Ratings and Reviews
Pretty good game-- just the recent update
I agree with other reviews: the graphics are indeed more cartoonish. However, the involvement of
city-states to which you can levy adds in a more exciting way to get a domination victory. The addition forces you to keep in check with neighboring city-states which could potentially turn on you if you are to lose suzerianship. Personally, after playing Civ IV and Civ V, this game has made winning more of a challenge. It makes you sit back and play more defensive because of the warmongerer penalties.
Unfortunantly, the game is a tad slow for me on my mac, even on some of the lower graphics. Then there was the recent update here a few days ago. I was so frustrated when I came home for the day, completely exhausted, and found that "Civilization VI quit unexpectedly". Every time I went to open the game, this message pops up. After two or three days, I got nervous that I'd have to delete the game and reinstall and lose all my progress. I'm still waiting for the game to fix. Otherwise, I truly enjoy the game. Me and my dad sat for hours playing a multiplayer match. Once you get the hang of the mechanics, you'll be addicted. I think that if you have a decently fast computer and as long as you are okay with a mild cartoon-y feeling, Civilization VI is a great game.

Awaiting Mid-Cycle Upgrade
I’ve played every Civilization game on a Mac since Civ 2, and the only version I truly hated was Civ III. This iteration ranks a little behind Civ V pre-Gods & Kings Expansion.
I think this is the most intuitive Civ refresh in a long time—the jump from IV to V was a lot harder to get used to than V to VI. A lot of the concepts are solid. I quickly got the hang of zones and rather like it as an overall concept that adds to make a better game. Oddly enough, zones tends to simplify game play rather than make it more complex. Splitting advancements between technology and culture is also a solid change—unfortunately, the two are not so independent from each other that you can allow one to languish in favor of the other. Religion continues to refine nicely.
Given the solid bones, I’m somewhat shocked that the game isnt more fun. Unlike prior editions, I voluntarily turn off the game after an hour or two. I have yet to look up at the clock and wonder where the prior four hours had gone. Maybe that is a good thing for family and social life, but it makes me wonder what is missing.
What Civ VI really needs is it’s own version of Gods & Kings, which will transform it from a solidly built game to an immersively fun experience. I’m confident such an update will (eventually) be ready. Until then, I recommend that you get the game and enjoy the new elements to the Civ universe.
Solid game, great with expansions
First off, don’t believe the hype about crashes; flukes happen and it seems a few dozen vocal individuals got unlucky. I’m running a 2013 MacBook Air and haven’t experienced any problems beyond a minor annoyance (i.e. a bit of lag at first when loading a game that’s pretty far along, which is entirely expected and understandable).
I grew up playing Civ II, it was one of my favorite games. Civ IV failed to recapture the magic. I played Civ V on a console rather than a computer, and didn’t really enjoy it. Given all that, Civ VI was a wonderful breath of fresh air! I got this game right away when it came out and really enjoyed it, but before long it got pretty stale. What it was missing was scenarios—starting in the middle of a story and accomplishing certain goals against specific opponents. The same few countries always seemed to be overpowered, and gameplay got boring. Now that a bunch of expansions have come out, there is a LOT more variety, not to mention all the new scenarios that come with each one! This game is WONDERFUL!!
