Sid Meier’s Civilization VI Video Review
It’s been six years since the release of Civilization V and the series back in a big way. Civ as we know it is back and it truly is the return of the prodigal son as Civilization VI shakes up old conventions, providing opportunities for more complex strategy with its new features. In Civilization, you are the leader of a historic nation. You start out as a simple settler in an untamed land, and you found your first city. You don’t follow the path that history has laid out for you; instead, you carve out a place in your own world. Through discovering technologies, developing cultural milestones, building an army, and constructing historic wonders, you work your way up to the future. Throughout the game, you expand your empire and compete against other nations who all have the same goal as you — world domination.
Our reviewer’s experience can be summed up here: “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. Civilization is more engrossing than ever with this higher level of management and decisions that have new consequences. With its complex, overlapping systems that still seem so intuitive, you can guarantee that I’ll be back at it again soon — I have several worlds to win.”
Coming in at a more than respectable 92/100 you can be that Civilization VI is an experience you won’t want to miss.
