The old Civ mantra of “one more turn” is stronger than ever. The additions make for a much deeper strategy game and the inclusion of most of the features from previous entries makes for a remarkably well-rounded launch. It will be interesting to see where Civ VI goes, but I have a feeling there won’t be nearly as dramatic a change as Civ V saw.
TJ HAFEROct 20, 2016
Sight, sound, and systems harmonize to make Civilization 6 the liveliest, most engrossing, most rewarding, most challenging 4X in any corner of the earth.
Sean EngemannOct 24, 2016
The learning curve is steep for new players, and the new features will disorient veterans for the first few matches. But once you grasp the concepts, you won't want to loosen your grip on the mouse.
Stuart ThomasNov 05, 2016
Suffice to say, this is a feature-rich and immersive iteration where attention to detail in design is apparent from the first turn and systems you didn't even realise could be significantly improved have been infused with a spark of genius. True, the AI is a woeful mess and it's lacking a few tooltips but there is none of the hollowness that Civ V had on release.
Mike WilliamsOct 25, 2016
Civilization VI is a worthy sequel for the franchise. Firaxis has crafted the best vanilla version in the franchise's history, with a host of leaders, a great soundtrack, some keen art direction, and new features like the city expansion. There's not much missing this time around and I look forward to seeing what Firaxis adds to an already amazing game.
Lydia TangOct 30, 2016
Overall, Civilization VI brings the franchise to an unbelievable level of polish and streamlined complexity. With a few minor errors, Civilization VI’s fresh mechanics force you to adapt and change your strategy as you play. There is more playing and less waiting, as there are important decisions to make at every stage of the game and the loading time between turns is shorter.
Chris WrayNov 12, 2016
Civilization VI is the pinnacle of the series. It's featured huge, sweeping changes, and nothing was left out. Everything has found a purpose, they all work together in tandem but also have a reason to stand alone. Only slight AI issues can be found here, but nothing every other 4X or Grand Strategy game hasn't encountered on a worse level. Civilization VI is, frankly, the best 4X strategy game in the world.
Dan StapletonOct 26, 2016
Civilization VI will go down in history as the most fully-featured launch version in the series. Many of those are smartly revamped versions of Civ classics, but it finds its own identity with great new ideas like spread-out cities, customizeable governments, research boosts, and leader agendas. And even though the AI has some improving to do, it can put up enough of a fight to make world domination a challenge.
Scott ButterworthOct 24, 2016
Civ 6 has a few rough edges, but they’re pushed far into the periphery by spectacular strategic depth and intricate interlocking nuances. Any frustrations I experienced were immediately eclipsed by my desire to continue playing. Just one more turn, every turn, forever.
Sophie HallidayNov 03, 2016
This is an astounding game. Civilization has always been associated as the benchmark for strategy gaming, and Civilization VI is now at the peak. This is as good as it gets.
Atle WilliathamDec 02, 2016
Civilization VI is the best strategy game available on the market and a must-buy for everyone who enjoys a good strategy game. It improves and revitalizes the franchise on so many levels. This might be one of the strongest Game of the Year contenders.
Sean HannleyOct 26, 2016
Veterans of the series, newcomers and children will all find a great deal to like here. The Civilization franchise is now 25 years old and much has happened to the genre in the meantime. Civilization VI couldn’t be a more terrific love letter to the franchise. The dynamic and reactive nature of the gameplay, while maintaining and refining all of the elements that make Civilization the game that it is, creates a distinctly new and fun experience in a much-beloved setting.
Tom ChickNov 02, 2016
I’m looking for more than just a laid back single-player cities builder with the AI frittering idly in the margins. I cut my teeth on Sid Meier’s grand strategy without a brain-dead tactical layer drizzled over the top. I admire a lot of what Firaxis is doing to move on from the mess of Civilization V. They’re headed in the right direction, even if they are dragging a lot of baggage.
Ben ReevesOct 25, 2016
Sean Bean does a killer job narrating your every achievement, but the music is a far cry from the glory of previous entries . The strategies around building your empire are nearly limitless, but with so many moving parts, Civilization VI presents a steep learning curve for newcomers. Civilization remains as addictive as ever. As soon as you start building your empire, say goodbye to your weekend.
Joshua VanderwallOct 27, 2016
Civ VI has improved upon nearly every system and mechanic in the game, at no real cost to the experience. It's the easiest Civ to play, but it's also the most complex Civ to date. There's enough default automation that you can ignore a lot of the minutia if you want, but micromanagers like myself will still have all the tedium they can dream of. There's nothing quite as satisfying as pillaging every single tile in an aggressive neighbor's civilization.
Jonathan LeackOct 26, 2016
This is a captivating game, one that consumes your time and gives back more than you put in. It’ll test your ability to make sound decisions, and anticipate the future. While diplomacy and numbers tuning will be required to combat some of the frustration that the game brings, this is yet another outstanding 4X game from Firaxis Games that will undoubtedly become one of the most popular PC titles for the years to come.
Tyler SpectreNov 05, 2016
Civilization VI is most definitely the best base-game installment of the franchise yet. There are so many gameplay mechanics included here that it feels like it’s already had a large expansion. I can’t wait to see what Firaxis could possibly add to improve on an already spectacular and complete game. But as much as I hate to say it, with so much to learn this is one of the least accessible games in the series for newcomers. Still, with beautiful visuals,step-up in AI competence, and so much to do, for returning players this is the best Civilization game in history.
Chris LeebodyNov 04, 2016
It is definitely the most fulfilling and enjoyable Civilization to date, and with Firaxis tendency to add expansions and updates to their products, it can only get better from this point onward. Some irritating issues do exist, such as religion and some slight AI deficiencies, but these are minor complaints in a title that is so easy to get addicted to that it is scary. The strategy crown remains with Sid Meier, and it is hard to see any challengers conquering his empire in the near future.
Bengt LemneOct 25, 2016
We always get hooked on Civilization when a new game launches, and it's not until six months or maybe a year on that we'll know if this is the best one in the series to date, but the potential is definitely there for that to be true. It's deeper than ever and also plays quicker than ever - a combination that's truly an accomplishment. As another dawn rises we're already planning ahead for our next session.
gamesTMDec 17, 2016
Steps have been taken to clarify the thought processes of your opposing civs, but this doesn’t stop them being erratic, difficult to deal with, and at times just plain unfair. It’s a shortcoming that does detract from the overall experience, but not quite enough to stop that ‘one more turn’ addiction from setting in all over again.
Dave IrwinOct 21, 2016
Civilization VI is my new favourite addiction that I honestly can’t really fault. Each of the gameplay changes provides a fresh challenge, but they were well worth undertaking once they clicked. It’s packed full of the stuff that made the previous games great, but also has a crisp style that makes things clear enough when the game gets extremely busy. As such, the vanilla version of Civilization VI is so good, expansions aren’t really necessary to improve upon it. Having said that, I’m excited for what’s next.
Robert ZakOct 20, 2016
It'll take a few balance patches and expansions before it achieves absolute perfection, but the list of wholesale changes Civ VI brings to the storied formula makes for an instantly sumptuous strategy treat.
GameCentralOct 26, 2016
Unparalleled depth and versatility, that allows for far more creativity and uncertainty in every game. Surprisingly accessible, decent presentation, and the best multiplayer so far. An excellent sequel, that manages to evolve the series in terms of both accessibility and complexity, and maintain its place as one of the best strategy games of all time.
Chris WhiteOct 27, 2016
The art style is cartoony, but it works and the music is rousing. After an uplifting and gorgeous introduction cinematic, I was ready to build an empire and take over the world. I’m sure I will sink many more hours into this, and finally make my way into space. If I have any criticism, it’s that there is so much to learn, it doesn’t always explain it the best way it could, or really should. Many will spend a lot of time in the tutorial and also in the early stages of the game, but when everything snaps into place, Civilization 6 is a rewarding and wonderful experience.
Mike CosimanoOct 24, 2016
Civilization VI is just as addictive and as rewarding as its predecessor. If that’s what you came to hear, then you have my blessing to run out and spend another fifty hours dunking on the Aztecs. Civilization VI’s network of interlocking systems is made even more intuitive by its visual design, constantly keeping players above water as they explore what the game has to offer. With a rewarding, achievable goal constantly in view, every step on the road towards victory feels immensely satisfying.
Carlos G. GurpeguiOct 25, 2016
Civilization VI es la sublimación de la saga consiguiendo un complejo equilibrio entre un título más asequible para el novato y un cambio complejo para el más veterano. Aquél amante de los títulos de Firaxis volverá a caer en el terrible síndrome de “un turno más” y verá disminuir drásticamente sus horas de sueño. Suerte.
Jorge S. FernándezOct 26, 2016
Un excelente ejemplo de cómo se puede mejorar un juego que flirteaba con la perfección en anteriores entregas. Este Civilization VI se convierte sin duda en el mejor exponente de su género y en un título imprescindible para todo amante de la estrategia.
Alberto PastorOct 27, 2016
Un fantástico videojuego de estrategia por turno que hace honor al lema "un turno más y termino", conservando intactas las grandes señas de identidad de la franquicia a la vez que aporta importantes novedades que le sientan genial. Una vez lo pruebas ya no quieres jugar a otra cosa. Tal es la grandeza de un título que llega con una gran corona de oro bajo el brazo. El rey de la estrategia ha vuelto con intención de no irse jamás.
Francisco Alberto Serrano AcostaOct 25, 2016
CIV 6 es el título más completo y atractivo en su versión original de la era Firaxis, esa es la conclusión más rápida y directa que podemos ofrecer. Estamos acostumbrados a ver como cada Civilization reciente empieza bien para acabar mucho mejor, pero con esta sexta entrega hemos comenzado realmente bien.
Javi SánchezNov 09, 2016
Lo mejor es que esto no es una herejía: es el sueño de Sid Meier llevado a 2016. Es aprender que hay otro camino, otras herramientas y otra forma de entender eso que quiso hacer hace dos décadas. Y con una libertad para resolver situaciones fantástica: si Sumeria te lleva la delantera científica, por ejemplo -puede ser militar, cultural o religiosa, también.
Sara BorondoOct 30, 2016
Después del capítulo diferente que supuso Beyond Earth, la serie Civilization vuelve a su ambientación más clásica, la que atrapa a los jugadores un título tras otro y les hace estar pegados a la pantalla mientras esperan que llegue el siguiente turno y se repiten a sí mismos que sólo jugarán "un turno más". Esta frase se ha convertido ya en el lema de Civilization y no ha perdido vigencia 25 años después de que los jugadores empezaran a pensarla.
Luis López ZamoranoNov 21, 2019
Civilization VI llega a PS4 y Xbox One conservando toda la esencia de su versión de PC. La interfaz y los controles han sido adaptados de maravilla y no cuesta demasiado hacerse con ellos en poco tiempo. Además, las expansiones Rise and Fall y Gathering Storm también han llegado en un pack conjunto que se puede conseguir por separado para añadir más contenido al título. Civilization VI para consolas no tiene nada que envidiar a la versión de PC y os divertirá sin límite de horas si sois fans de la estrategia y la gestión.
Alonso ZamoraOct 25, 2016
Francamente, toda reseña de Civilization VI está destinada a no hacerle justicia a un juego que toma centenares de horas en ser dominado, y que está destinado a dar diversión a la gente durante décadas, como ha sido el caso de todos sus predecesores. Como la primera lasca de pedernal o el proyecto Apolo, Civilization es uno de los grandes frutos de la inteligencia humana. Es uno de los dones y de las creaciones geniales por las que hay que estar agradecidos y asombrados, una de las buenas costumbres que nos quedan.
Jörg LuiblOct 26, 2016
Civilization 6 ist ein gutes und angenehm umfangreiches Strategiespiel alter Schule. Man erlebt nicht nur Aufbau, Forschung und Kampf, sondern es gibt auch Religion, Spionage sowie Tourismus und sehr nützliche Stadtstaaten - hinzu kommen sympathische Kleinigkeiten wie Archäologen auf Grabungen.
Michael GrafOct 15, 2016
Der Umfang stimmt, die hervorragend verzahnte Mechanik strotzt vor spannenden Wechselwirkungen, und das Politiksystem sowie die Heureka-Booster laden zum Experimentieren ein. Das macht die Partien abwechlungsreicher, dynamischer. Civ 6 spielt sich vertraut und zugleich anders genug, um wieder nächtelang zu fesseln - wie ich es von einer guten Fortsetzung erwarte.
Robert HähnelNov 01, 2016
Civilization 6 ist eine Überraschung. Es ist und spielt sich so neu, wie sich ein Civilization anfühlen und spielen kann. Firaxis hat es geschafft, dass wir nicht mehr nur mit althergebrachten Taktiken durch eine Partie kommen, sondern auch freundlich dazu gebracht werden, hin und wieder mal ein paar neue Wege zu gehen. Ganz rund läuft Civilization 6 dabei nicht immer, es ist vor allem die künstliche Intelligenz der Gegner, die teilweise enttäuscht.
Damien GreffetOct 28, 2016
Civilization VI est un excellent jeu ; probablement le meilleur de la série même. Référence incontestée et incontestable du 4X au tour par tour, le jeu de Firaxis continue de pousser plus loin les possibilités du genre. Devenir un maître se mérite et comme aux échecs, il faudra passer par un certain investissement en temps avant de bien manier les multiples outils offerts par le jeu.
[87]Oct 26, 2016
En empruntant certains éléments à une concurrence ayant mis à mal l'hégémonie de Civilization sur le monde du 4X, Firaxis est parvenu à redonner ses lettres de noblesse à une licence vieille de 25 ans, qui n'a jamais parue aussi jeune qu'aujourd'hui. Sans être exempte de reproches, cette sixième itération de Civilization propose de nombreux changements et pléthore d'ajustements rendant l'expérience du joueur plus active que jamais.
Camille AllardOct 31, 2016
Civilization VI est donc un jeu très complet, un classique qui perdure et qui arrive pourtant à se réinventer. Bien meilleur que son prédécesseur, aussi bien dans le fond que dans la forme, il s'agit ici pour Firaxis d'une sorte d'aboutissement de la forme 4X. Le nombre de nouveautés et de réinventions (quartiers, cités-états, doctrines, etc.) permet aisément de gommer les défauts comme l'absence de victoire diplomatique et l'IA un peu faiblarde sur certains points.
Loup Lassinat-FoubertOct 27, 2016
En se débarrassant de certaines fausses bonnes idées de Civilization V et en offrant une plus large marge de manoeuvre au joueur, les développeurs nous ont gratifié d’un nouvel épisode particulièrement réussi, qui tient à lui seul la dragée haute à son prédécesseur et ses extensions. Rythmé, ingénieux, promettant des parties qui savent se renouveler malgré les options de paramétrages un peu faiblardes, Civilization VI impose son style et son savoir-faire du premier coup.
Simone TagliaferriOct 26, 2016
Ciò che rende Sid Meier's Civilization VI un capolavoro non è una singola meccanica o la sua capacità di tenerti incollato allo schermo turno dopo turno. No, ciò che lo rende tale è il suo saper accompagnare le scelte del giocatore in modo naturale, senza cioè risultare mai arbitrario negli effetti decisioni prese. Anche le tanto temute novità si sono infine rivelate come perfettamente integrate nel gameplay, donandogli una grande freschezza, nonostante i capisaldi della serie siano stati mantenuti.
Daniele SpeltaOct 27, 2016
Civilization VI is what we wanted: a worthy heir of the most famous strategic series, which not only reiterates all the strengths so appreciated by the fans, but manages to improve in many areas, thanks to fresh introductions, well integrated with each other, able to speed up the game but not to make it more simple.
Fabio BortolottiOct 28, 2016
Il miglior Civilization dell'era Firaxis, nonché il miglior episodio dai tempi del secondo. Accessibile ai neofiti, ma al tempo stesso ricco e complesso come piace ai veterani. Civilization VI è incredibile, anche così, senza le espansioni che inevitabilmente vedremo nei prossimi anni. Graficamente delizioso, rifinito a livello di gameplay, profondo come un vortice temporale che inghiotte notti e weekend. Perfetto per chi ama la strategia, adatto a chi vuole assaggiarla per la prima volta.
Георгий КопьевOct 29, 2016
Sid Meierʼs Civilization VI — большая и сложная игра. Она требует вдумчивого кропотливого изучения и сможет надолго прописаться в топы своего жанра, дав студии Firaxis достаточно времени на создание «Цивилизации» нового поколения. Именно так — нового поколения. Ни больше ни меньше. Потому что какой бы крутой ни была Civilization VI, седьмая часть уже встанет комом в горле.
Олег ЗайцевOct 28, 2016
Только в Civilization Шумер, Конго и Скифия могут бороться за право первыми запустить искусственный спутник Земли. В тот конкретный раз победили в итоге немцы, но это уже ненужная подробность. Civilization – это генератор бесконечных историй о том, как русские или французы появились в горах или лесах, а потом сотню лет пробивались к океану.
Furkan SakoğluOct 21, 2016
Yapay zekayı da bir kenara koyduktan sonra oyunun belki de en çok sevdiğim kısmına, müziklerine gelmek istiyorum. Ya Firaxis, sen ne güzel müzik kulağı olan bir yapımcısın. Ben ki birçok oyunda müzikleri kısan biri olarak neredeyse bütün Civilization oyunlarında son ses yapıyorum. Müzikler öylesine güzel ki, böyle oyunu bırakıp arkaya yaslanıp dinlediğim oldu. Hele Mozart'ın Greensleeves'i girdiğinde, aklım başımdan gitti.
Reinoud SchaatsbergenOct 31, 2016
Het enige wat ik nog wil, zelfs na mijn zestig uur speeltijd, is weer spelen. De magie van het ontdekken, het plannen van je stadsdistricten, het min-maxen van de eureka’s, het inrichten van je eigen overheid; ieder onderdeel van de game is verweven in een diepgaand systeem dat je beloont voor het uitstippelen van een plan.
Koen StienstraOct 31, 2016
Civilization 6 is een waardige opvolger van Civilization 5. De game draait erg soepel zonder enige problemen, op de enkele freeze na. De game blijft een genot om te spelen en fans van de vorige edities zullen ook in deze nieuwste editie weer ontelbare uren gaan doorbrengen.
Michał LisieckiOct 23, 2016
Pora powiedzieć to głośno: mamy tu do czynienia z najprawdopodobniej najlepszą jak dotąd odsłoną serii. Oczywiście, pod względem innowacyjności i świeżości nic nie jest – i być może nigdy nie będzie – w stanie przebić przełomowej części pierwszej. Niemniej, Civilization VI, ze swoją dopracowaną mechaniką, niezwykłą strategiczną głębią oraz multum nowych, intrygujących rozwiązań śmiało może stać na szczycie podium jako najlepsza Cywilizacja, w jaką można dziś zagrać.
Adam ZechenterOct 25, 2016
Czy Cywilizacja VI jest lepsza od premierowej wersji „piątki” – bez dwóch zdań. Czy jest lepsza od piątej odsłony z dwoma dodatkami i najlepszymi modyfikacjami? Jeszcze nie – choć jest też inna. To solidny fundament, bodaj najbardziej udany w cyklu, ale do ideału potrzeba koniecznie poprawić sztuczną inteligencję i może jeszcze trochę rozbudować rozgrywkę. Jestem pewien, że za rok będziemy mieć najlepszą strategię 4X na rynku. Do tego czasu jest „tylko” bardzo dobra.
