Now I've been playing for a bit and come to the conclusion that I don't like it. I'm really saddened, because I thought this would be a turning point from Civ5 which also disappointed me. Really, really sad! I won't ever pre-order anything from Firaxis anymore, because this game is clearly not ready yet. Maybe it'll take two pricey expansions to make it work. Again. Lesson learned. Civilization's glory days are clearly over. Cheers.
