It's probably the biggest update to the series in terms of how the game plays. Cities are no longer a single tile that own a bunch of tiles around them - the district system means that your city actually expands out to fill that space itself. Actions and discoveries you make out in the world affect how your civilization develops in terms of technology. Religion is there in the base game instead of having to wait for an expansion. The civics side of things has been completely revamped, with tech trees that work much like the normal science tech trees. There's a new policy "card" system introduced, where different government types can implement different number and types of policies. The main game map has had a huge visual overhaul that while it takes time to get used to, it's actually pretty gorgeous. Diplomacy, combat & promotions, great people - all have been redeveloped and feel new and fresh.
There is very little about the game that hasn't chamged at least a bit - and most of it by quite a lot. Yet they've still kept the core essence, so it still feels like a Civ game, but better.
Sure that what farm is nice, but it's probably time to pave over it and build an industrial zone to boost your production. One frustration in the past was having to build your city directly on the coast if you ever wanted to build ships in it. No longer - the harbour district can be built anywhere in the area of your city, while keeping the core of your city away from the coast, safe from coastal raiders.
Civilization V was pretty barebones at release, and while it did mature into a very well rounded game with expansions, after a few games I think it's safe to say that it's already at least the equal of Civ 5 with all of its expansions - so I can't wait to see what the inevitable expansions will bring.
The AI is beyond incompetent.
To be honest with you, I only completed Civ 5 on Deity because the AI was no where near as hard as Civ 4 (which I couldn't even complete on Emperor), with Civ 6 it's even easier than Civ 5 - the AI players are incapable of mounting a proper war against you. And if the war is overseas then forget it. In Civ 4 a computer player could turn up after declaring war with a sea armada of battleships and aircraft carrriers full of jets and absolutely lay waste to your territory. In Civ 6, a player declares war on me with a horseman and a bunch of warriors despite being in a later era, needless to say they were quickly polished off. Even in the industrial era, the computer has the ability to build contemporary units yet is still fielding ancient warriors against me. The computer is incapable of mounting a land-sea-air war effectively. Civ 4 AI was way better than anything since in terms of military combat.
Whilst I broadly like the rest of the game's 'fleshing out' (many of the features that appear to be new seem to be in fact what was hitherto running behind the scenes) I did prefer Civ 5 graphically, and now there is not much distinction between eras since everything is so flexible - it means you don't really feel like the periods have changed significantly.
Verdict: The AI is a total deal breaker and means I won't be purchasing this series again until I read the reviews telling me it's fixed
My main comment when playing, kept coming back to 'why have they fixed something that wasn't broken'?
Generally, I preferred Civ 5 graphics. I find the caricatures of leaders irritatingly childish. Similarly irritating is the use regional accents - one would have been fine but, having all speaking parts use them is particularly grating. Some of the improvements, like districts are interesting but, why the developers have taken away the ability to change city names is unfathomable and for me, takes away some of the fun and enjoyment.
I liked the civic, envoy and policy developments - they helped make for a rounded game. The ability to name units is reminiscent of Alpha Centuria.
Overall the game is a bit boring, sometimes at later stages of the game you just have to click the next turn button, it is not well balanced, hopefully it will become a great game after the expansions packs in the future, but at the moment CIV V is a much better and enjoyable game, so is civ IV
