7/10
Leana Hafer (IGN)

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.
