    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.

    Basically, if you enjoy 4X games or are a Civilization fan, you have to pick this up. But you didn’t need me to tell you that. It’s already on your list and Sid Meier’s Civilization VI is already in the download queue. If it’s not, you’ve got time right now to remedy that.

    A brilliant port and a brilliant game. There aren't any real issues with the game whatsoever and nothing that would put you off purchasing it. If you are a fan of the series or even interested in the Civilization series, it is a must buy!

    If you like the genre, it is absolutely essential.

    While the PC edition is the undisputed king, the first true, numbered console edition of the series is wonderfully designed and - much like the “chronophage” it always was - it is destined to lead unsuspecting console gamers into many sleepless nights.

    Even without the add-ons the console version of Civilization 6 stands for large-scale strategic entertainment.

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

    Sid Meier's Civilization VI is a fun, beautiful, interesting turn-based strategy video game. Recommend for any strategy game fans on the ps4.

    Full of bugs and lacks the depth of CIV 5. I don't like the cartoony art style as much. When I played it, the NPCs would build Pyramids IN THE OCEAN.

    First time back to civilisation since the 4th instalment. Sad thing is I have played stellaris and this game just doesn’t really compare. OkayFirst time back to civilisation since the 4th instalment. Sad thing is I have played stellaris and this game just doesn’t really compare. Okay they are not exactly the same type of game, but I find stellaris to be an in depth game with lots of choices, civilisation 6 seems to have barely improved from 4 and its absolute barebones with dlc costing far too much, seems firaxis have a serious case of greed. The absolute worst thing though is the fact you end up in a war every time I play, seems there is no way to play this game without going to war whether you like it or not Expand

    The multiplayer is broken and no response from 2k. For a full price game this is a joke
