its an indie game going up against a 500 pount gorilla (civV), most reviewers are going to see it through that lense. not much can be done about it.
besides, the game ISN'T that impressive just yet. it has great potential, but if they are reviewing with the gold version, then its probably not in great shape. most reviewers don't review based on what a game could become with proper support, they review based on what a game is at this moment. its unfortunate, and puts indie studios at a severe disadvantage since they generaly cannot afford to put in the months of polish that a big studio like Blizzard can.
best thing the community can do is to give as much feedback as possible, keep playing and keep spreading word of mouth as the game improves.
