Worth upgrading from 5?


I've played a bit of this recently after over 150 hours on Civ 5.... I think I like Civ 5 more. But that's just me.

I just did now - got nothing else to spend my money on for the next 3 months

I am the same, I have tried to get into 6 a few times, but keep going back to 5.
If we got a few HUKD people, do you think it would be worth an online game going on 5?
winner winner chicken dinner. Smashing deal considering I picked up Civ 6 on the Switch very recently and there's cross save for it on the PC

Eh?



He means all his friends as he now won't have any after buying this game and then not going out for the next 3 months (which we can't do anyway). Or his family. Or his work - either way someone is going to be unhappy!
I'm another that played 6 for a little while and then went back to CIV 5. Just can't get fully into it like I did with 5.
I tried Civ 5 yrs ago, didn’t like,and went back to Civ 4.... still playing that mostly!

I've heard this a few times.. but I found some of the civ 5 civs make some really unsustainable (bizarre) choices during the later stages though.

I looked at buying civ6 the other day and the full civ6 bundle came to well over £100

Years after its still buggy and unbalanced according to reviews from long term players. (Although tbf it's got to the point accepting the necessity of civ bugs as a required part of the lineage.)

I'd love to stick with 5 and save a ton of money (if I get 6 I'm getting dlcs lol) but 6 seems so shiny some reviewers say it's the best yet.

-+ Great deal, thanks for letting us know OP

Sorry if this is a poor question - but do CDKeys purchases work with Steam on Mac? I'm fairly new to it and it CDKeys just says PC all over the place rather than any OS...
Jordan_Taylor26/03/2020 16:19

Eh?


Probably supposed to be “working from home” and will instead be playing this....
24.99 for the Platinum version, hmm
Edited by: "Muppethunter" 27th Mar
I've tried CIV's but couldn't get into it so went back to Colonization (playing right now).
Been playing this a lot lately, great game!
Will this work on Mac from the cdkeys code? It makes no mention of it on the system requirements etc.

This is the thing right. You'll get hooked into buying overpriced dlc

Hopefully there will be some offer before you get bored of the main game although you know those juicy dlc purchases are just sitting there for the plucking.

Link is going to a page with £8.99

I was literally going to forget the fact that I have endless unplayed games and buy this for nostalgia purposes.. but £9 seems like a psychological barrier saying "unneeded, play other games"..

I guess cdk thought they would jump on the momentum their high traffic and sneek the price up to £9 and people would buy it anyway.. yeah maybe if the product Devs had sorted the continued issues going back 3 years in a world where gamers have countless games to choose from.

You may want to alter the price on the deal as it's now wrong.

Gathering Storm is a must-have for me, it adds environmental effects, natural disasters, CO2, rising sea levels etc.

I loved 5, but 6 adds so much more! The graphic style of 5 I preferred (6 is more cartoony), but with the addition of districts alone, the improved civ relationship system and more I prefer this now

Yes, I redeemed on Steam. You have to dig around on the page to find that info out though, cause it looks standalone

Yeah, you can redeem on Steam and on Steam it's cross-platform. I play it on my iMac personally

The game is worth waaaay more than £9 in my opinion. This is an absolute steal.

I totally agree for some people without any civ games or those who don't prefer civ5 or who actually enjoy the (what some find annoying) changes from civ5 (which lots of civ fans have already).

Personally I decided to keep my civ 5 and wait until they drop the prices of the civ6 expansions to buy into that whole deal and it's some-woupd-say obstructive extra rule following needed to keep up, or ideally release 7 because I think they can do better than some of the civ6 mechanisms I'm not sold on (imo.. ymmv etc). You know I think some players of the original games would have wanted something a bit more special, in 2020.

And gfx? Please God in civ 7 make the graphics more REAL.. I want to taste the scent of musket-fire in the air and have a visceral experience. I swear there's a crapton of missed potential here. Visceral atmosphere please. So yeah it seems I'm not a fan of whoever is directing the series creativity, seems dull, seems designing for masses by a committee, while at the same time dropping that ball because the masses would 'love' a more visceral, gritty atmospheric blood, death, diesel and roses type of game. It needs different creative direction imo /end rant.

So civ5 with its dodgy AI still cool and bought some other big games instead plus got some awesome games reduced to £4 recently

(... The other factor is.. it's a lonnng game.. especially when busy etc.. otherwise I'd delve in for the hell of it Been a civ fan since civ 1 on A500.. still love civ 2 )

"Somewhat annoying" is subjective, but as you've identified it's all personal preference.

I didn't like 6 to begin with (nobody likes change, people get used to what they know, etc.) and it was mainly the graphics. Like you I suspect, I saw 5 as a nice representation of the history you're living/creating, whereas 6 was more "hey kids, come shoot a gun, hue hue hue". Once I got over this though, the gameplay really shines for me.

I think the happiness switch to amenities was a good move - I could understand the gameplay/balancing reason in 5 behind "more cities means less happiness" but in reality would an empire of 3 cities all become less happy if a fourth were founded? Probably not. I think they realised these concerns should be per-city and amenities solves that. Districts I absolutely love, cause they've considered placement as well, adjacency bonuses etc. You could argue that being near mountains doesn't help with research, but I was ok with the logic when I first saw it.

I'd be interested to know which mechanics overall you didn't like, cause for me while the graphics ironically move away from realism (which is the point of the Civ games for me really, realism!) the mechanics have gone 100% the right way. Ages/eras (R&F) work really, really well but the only thing they lack is a good explanation (before you work it out) of what kinds of things affect era score.

I agree that the AI is dodgy ("lol, nuclear Ghandi, lol") in the way it isn't flexible on trade deals, acts bizarrely stupidly from time to time and the fact that "more handicap", while technically a difficulty increase, is not an AI level-up.

Also, regarding being busy - they've introduced cloud games now (asynchronous, so you take a turn, it notifies the next person, etc.). If you can put it down rather than saying "one more turn" repeatedly for two hours, that is
