Hello community! I have heard a lot of negative comments about Beyond Earth recently. Some are saying its going to be a worse version of Civ V, or that everyone should just wait for Civ6 to come out. Some are saying that they are going to wait to buy this game till they know if its going to be good. Very ignorant thinking. The Civ series has been great. They have continued improved the game with every new version that has come out. Civ as a series had only had one design limitation. Staying true to history. Beyond Earth removes these limitations giving the Civ designers the ability to use the best game design possible. This is already a better strategy game then Civ V. More meaningful choices from the load out, unit selection and tech web. Better, more strategic expionage and trading. More advanced strategic culture tree. Without the historical limitations that the older Civ games have. Beyond Earth has the mechanics and game design that Sid Meier and the entire Firaxis staff chose to advance the genera. Most likely if there is another Civ game, they will use a lot of what we see in Beyond Earth to start their new game. Anyone waiting for their next game instead of playing BE now, will be 2 generations behind. Of course bugs and glitches will be found. Game probably won't have perfect balance day one, same with any Civ game that's come out. Whoever does not buy this game day one is missing out on the greatest and soon to be most popular Civ game ever made. Time to go pre order the game!
