I’ve now had a copy of this game for almost a month and let me tell you, there is a lot to say. I probably won’t post a review or breakdown any time soon (mid-year coming up) but I’ll see if I can fit it in somewhere.
One thing I will say now is that my first playthrough took just under 36 hours… and that was me attempting to rush through it. I can easily finish a standard Civ 5 playthrough in less than a few hours, but Beyond Earth is something else entirely when it comes to standard game pace.
Hopefully I’ll have a review up soon, I’ll have to give you a breakdown some other time (that shit takes ages to write, mind my language). In the mean time, keep your ear to the ground and I may just surprise you.
