Civilization VI has a very positive review from critics in overall to start with and porting the game to Nintendo's next gen handheld console Switch is probably one of the best things that are going to happen to the franchise.

Aside from the few rough edges the game has in it, the strategic depth will keep you engaged to the engaging experience. An expansion, Rise and Fall was also released back in February this year, which was accepted as a worthy companion to the base game as well.
