Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, winner of 15 E3 awards including Best Strategy Game, is the next entry in the popular Civilization franchise, which has sold in over 35 million units worldwide, including more than 8 million units of Civilization V.

Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Meier, Civilization is a turn-based strategy game in which you attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time. Become Ruler of the World by establishing and leading a civilization from the Stone Age to the Information Age. Wage war, conduct diplomacy, advance your culture, and go head-to-head with history’s greatest leaders as you attempt to build the greatest civilization the world has ever known.

Civilization VI offers new ways to engage with your world: cities now physically expand across the map, active research in technology and culture unlocks new potential, and competing leaders will pursue their own agendas based on their historical traits as you race for one of five ways to achieve victory in the game.

Review by JustinS

Works Great - As Long as you can read! - I just have to chime in, because these negative reviews are just misleading. The game downloaded for me in twelve minutes and I had no trouble opening or playing it. All of the issues cited by “reviewers” from playability to graphics seem so clearly related to users not noting the system requirements before they download. Graphically it’s everything the game advertises and more (depending on your computer’s ability to process graphics). If you’re not happy with the graphics (either because they’re slow or simple) click the…I don’t know…SETTINGS button to change the GRAPHIC SETTINGS. This is not rocket science people. It’s incredibly easy and I have to say, even at “medium strength” it’s clearly superior, graphically, to Civ V. Can’t wait to play this game for hours upon hours. Great job Aspyr on the port!

Version 1.0.4
Review by skydivingausmunchen

Fun game but need improvement - I wish the feature like production queue can be integrated. When you have an empire of 30+ cities, it is just a pain to click through 15+ productions every turn. Also, for district production, like commercial investment, etc., why can we not just pick one and have it be that way until we want to produce units or buildings, like we can with civ v’s wealth or science? In my opinion, the game would be so much more enjoyable if these two features are built into!

Version 1.0.4
Review by Z&M Fan

Stick with Civilization V - Every once in a while the new version is worse than that p;revious version of a game. This is that instance. Slow, sluggish and overly complicated, this game is not nearly as interesting or fun as Civilization V. I’ll sitck with what works…and keeps me entertained.

Version 1.0.4
Review by 123_nickname

Does not work well with new MBP 2016 13 inch (even exceeding minimum required specs) - The game worked fine on my old MacBook Pro (late 2013). I purchased a new maxed out MBP 2016 13” with the touch bar and I am having graphics issues (for example really bad graphics on the animated leader screens). The computer has the minimum requirements in terms of specs: 3.3 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM, 400 Gig+ free hard drive space, but an Iris 550 card with a maximum of 1536 MB VRAM (i.e., it has the required VRAM, but apparently only the “Pro” Iris cards work). I got an error when starting up that there was "no compatible graphic device” so looks like civ 6 is not supported on the newer machines. The game mechnics seeme to work (save the graphics issues), but it is not a smooth playing experience with the graphics issues and it should be written that the game DOES NOT work well with all the new 2016 Mac Book Pros, even if they have the required VRAM, and has serious graphics issues. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION- In reponse to the Developer who indicates that the recent update is supposed to correct the problem, I contacted ASPYR Support and their response was: “ AspyrJason, May 12, 4:35 PM CDT: The Iris 550 is not our list of supported graphics cards. I will need to send your info down to our lab to verify if it works or not. I will let you know what they say ASAP. Aspyr CS”. It is very troubling that the Developer Response (Sorry to hear you’re running into problems with the game on your Iris 550. The game has been updated to support that specific model so if you…) is providing information that is in conflict with their support team.

Version 1.0.4
Review by Brder4Life

Eh... - The game is pretty cool. I think they still need to refine how the army function works when combining units. Good idea, but need to make them 2x - 3x strength of a single unit, otherwise there is no point. The culture tree is wonky. They had the concept right in Civ 5, then abandoned it in their outerspace version, and decided to keep that option in this version. If they figured out the army component, and used the structure for culture use from Civ 5 they would have a great game. Also, there should be a healing function for apostles.

Review by font9b

Boring game; not fun to play. - I’ve played every Civ version since Civ 2. Many, many hours spent playing Civ over the last 20 years. Civ VI is by far the most lackluster, uninspired, tepid game I have ever played. It’s worse than time wasted - it’s time wasted while waiting around for the fun to start all the while getting more and more miserable. Don’t waste your time.
