Really boring game, and this is coming from the guy who spent hundreds of hours on civ 5.
)Multiplayer is glitchy
)Beat it once;I didnt feel the urge to do it again like with civ 5
)This game was way too hyped up for its own good
)The UI goes for the futuristic and minimalist approach but imo doesnt really work well
)The terrain is boring- pretty much everything is grey
)I especially hate the new diplomacy screens. In civ 5, you had the grand courtroom of Rome with beautiful statues; Atilla's tent stocked with weapons; India's peaceful seas. yet here you have just a leader speaking half english half native language in the middle of your screen, and as a native hindi speaker kavita really ♥♥♥♥♥♥ me off , with my general consensus being 'PICK ONE ALREADY STOP SWITCHING BETWEEN LANGUAGES'
)The Alien's are really annoying and useless. They're either everywhere and you cant do anything without getting smashed, or you're so far ahead they're irrelevant. There's no progression or middle ground.
)The tech web is really annoying. You either beeline for an expensive tech than clean up useless techs that dont really do much or pick a bunch of small techs and get left behind
)The ♥♥♥♥ing wonders. God. Half the time you cant even tell if thats a building or a wonder you're researching.
If you havent played civ 5, picture this
In Civ 5 = Beautiful oil painting depicting the wonder you built, grand music playing, A historical quote that relates to your wonder and a description of what it does
In Civ 6 = You get a blueprint of what you built.
)This one is really opinionated, but I prefer the soothing deep voice reading me a historical quote I never knew about rather than some woman half heartedly speaking some lines.
)Game winning screen is not satisfying at all. Before you had an oil painting of your victory type (which is still here tbf), a quote stating your greatness read by a calming voice, along with demographics, a score comparison to historical leader and a map replay. In this game its just ,you won. Yay. Cool.
Sorry if I come across as a bit of an ♥♥♥, I blame the fact that this was something I was excited for over a year and it fell flat on its face.TL;DR buy civ 5 in a sale and wait for DLC to save this game.
