    Civilization VI is essential. Not only is it a game that's educational, informative, and inspirational (see my video above for more thoughts around that), but it's also deeply pertinent to today's world and gives players a way of seeing - and grappling - with the topic on their own terms. There are deeper strategy games out there (though not on PlayStation 4), but Civilization's accessibility and polish make it the perfect introduction to the genre, and while the PS4 port doesn't do anything beyond what was already on offer, this is still one of the best things released on the console this year.

    Sid Meier's Civilization VI on console works perfectly and it's a pleasure to play.

    Civilization VI is an excellent strategy game that offers numerous ways to play, and all of them are viable options. You can lead a peaceful nation or a war-mongering empire and still have an engrossing and rewarding experience like few others on PS4. Excessive load times, grating music, and some occasionally irksome controls are the only real downsides to what is otherwise the system's best strategy game, and a title that strategy fans can scarcely afford to skip.

    The great Civilization VI works perfectly well in Nintendo Switch. Is one of the best strategic game of the last years, and it's pure addictive thanks to portable mode.

    "Rise & Fall"and "Gathering Storm" are packed into this console version. The gameplay experience and controls work perfectly. A must-buy for every Civilization game fan.

    Epic time travel with very well interlinked elements. A great RTS despite weak AI.

    Civilization VI is a rock solid port that keeps the game’s strengths – and flaws – intact for consoles.

I did play it on my PS4 pro and it was difficult because of how slow the game got in later rounds.

    So on ps5 Im having a blast with it. I havent tried multiplayer as the AI seems more than capable of providing a fun challenge for me. I havent mastered it. I like all the mechanics and it gives me that wonderfully addictive Civ feeling which should tell you all you need to know.

    I dont give 10s. So 8 from me is strong. All that is holding it back is the ridiculously expensice DLC and the cartoon like animations. Personally I never look to historical world leaders as comical but it does give them some personality I suppose. In hindsight its not terrible but just a tad goofy.

    If you like Civ, especially if you have a PS5, this is a good bet. Solid 8.

    Multiplayer on Ps4 doesn't work so if you're looking to play with friends pick a different game!

Instead of ever having to learn and optimize strategy, one can easily select all units and production facilities and mash keys to win relentlessly against the luck element which is scarcely challenging. You're better off playing any of the age of empires series because then even if you lose, you still have a familiar and engaging game to get back to where you're taught strategy and rewarded for wise play. Civilization you just have to keep clicking. Expand
