Ratings and Reviews
Finally works again, but other things broken
It took a while, but this game finally does not get stuck on the loading screen as of version 1.4.2. This update introduced an unfortunate glitch where the music stopped playing. Version 1.4.3 fixed this glitch, only to introduce an even bigger one that wiped all of my saved games and settings upon install. I'm not a programmer, but I think the support for this game is seriously lacking.
Like the game, work arounds shouldn't be needed
I play this game all time. If you like stategy games, that next turn will grab you in Civ 6. Before you know it, it is the next morning. Balance can be an issue with the AI on some leaders.
I would rate this game MUCH higher if I didn't have to work around some issues.
Issue one, buying the download content. I do have all the content. You can't get to the content normally. I found that if you turn on accessiblity and use voice over. You can tab to the content you'd like to buy and then click return to buy the content.
Issue two, stucking at loading screen when creating a game or opening a save file. I don't know why. I am on a laptop. If I disconnect from power and use on battery. I can open and create games. you can play with the power plugged in.
I am still on Monterey with a 2016 Macbook Pro 13 inch.
Update: Newest version has fixed all issues on my setup. Games works and is using less processing power to boot. Longer play on battery. Win win.. nice update. Updated the star rating from 3 to 5
Meh and Too Bad
This is one my favorite games ever and get annoyed at the patch breaks or whatever causes problems with Mac OS. The 1.4.3 debacle still hasn't been resolved (mine simply won't move off 1.4.2 despite multiple attempts to verify file integrity, uninstalling and reinstalling, and now god help me just tried to purchase the game again in hopes that will fix this issue. I agree with other reviews here -- great game, unsatisfying support around bug fixes.
