OK... overly complicated
There's too much going on for multiple reasons: I have a relatively strong MacBook Pro and the game runs slow while the graphics are ridiculously simple (which is a neutral comment, really) and yet the game get bogged down in processing. It mihgt be the math / calculations creating the game play. All that seems overly complicated. The use of Religion separated from Culture is a waste. I wish you could toggle it out of the game. Trade, too, is tedious for the user and - seemingly - slows down the game. Setting up custom games (via Advanced settings) just returns the same map if you don't adjust a setting. I wish you could play alone (i.e. in Single Player without the AI). The option in Advanced Settings to start all players in a simiilar resource-geography is good but why do players get clustered together? I have no interest or need for Multi-player and that bogs down the game's ultimate size (likely not its performance). All of this creates the worst scenario: even the "huge" game board/map isn't that big and within 5-10 turns you can be on top of another civ. It gets annoying when you just want to relax and play but have to "fight" with or fight off another civ.
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.

It’s good, but not GREAT.
I’ve played every Civ game from the beginning. This game has better potential once more DLC’s come in. Right now, I’ve really felt like overall, the game just lacks what Civ V and below have. The biggest thing is aesthetical to be honest. Everything is just super cartoonish in comparison to the other games, especially Civ V. The game also lacks it’s intuitive quickness and feel to the navigation. It’s animations are not fully realized. It also strays further from historical accuracy and attributes than the games before. I do like the additional city building options, the largest being the fact that you don’t have to build a city right next to the coast in order to benefit from creating boats. Overall though, it was kind of a let down. For us die hard Civ fans, it will probably be a dissapointment for us. If you’re just now getting into Civ, you’ll probably like it more.
