Ratings and Reviews
Love the game BUT...
I’ve loved CIV since it was introduced to me few years back, so having it on my iPad was incredible! I love it so much that I bought the game twice (on my macbook and on my iPad) HOWEVER, today I tried playing multiplayer with my friend and immediately encountered some glitches on both the local and cloud modes.
On local mode, whenever I would create the game, it would not let me choose my own CIV.
On cloud, well its just not the most favorable of experiences. Since its not real time, you would exit out of your current game when its not your turn, and then proceed to the loading screen once more once it is. This process is inefficient, and makes the game run forever with so much dead air. Having the game be in real time would allow users to fully invest in the game and provide more attention to it as opposed to being encouraged to do other things (and maybe even close out of the game) as they’re waiting. To top things off as well, my friend reported having difficulty getting back into the game once he was closed out (my turn) and eventually we just called it. I love the idea of playing with my friends out of range, so please work on your multiplayer options. Thank you!
Some folks writing reviews...
Thanks for the latest update!!!
Thanks for the Frontier pack! Works pretty good for me. Hello again, what a marvelous game. I couldn’t be happier! ____________ Just dropping back in to say THANKS for Gathering Storm! It works wonderfully well on the iPadPro! ————— Thanks for Rise and Fall. You guys are the best! Not having any issues with Great people or anything else. Using the original iPad Pro. Looking forward to additional content. Most mods continue to work like a charm with a little effort. ————— Hello all, it appears that some folks writing reviews do not fully appreciate or understand how the game is played... shame on you for your low ratings as they are totally unsubstantiated. This is a great game with great support. It works just like the Desktop/Laptop version but with the graphics toned down just a bit. Yes turns can take longer, but on a standard size map it might even be a bit faster than on my PC, although it is likely older than what some of you have. I’ve been playing on a 12.9” original iPad since it came out and the only issues I’ve had were with a couple of mod’s. Developers, with your next update could you possibly have as a game option, a setting to turn on the “ui scale 1” option so I don’t have to turn on my Bluetooth keyboard for that every time? Looking forward to R&F.
Edit: Amazing game!!
Edit: I was able to finally complete a full game without crashing. This legitimately feels like a full port of the game. Even has the hypocritical War weariness and Gandhi the warmongering “pacifist”: I love it!!!. Hopefully they will release some of the expansions from the main game in the future, but otherwise this is the game I was expecting when I first downloaded the app. Thank you to the developers for fixing the game! Keep up the good work.
When this game works it’s amazing, but it crashes so often that it’s more frustrating then worthwhile. Originally I tried running a standard game. Crashes started around turn 50 at 150 I was crashing every other turn. Looked at the reviews figured I would try a smaller map my device is only 2 years old but whatever. Get to turn 250 with 3 crashes. Annoying but playable. Now that map is is once again crashing every couple of turns. What is the point of a game you can’t even play properly let alone play to its full potential. I have other full AAA games ported over that play fine. Appears I’ll have to stick with them and maybe one day they will fix the this app to work properly until then maybe try to convince Apple to give your money back.
Side note 3-4 minute wait times to load a map are ridiculous particularly with the crashing.
