Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth is a real-time strategy game in the Sid Meier's Civilization series, hailed by many fans as the 'spiritual successor' to the critically-acclaimed title "Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri".

Reception[edit | edit source]

The game has met with mixed reviews since its release, with many claiming that the game, while feeling technically solid, lacks 'soul', or a feeling of immersion like it's immediate predecessor, Civilization V, or even Alpha Centauri. Many aspects are compared to Sid Meier's Civilization V, most notably the diplomacy, and the sponsors (the in-game equivalent to civilizations or factions); some aspects, such as the wonders, and the tech web have felt inferior to what is offered by Sid Meier's Civilization V.
