“I’ll never need another Civ game in my life besides this one” – PC Gamer (93 out of 100)

“It’s just the beginning of a new Civ chapter, and what a glorious, confident beginning it is.” – PCGamesN (9 out of 10)

“Possibly the biggest and deepest game in the series' 25-year history.” – IGN

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.

Great Potential

I am a longtime Civilization fan, from Civ II forward. As such, I may be biased in favor of the franchise. I bought this almost as soon as it came out, and was very disappointed. However, each update significantly improves playability and balance. I don’t know if y’al recall, but Civ V was the same way. I didn’t like Civ V at first, but they improved it over a few years such that it is now a great game. There’s no question that Civ VI still needs gameplay enhancements, but the basic setup is fun, with good replayability. I am running it on a Mac Pro 5,1 12-core 3.46 GHz with 48 GB ra, a 7970 video card from MacVidCards, and a 30” Apple Cinema Display (2440 by 1600), and I don’t have any problems with graphics. If I totally max out the settings, it takes a little longer between turns. I would be interesting if anyone is playing with an Nvidia graphics card.

Won’t Run On My Super Old Macbook. Refund?

Hi, I sent you guys an email as well. I love the game.. I play on my PC. While my PC was broken I bought it again for my 2008 macbook pro. Unfortunately it would not run. It crashed the first time with minimum graphics and wouldn’t load the second time I tried. Is there any way I can refund? I literally “played” for maybe five minutes, which was me sitting at the loading screen. Please help!


The game is pretty cool. I think they still need to refine how the army function works when combining units. Good idea, but need to make them 2x - 3x strength of a single unit, otherwise there is no point. The culture tree is wonky. They had the concept right in Civ 5, then abandoned it in their outerspace version, and decided to keep that option in this version. If they figured out the army component, and used the structure for culture use from Civ 5 they would have a great game. Also, there should be a healing function for apostles.
