Loving it so far. Best out of box Civ/Firaxis experience ever. (Other than Civ 2 maybe).

A few quirks and bugs but content wise it's amazing as a vanilla release, all the important mechanics are there and much better integrated than they were in the Civ IV/V expansions. Cities actually take a bit of effort to plan out and specialise. They have taken a lot of queus from Endless Legend but communicated the systems a lot better.

Still in my first game at Prince with 7 other civs, Egypt is wrecking all of us and my continental rival matched my tech with numbers and high production in our first short war so I took the snivelling peace offering. Maybe I should have pressed my luck and taken a city to reduce the future threat but seemed too risky with most my units spending time being rotated for healing. I doubt I'll win but seems like it's going to be fun not winning, like in paradox games.

My one hope might be culture victory. Had Shakespeare pump out some plays and I think i'm the first to get aircraft and archaeology, so might be able to win on tourism before Cleopatra converts the world to Confucianism.
