Civ VI: Rise and Fall expansion
« on: November 28, 2017, 08:38:07 AM »
New expansion due out in February.

Looks interesting, but I just haven't been able to get into Civ VI for some reason.  Played a ton of all the rest.  Maybe this will change that.

I haven't played a lot of Civilization VI yet and i have to say that the map gets crowed way too soon with the new System. Oriental Empires is a lot more what i want from a Civilization type of game. Also the bad grachics of the Units is a turn-off (especially compared to Civilization 5 and Oriental Empires). I have started my first campaign of Civilization VI so i'll see where this is leading me.

However i think i will get this Expansion, looks nice and it should improve the base game.

My all time favorite games:
Master of Orion, Civil War II: Generals,  Armada 2526 Supernova, Star Trek: Birth of the Federation, Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom, Imperium Galactica I, Conquest: Frontier Wars, Master of Orion III, Spartan, Civilization III, Knights of Honor, Takeda 2 and 3, Horizon, Master of Orion Conquer the stars.

Favorite games by Haemimont:
Rising Kingdoms, Omerta: city of gangsters, Celtic Kings: Punic Wars, Glory of the Roman Empire, Imperium Romanum and Grand Ages: Rome

I've always been a Civ fanboy but I too have trouble getting into VI.   I chalk it up to too much going on but then somehow find the time to play other things so I just think it's Civs fault.  :)

I'm a Civ fan but I've been hesitant over VI.  I liked some things about V, but the fact that V was so limiting on the number of cities you can build really killed it for me.  I know VI has the districts, so maybe that feeling of only a small handful of cities is somewhat alleviated?

I've also hear the ai is pretty bad?

Civ III and IV are my current favorites of the series.

I loved Civ V but the cartoony look of VI I still what turns me off.
