I’m not quite understanding where all this is coming from. Have they maybe mistaken it for Civ 5?
At this point, maybe don’t bother, unless you get it on a good sale. Civ 6 is cute, that’s really the best thing I can say about it at this point, and that’s sort of sad considering my long history with Civ. Many others seem to be feeling the same.
I hope I’m given reason to reverse this sentiment in the future.
Yes, very cute.
If you have beaten Civ V 100 times and at higher difficulty levels and just needed a fix and something different? Ya. this works. It’s a generally good game. Have to say though… Civ V is still better in almost every possible way. Civ V is even just as appealing graphically. But honestly this game cannot muster the foreboding you can feel in Civ V. The AI in Civ V just feels alive and as though it is genuinely plotting to beat you. I just don’t get that feeling in Civ VI. Also, Civ V has WAY better quotes for the artworks and achievements and the narrator is much better in Civ V than in this game (and I love Sean Bean so I don’t say that easily). Fun game though. Worth a play through. Pretty to look at. But Civ V is the last name in Civilization IMO.
Be sure you aren’t playing this game with friends in multiplayer over longer sessions in multiple sittings, or PRAY TO RNGESUS THAT NO ONE DISCONNECTS. Why? Because each time you all say your ‘Goodnight’s and ‘Talk to you later’s only to come back to the main host’s save file again later the next day or so, you will be greeted by the inability to have half if not all the other players unable to load into the Host’s game, waiting 20 minutes for a load, or every other player besides the host finally loading in only to find that the handy-dandy AI took over for the turn that ‘They failed to load into at the start’ and sold all of their units.
10/10 game for it’s genre.
-480/10 for it’s online multiplayer servers and save state optimization.
