Like previous games in the franchise, Civilization VI is a turn-based 4X strategy game that involves building up your civilization through settling new cities, developing a vibrant culture including art and science, keeping your civilians satisfied, engaging in diplomacy with other world leaders, and, of course, going to war. While the core of the game is the same, Civ VI also brought many changes and improvements to the franchise, including a new civics tree, districts that allow for city specialization, and the ability to combine troops into a larger army or fleet. The game earned a 9/10 in GameSpot’s Civilization VI review, in which critic Scott Butterworth called Civ VI “the deepest, most well-rounded base game the series has ever seen.”
“Civ 6 has a few rough edges, but they’re pushed far into the periphery by spectacular strategic depth and intricate interlocking nuances,” Butterworth wrote. “Any frustrations I experienced were immediately eclipsed by my desire to continue playing. Just one more turn, every turn, forever.”
