I have little to say other than Civ 6 has kept me entertained for now tens of hours and keeps me hooked every time i launch it back up.
While I originally disliked the game at launch, the frequent updates, Rise and Fall expansion and mods have brought the game to a fantastic state. The AI works well (and can be further moded to be harder or easier, to change it’s decision patterns etc… ot your liking), the civilizations are all very unique and allow for a good mix of gameplay and frankly the overall experience is most enjoyable! Civ 6 has simplified and streamline lots of micro from Civ 5 and added in tons of planning complexitiy through its districts sytem and adjecency bonuses.
In my mind it’s not about comparing Civ 5 and Civ 6 as they are relatively different games but rather admitting that Civ 6 brings soemthing new and fresh to the Civ forumula and it works well hour after hour.
Recommended, especially if like me, you have been putting off Civ 6 due to it’s strong design changes from Civ 5.
A lot of people compare Civ VI to Civ V the complete edition, which by lengths is unfair. Civ VI is by far better than the base game of Civ V without the expansions. In due, time we’ll all watch this game flourish even more with the introduction of expansions. Civ VI has breath taking graphics in comparison to any other game of this category in my opinion. I’m comparing this to most 4X games such as Endless Legend, Sorcerer King and previous Civ games.
I must also compliment the new combat focus, it’s by far one of the most engaging I’ve come across in a long time. The AI feels more balanced and gives a deeper depth to the game, multiplayer is a lot of fun with good friends for playful banter or a more serious approach. Barbarians are as annoying as ever xD and more aggressive than what I remember in my 175 hours of Civ V. As a fan for 4x games, I’m impressed by this game as a whole; there are a lot of positive points in Civ VI. Please don’t let others alter your thinking about a fantastic game.
