Civilization first impressions

Civilization VI First Impression

Spread the Word!

Civilization VI is here! I’ve been looking forward to this game for years and so far it’s living up to my expectations. 

Does Firaxis know how to make bad soundtracks? I said that because the opening theme in Civilization VI is fantastic. I thought the three different theme songs in part V was good, but this one is, surprisingly, better than those.


I was a little disappointed that Shaka Zulu wasn’t in the game because he’s always been my favorite Civilization to play as, but I really like the choices that are available in the game and for the first time in any Civilization game I chose Rome. Rome is really cool and I love their legionnaires.

Civilization VI is also rocking a brand new game engine that was built to support modding. I really love this idea and I can’t wait to see what mods release in the future for this game. The graphics in this game took a little getting used to. The new cartoony look won’t please everyone, but I like it. It’s different and way the map discovered itself as I moved around was really neat.


The gameplay is the same it’s ever been, but it’s been refined and the animations are a lot better too. I saw a barbarian impale my archer unit before he finished him off. I loved it, but hated it too because I lost a pretty good archer unit on that turn.

Diplomacy still stinks and I can’t help, but wonder if they even tried to improve it in anyway since Civilization V.

I haven’t played as much Civilization VI as I wanted to, but I’ve already experienced that one more turn syndrome that is known to happen in these games. I told myself one more turn around turn 60 and I got off at 105. It’s addictive, but it’s a good kind of addiction that I really want more of.



A fan of mine reached out to me on Facebook and said some really nice things to me. She’s a gamer and she’s also into photography. She said I inspired her to make her own blog and that really touched me. She has a brand new blog and could use some love so feel free to check her out here
