An interesting but safe alternative to Civilization with some clear flaws and limitations in certain mechanics. On the whole, however, Humankind is an excellent experience with plenty of replayability.

Humankind is an interesting but fairly safe riff on historical 4X that doesn’t always rise to meet its potential.

August 16, 2021 |

HUMANKIND is as deep as you could possibly want from a 4X strategy game, but the constant addition of new things to think about never feels overwhelming because everything’s explained so well, and often with a good bit of humour too. It’s an excellent game, and if you’ve never delved into the 4X genre before, this might be your best chance to do so.

A highly competent alternative to Civilization but the list of unequivocal improvements is disappointingly short, with an unfortunate lack of real innovation.
