With the exception of the missing online play, Civ VI is - for better or worse - a faithful and complete port of the PC experience. It’s disappointing to be stuck primarily playing with AI but there’s a lot to love about Civ VI’s single player experience, and playing on Switch turns out to be a solid way to experience the rise and fall of entire civilizations.
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.
The Switch is slowly getting a whole pantheon of great ports of everything from indie hits to old PC frontrunners and Civilization VI is another proud example of just that. While the lack of the extra goodies that are on the PC is irksome, it is far from a deal breaker. The civilizations and the gameplay that is in this version of the game is still more than enough to keep you satisfied for a long, long while. Just don’t hog the bathroom all the time.
