The biggest dealbreaker in Civ 6 on the Switch is probably that it doesn’t have pass-and-play couch multiplayer, which feels like a big missed opportunity. Online and local multi-console matches can be done, but you won’t be getting competitive in “hot seat mode” as you can in pretty much every other rendition of the series. Even the iOS version has this available, and seems really random that it’s missing here.
Watching - and influencing - how the world unfolds is as addictive as ever, and the boon of portability make this a great way to play. Lack of online play is an obvious disappointment, but the core game works fantastically well on the handheld and we had an absolute blast; take our advice and get stuck in. Also, give Phillip II a wide berth – true to his word, he’ll get your wealth one way or another!
Civilization VI is as brilliant a 4X strategy game on Switch as it is on PC, tablets, or phones. With touch and Joy-Con controls that work reasonably well in both handheld and docked modes, I wouldn't be too upset about an even longer commute because it would give me more time to play a few turns.
