Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, winner of 15 E3 awards including Best Strategy Game, is the next entry in the popular Civilization franchise, which has sold in over 35 million units worldwide, including more than 8 million units of Civilization V.
Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Meier, Civilization is a turn-based strategy game in which you attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time. Become Ruler of the World by establishing and leading a civilization from the Stone Age to the Information Age. Wage war, conduct diplomacy, advance your culture, and go head-to-head with history’s greatest leaders as you attempt to build the greatest civilization the world has ever known.
Civilization VI offers new ways to engage with your world: cities now physically expand across the map, active research in technology and culture unlocks new potential, and competing leaders will pursue their own agendas based on their historical traits as you race for one of five ways to achieve victory in the game.

Comments and Ratings for Civilization VI
SPOILER Not really VI, just another re-hash of Civ V (1.0.1)
1/3/2017 4:44:00 PM
2/5 By cybersoul
There’s no other game like Civilization, and sadly, not even Civ is Civ anymore. I’ve played Civ since the original and keep coming back. I bought this game on the day of its release and have played the heck out of it since to get my money’s worth (ha). I support Mac gaming, but I won’t get the DLC or even update this as the problems simply can’t be fixed until the whole game is rebuilt. All the problems of V are still there: ugly maps, shallow & cluttered UI, hopeless AI, and pitiful little units bogged down in a nearly unplayable navigational funnel. I thought the original creator of the game engine in Civ V disavowed it? I’ve never liked it, and it’s only gotten worse. Okay, who thinks “Religion" is about casting lightning bolts in fights to the death? I looked for a way to turn off Religion the way that Civ IV let you turn off Espionage (which, in this version, is now worthless; spies might cause petty problems, but they can be ignored). Everything about the entire Civ playing experience has been reduced and gamified. Goodbye, 4X. Hello, twisted little freak of an RPG? What’s next? Micro-payments? There are already plenty of those types of games to ignore. Back to Civ: "Great People” in the game now run amok. What started to go wrong in Civ IV is just insane in this version, and shows just how far from the original simulation the game has fallen. The whole point of Civ was that the player—me—was the Great Person! The Great Settler of the first city. The Great Planner and the Great General, etc, making all the “big” decisions in peace and war. But now these tiny little nuisances pop up and leave litter—well, snippets of classics of art, music and literature, stripped of context and stuffed in little boxes that generate tourism—which is somehow figured into the victory? That’s just one of the many ways to run up the score but one of many pointless distractions. The so-called “Governments” are just card games—and unsophisticated ones at that. There’s no substitution for being able to set and adjust rates of economic production. In addition, the tech tree has been split into two and each one is very, very thin. In my last game, I was researching a Civic called “Space Program” before I had even discovered the principles of “Flight" (in the other tree, natch). Clearly, the content for this first version has been stripped down to the minimum. The laughable “diplomacy” with the other leaders is worse than an incomprehensible RPG. The AI is hamstrung by pursuing victory at a pre-determined rate, and all the “leaders” still can’t win. For the first time I can remember, I’ve won all of the Civ games I’ve played on a new version—proving again that this is not a new version. Even with the ridiculous overhead incurred with building new districts, the same strategy that wins Civ V and Civ BE wins this version. SPOILER: the other civs can be out-produced, out-developed and out-fought with ease. To maximize your production, you’ll need numbers on your side. I shoot for building or capturing 50 cities, but settle for half. Somehow, the opponents in this version even struggle to build ten without help. Maxing out the Commercial districts and trade will pay for and support all those cities. I invest heavily in Campus buildings and Holy Site for the first hundred turns, but then stop. I’ll still have to choose “Future Tech” again and again and again because without destroying the buildings, you can never stop their output. For all the effort on the lovely soundtrack (the only reason to give more than one star to this re-hash) and detailed CG animations, there is just painfully little variety. I doubt I’ve heard half the soundtrack and I’ve been playing for a month. I’m guessing this game was produced by people who don’t actually play it. And the animators should be forced to hear Harold Hardrada grunt in pointless succession after succession, because I won’t. After a few hundred rounds, that all gets real old. I knew that the tedious endgame awaited me but that winning the game was merely the final insult. In the better conceived Civilization Beyond Earth (despite being a re-working of the intellectual property of 1999’s Alpha Centauri), the game engine worked as well as could be expected in that game as it was set in an alien location, so “ugly" worked great. In addition, [SPOILER] the endgame in Civ BE has so many moral dilemmas—enslavement to an overmind, forced re-location of humans, armed invasion of Earth, just for a few examples—so that the excruciating amount of time that victory took actually added to the tension and stakes. In fact, the Science Victory actually makes Sean Bean’s words a lie: “From the first stirrings… you have come far… towards the stars.” SPOILER: you may turn your gaze to the stars, but you will only get to Mars. Sad. And also weird—to close, I want to ask: Whose idea was it to spin the leaders into something approaching immortals as hinted at in the prologues (“Gilgamesh… you are more than a mere man…” WTH?) because that’s just lame. And weird. And, hopefully, I’ll never play a game this over-produced again.
Crashes no matter what your specs are (1.0.1)

Constantly crashing even though I have more than the require system specs. Especially in later years.
Runs Okay Until late era, then crashes constantly (1.0.1)
1/1/2017 8:12:00 PM
2/5 By tehart
There are major changes from Civ V. Some are okay, some not. The screen for the production queue is different, and you can no longer use the tab key to cycle back and forth. You use the  keyes. That’s really intuitive. Most of the key bindings appear to have changed in counter-intuitive ways. Units don’t stack, but the do form corps (two units) and armies (3 units), as well as their naval equivalents. However, the corps and armies don’t appear to move as a single unit. Combat is still rather dull. In Civ IV you would go to a screen, and watch the slaughter when cities are attacked. Doesn’t happen in Civ V, and apparently doesn’t happen in VI.
The major problem is that once you reach the later eras, generally the Information Era, unless I’m mistaken, the program freezes up, and needs to be restarted. Now they did add a nice feature so that if you crashe, or even, I guess exit without saving, you can resume the game where you left off. The bad thing is that a certain point the game crashes without notices, and it is impossible to play. This is apparently due to the graphics card. Only certain ones are fully compatible with the game. My iMac has an Nvidia M750 card, and it works for a while, but then stops.
It seems to me that it’s sloppy or negligent programming to implement a game in such a manner that a customer has to go out and spend $1,400 or more for a new computer to run a $50 or $60 game when a machine is 3 years old or less.
Aspyr really needs to address the issue of properly implementing the graphics on middle-aged Macs.
Units form corps or armies, or the naval equivalents thereof, by selecting the two star or three star symbol on the unit dialog, and then clicking on the highleghted adjacent area. This is not obvious at first glance.
I was finally able to finish a game. The program apparently uses memory at a good clip, and in the later stages it uses the most. Aspyr suggests running in Strategic mode, which I haven’t tried yet. What I did find is that if you have no other programs running it is possible to finish the game. My machine is an iMac late 2013 model with the Nvidia 750 card and 8GB of RAM, so users with 16 or 32GB machines may fare better.
In previous versions, such as V, nukes were an option, but you did not have to build a separate project to go from the atomic bomb to the hydrogen bomb. Also they were buyable with gold. Here they must be built and each bomb is considered a city project.
I have bit of a beef with some of the late stage wonders and projects. As IU recall the first fission reaction took place in the late 1930s, and the first nuclear blast took place in 1045/ I think it took 5 to 8 years to go to the huydrogen bomb. It seem to me that the Manhattan project and other late stage wonders take too long in relation to the historical reality. That’s just my opinion, and not a major complaint.
You used to get a nice fireball and sound effects when using nukes, not so much anymore.
In previous versions Future Tech was a constantly repeating tech that did not require sekection. In this version both the tech and the kast stage civics selection have to be manually selected over and over again.

This game is fun, dont get me wrong, however it will crash on you and there is no way to fix it. I have had to start over several times at various points in several playthroughs. It is very frustrating to have it still be an issue.
Specs Requirements (1.0.1)

2/5 By Txcarfuvuyc
I loved playing Civ V and was hoping for an experience that would be just as good as the old game. I believed that I could run the game on my laptop because it says that your device needs to be "OS X 10.11 or later, 64-bit processor" My laptop meets both of these requirements so I was confused when my screen was black when I started up the game. I looked online for more specific specs on devices compatible to this game and found that my computer acually could not handle Civ VI. I was so disappointed that I spent all that money on it only to find out that my laptop could not run the game. I have a MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2011) which has 2.4 GHz and 4GB of memory. After researching I found out that this game requires 2.7 GHz and 6GB of memory which Apple did not mention on this page. Because of this, I warn all of you who are intrested in this game to carefully research what specs are required for this game BEFORE purchasing.
Civilization 6 (1.0.1)
12/31/2016 11:53:00 AM
5/5 By Clash👌
This game shocked me. I was very impressed at first the intro was quite amusing I thought this was going to look amazing. The graphics were good for the intro but then when you play it actually it looks cheezy. It’s only about half way in my empire where I decided that this was the best game ever. You can declare wars, trade with others, you can create your own personal empire and start again and get a completely different result. You can be a man of mass destruction or a man of peace. Peace is where the key lies embedded in this game which shows you how fun it can be to start your own world in a simple $60 game. The game is definitely over priced but I was so excited to open the gates to creativity I had to buy this game. I am not disappointed I am simply relieved. The stress deciding if I should buy it or not was tough but after trailers upon trailers and gameplay, I decided this is going to be mine. This game is actually historically correct in cities depending on your leader. Overall this game is quite fun it kept me on it for hours just wanting me to develop to my new age and then again to my new empire rebuilt. Those who attack must be attacked and where I stand my ground is where the birth of life was given.
Not really as fun as Civ 5 (1.0.1)
12/29/2016 5:54:00 PM
3/5 By Redrogue60
I know everyone is complaining about the crashing but I want to comment on a few things of my own.
1. Civ 5 had the Earth map really it should have been in this one too
2. Rainforests should have the Brazil wood logging option
3. It would have been more cool to see the leaders appropriately dressed in different eras
4. All of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World should always be represented in the game if you are going to have wonders then put all of the amceint ones in. Come on there are only 7
The Great Pyramids - In the game
The Statue of Zeus - Not
The Temple of Artemis - Not
The Gardens of Baylon - In the Game
The Mausoleum og Mausolus - Not
The Colosuss of Rhodes - In the Game
The Lighthouse of Alexandria - In the Game
5. The 7 Wonders of the Natural World should always be in the game
Great Barrier Reef
Harbor of Rio de Janeiro
Mount Everest - In the Game
6. As the game progresses there should be a stronger construction bonus for later created cities for building that are Ancient and Classic era buildings.
7. Where are all the single player scenarios? Those were the most fun when the game got tedius in Civ 5
8. When you get to the end of your choices to pick for social bonuses it should just be one revolving bonus not globalization and social media over and over
9. Cathedrals should also house religious music in addidtion to religious works of art
10. Statues should be a separate category of art from paintings Art Museums should be able to house both statuary and paintings as separate slots and 3 a piece
11. Librabries should hold 2 written works slots a piece in addition to the ampitheatre
12. Making a copper/silver/gold mine should all bonus coinage

This is a great game that is full of unexpected twists and turns. It doesn't get boring to me it keeps having new challenges to face. People keep complaining about crashes. I have had this game since November and not one single crash. It runs smoothly and no problems so far. Great game, lot of money but worth it if you are looking for a great game and a new challenge.
Nice changes to 20 years of civ (1.0.1)
12/27/2016 3:47:00 PM
4/5 By test$depth
Civilization VI potential buyers….
I read all the reviews about crashes. I have had none of that and I have version 1.01. I have a 2014 MBP Core i7 2.5, 16GB, 512 GB Flash drive, and 2GB vram on Nvidia GT 750M. I am running a clean install macOS sierra not an upgrade from El Capitan.
If you are a long time Civ player like me this game will be different. Civ 1-4 all had similar game play with enhanced graphics with each iteration. Civ 5 was still similar, with advanced social tactics, was more about trade and relationships than destroying your enemies like before, but was still the smae general game play as 1-4. I have had Civ 6 for about 24 hours and I had to switch from Prince level to Settler level just to get the gameplay down. On Civ 5 I started on Prince and never looked back. I consider this a plus becuae it means the developers really put thought into this one. I regularly had high scores (Ceasar or Lincoln rating) on levels 5 & 6 in Civ 5. So, there are much better players out there than me, but, I am long term civ player.
A couple of big differences I have noticed so far:
Cities: There are several districts you have to develop for building up certain aspects of a city. So, rather than having a host of buildings to choose from, you have to create a district and then develop the buildings in that district. And, you have to have land to do so. For example, if you build the aquaduct disctrict, you have to place it on a tile next to water.
Housing: You have to have housing to keep your city expanding. I don’t fully have this down yet, but, it appears you get more houses through government bonuses, tile improvements like farms, and district expansions.
Warfare: You can’t stack units, but, the eternal nature of warfare against 1 city in CIv 5 has been resolved.
Barbarians: Even in Settler level they are everywhere and they now have Scouts.
Economy and Building: It seems like building up a city takes longer than earlier versions of the game. I have reached about 1300 AD in my first game and still have melee units and just discovered Gunpowder. Now, this could be a function of my newness to the new game play. Money and trade seems to be slow to develop, but, I have not run out of money yet or lost citizens due to negative funds. Getting the map discovered seems to be arduous even with a couple of Scouts roaming around (Standard map size).
Technology: This is perhaps the best improvement. The technologies expanded and get discovered through more activities than just science. For example if you build a city near the water you gain Sailing knowledge.
City States: Relationship with city-states is still critical and is developed with Envoys.
Government: There is now a tree for government and you can select your government form with certain charatceristics that make your form of government unique compared to others with the same overarching form. I like this. This is how it is in real life. You can pick if you want to bonuses for melee units or wonders for example even though you have a oligarchy main form. You get more frequent oppurtunities to change. And you have to discover government schemes just like science now; government is complete with a full discovery tree.
Religion and Culture: Still critical. I haven’t messed with these too much yet. Just tried to get my religion formed so I can get the bonuses and spread it around like Civ 5.
Overall, the play finally feels different. So, if you are a long term player of Civ, you will need some time to get up to speed. This is a good thing. I like the new feel of the game. I am not giving it 5 stars becuase it just hasn’t blown me away. But, I keep coming back to the game despite having other things to do. Definitely recommended.
Why so graphics-intensive? (1.0.1)
12/26/2016 9:54:00 PM
3/5 By Robrrb
Since Civ III, I’ve always wondered why the franchise insists on making the games so graphics-intensive. This isn’t a first-person shooter; nobody’s playing because the units’ belts move realistically. People play this kind of game for the strategy and story; that’s it. The graphics could be the same as Civ II and (assuming some gameplay updates) people would still be fans. Turn-based-strategy really shouldn’t tax computers like this.
My computer does run it fine, though the fan pops on in a way that I don’t see in any other game (including much nicer-looking ones). It did the same with Civ V. Aspyr just needs to get their priorities straight, and graphics need to be near the bottom.

Great game, but crashes make it unplayable. Game itself is the problem, not graphic card, etc. No amount of setting changes or restores to earlier autosaves prevents hard crash to desktop upon certain actions (e.g. capturing a specific city). Problems have occured in multiple playthrough attempts, cannot finish a game. Windows platform is updated more regularly. At time of writing, windows/steam version has a winter update, perhaps with fixes, mac OS does not. I regret not buying that version & running in bootcamp / parallels. Using a 2015 macbook pro 13” and graphics are not highest settings, but solid. Just crashes too much to be playable.

I have all of the correct specifications, my Mac is almost brand new and is able to run all of the highest settings for the game, and yet whenever I even start up the game… crash. I really like the game, but if I can’t play it, then while I hate to say it, I think that a refund is in order. This is on the makers of the game to fix in a timely manner, it is sad to see that after so long, no patch has come yet. I along with others have sent many error messages to their support teams to no avail, I hope that they are working on a fix, and if so if they could just tell us.
All I want to do is use Japan to take over islands and form a merchant republic, but now all I can do is wallow in sadness. I hope they fix it, it is a great game for the most part otherwise.

Though not stated in the requirements here on the app store, it is listed on Aspyr’s support site. Your graphics card must be a minimum of 1gb or it will not work, period. Not your computer memory, the graphics card. Probably most Mac owners do not meet this requirement. So check first. (Apple Icon, ABOUT THIS MAC, Graphics xxx)
Many 1gb cards will not work anyway, so also check here, this is from their site. Also note, Aspyr blows.
NOTICE: The following 1GB (or more) VRAM video cards are NOT supported to run Civilization VI:

Unfortunately this version (1.01) crashes during each and every attempt to play. I’m not a dev, but reading the crashlogs, it looks like an exception is occurring connected to the graphics card, and I can consistently reproduce this error. Hopefully everyone is sending their crash reports to Apple who will forward them to Aspyr.

So just downloaded this as a gift. Still in the learning curve… Over all its acceptable as an updated version…but it CRASHES CONSTANTLY.
I have a brand new MacB Pro. All the stats meet for the game. All the bells and whistles. The game still CRASHES.
Kind of annoyed that I paid for a new updated game that craps out before I hit the industrial age.
I’d rather play Beyond Earth at this point…
Crashes constantly since update (1.0.1)
12/12/2016 9:57:00 AM
3/5 By rsf820
Everything was running smoothly for me and this game until the update came along. Since then, I can’t play more than 4 or 5 turns of a game without it crashing. I have tried lowering the graphic settings and other things I know to try , but it still won’t last for more than a few turns. Overall, the game is OK. I had read early reviews that said that Civ VI took the “boring mid-game part” and made it interesting again, but that really hasn’t been my experience. Cultural victories are way, way to easy against the AI, even on higher difficulty modes and the “districts” aspect, while an interesting concept, just makes for the same building slog that existed in previous Civ games, just with a couple more decisions to make. I will not repeat, but will only confirm, all complaints about the AI being off or just plain weird in some cases. Hopefully, future updates will improve these things, though it won’t matter to me if my crashing issue doesn’t improve.

Great concepts, art but clunky UI (1.0.0)
11/27/2016 6:18:00 PM
4/5 By MacFan99
I’ve been a Civ player since Civ 2 and this latest Civ version is both great and poor. Overall, the pros outweigh the cons but I really hope a later version will fix the UI issues. Here are my pros and cons but of course “your milage may vary”.
Pros (things I particularly like):
The artwork (units, terrain, buildings, wonders, etc.) is a quantum leap beyond Civ 5.
The whole district concept is new and adds a new dimension to city built-out, which is a lot more challenging than Civ 5.
Advancements are now split into Technology and Civics trees. The two interact in important ways and the boost concept (a specific action or Civic/Tech cuts a new Tech/Civic’s cost in half) makes plotting
Religion is back with multiple unit types, theological combat and more.
Spies are back and can be very effective, but you have to pick your targets and attacks or defenses very carefully.
Traders and trade routes are important, even critical to economic development. They are also the only practical way to build roads.
Builder units - these consumable workers can instantly build any non-district feature like farms or quaries but only 3 to 5 before they are consumed.
Combat unit promotions - now you can see the simplified type-specific promotion effects as a matrix. This is a real imp[rovement over Civ 5.
Special units (traders, spies, great people) can move from one city to another in a single turn.
Cons (things I particularly don’t like, which need to be fixed):
There is only one categorical problem. The UI is very clunky, in many ways. Here are some examples:
When the game selects the next unit to move, it no longer (as it does in Civ 5) scrolls the map to display the unit. This can cause confusion when you think you’re moving a unit of the same type which is visible on the map.
Several different actions (trader destinations and spy city targets are two examples) use a selection pane on the left side of the display. You select the destination city then click on a button to confirm. For trader destinations and most others, the button is at the top of the pane but for spy placement it is at the bottom. Consistency of placement of widgets for similar actions is GUI Design 101.
Moving units can take multiple tries with the right-click-on-destination feature. Sometimes its “Oops, I have to wake the unit up before I can move it” but its always frustrating to have the game display the route and then when the mouse button is released nothing happens.
Movement issue 2 - Units (espcially religuous units) move very slowly
An iceberg melting is faster (1.0.0)

This game is like watching ice melt. It is REALLY slow. The graphics are more like a cartoon than anything else. I truly wish I had not purchased this game. By the way, I did change the settings for faster game play, and did *not* see an improvement. Just to put this in context, it is about one tenth the speed of Civ V.

Good Platform but Terrible Gameplay (1.0.0)
11/22/2016 8:58:00 AM
1/5 By B-Rayden1
Civilization VI further develops the foundations of Civ V, and introduces a new technology tree and a civics tree that replaces the policy slots. The option to choose the type of government is interesting. Also, you can create districts around your cities, like commercial, holy site, campus, and encampment districts. However, graphics are extremely poor for the units and the landscape. I was expecting highly tesselated scenery with a unit resolution that made you feel like you were actually in a battle but I was sorely disappointed. Also, unit movement is reduced, making troop movement slow and problematic, even over roads. Additionally, great person and wonder benefits have been decreased which makes gameplay tedious. The espionage gameplay is annoying, grabbing your attention every 6 turns to assign tedious missions. Finally, the nuclear devices keep malfunctioning on the Mac version—I wish they would fix these bugs. I give this game 1 star.

Downloaded in 20 minutes. I’ve got over 100 hours already on the game and it runs great, only two crashes and those are probably glitches that will be fixed in the first patch. I have no complaints with the graphics, when you up the settings in the options menu it really is beautiful. Lot’s of animation of the terrain including waving wheat and jumping fish. Gameplay is superb and I’m already addicted.

I have played Civ since the Commodore 64 days, this version is just terrible. clunky, is accurate - frustrating, too. If I could return it I would. It is really a disappointment
Good ideas, but needs some improvements to update (1.0.0)

I like what they are trying to do with the tiles, the fact that we have to use the terrain for our cities. Unfortunately, I like that I could use the map of the actual world. They really should bring that back. Its annoying that I can only zoom with the mouse. Also, there’s no clear instruction on how to conduct espionage. I would really like an easier way to do this. I hope the creators read the comments and make some updates, espicially with the screen zoom function. This is still a great way to play a fun game with I cannot go out and spend money.
Wonderful game, horrible performance (1.0.0)

The game is amazing, full of nuance - it’s like Civlization 4 with all the rough edges polished over. Religion is back, the city state treatment is awesome and AIs seem more rational and less random.
HOWEVER, the performance is horrible. I am running it on the just released 2016 Macbook Pro 13”, and it’s dog slow. I don’t know what things the developers were doing when porting, but optimizing it to run well on the Mac was not one of them. I’m running it at the lowest quality settings, and it’s still slow.
The performance is bad enough to *almost* ruin a great game. Devs, if you’re reading this please fix the performance. Seriously, it’s atrocious.
Frustratingly glitchy (1.0.0)

Civ VI is an enjoyable development on the previous incarnation, but the game often crashes unexpectedly. Utterly ruins what would otherwise be a 5 star game.
Runs great on 2016 13” Macbook Pro! (1.0.0)

I purchased this game after obtaining the new 2016 13” Macbook Pro (without touchbar, base model) and was slightly worried about performance, but the game runs great even with the integrated graphics! It’s a big change from traditional Civilization games with the focus on city building, but since I already enjoy those types of games I think it’s a good mix. I would definitally recommend running through the tutorials, even if you’re a Civilization master.
