My impressions so far, this is just a reskinned Civ V but with a new tech tree to play with. There are no noteworthy innovations here. The mechanics and gameplay and graphics are the exact same as Civ V. The jump from Civ 4 to Civ 5 was big. But Civ:beyond earth is more like a fancy user-created mod than a full-fledged new Civ game. Definitely not worth the $90 they are charging australian customers. This is more of an expansion pack than a full new game.

Bought it, after 2 hours regret buying it.

The game feels like a mod.. a badly made mod.

Of the top of my head: why is it that the heads of other factions have 1 / 2 lines of text for every single action?
