"Civilization: Beyond Earth is not a flawless game. It’s AI annoys the piss out of me, the bugs bothersome, and the feels extremely similar to Civilization V for obvious reasons. Yet, despite these complaints I remain addicted to Beyond Earth. It has wrecked my sleeping and eating cycle as I continuously utter “One more round… one more round…” I am somewhat more addicted to this than I was for Civilization V, the reason for this is because I have no clue what I am doing. It feels the same, but the revamps done have truly made it feel completely different despite looking very similar. The game still manages to stand on it’s own two feet despite what people have been saying."
