to adapt. For $5 though, it's worth trying!

I remember civ was once one of best seller must play games and anybody who owned a cpu always had it as there go to time killer because civ-3 if played right can kill alot of time I still play civ-3 for that same reason for it back in the day to be a 40 doallar game was awesome because it's major improvments over civ-2 after you play civ-3 and some of the Senerios that is has go ahead buy civ-4 (which in it's day was an amazing game aswell) and play it for a while draw your pros and cons and then hit up civ-5, if you play all civ's 3-5 games and become a fan then you truly will be glad to have play civ-3.

Pfft... Pfftt! You guys...
Civ 2 is a refined version of Civ 1 (and from 2D to 3D)
Civ 3 they overhauled the game and Civ ruleset
Civ 4 is a refined version of Civ 3 (and by far the best IMO)
Civ 5 is... again, a completely overhaul built from scratch. This is the most like Civ Rev, because a lot of the game is "streamlined" (see; dumbed down)

I'd say wait for a sale, and pick up IV if you like a load of detail in your game, or Civ V if you fancy a simpler game (but by far superior to Rev)

The older Civs I-III are mainly played for nostalgia purposes, but II is frickin amazing >;-)

Damn! Theyre all good games...
