    Same Same - New name (and new look).

    The game is great. As civ5 was. Nice and shiny new look, some changes about the culture and policies (didn't quite understood it fully yet), technology is the same. Diplomacy is very similar. Units are similar. Small ch... Read Full Review

    Changed. But not improved.

    The Civilization series reminds me in some ways of Windows. After a great version a mediocre follows. This happened with Civilization VI. This game had great ambitions. But following a perfect predecessor it failed great... Read Full Review

    Things added, but they only took away from the game play.

    The game feels like layers were added that were not needed. The culture tree just feels like a way of selling the game, but in truth it is just the tech tree pulled out for an extra layer. The diplomacy feels off, odd th... Read Full Review

    Needs work

    Civilization games are properly reviewed after putting hundreds of hours in, not a merely a few dozen that obviously some of the reviewers, and even critic reviews are obviously not played enough to see the glaring issu... Read Full Review

    Wait for awhile

    Normally I wait for a few months before buying a new release but I have been a big Civ fan since the original. Still on first play through but a couple of comments. The diplomacy seems completely broken. I have no idea h... Read Full Review

    A beefed up version of Civ 5

    I'm by no means an expert or seasoned veteran of city building games. I enjoy them but play them somewhat superficially as I'm a terrible military strategist. I did enjoy Civ 5, and Civ 6 feels like more of the same, for... Read Full Review

    Great Early Access Release

    The Civ Franchise has always been a staple of my 4x games. I sat on the fence when I saw the huge price tag for Civ IV. But on release I decided to take the plunge, after all it Civ how bad can it be. Well if this was an... Read Full Review

    Serious AI problems are rooted deep

    It has been tough for me to admit to myself that Civilization 6 is, in its essentials, a fundamentally broken game. I have been playing the Civilization games since Civ II/ Alpha Centauri. I have also, in between release... Read Full Review

    Hype train to Nowhere

    Brain-dead AI, unappealing visuals, bad interface and non-functional dimplomacy. Classical hype train milking the former, long gone glory of a famous franchise. One would expect that people will eventually learn, but no,... Read Full Review

    All the Civ you love, but with A LOT of new depth

    Like most reviewers have said: This is still Civ. If you played Civ5, then everything you know about the combat and diplomacy is the same.The tech tree has been split into two trees now (Civic and Tech), with a LOT of ne... Read Full Review

    Same Old, Some New

    World design and animation improved a bit, linking units is a plus, thou they could make trading caravan linkable also. User interface is terrible and not at all complementary with world design. If you didn't prerecord n... Read Full Review
