One of the best PC to console ports ever, with the strategy great working impressively well on the Switch and opening up the series to a whole new audience.

Firaxis Games has done a magnificent job of porting Civilization 6 to the Nintendo Switch. While the PC version offers superior graphics and controls, you won’t be able to put this Civilization 6 Switch port down. It retains the series’ effortlessly addictive gameplay and is the perfect title for newcomers and long-time Civilization fans alike. Just one more turn.

Civ VI released two years ago for PC and has grown through updates, tweaked gameplay and DLC since then. The Switch version is just the base game, but that's more than OK. There's plenty to sink your teeth into, providing hours upon hours of unique experiences, accompanied by a divine soundtrack to really get you in the mood for building nations. Civ VI is a titan of a game and well worth your time, even if you've already spent hours on the PC version, because, now it's portable, which is potentially dangerous to those who have jobs. Now the threat of taking “just one more turn” can haunt you wherever you go.

Civilization VI is a great adaptation of the strategy classic for Nintendo Switch. Controls need some learning, but the game is deep and fun (and we love local multiplayer).

Civilization VI for PS4 and Xbox One is a clear example of how to adapt a strategy game from PC to consoles. Thanks to its interface and controls we don't miss playing with the keyboard and mouse.

An excellent conversion for one of the best Civs to date. Great interface, good performances. Too bad for the battery drain, but with two full hours playtime of it's very reasonable and acceptable, considering the quality of the port.

Civilization VI on consoles is basically the same game that you can play on PC.  While the controls will take a little bit of getting used to, this is one of the best strategy games you can get at the moment and it's finally available on consoles with very few, if any, sacrifices.

Civilization is a legendary strategy franchise, and to finally get it on Xbox One is a dream. Just be warned, this is one hell of an addictive game.

In general, the port of the best PC game of 2016 turned out to be good, but technically weak compared to the original version. However, the gameplay is not simplified, and this is very important. Civilization VI is an ideal strategy game for playing on the go, wherever you are. We hope that developers will release a patch with visual upgrade and multiplayer mode.
